now, i was on the hunt for vintage chain, a prize that is rapidly becoming difficult to find. i won't tell all my secrets just yet, but in the next few weeks, dinosaur toes will be on the opposite coast in an awesome boutique, so i was in desperate need of old chains for some special bullet and stone necklaces. unfortunately, i only found two chains instead of ten, but look at these treasures i'm keeping for myself...
that little coral/seahorse/shell combo is currently a brooch, but i plan to remove the back and attach it to a headband so i can try and tame some of my mane. next, i don't particularly have a special love for reindeer, but i do think they're cute, and i have a
it was actually kind of funny the way my treasure hunting worked out yesterday. right after i got to the store, my auntie amy called and said she was on her way because she had something she wanted to give me. she told me that she could spend all day in that store, but she usually only goes if she has a friend to ride with her. i told her that the last few times i've been, i've gone with micaela, but her work schedule keeps her busy on the weekends, so we haven't been able to get together lately. so i hung up, walked around the corner, and guess who i saw? MICAELA! fancy seeing the person you just talked about! so we got in our thrifting and chatting on our impromptu date!
two more random things: one, i've never been a makeup person, and sometimes i feel like a boy. don't get me wrong, i don't want to have my face painted on, but i'd like to do a little more with eyeshadow, or even blush if i'm feeling adventurous. what type of makeup, or tips and tricks would you recommend? and i must tell you, i CANNOT wear mascara because my eyelashes are about 8 miles long (and it's annoying) and i've always been particularly turned off by lipstick. anything else is fair game!
random thing number two: i saw anna's tweet about a sign reading, "hay thief, any info please call" and that reminded me of a sign chris and i saw. we were coming through west virginia on our way home from one of chris' motocross races, and outside a beauty salon in a creepy country town that i'm sure inspired the movie "deliverance" we saw a sign that read, "bobby ray is a liar, a cheat and a thief." all i can say is, don't piss off redneck women or they'll tell the world in their own backwoods way!
okay, that is all. how has your week/weekend been?
