Elephants on Parade

i made this caftan dress thingie this weekend and I am really proud of it. I stenciled elephants along the border and they are so cute. However, my face in this photo looked fug, so I photoshopped Ashlee Simpson's onto mine. Now the photo looks like a becky-ashley hybrib; I'm sure Scott has a boner

Bling Bling my jewelry box is calling

I wanted to show you my new jewelry. I just bought this Pade Vavra shark tooth necklace that I've been wanting for a while. And then I found my leopard ring in the couch yesterday. Its vintage, but they have an even better leopard ring at Old Navy. I know these photos don't do any justice, but I couldn't find the cord to my camera or a picture on the ON website. So here is a picture of me taken on photobooth inspired by kimora lee.

Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons

I saw this "Claws for Alarm" neck piece at the blog.mode: addressing fashion exhibit at the Met a few months back. It was so much cooler in real life than in this picture. But anyway, it reminded me how fascinated I am with momento-mori type things especially of the Victorian era when they made jewelry from hair of the deceased.

Today i stumbled across the website for Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons. They have some really beautiful hand crafted momento-mori inspired jewelry. I especially love all the scrimshaw vintage piano key necklaces.

take note

one thing i love are notebooks. They're something I buy tons of whenever I travel because they are so cheap and cute and fit right in my purse. I recently bought this alice in wonderland, nancy drew, and wizard of oz notebooks while at strawberry jam in new hope. But I also wanted to mention my laughing elephant sketchbooks which are replicas of old french notebooks. And, I picked up some spiral bound sketchbooks whilst in LA last year; they are remade from old library books (later, i saw the same concept at several different craft fairs). My all time favorite notebooks are this Japanese kind.....I couldn't find a pic of them on the web, and was too lazy to scan a pic in.
