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

yummy early spring lemons

an artist gussied up our fire hydrant


I was at Church and State on friday for lunch and i noticed they have an "absinthe ritual" posted on their bar pilar so i had to ask as i was leaving do they actually serve absinthe or was it kind of a joke? He said yes, we serve it! I said OK, i'll be back later...
I have never tried it since it has been illegal in the u.s. since 1915 and just became legal again around 2007. I love all of the old imagery making it look like the devil in a bottle.

And ofcourse Degas' L'Absinthe.

BTW: If your at Church and State you must try their Tarte Flambée, delicious!

Twin babies!


They are sooo cute!!!

My Amy Butler-ish Pouf

I used approx 4 trash bags full of shreaded bills! to fill my pouf. I added a layer if quilt batting and another muslin inner lining layer to sandwich the batting in the center. That way since i knew i was using shreaded paper it would still be soft and fluffy to sit on, and it is! Also I put a zipper in on the bottom. That way if my pouf starts going flat i can just shread some more bills and stuff away.
