These are My Shoes, Those are Your Shoes, You've Got Issues

I found these bedazzled gems at the Goodwill in 
Grants Pass, OR for $2.99! What more could a gal want?!

Sweater Weather

Recognize those astronauts? Those two good looking (or bad looking depending on who you ask) fellows are none other then Thompson & Thompson, beloved characters from Tin Tin. Recognize that gal? It's me, it's me in my new cherished vintage Thompson & Thompson on the moon sweater that I purchased at a flea market in Annecy France! The price is going to killing you, but I bought the sweater  for only 2 euros (which is about $3.75 these days). All I have to say to the old woman, and the little boy who sold it to me is thank you sweet sweet suckers (ok, ok, get rid of the "suckers" and add "people"). 

My older brother Jonah just adored Tin Tin when we were kids (though he might use a different word then "adore" to describe his interest). An-y-ways, at the same flea market there was a tiny little TinTin vest (jean with an embroidered TinTin on the front, perfect). At the moment when I made eyes with the vest, I  was moneyless, not a coin in sight. Here's where the mistake comes in, I didn't search the market to find Alex with the money to buy that vest for my brother. Now before you say "what would a grown man want with baby's TinTin vest?" or even "Why are there so many TinTin things at this Flea Market?" The answer is, my brother and his lovely wife Jessyka are on the verge of being proud parents to my future niece Harper (due date is October 9th).  This long ramble has a point...I should have purchased that Tin Tin vest because nothing says family like an aunt in a TinTin sweater, and niece in a Tin Tin vest  (DAMMIT).

You Say Goodbye, and I say Hello (in the Tune of The Beatles)

(Pumpkin Spice Late Day 2012- bye bye Trillium)
Today I begin my new job. I imagine it will be comparable to the pink set up above...sans everything but the bear mouse (that really does exist). Though I'm excited for new beginnings, I will miss my old job, and in particular working with this lovely coo coo (see you at the Delicate Doilies office sister... aka brunch)!

Nancy Sinatra...For Your Listening Pleasure

Put on your cha-cha heels, head over to the beach bon fire party, and fall in love (am I right or am I right?).

Delicate Doilies

Pop on over to Delicate Doilies to view the new shop goodies. 

Let's France (in the tune of David Bowie's "Let's Dance")

 Hello, and good evening to you and yours. To start off, I must say that I have missed you dearly over the past two weeks. We returned from our two week adventure in France yesterday night. Although I would love to describe in lengthy details about our tales of castles, kings, friends from far away lands, travels by planes trains (not to mention automobiles), museums, fantastic traveling companions, one year wedding anniversaries, the Alps, the Louvre, the plethora of  people taking photos of the Mona Lisa, the copious amounts of cheese, wine, winning (hardly), cheek kiss greetings, cheek kiss slips and awkward greetings, and so on, and so on! I would love to spill the dirt on it all, though I'm feeling like a  big ol' bowl of jet lagged jelly (aka my brain). In the meantime please enjoy the photos above that represent just a sliver of the love, cheers, tears (not to be confused with the band Blood Sweat and Tears) from our vacation.

Je t'aime...

Our bags are packed and we are taking a flight bright and early to Paris, France.  See you in two weeks. 


 Thank you to Shola for the snaps, and to the good people at Value Village for the sublet of the brooch.

Happy Labor Day

...and nothing says labor day like a big ol' double scoop!
