So I crawl under my blankets.

This closely resembles my dream bedroom. The colors, small chandelier, curtains, blue chair, floors, door to a balcony, and note the mug on the bedside table. So comfortable, relaxing, and good-feeling. Except in my dream.. there aren't unnecessary pillows and the blankets look slept in. I think I would also change the bedside tables, and add these things:

I'll be your bird.

I've been listening to M. Ward in the late evenings for some days now; something about his voice is relaxing.
I've realized a certain comfort that can be found in a man cannot really be found in anything else. Like when a father tells you he is proud, and loves you. It means so much when he speaks his heart. Or the feeling of strength and comfort you feel when a man wraps his arms around you and hugs you meaningfully.

There are different ways men and women comfort each other, and makes the other happy. We need each other for whole completeness, and happiness.

I'll continue dreaming of a man with arms to consume me that I can call all mine, with a smile on my face.


Tell it to the volcano.

I love spring weather.

Know what else I love? Awesome shows at awesome venues. Couple weeks ago I saw Desert Noises (shout out to mi amigo Tyler for being a rad bassist), Miniature Tigers, and The Morning Benders at Velour. You must have a listen to all of their tunes.
I actually have no photos of this night. But I tell you what, one man from Miniature Tigers resembles that of John Legend.

Have a groovy week,

P.S. Made this long summer dress last spring, and just recently added the oversized hood in matching fabric. Dig it.

Drum roll...

So pleasant out today, quite a contrast to the winter storms we've been having. It's known as "sprinter" here (spring and winter). The much welcomed sun has scared the snow away and my bare legs aren't complaining!

This outfit is all thrifted and recycled:
* nude colored blouse- thrifted then altered
* creamy lace skirt- made myself from secondhand fabric
* deep red shoes with a bit of a heel- thrifted vintage
* tied leather belt- I snatched from my Dad before it could be thrown away

I'm currently crushing on pastel colors. Best include them in your wardrobe this spring and summer!

The summer sends it's love,

P.S. I've submitted this outfit for a contest, help me out? Go HERE to vote and comment.
Ends Sunday.

All it takes is a little faith and a lot of heart, sweetheart.

This afternoon I'm here in a small town library on a cozy round chair positioned next to the window. It may be the only place to get wifi. But it's a nice hideout spot from the crazy weather outside- real dark, wind howling, half raining half hailing ferociously.. wish I had a mug of hot chocolatey goodness.

Stumbled upon Nadinoo just now..

An excerpt from the 'About' section:
"Celebrating the lady from era’s gone by, Nadinoo invites timeless silhouettes and detailing to create it’s vintage felt collections. Designs include boastful bows, flirtatious frills and beautiful bell shapes in sumptuous silks and cottons from Liberty of London prints."

Quite loverly, no?

All photos from Nadinoo site.

Love from a small town,

P.S. The only episode from the t.v. show Chuck I've ever seen this line was said:
