weekend candy

trying to sort through my piles...

dressing it up-with edits

i can never get enough bows and ruffles...

to do... this one needs to be shortened. at the moment it is 80's tea length. with a snip and a hem it will be good to go.

memphis style for mel

this awesome necklace was posted on the decades blog

it is described a "memphis" style jewelry. it made me think of studying furniture styles with my dear friend mel. at the time i convinced her that i was going to start collecting memphis style furniture because at the time it seemed like the underdog style. she thought i was crazy. maybe i should start collecting memphis style furniture now. i would start with this...

love it or loathe it, memphis style with its color and kitsch is back
hmmm.

tickled pink

yummy food at jitlada in hollywood. but i was fascinated with the the decor when i went to the ladies' room. great attention to detail. notice the styrofoam in the silk plant. and the shiny scotch tape applied to hold up the pink wallpaper border. girls like pink, therefore decorate with pink. not. but the effort is undeniably charming...
