I approve of lightning bolts on jewelry whenever possible.

and that goes for llamas, too...big time.

At the Zoo

My other newly reignited obsession of late is Oaxacan wood carved animals. I was walking through Noe Valley the other day when a huge window full of 'em stopped me dead in my tracks!

I had never seen a porcupine one before. LOVE!

Also loving Mr. Armadillo...

And Mr. Crab...

Someday I intend to have a tasteful yet extensive collection of these in my home, although I am also somewhat fearful I am already slipping slowly toward a house entirely chock full o' Mexican crafts and little else (besides letterpress cards & records)! Oh, gals and their obsessions...

Indian Summer

Being a self-professed lover of paper products, I have to share with y'all my favorite letterpress cards ever. They are made on Swan's Island in Maine by Saturn Press. You can order many different cards they make here. The ones above are but a small assortment of their amazingness.

And yes, I already ordered my Christmas cards from them! (Dork!)

(p.s. -- sorry the pic got cut off in such an awkward way.)

(and p.p.s. -- youthful Calvin Johnson = dreamy!)

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

Omfg. If this could somehow magically fit me, I would add a glorious thick ribbon round the waist, do a Stevie Nicks twirl, and wear it for my wedding in a heartbeat!

This one works too! I guess Victorian people were tiny though...

All these 32" busts ruin these dresses of my dreams!
