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’ […]

Salad Dressing. Cupcakes. Don’t Even Worry About It.

March 13, 2011


Last Thursday was one of the guys I work for’s birthday.   Nobody told me.  What were they thinking? Don’t they know who I am? Don’t they know I will take any reason I can to make a treat? I decided that I would bring cupcakes on Monday, which means I would bake them tonight. […]

November 14, 2010


A few months ago, some ladies and I got together for a vintage cocktail party.   We decided that afternoon that it would be the first of many. A few weeks ago we got together again, with a different vintage theme.  The 80s.  And microwaves. I was at a thrift store with my sisters one Saturday […]

My adorable friend Stacey […]

A Fancy Wallet with Adorableness Hiding inside

September 16, 2010


I found this wallet in a thrift store in Richmond, Utah on a recent field trip.  It was very inexpensive, and I had to have it because it looked to be in such perfect condition. I opened it up to explore the condition and functionality of the inside, and found a tiny notepad, still intact, […]

Some Kind of Flowery Vintagey Whiskey Cocktail, plus Bonus Neurosis

September 15, 2010


I attended a vintage inspired cocktail party last month with some absolutely fantastic ladies.  Heather (Who writes Examiner articles about local lunches and fresh foods) opened up her beautiful home and patio to us and Tiffany (who writes about really great food that she spoils her lucky family with at Food Finery), Becky (Who writes […]
