Diner Vibes

A diner breakfast can't be beat! (Even if no one in California knows how to make a proper biscuit!)

Face Time

It's been a while since I've had plastic doll faces to sell...cute or creepy?

Rest In(Sect) Peace

 I found two deceased insects yesterday. One of my bee girls and this lovely "june bug" (they are really figeater beetles).
RIP, buggies!

Button Button

 Is there much more fun than sorting through a great big tin of vintage buttons?
Here are some of the treasures I them! There were even some religious medals in there. Fun fun fun!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

I feel like maybe she's judging me...kiss kiss, Miss Mae!

Glow Time

I don't love petunias, as a rule, but I thought these were quite pretty...

Two Fun Things I'll Definitely Do Again (Props to David Foster Wallace)

When your friend comes to town, you also might consider playing mini golf--we did!
 Alas, this was the only hole with a moving object.
 And we won't discuss how politically incorrect some of these "tikis" actually are...

 It was fun...and I actually won. Which is amazing considering I have NO hand/eye coordination whatsoever.
 And then: BOWLING! I love the smell, the noise, just everything. I am a terrible, terrible bowler, but it was really fun (and tiring! And my legs, butt, and right thumb hurt the next day). I will consider it a successful bowling excursion the day I do not have any gutter balls. BTW, I did NOT win at bowling (see aforementioned gutter balls). Next time!
 The day was capped off with beers at Societe. A very fun day indeed!

Under the Sea (Sort of)

 When friends visit--and a good friend DID just visit, yay--we often like to go to the Birch Aquarium.

"Hello," says this ultra-weird (and, let's face it) creepy eel.
 Dr. Seuss much?
 I'd love some fabric that looks like this.
 Under the sea or outer space?
 Yellow lips!
 Disney fish?
 Pretty colors!
 Drama queen!
 Show off.
 "May I help you?"
 Dr. Seuss much Part Deux.
The end.

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Someone was not all cooperative when I tried to make her look festive for the Fourth of July. I'm not naming names, but...

Cafe con Cats

My friend D. and I went to the Cat Cafe today, which is exactly what it sounds like: a place where you can drink beverages and pet cats. The cats are all adoptable. 

 This is a gorgeous Bengal mix.
 This one is called Diva.

They were all very sweet!

Fourth Forth

 Time once again for the neighborhood Fourth of July parade. It has gotten quite large, which is fun (I mean, "large" relatively speaking!).
 Our doggie friend Mika.
 A kindred elder dog spirit.
On the move!
Tallulah Mae is a spectator. She enjoyed it more this year, I think, because she is now almost completely deaf: no unpleasant scooter/bicycle/skateboard/wagon sounds!

Fun fun! I love our 'hood.
