The Skull Is Stirring

This is a follow up to my previous post. I thought hand crafted cups for tea couldn't get any better until I received this belated birthday gift. A sugar stirring skull. A girl can never own too many skulls. Part of gift giving is knowing the recipients tastes and my friend was right on the mark here. Skulls rule.

Shopping Find of a Friend: Crafted Cups

Truth be told, it's tiny tea cups like these that make my life bearable. I enjoy green tea on a daily basis. It's my coffee and perhaps a bit of my religion. It's relaxing, nutritious and nice. To add to the enjoyment and benefits of drinkng green tea, it is best served in crafted cups. These are the beautiful find of a clothing designer friend who appreciates the esthetics in most things. These included. I wish they were mine. No secret and I get served organic green tea from Asia each time I have the pleasure of visiting. What a refreshing find. Go vintage. It makes life a bit more delicious.

Pieces of Me: Lady in Lace

With this post, we are encouraging you to #getdressedup. It doesn't have to be all of the time but sometimes, if not most of the time, is good. I don't mean fancy duds but just a bit of effort. Good wash and a groom and take a bit of time to choose something smart to wear. Aren't you smart? Then wear smart clothes. It shows you love yourself. You know what they say: If you can't love yourself, then you can't love anybody.

First Days of Fall Arm Party

Does that make it a farm party? It'd have to be a pretty fancy farm. 
Happy Fall, fashion lovers.

A Second Shoe Thought

This post is overdue. After regaling the brilliant idea to someone, my topic choice was initially & swiftly vetoed. That left me to ponder if readers would be as excited as I was with my new/old favorite find. It just so happens that my favorite shopping find of the past year are my second-hand Doc Martens. They are worn in and fabulous. I also bought them from a friend so there's that awesome aspect as well.

This was a shoe that was intended for the busy mother (true story!) and has over time, developed its own wild-style reputation. This is possibly the 4th pair that I've owned during my lifetime. They are uber cool and comfortable so it's definitely worlds colliding when it comes to Docs as a fashion choice. I encourage all of you to have a pair...or two. The person who initially vetoed my post for its recycled nature owns several pair. Jealous much of the silky bows and unique pink-plaid lining on mine? Just saying..

More shoe shopping...
