Happy Summer. Kiss!

Holiday spirit

I stumbled across this 1930’s cast iron Christmas tree stand on Etsy yesterday and was suddenly, and inadvertently, giddy with holiday spirit. I thought it was too early, but it also just dawned on me that Thanksgiving is next week! There was just something really special about getting this guy that made me happy. Yes, there were flashes of scenes from A Christmas Story, but more than that I like the idea of having something that has been a part of many past holidays.

So in case you’re tired of your hard-to-assemble aluminum tree stand, take a look to see if there are any others listed that would suit you.

Also, be sure to stop by one of my favorite Etsy shops and see more vintag goodies from Shaving Kit Supplies.

I’m off for some fun in the sun with my guy. (Going to meet the fam!) And I am so looking forward to swapping my phone and laptop for some vintage shopping and family time at the beach. Pardon my absence for a few days while I unplug and chill out. I’ll be back next week. Cheerio!

“I’mmm 5o!”

The Space Needle turned 50 on Saturday and in celebration he’s going back to the original Galaxy Gold color that was first used for the World’s Fair in 1962. Isn’t this picture from Facebook is so great. Could you get out there and help paint?

In celebration of Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday the folks at Google created this little feature. Absolutely love this; I know what I’ll be listening to after work tonight.

1 of 7 billion

At the end of this year there will meet and then exceed 7 billion people living on our planet. This three-minute, no nonsense typography video from National Geographic kick starts a seven part, year-long series on global population.

In this time of resolutions and crash diet beginnings it seems we often forget to think about the world outside of ourselves. If you take a second to think about it, I mean really think about it, the New Year is a very selfish time. Just on the heels of time when we’re all guilty of overindulging, it seems the meaning of resolutions has gone right out the window with the true holiday spirit. As much of a humbug as that makes me sound I really hope to use this time to think about my place in this world as 1 out of 7 billion and think about the message of balance.

Happy Friday!

A paper craft castle on the ocean

It’s been a mad dash to get into the holiday spirit since I realized just a few days ago that Christmas is next week. It’s crazy how life can get in the way of life…whatever that means.

Hope you all have a lovely and festive weekend ahead of you. Eat some homemade Christmas cookies for me. I’ll have to wait until later next week to indulge.
