the screamers

because i just can't

stop hoarding.  Got this at Salvation Army today for a buck fiddy.  Nice 1960's two tone cream and mustard label maker with the original box!  So far, I've labeled all my roommate's doors, computers, and the coffee maker. and the bathroom mirror.  It's reallllly fun. If you have any other ideas of good things to label please let me know.

my new baby

Yeahhhh, my new sewing machine.  Pictures don't do it justice, blah blah, I sound like a new mom.
see the white label??  there's spools of thread and needles on either side.

it was only $14. oh, but i realized too late it only does a straight stitch. boo.

Bolo Ties.  I've always liked western wear, but after seeing True Grit I got obsessed.  Nothing better than a shirt buttoned up all the way and a sweet bolo tie to top it off.  A great alternative to scarves or necklaces.   In my personal opinion, the bigger, the better.  Here's some sweet finds from etsy...
Circular Wooden Deer Bolo from TheWishingWardrobe
Reminiscent of a wall decoration in a log cabin...

Vintage Native American Head Bolo from Berkshiret
Wear this with a suede fringe jacket...tough as nails.

Silver, Turquoise and Coral Bolo from QualityVintage

Seriously classic.

Today I got a new sewing machine.  In drawings, it looks like this

but in real life, it's turquoise/green.  Made in Japan at some point in the 60s.  I'll have a photo of it soon.
