I don't ask for the meaning of the song of a bird or the rising of the sun on a misty morning. There they are, and they are beautiful.

-Pete Hamill

Sunday morning was perfectly misty, I just love how dreamy it makes the world look. Luke and I woke up early and took our coffee to the local wooded park for a stroll.  It was prime weather for my favorite thrifted find as of late, a gorgeous 60's fox fur coat!

vintage millinery flower halo-handmade by me

I just love the sleeves and 70's feel to this dress!

I've been loving natural mineral stone/geode necklaces lately..

Happy Tuesday!

weekend winsome


cosmic love

♪ I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you ♪

Luke and I had a starry date night and snuggled in bed with some music and homemade hot chocolate, we love our star projector! I had to order one after I spotted it on Kate's blog!

♪ Our lockets long have rusted
His picture worn and weathered
Our hair is in the garden
The roses in our toeses
Our heart are in the blossoms
Our eyes are in the branches ♪

It's a gloomy Saturday in January,perfect for some hauntingly beautiful tunes.

lock love.

Michelle Williams is having the best(hair)week ever.

I loved her slightly longer platinum do but this Mia Farrow honey colored pixie just does it for me. She makes me want to attack my already cropped cut with bleach and scissors..can we just swap heads?!

The beaded bodice on this still my heart.

I also love the reason she keeps it short..

 "I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it."

I adore Heath Ledger, the man clearly had great taste.



♪ You really want to hole up
You really want to stay inside and sleep the light away ♪

I've been sick all week..really wana go outside!

I think this old video is so creepy/cool. Saw it on tcm a while ago,I just love the little clips they show in between movies sometimes

Film Friday

Ball of Fire 1941

Oh how I wish we had nightclubs like this still..golden age thinker here.

I adore Barbara Stanwyck and this screwball comedy showcases her quick wit and sharp tongue. She plays Sugarpuss O'Shea, a nightclub performer who catches the mind of naive linguistics professor Bertram Potts(Gary Cooper) while he's researching slang terms. Bertram is living with a group of adorable out of touch older gents as they all do their part to complete the encyclopedia they've been working on. Sugarpuss hides out there while under a mob murder investigation, everyone falls smitten.

"Yes, I love him. I love those hick shirts he wears with the boiled cuffs and the way he always has his vest buttoned wrong. He looks like a giraffe, and I love him. He's the kind of guy who gets drunk on a glass of buttermilk. I love him because he doesn't know how to kiss..the jerk"


I love old fashioned slang and this movie is full of it! I don't know how much of it was really used back then but whatever Sugarpuss slings is believable..Scrim! Scram! Scraw!

Speaking of slang I've noticed myself saying "dag nab" a lot haha my version of dagnabbit I guess. Yes, I'm actually a surly 80 year old man at heart!

   Happy Friday!
