Brotherhood of Man

Ok, "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" is probably my favorite musical. Ever. (To help illustrate just how much I love this musical, two of my dogs are named Smitty & Rosemary. P.s. Those are 2 of the 4 female characters in the show. Their brother was named Finch.)
When I found out they were reviving it, I was so happy! Then I found out Daniel Radcliffe was playing Finch. I don't have anything against Daniel Radcliffe really, I was just worried that it was stunt casting and they would ruin my favorite musical.

Oh my stars. I was so wrong. I could not stop smiling during this clip! I am going to have to figure out a way to get to New York so I can see it. I must!

I Love Mondays

Yesterday was a really good day. Really, really good. I got a bunch of fun stuff in the mail and at Ikea + Anthro.

So cool, right?

Isn't the choking warning hilarious and informative?

I took my Mom for cupcakes at Sprinkles and they were AMAZING! Neither of us had ever been, but we are planning on going back. Frequently.

I bought some really cool cards. I could spend hours looking at stationary and greeting cards.

The receipt just make me laugh.

Yeah. Mondays just might be my favorite day of the week.
I'll be back in a few days with pictures of Tallulah Suzette (my new Blythe doll)!

Blythe Dolls

So, I've had Blythe on the brain a lot lately. There are so many really talented people who create things for and customize Blythe dolls! Not to mention all of the people who just photograph Blythe girls! It really blows me away sometimes. I want to start sewing clothes for my girls and I am equally inspired & intimidated by some of the stuff out there.
Just take a look,

See what I mean?
Happy Monday!

P.S. Happy Birthday, Hayley Mills!

Lazy Sunday

Today is my first real day off in... 3 weeks? It might actually be 2.. I can't remember. Anyways, I have done nothing "productive" today. I've spent most of the afternoon perusing photos on tumblr & weheartit. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. I've also been checking out listography. I love that site! Since lists are on my brain, I'm going to make one here!

1. This Blythe girl is on her way from Japan to come live with me. I'm so excited. She's the first Ginger Blythe I've gotten! I haven't picked out her name yet, which is odd. I usually have names picked out before I purchase them.

2. They showed "Tangled" last night in the park and I worked the concession stand. I had so much fun!

3. My Sister told me about Louise Rennison's mini book called "How To Make Any Twit Fall In Love With You". I read it this morning. Fabbity Fab!

4. I really want to get this dress for my Blythes. I actually wouldn't mind having one for myself. I love all of Pomme-Pomme's clothes.

5. The Alice In Wonderland paintings by Emily Martin are making me extremely happy. I pretty much love everything she paints, but these are particularly fantastic.

6. How cute is this picture?

Well, my lunch is almost ready, so I'm going to go read a book and eat some soup!
I hope the rest of your Sunday is wonderful!

Pretty Cake

It might just be because I am really hungry right now... But I think this cake is gorgeous. It's so clean and Spring/Summer-y. LOVE!

My Foray Into Sculpting Pt.2

About a billion years ago (a.k.a. January) I told you all how I did a 3 day clay workshop. Well, almost two weeks ago we all went back to pick up our characters and paint them!
  She looks nothing like what I thought she would when I was sculpting her, but these are colors she chose.

She isn't entirely finished yet, she had an unfortunate accident in the kiln so I have to do something to fix her shawl and I'm going to add something to her hat... I just haven't decided what yet. I'm thinking about putting glitter on the pom-poms. We'll see what happens.
Also, don't be alarmed, I took these pictures right after I finished painting so Woody doesn't have his eyes yet.

This is Colonel Sanders who was made by one of my classmates. He actually looks A LOT like the artist.
  The class was so much fun. I definitely want to do more with clay. Now I just need to find the time!
Well, I need to be getting to sleep.
