it was worth it


the last few days have been full of grunt work, organizing and paring down. so of course blogging is taking it’s back of the bus status. seems like whenever i get here someone knocks, calls or (worst) looks over my shoulder! i’m alone now and furiously writing for this brief shining moment when i can be here!

anyway in the midst of my grunting, i found a missing envelope with these antique perfume labels i got in paris a few years ago (and thought they were gone forever). finding them changed my day. the work!



on another note, my friend carol,

(have you seen this)?


turned me on to her friend Gay, at i dreamed i saw, a beautiful site filled with lovelies from other sites. great resource! god the internet is filled with beauty. go get lost if you have some time…


one final note: made by girl just stopped by and is printing eco friendly cards. so sweet too!


we’re exchanging links. if you’d like to do the same let me know! if we’re friends and i don’t have your link up please tell me!



i was just surfing ebay (i confess i have developed an obsession for something, tell ya later). but anyway, for those of you who sell on it, check out collectibles and home decor
it’s a list of what’ hot, the top searches in the world. cheat sheet to the world’s yard sale!

    I almost forgot. The perfume labels are beautiful. My mum used to collect such things. At the time I thought it was useless clutter. It seems you must get to near the 40s to begin appreciating things!
