~ Pop-up Shoppe: Number Four ~

Shola was sure missed at this month's market at Caitlin's, but fortunately for everyone who attended, a few fantastic new vendors joined the mix in her absence. Colleen brought beautiful blown glass jewelry {I nabbed a little something for KeltyJoanna had lovely photographs and cards for sale, and Alex sold kick-ass thriller books. 

The night also featured vintage threads and new crafts by Emily {I plan to wear my hair flower everywhere} and spring-time dresses by Caitlin {I think I'll finally break and get that cupcake skirt next time}... And then there was the guest of honor, Clyde {can you guess who it is from the photos below?}

Hope to see you next month...

~Redhead Crush: Maureen O'Hara ~

Oh, Maureen.

Your knock-out panache, fiesty approach to life, sweet Irish curls, heroine{ic} talents and subtle sensitivity leave me searching for the perfect limerick to sum it all up.

Stay tuned.



Have you seen any movies with Maureen? Which are your favorites?

~ Welcome to Glitter Gulch: A Poof Dress ~

It could have been the over-the-top, throw-back stewardness outfits I gandered before my trip last week.

It might have been the huge lacy underskirt I recently stumbled upon in the corner of my closet when digging for my favorite pair of heels.

Perhaps it was the glittery emerald material that I nabbed almost a year ago {and realized I'd done not a thing with since}.

Or maybe it was just VEGAS, BABY.

Either way, I got it into my noggin' that I needed to make a big, wide poof dress for Kelty and my 24 hour Vegas wedding adventure last weekend. So I expanded and shortened a simple pattern I already had to fit the bill. The result? A glitzy, wider-than-a-door-frame poof dress {and matching head thing}, born to roll the dice, strut the strip, raise the stakes and win big.

Thanks, Kel, for romping about with me and snapping/editing these!

~ Beating the Blues: Sunday with Karády {and Pál} ~

Feeling rotten on a rainy day is no fun, but having nothing better to do but cuddle up on the couch with my book and some music reminds me of when I was little and my dad would play Karády Katalin for us on lazy Sundays. Just melancholy enough to match one's mood, but with sweet romantic undertones to give some hope to the week to come.

Here's to Sunday.

PS- what do you think they're singing about?

PPS- this makes my desire to learn piano even more ardent. Amorous duets get me every time!

PPPS- if you like her music, email me and I'll send you a cd of her stuff.
