Sometimes People look like dogs

You know you've thought it. Even pretty people can look like dogs and other animals. Just sayin'.

Before and After: Side Table

More than a year ago I bought this little blue guy for $7.00 in the "little Mexico" of Fort Worth. And that could have been mostly anywhere in fort worth. One time we went to a park not thinking about what day it was and it was the craziest sit on horses with sombreros eating snow cones fiesta I have ever seen. There were even tons of police and one of them asked us, "Why are you here? Go home!" 
It was cinco de mayo. Anyway. 

Before:

The after process:
 prime and paint white

filled in holes with wood filler, paint teal


I found martha stewart die-cut paper to use as a stencil.


and here it is... 
for Juliana, one of my sister's very 
sweet friends!

BHLDN Spying

The word is out that BHLDN or Beholden (I really liked my idea of Bridal House London) as it is said, is opening its first brick and mortar store in Houston, Texas. Naturally I sought this out and brought my camera. They move fast so it doesn't even look this empty anymore... AND they made this swan thing and that back of it is made out of chairs! There was a group of ladies sitting a crafty table doing this. I don't have a picture because they could see me taking a picture and thats embarrassing. 


those little black "dots" are actually metal flowers... they would.


Also, just to guess.. they are going to use some pallet decor that 
is so popular right now despite its grunginess. Or maybe its just pallets. 


This store is actually where they had pet adoptions every weekend... 
and I bought Sammy there! Special place to me. They also contacted me a 
while back to sell my cake stands. SO EXCITING. BUT it fell through
Im a little sad but it was really a smarter decision NOT to go with them. 
I feel special about it the thought that they wanted it though.

Past BHLDN is Williams Sonoma and then Anthro. I just
bought plane tickets to Ireland and Italy so Im not going to spend $$
So these are the pictures of the clothes I like in the dressing room. 
There's a sky light in there... they would.


This $118.00 skirt is here.

The shirt comes in blue and mustard also... its here
and belt was $28.00 here.

I came back to get this and it was nowhere to
be found! I can't find it online either. You can
see it right? Its not a ghost shirt that shows up
as a glare in pictures?

It got better with these pants! 


I got this to make a used car salesmen joke
but it turned out to be cute instead.
they would. 
Why do I cut my face out? In consideration for your feelings.
Because I make really bad ugly faces like this. 


you're welcome.
