The comforts of Tokyo Milk

I miss my sister. She's off doing her thang in Scotland right now and I'm super proud of her. I tucked one of these spritely things in her care package. Picked it up from Anthropologie, perhaps one of the most unique and awe-inspiring shops ever; of course, everybody knows that but I digress. This solid perfume is crafted by Tokyo Milk, a big favorite in this house. The scent reminds me of perfume I wore in my junior high days filled with sharing clothes with my sister, building tree houses out back, and family camping out at the beach. It's just the perfect dose of rosy, clean nostalgia.

Impressive Wingspan

A simple yet stunning kind of "house charm". You don't have to resort to country fair wind chimes on your back porch. Crafted by Alena Hennessey from hydrostone, this seemingly weightless fowl is just the kind of outdoor emphasis you need to define your style; elegant, simplistic, naturalistic. Just make sure your neighbors don't steal it. Hey, if you were my neighbor, I would, I'm just saying...

Succulent Wedding

Tending To It: Notes From A Garden Hoe just blows me away with its photographs of succulents and other sustainable floral arrangements. I just love succulents period! Here is a wedding they did in conjunction with Mi Iwasaki of mi-workshop whose wooden arrangements offer simple yet ingenious design.

Paper Genius

Love these paper wonders from A Quick Study on Etsy. It just makes organization seem more fun. Somehow, some way, we will all be organized some day.

X-mas leftovers

I don't think I've ever shown you my semi-fancy giftwrap from Christmas. This is the first time I've even cared about how I wrapped my gifts this year. Thought it would be a neat photo opportunity. If you're a gift wrap nut, you'd know the red, black, white, and green wrap was courtesy of IKEA. It was an awesome buy because I could use this wrap for any occasion other than Christmas. In fact, it's a little Alice In Wonderland-ish. This is my new signature wrap for sure

Prints of nature

This Amanda Green bedding set is blissful. Something about it feels so organic and peaceful. Check it out on Cherry and East. Just add chirping birds and rustling leaves.

Little Candy

Fred Flare is currently offering this adorable Crystal Flowerette Ring to signal the coming of spring. The tantalizing gleam off the jewelstone is calling out the magpie in me. Does a mere $14.99 tempt you to whip out your credit card, big spender?

Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance"

It's a shoe made from the carcasses of dead Aliens

This one actually looks cool in a Steampunk sort of way

This one... I had no words for. I said... whoa..

While reviewing Alexander Mcqueen's new Spring 2010 line I came across his new shoe installments. Just the name 'Alexander Mcqueen' evokes words like "bizarre" "exotic" "marches to his own tune". Just the kind of fashion that belongs in a Lady Gaga video! Check out "Bad Romance"
