'til sunbeams find you

Daydream by Wallace Collection on Grooveshark

I love the weather we've been having the past few days, 70's and sunny! A welcome break from the summertime heat, if I can wear tights and sleeves I'm a happy girl.  These were taken at what we like to call picnic park. There are a few parks in the area that we love for certain reasons and this is our favorite, it's close enough to ride our bikes to and has the perfect ratio of clearing/trees. I'm horrible at directions and street names thus the easy alliteration. I dubbed this area  woodchuck way,  there are usually no less than three of the chubby little roly polys trumbleing* around!

* I have a number of funny words in my vocabulary that have been inherited/made up. I say them a lot but sometimes I catch myself typing them and think, that an actual word? haha

 via dear winsome dictionary
verb- to move around clumsily with no rhyme or reason
example- i hear you trumbleing around down there, what are you looking for?
see also: trumble-hound(copper!)

using my "heavy metal" headpiece sample from a few seasons ago as my holga strap

fools gold

            vintage manatee necklace          
one of his little
flippers is missing..makes me love him even

this medallion is metal and surprisingly heavy

dress(altered f21)-cut the sleeves off to make it fresh
sheer blouse-vintage
velvet bow hat and bag-vintage
everything else-vintage/handmade by me

one of my favorite bracelets, I love how the glass stones are dark but warm up in the sun..reminds me of my hair color!

I have a few reoccurring dreams in which I can't get to where I need to be or I'm unprepared, the most frustrating ones put me back in high school sans schedule with no idea how to get to my class. Or with only a skirt to wear and unshaven legs, or no makeup! I deal with pretty strict deadlines on a daily basis so it's probably just the stress of getting to everything on my plate. Sometimes I feel like a freshman to adulthood, even though I'm in my mid twenties! 

I had the craziest dream last night were I was frantically trying to make it to a flight to Australia that left at 12:25 am and no matter what I couldn't find my way through the airport in time and missed the only flight. Somehow I managed to buy my way(for 40 dollars!) onto a private run down plane that was taking a small group to the outback. I have no idea why I was going anyway but in the dream I tell the passengers that I wasn't even upset about losing out on the super expensive tickets.."it was the koalas, it's always the koalas" haha! If I had a spirit animal it would be a koala, or an otter..

Happy Friday!
