Dear Favorite Old Lady

August 11, 2011


  I’ve never met you, but I know a lot about you. We probably would have been friends. You liked shoes. You had hundreds of pairs of shoes. You loved holiday decorations. You must have had rooms and rooms full of them, for every holiday imaginable. You were  fancy. Like glittery blouses and gold lame’ […]

Heaven on a Side Street in Pocatello

November 14, 2010


While in Pocatello, Idaho a few months ago, I happened upon a magical place.  It is located on East Second Avenue, and boasts a pretty hefty claim on the window… “One of Idaho’s Most Interesting Stores.” The variety of things in the windows had me intrigued.  I was in a hurry, but I coulldn’t help […]

Camo, You Know, for Huntin’ Season. (muzzy deer…)

September 20, 2010


Muzzy is apparently slang for “Muzzle Loader” which is a kind of gun that is easier to get a deer killing permit with. Who knew? (I work in an industry dominated by dudes who knew. And know. And take time off to go shoot animals.) Last night my sisters and I were at Torrid and […]

Thrift Stores Do Exist

June 29, 2010

Aqua for rain? No, I just really wanted to wear this sweater.

May 18, 2010


But it did rain.  A lot. I bought this sweater on Saturday.  I was wandering around Target looking for something to throw over a little black dress to go to Salt Lake City’s Fashion Night Out.  I saw this sweater hiding on the back of a rack arm, with a clearance tag on it, in […]

Rebelling Against Winter

April 28, 2010


Winter can suck it.  Utah Spring is just an extension of Winter, in which we get teased with 70 degree days before bouncing right back to snow, and then within days of snowing, it is a hundred degrees and we have Summer. Today is one of those back-to-winter days, as will the next few days […]
