I'm back!

Yes, I have returned. I missed all the sharing we do here, people! haha
Besides that.. I am happy. It seemed pretty imposssible there for a moment but..
Turns out, it totally wasn't, I just tripped out momentarily. Wao! I'll try to avoid that in the future.

So.. I had quit the cigarettes. Then I picked them up again. I wish I had a poll
or something up for seing how many visitors here smoke. I feel a little guilty.. and a little indulgent.
I don't know what it is but cigarettes in the fall/winter along with warm beverages.. spot on.
I am a bad seed, all that, I know, I know. On top of that, I've been eating all the candies at home
and being the laziness instead of making my own foods and being good >.<
I did learn how to make pretty yum smoothies! I'll try to share some recipes with you.
I have yet to master the skill of making one single serving.. it's usually about three or four.
I'll try to post what I'm doing and recipes here if possible. Maybe it'll keep me honest?

Thank You

I just wanted to say thank you to my followers. Yes, all twenty-something of you. (UPDATE: I am a teensy bit more pleased than previous because I have *31* followers now, a few more than last time I was here, I hope to get a chance to talk with you soon and check out your blogs xo) There have been days when I was so down but I felt the urge to get out of bed and come here because some of you have been so kind and helpful that I missed you when I was away. Maybe that sounds weird, but I mean it.  I also can't deny the fact that I am going through some things right now. I feel guilty when I don't come by here, so I at least wanted to say something to let you know that I am still alive, and while I may not be posting as often as I would like or as often as I have been, I am not shutting up shop. I know a lot of blogs talk about how no one really wants to be brought down when they go to their reading list, but I feel unreal to pretend I am cupcake & butterflies giddy all of the time; quite contrary, I suffer from borderline personality disorder and currently from events in my life that.. I haven't quite been able to grasp and cope with. I sometimes feel I am slipping farther and farther from reality. It's almost a feeling of swaying on a tightrope so high in the air, the wire being the present, the left of me being sanity and to the right.. a very questionable and unwell state of mind. My friends, and even strangers, have tried to talk sense into me. To know people are there for me is nice, but it doesn't bring me back to solid ground. I hope to overcome this somehow. I haven't given up hope. Anyway.. enough of my rambling, eh? I hope everyone is doing well, I'll try to get back here soon and see what everyone is up to and make some posts of my own. You are all darling.

(shirt-Liz Clairborne //pants,necklace-F21// bag,shoes-thrifted)

This is what I wore to the flea market last weeekend, it has warmed back up a lot here
Mid 80's, eww! Does anyone LIKE such a hot weather? I know I don't. Comne onnn, fall.
The only thing I purchased was a little gold bee for my wall. It was a good day though..
I was waiting & waiting to cross the road and a guy waited and waited, too, and then he goes
"go on!  but only because you're wearing that hat" haha.. then some girl points me up and down
and goes"I think you look so cute".. Where I live people usually just stare and make me feel odd
so it's really nice to get a compliment. Well, it's really always a nice thing to get a compliment!

I took a few pictures while I was out, too. Do you want to see them? Sure you do ;)


I take photos of things that catch my eye or have a nostalgic feel. I do wish I had a better camera!
I am currently using a DSC-W55, which is fancy talk for "Sony Cyber-shot digital camera".
I've had it for years.. I just don't have the money for an awesome one right now, eep!
Anyway.. I almost left my little gold bee when I went to photograph a real bee and nature haha
Aren't the little antique vintage pouches.. magical? Yes, that's the word, I think.
I wish I had asked the vendor more about them.. I think I was trying to keep from falling in love haha
As for the girl, I can't imagine that ever being anything other than sort of creepehhh, you?
But I like her. She seems not to let no arms get her down, and I like that.

THANK YOU to everyone who answered my font inquiry.
Cosmia of Inflammatory Knit has led me to my solution. font -> arial.
She is a super sweet (and helpful!) lady with an adorable blog, don't hesitate to check her out and say hello!

**update: my font is proving impossible to maintain! I apologize!**

So I am sure you've answered it several times already but now I'm asking you!:
What screams "it's fall!" to you? What's your favorite thing about fall?
Do you have any traditions, or will you be starting any this year?

1. an imaginary wild animal of fierce disposition.

2. a person of uncouth or unconventional habits, attitudes, etc., especially 
one considered a menace, nuisance, or the like.

I can't help but like that word haha.. 
I have so many things to share, I will start posting more regularly.
I miss it when I don't and I always feel like I have something to do. 
The weather has been so nice.. it's cooler on some days than others
and I do wish I had a lover. Something about autumn and winter.
Every year.
but!, more time for.. me. Right? Right.
I hope you all are well -- STAY ENCOURAGED.

P.S. - my font has not been wanting to cooperate.. when looking at it on my own blog, I think the smaller font looks just fine. On the other hand, when I am browsing blogs, I am always pleased to see the larger font because it's much easier to read.

So, Question: What do you think? Do you prefer to see a tiny font or a larger one, like this?

(shirt - dads closet // leggings - Forever 21 // bag & shoes - vintage // hat - Target)

So! I've been absent again. I really feel bad when I don't come by here and at least read and respond to comments. I've been a tiny bit ill, and my dog as well.. we're dealing with
"interdigital furuncles" which is fancy talk for 'cysts' between puppies toes!
glamorous! >.<

I've decided to try an at-home appoach before going to the vet. Up to 8 weeks of antibiotics can get expensive plus that's a lot of medication.. Here's what we are doing instead:


So, you can see in the second photo a bit of the problem I am battling here.
That is all of what I am using to treat it, except I changed to a stickier masking tape.
Basically, it's epsom salt soak in warm water for ten minutes which she is okay with as long as you give the ocassional head scratch! followed by an ointment
and bandages of gauze. I have only done it twice and already seen a big improvement
in both the "cysts" and in her mood altogether, more playful! (except for the little
foot wraps.. she could be happier about that, I think haha)


Anyway, I have still been working on getting things into my shop.
I'll be putting those shoes and the bag in there tomorrow, I think.
They really are lovely, I just have so many things..
BUT! I love sharing my finds, so it's okay.

I hope everyone is well. How is the weather where you are? It's getting crisply autumnal here in the south but who knows if it'll last.. I'll keep the summer clothing out for now, as usual~
