gotta keep movin'


i have been a bad little squirrel blogger as of late. been busy getting my terri planty biz ready for the unique la show. however i leave you with an image that inspires me to keep moving. whenever i get exhausted or feel the need to say, ugh! i look at this magic and am motivated to keep going and work harder. go lady power go! ride your wheels of creative glory!

thrifted and used


some recent treasures from the thrift hunts. more shots to come. i got a whole bunch of clothes but i keep wearing it and forgetting to document the good stuff. oh and that cute purse on the couch with the kitties. another example of lazy documentation. loved the vintage treasure so much i put it right into action. life is hectic these days. bare with me. i'll get better. :)

p.s. looey (the black cat) has white fur on his nose - because he is naughty and attached poor innocent nimbi. in this photo he is acting all cool, but he just got in trouble.

p.p.s. i did a cool diy project over at my other blog, terri planty...

venice day


i meant to post these venice beach photos so long ago. these were taken when erick family visited. oops. well here they are now! it was lovely little excursion! i still have to remove the big bag of shells and beach rocks that is spilling all over the back set of my car. :) a nice reminder of a good day.

p.s. i'll post of my garden stalking i did at the v-beach soon on my other blog, terri planty.

yoo lika da sauce?


friday night was one of many celebrations of my baby sister's bday and pizza time at my folk's house. nothing like making your own pizza! my dad has a rad pizza oven and my mother has some dough rolling / stretching / preparing skills. we each got to make our own pizza pies. all the ingredients were beautifully displayed on the table. it was really hard to make a decision because i wanted it ALL. i ended up garnishing my pizza with flowers. not surprised, are you?

i love having foodies for parents.

fired up


meant to post these photos last week. not this last saturday but the one before was extra lovely. hung out with super group of rad folks around a fire. the simple things in life. but my favorite part of the night was hanging out with lil cowboy (remember this guy). right when i got there he ran right up to me and sat in my lap. totally melted my heart. later he hung out in his mother's lap by the fire. so so sweet.

yes please


i think i need some more quilts on the outside of my buildings. via here.

jewel me

i was surprised to see some "real" jewelry on urban recently. personally i can't stand the cheap shit unless its vintage. i am a jewelry snob. so true. but things are looking up at urban. the collection of designers is expanding. above are my favorites. feel free to tell anyone who feels generous. :)

hanging out


getting those finishing touches done in the house. always trying to balance between a cool fresh look and a bit of a casual, unexpected collected, lived in vibe. i am a hippie, hoarding, color, texture, pattern crazy lady after all. so i was totally inspired by the above images. i love the way hanging something somewhere spontaneously or in overwhelming amounts creates such great visual story. and the horse... um. that is one well dressed horse. if i had one in my yard, that would be its uniform.

via here, here, via here and here(two of my fave selby shoots ever).
