sometimes I don't finish things

I started making a doll of myself (is that a weird thing to do?) but haven't finished it. I really wanted a little doppleganger.

You can tell when I started it based on the hair colour.  I may or may not change my hair colour too often.

what i wore :: skirts!

head to toe:
necklace - c/o Paper Sparrow
shirt - levi's
skirt - thrifted
ring - c/o Maie Dae
shoes - c/o Blowfish

This is one of the pretty new skirts I bought. I think it is my favourite one and I really want to find some more with the same shape in different colours. Also, see my pretty ring! Savannah was so sweet to send it to me. I love old keys and it was a great idea to make them into cute rings.

Normally I can't stand when my hair fades but I am actually really into the way these colours are fading! Just pretend you can't see my super long roots, ok? ;)

new glasses

As some of you may have seen through twitter...I got cute new glasses!
I ordered my glasses from Warby Parker because I thought that their frames were adorable. I got 2 pairs because I just couldn't decide which ones I liked best. Here they are...
These ones are the Crosby frames. I love really large glasses (regular and sunglasses) and these ones are perfectly nerdy.
These ones are the Tenley frames. I love the cat eye look so much. Extra bonus...I feel very Amy Morby in these, which is a good thing!

I was very impressed with Warby Parker's customer service. My prescription was written in a strange way that I couldn't interpret so I emailed them and they asked me to scan in/take a photo of the prescription. I guess it was missing some information so they phoned my eye doctor and got it sorted out! How awesome is that?

Probably the best part was how fast I received the glasses. I placed my order on Monday night (late) and I had my glasses in my hot little hands by Thursday! I am very impatient when waiting for things to ship so this was just the best thing ever to me. Impressive.

Do you have a pair of Warby Parkers? I would love to see which pair you chose!


ps. I am not being paid to tell you how much I love my glasses...I am just truly a satisfied customer!

The lovely miss Thursday from My Girl Thursday
(excuse me Chantilly...I just realized I made a typo on your motto. it should say "happiness is homemade". But come's totally handmade too, right? umm...i suck)

Tera and family from Tera Sue

Meredith from One Sheepish Girl

Amy Morby from A is for Ampersand

Plus a few special requests...

The lovely ladies from Tiny Sea

5 fave friday

5. vintage radios
There are so many pretty colours! I have been thinking about radios big time since we saw a whole bunch while antique browsing with Kaylah and Kevin. Now I am kind of dying for one!

4. mid century dining sets

I really don't know how much longer I can go on without one. My obsession is getting pretty serious. One of my friends has a sweeeet set and I may just have to steal it. (i'm only half joking)

3. pretty wall displays

2. cute book ends

1. pretty glasses

I have been thinking about home decor a lot lately (in case you can't tell by this post). I absolutely can't wait to not live in a basement and to be able to make a cute little home for Ivan, myself and the kitties. We are on our way to a home inspection today so cross your fingers for us!    

I hope you are all having an amazing Friday!
