A cowboy got in to my grandma's closet.

A cowboy got in to my grandma's closet. He set a wild bull free, grabbed an old sweater and some sturdy boots and dropped them off in my closet! Amazing right?...clearly. 

you can't tell but the tights have little diamond cut outs all throughout them
i love high waisted skirts, so feminine and pretty

Modern Family was a re-run last night! Gah all the seasons are coming to an end. I was working all day and late evening, so thank goodness for pre-recorded TV. I wish it was not called PVR, how boring compared to the states named, Tivo. So much more cuter, and don't we all love a little cuteness in our lives?

Falling Slowly

So in to hair pieces right now. Must figure out how to make them for self.

Yesterday I went thrift store hunting in Guelph. Got so many wonderful pieces to start building my new collection! Remember 20% of my sales this month is going towards Red Cross to help aid Japan. 

I have 100 more pages to read before book club tonight! We are reading The Red Tent, by Anita Diamant. My brothers and sisters marathon has had to be put on hold.

wild in the jungle

Win free Jewellery in My spring Giveaway. Enter Here

My favourite animal is probably cats. 
Tribute to the Cheetah's in my life. Roar.

Jungle cats.
When I was younger, I used to go to a zoo where you could stand so close to the cage, about 10 feet from the lions, tigers, cheetahs and jaguars. My favourite memories, beside the cotton candy machines, the talking parrots on your shoulder, the ginormous butter milk snakes trainers trying to get you to hold them (are they NUTS), was hands down funniest memory when my brother got PEED on through the fence by a TIGER.

The tiger thought he was a threat to her cubs (he was like 8 at the time....real scary tough 8 year old though! :S oy) It was like a fire hose had been turned on and shot out the fence. Pee Spray everywhere. It was a smelly rest of the zoo walk, and an even smellier ride home.

Sweater: Preloved store on Queen st.
Top: Lace creme top from winners
Pants: high waisted with elastic waist band (score right!?) thrifted Chez Thrift
Shoes: Thrifted, Chez thrift

Purse a wiki what what?

 It's a shoe, it's a's just your average girl with a beautiful....purse?

Inside. Carrying my new laptop

It's a shoe, it's a's just your average girl with a beautiful....purse?

Wrong's a girl with a lap top carrying case.

Awesome sauce eh?
But what makes the sauce so awesome you may ask?

That a brand new 15 inch macbook pro fits inside this lovely case. She came in the mail today. She is a beaut. She looks stunningly gorgeous inside, beside, upside down, turned around, anyway with this laptop bag.

The pleasure I am getting from having a new computer (My mac computer of 6 years called it quits on me) is almost as good as stumbling across a piece of old jewellery and getting a jolt of "wow this is fabulous and needs to worn today." oh my goodness. I. am. ecstatic.

baby it's cold outside...

Enter to win my Jewellery Giveaway. Click here

Absolutely frigid again today, but the sun could not be brighter!
Sitting in the apartment cranking up the shoddy gas fireplace, that probably will have to be replaced next winter! There is still snow, and it's still freezing so alas. I bundled up...wool wool wool and more wool.  Feel a little like a sheep... but hopefully a well dressed sheep ha 
Elizabeth Taylor died yesterday. I listened to a lot about her on the radio and think I might pick up her autobiography. Married 8 times? That alone could be a book, let alone all the other conundrums and antidotes in her life

 I didn't even make myself a hot chocolate to enjoy the snowed in day. Oy. What was I thinking? What else did we used to do as little children on snow days. Build forts in the snow?
