Cockroaches, Cupcakes & Cartoons
What a crazy week its been! I'm happy to have a quiet Saturday to myself.
Yesterday while running some errands I ran into Dolly Python, AKA Dallas's treasure chest. You can find all kind of freaky folk art, knick-knacks, jewelry, books, records, and clothes here...did you see the Elle Italia editorial with Erin Wasson? The shots inside Dolly Python are beyond!
I brought home this cockroach necklace--I'm obsessed with the insect jewelry of the Victorian era. This guys a cutie...the detail on the side of the pendant is incredible! Thank you for the necklace, Benjamin & Ari!

Today my little sister threw a surprise party for one of her friends. The table arrangement she set up was very impressive! She made these cupcakes too--sooo pretty.
She and my mom picked out these pretty glasses at TJ Maxx last week-so nice!
They remind me of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is my current all-consuming obsession...I really don't care to admit how many episodes I've seen this week but I'm sure it's a LOT.
The character design, backdrops, and color schemes are so inspiring! Definitely my favorite Craig Mccracken cartoon, though I still love Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, and Samurai Jack.
I guess the baroque-psychedelia of Foster's Home has my eye trained on the more whimsical touches of the mansions from the Gilded era. I got this book at Dolly Python yesterday and love to see l that so many of these suffocatingly extravagant rooms have touches of candy colors like mint green, bubblegum pink, and robin's egg blue.
This amazing image by Flickr user Oldoinyo really captures the mood I'm feeling lately...it's of the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina.
Have a great weekend!
