sweet little hands...

These are the precious hands of my baby niece Annie. She and my sister came to stay with Cody and me a couple of days before Christmas. I gave her sprinkles  - She loved them. I know they probably aren't the best thing to give her.. but she really didn't eat that many.. But it was so much fun watching her eat them.

And then she grew tired of eating them one by one and found an easier way....

Tuesday Tune...

Did you know that Zooey Deschanel was in the band She & Him? I just figured that one out.. I love her.. she is fun and starred in one of the funniest movies of all time - ELF. She was also one the cover of one of my favorite issues of Domino Magazine. Oh yeah - And the him... is M. Ward.  No wonder I like them.

a christmas long ago... well 1987...

This is a pic from Christmas 1987 - I was in fifth grade and had a crimp perm.. yes the crimp lasted for-ever.

Christmas 1987

I told the lady at the salon that I wanted my hair to look like I slept with it in braids and then took them out... Don't get me wrong - it was super cool.. at first.  I was even somewhat of a trendsetter when my step-sister marched right to the salon and got her one too. 
The day I got my beloved perm  - 11yrs old

The problem came a bit later - as it was growing out it was kind of a frizzy mess... The top 2 inches of my hair were normal - then there was crimp. I ended up getting it cut a little shorter to get the crimp out faster.. but I will never forget  - The Crimp Perm.

Pretty Pyrex...

When Cody and I got married - we got many nice gifts. One of my favorite gifts was some vintage Pyrex refrigerator boxes that were given to us by a sweet friend. They are the Turquiose ButterPrint sometime called Amish pattern. They are so cute and I love them.

I found this really cool collection on Flickr - which I love and covet even though I know it is wrong.

This is an impressive collection!

Tuesday Tune.. (On Wednesday)...

Hi all...  I have been busy away from the internet the past few days... Monday was Cody's birthday  - Tuesday I helped my parents move... It is kinda strange missing the internet a little....

I really like the melody from this song - Icarus  from White Hinterland... I have no idea what the lyrics say...  I think* this song was played on the Project Runway Season finale on the fashion week runway - then I heard it on a Revlon Commercial with Jessica Biel....

Etsy Finds + Butterfly Room...

A couple of weeks ago, I came across The Singapore House while cruising around on the internet( come to think of it I think it was Apartment Therapy).  Wow - I love the statement made by their Butterfly Room. From what I read - they have over 600 butterflies displayed..Oh how I would love to visit - too bad it is in Adelaide, Australia and not practical for a date with the mister this weekend.

This coolness inspired me to check out cool butterfly items I could score from etsy.

Check them out:

I love: Pioneer Woman's table

                                                           originally uploaded by Nothing But Bonfires.
I love love this table.. Do you know the Pioneer Woman? If not you are missing out on the best recipes ever. I always get rave reviews on all her recipes... You must stop what you are doing and make her cinnamon rolls pronto.

oh yeah - getting back to this table... I love it and I love that Holly Burns aka Nothing but Bonfires(my favorite blogger for years) took this photo.  My two favorite internet people that do not know me both in the same post. How's that for fun?
