Grandma Vintage

Today I decide to go through some of my grandmas old jewelery. She passes away about five years ago and I forgot about her treasures my dad has saved. Here is a post I did about her and how beautiful she was. None of the jewelery is worth much its just pretty costume jewels. I know some arent very old but some might have been from her mother. Here are some of my favorites that I plan to wear. She had a  lot of screw back earings that I think I'm going to start wearing. My ears are gauges but they do look pretty in addition.

I would love to know what one is everyones favorites.

I heart it pt. 7

Friends are FUN!

This is my bestest friend Bri. I met her at school and I think we are two peas in a pod. Of all the people I met at school, its awesome that my favorite person only lives and hour away. She loves all things Beatles, Disney, and Star Wars. We plan to get matching tattoos and she will for sure be in my future wedding. Today she came over with her boyfriend (he is the silliest) to go antiquing and give my birthday present.

These are some of the things she got me.
-a cute little sewing box.
- a brass mouse
- the cutest owl ever
- a spaghetti cat.

 The coolest thing. I had recently bought the cat and dog to the left. I thought they were a pair. Bri bought me the cat on the right. She matches the kitty on the left. Now I'm not sure if there is a matching dog. I must find him/her!!!!

 Since we went antiquing I went to my favorite store with my favorite dog. My big standard poodle. I've talked about him before and I am in love. We always take a picture together. I think he loves me too.

 poodle poodle! My new pendent that I bought.

Loft Sneak Peaks

We finally moved it! After um.... 4 months of Mike living at my house. We made a big trip to Ikea and bought a bed, dresser, night stand, and a little side table. We also made a medium trip to Target and bought a bunch of things. These are some pictures of us trying to put everything in its place. You all know what I like, deers, owls, and kitties. Mike loves Star Wars, The Simpsons, wrestling, toys, and kitties. NOW MIX! It makes a funny modge podge of decor. Its funny, I am really good at building all the furniture. While I did that Mike did all the decorating. We have our rolls. :)

Our Queen size bed. I still am afraid we will break it.

Sadly we had to move Simba away from his brother and sister. It was sad but he is adjusting nicely. Give it a few years and they will all be together again.

 My table side lamp from Target. I love that green.

 This is the key to my new wardrobe. 

 The best chair in the world!

 Does it break your heart?

I love the view of this house. Its in Chicago but I thought it looked just like the Willy Wonka factory in the background. My mom said it looked like the roof tops of London too. I guess it will have to do now.

 Lots of boy toys.

Favorite photos

These are some of my favorite photos from vacation. I know it was about a month ago now but life has been busy. Or I've been lazy.

My boyfriend and I were driving around just to blow off some steam and we came across a tiny airport. I never knew there was one in the area. We found this WORKING telephone booth. I LOVE IT. Its so classic. I went in there and was shocked to find out it had a dial tone. It did offer gay sex on the inside but that okay.

 I love the zoo so much. I love all animals and this bunny.

I think I need to own a deer. It just makes sense. HOW THE HELL DID THIS DEER LET ME TAKE ALL THESE PHOTOS WITH HIM? I'm so glad he did.


This rollie pollie kitty live across from Mikes new house. He/she was so sweet.

Laying in the sun.

 I think the ugliest birds always have the prettiest feathers.

My most favorite graffiti ever!

My grandmas vintage pink umbrella.



I love wishing lanterns. They make me HAPPY
