ants for breakfast

This is a creepy cup & saucer.  It would be adorable with a traditional place setting at a formal event.  Happy Halloween!

I enjoy this brooch.  It would give a creepy flair to a daytime Halloween outfit.

something's bugging me

This blouse is calling to me and my imaginary credit card that someone else pays for.  It's funny how flys are so much cuter on fabric than in your house.

It's my braaaaaain!

These brain cupcakes are an awesome Halloween idea.  Making butter cream is a little beyond me (ok, so I didn't actually look at the recipe, but it sounds intimidating) but I bet I could fashion these out of good ol sugar frosting.  OK, now I'm hungry.

an old fashioned Russian Halloween

I have a little thing for matryoshka, and these are the perfect set to display for Halloween.  Adorable.

Uniqlo: a discovery of affordable clothes

My friends came to visit this weekend and left us with a tidbit of shopping advice: Uniqlo.  While exploring their site I came across a dress and a vest I must own.  Is it too early to make a list for Santa?

sparkle spikes

I love the soft hard play in these earrings. Lady like rockstar in one nifty package.

paint it sound

These prints are of paint being affected by the vibrations from a speaker. I wonder what song they were rocking out to.

architecture & rainbows, eh

Toronto! We went for the weekend and had a funtastic time! It was good to get away, and reconnect amidst our busy schedules. I especially enjoyed Frank Gehry's addition to the Art Gallery of Ontario. We also stopped off at Niagra Falls, which was a whole lot of cheesy fun. We took a tour behind the falls, where you can experience its "fury". Even more impressive than the falls is the spray that rises twice as high as the falls. A rainbow's always pretty cool too when you can get one.

The happiest hairdryer I know

Carl, you really know how to turn my frown upside down.


Sometimes looking at preserves with an adorable label is even better than eating preserves. This is not one of those times.

The Missus

Since I'm not able to work full time due to the lack of thriving metropolous around me, sometimes I end up feeling this way. And I don't even have kids!

Classin' up the Joint

The next time you're at a formal affair and feeling a bit clumsy, you can still maintain your business casual dress code while protecting your formal wear. See exhibit A:

My parents are visiting this weekend, so it's the perfect opportunity to sell them on this faucet for their new master bathroom.

never enough deco!

Here's an art deco beauty from 1stdibs. Can I take out student loans for jewelry?

wearable art

This takes Artistic Tile's window displays to a higher level. Who's gonna be the first to make a wearable fabric inspired by Li Xiaofeng's pottery dress? I would wear that.

Hurry! Half off Martha!

Martha's crafty goodness at Michael's is 50% off with this coupon! It's going to be hard to choose between the spider web or bat cling stickers for my windows and mirrors. They're both pretty irresistible.

floating on stair

These stairs from The Gray Hotel in Milan would do me in after one limoncello.


I wish they gave this test at job interviews! That would be much more fun than listing my strengths and weaknesses.

So true... SO true!

Thanks UO, couldn't have said it better myself!
