...and so my adventures with estate sales continue. A few weeks ago a picked up a rickety nightstand off the sidewalk on my way to a local estate sale, where I found a few interesting things, including this what-I-thought-was-a-first-edition but is definitely not a first edition copy of "House On Pooh Corner". Also picked up a really old cookbook and some retro San Francisco maps to put up sometime.

Prettiest prints ever. And her story of how she got started is amazing. Here's a bit of it:

"Known for her spirited prints and signature blouse, Gaby Basora is quickly gaining international recognition for her line, Tucker. From her design studio in New York City Meatpacking District, Gaby designs exclusive prints inspired by National Geographic magazines, novels and travel mementos; be it a candy wrapper or an ashtray. Fabrics in each collection include a variety of floral, animal and abstract prints that strike a perfect harmony. What was once a single blouse is now a collection of over 18 pieces including dresses, coats and lingerie. Tucker has and continues to evolve as organically as it began."

Why didn't I think of this?! Jealous. Tucker by Gaby Basora.

happy new year *reprise

one month into this year so far, and let me tell has been nothing short of INSANE.
that's why i've decided to start my year over on a more relevant date, my birthday. today is day one of my new year, so these are my resolutions:

#1. learn how to use the wacom tablet. i bought that sh** for a reason.
#2. finish the business plan
#3. read more books. draw more. find more creative outlets. ride my bike more. go to the opera in LA. visit the zoo.
#4. save money
#5. motivate myself
(ok #3 was actually more than one resolution, like a turbo resolution.)

on a happier note, a few nice things did happen this year so far. i moved into an apartment. i discovered an awesome brownie recipe. i taught myself some difficult photoshop screen separation techniques.
but anyway, here's to a new year. hope yours is going well, and if not, you can always start over on your birthday too. :)

more jewelry?!

i guess i've been on a bit of a jewelry blogging rampage lately...i blame all the stuff going around the internet about some schmancy lovey dovey holiday coming up called "valentine's day" or something...
nevertheless (and don't call me a sap for posting on these!) i had to do it, these were way too pretty. some may call them wedding or engagement rings (DON'T get any ideas people!), but let's just call them gorgeous and antique and far superior to any boring mass manufactured new tiffany's stuffs.
i just love the fact that they're old and so detailed and one of a kind. there is so much life to them; i don't know how to explain it. they're so interesting to look at! it's fun to imagine who they used to belong to, what they wore back then, little remnants of a forgotten era.
see for yourself:
