These are some of my favorite vignettes. I love the way people can take random objects and put them together in such beautiful ways. Enjoy!

Speaking of Polka Dots...

Dress: Ebay
Blouse: Thrifted
Shoes: A garage sale
Purse: I bought it from a lady I met at Goodwill who had an entire house filled with vintage stuff.

On my balcony (where this picture was taken) there was an entire colony of bees living in some of the old wood. We have coexisted very peacefully together for the last 6 months. Let me preface this story by telling you that I live in a very old building that has been renovated into apartments. There is still a lot of construction going on and today they decided to rip out the bee-infested wood. I was not aware of this as I went out to take some pictures on my balcony. As I'm smiling away for the camera I realize that I am completely surrounded by bees and they are not very happy. My photo shoot ended very abruptly when they started diving for my head. I was running around shrieking and flailing in such a way that got the construction guys attention and they started pointing and laughing. Very embarrassing.

I was looking through my computer this morning and realized I have a zillion pictures of the adorable Zooey Deschanel. I am a huge fan of her movies and am really excited to see both 500 Days of Summer and Gigantic (I discovered both trailers on the blog A Left Hand Endeavor). I know there are million blog posts out there about her, but I just couldn't help myself.

Rompers & Onesies

Have you every had clothing that just doesn't fit, but you can't bear to let it go. I have had this onesie for awhile now and planned to lose weight to fit into it. Unfortunately, it is so small I would have to lose 4 dress sizes just to zip it up. So it is going on top of my sewing pile for a rainy day.

Milla Jovovich

Milla Jovovich is in April's Elle Italy. The editorial is lovely, soft and springy. The warm pastel colors give a cozy feeling to all the pictures.
