Gingham Overalls


I made these little gingham check overalls for my twin nephews.






They are so dapper in these. The hats my sister got them set it off perfectly.






They loved looking down at their new outfits, the big and small black and white checkers had their interest and curiosity, and chewing on the big buttons (that i made sure to sew on extra secure for them) .

Mayonaise

I love this song by Smashing Pumpkins.
(love the roar of the crowd as the first strings are played).

This is such a sweet cover of Mayonaise by beyondtheblackhole.

Hello, that beehive and those daisies - amazing


All of these are photos i took of various family albums that my grandma kept completely organized and labeled throughout the years. There are volumes and volumes, and i treasure them so. She always had her camera in her hand or within reach and documented our lives, every birthday party, every christmas, easter, every occasion and labeled in chronological order in beautiful photo albums filled with her hand writing. I love these things. And, Yes, i photographed photographs. I do these kinds of things, like photographing the tv.

My Mom



Love love love
She is so pretty.
(And love the decor)

my so called life


back in the 90s i used to watch this show all the time.
Ahh, Jordan Catalano aka jared leto. What a hottie.

I used to wear the same shit, huge baggy pants, plaid flanels, docs.
the sundance channel played the first episode the other night, i forgot how good this show was.






Angela: "It just seems like, you agree to have a certain personality
or something. For no reason. Just to make things easier for
everyone. But when you think about it, I mean, how do you know
it's even you? [bunch of guys noisily run down the hall]
And, I mean, this whole thing with yearbook -- it's like,
everybody's in this big hurry to make this book, to supposedly
remember what happened but it's not even what really happened,
it's what everyone thinks was supposed to happen. Because if
you made a book of what really happened, it'd be a really
upsetting book. You know, in my humble opinion."

Life is so hard, Jordan why are you so hot?

Damn, I would be upset too!

Go International at Target






So I learned my lesson from my previous Target designer launch and went early so i wouldn't miss out. OK, I showed up before the store even opened and waited outside for about 10 minutes. There were surprisingly few people (or psychos like me) lining up outside. I grabbed all the the dresses that i had cyber-stalked and scurried into the dressing room. I was so disappointed that the pale pink Rodarte dress that was my #1 pick looked like complete shit on me. Great on the hanger, crap on me. It totally washed me out and hung all wrong. Oh well. I got the Thakoon one that is incredible and i grabbed the pink and orange Tracy Evans number.
Overall satisfied.
But the end of my shopping adventure there were bunches of girls in the dressing room and we were all comparing fit and style, you know..."This one looks like shit on me but looks great on you, etc etc. What fun.

Giant Pink Bunny









I was looking at google earth images after the tsunami in Japan and came across this giant pink bunny in the Alps. I can't believe i havent see this before. It was hand knitted by a group of artists called Gelitin. So dope. I love the giant gaping mouth, i would love to jump inside. I would love to walk along the legs and lay on it's huge tummy. It is expected to be on the Italian mountian top until 2025 so who know, maybe i will get my chance!


BTW: this is funny
