i am one grumpy girl.
so portlandeers, i hear it snowed and i missed it since i'm in LA (land of eternal sunshine and concrete parkinglots)! bah humbug!
i have never seen the sky snow so it makes me cranky to have missed it.
i suppose it will snow again since it's supposed to be one cold winter, so i should look on the sunny...er, flurry side of things.
besides missing snow (and portland) it done been a rough couple of days here in the southlands, so i decided to treat myself to some nice things as i am in dire need of them:
firstly, new perfume by l'occitane because my old one ran out. the packaging just gets more adorable, it has a little parade of elephants and giraffes around the bottle! also i bought an old, framed, TAXIDERMED BAT HEAD (not pictured, but by far my favorite purchase!!!), mod podge, and other lovely art supplies (the bulk of my spending always goes to art supply stores). i thrifted the sweater, records and amazing wwII book. there are some absolutely incredible pictures in that thing. also starring in this picture are my old standbys: my copy of walden courtesy of sir graham, ye olde secret strawberry, trusty red mittens, chris' map and my compass.
i would feel guilty about all my purchases because i never EVER splurge like this, but what the hell. i just got paid and have more commissions ready to ship off. also i didn't even go over $65 on everything combined, so hooray for retail therapy!
in other news, it's actually really raining here which is a rarity indeed, and i woke up sick with an increasingly stinging throat so i think i am going to watch meteorshowers and ghost videos on youtube (favorite indoor pastime), paint and drink tea.
look at those stars! my goodness we live in a beautiful world.
