Desultory Delights: No. 5

Been makin' lots of obnoxious "blank is the new blank" proclamations as of late. 

Here's an entire list are a couple more for good measure. (I got ahead of myself and ran out of juice)

Happy Wednesday, I love you.

R's aunt M is one of my favorite pen pals.
I love learning about his family through her perspective.
This came in the mail today and made me chuckle.

How adorable 
Bring the desert in.

"It's an illusion, Michael."

Wishing R didn't sell his Rickenbacker years back, because now I want the exact same one. I've decided to switch from learning how to play a short scale to full scale-- partly because it's more bad ass, partly because it'll my ass look smaller.

A Sudden Urge

The moon egged me on. The freshly cut grass called my name. I did a cartwheel and simultaneously injured my wrists, strained my inner thigh, and pulled a muscle in my right shoulder. Serves me right.

You can play backgammon in it, 
because your paws are free.

My friend hired me to design her daughter's nursery. 
I thought I'd share a few of the mood boards that I came up with. 

It feels so fucking amazing to do some creative shit again.

All of the furniture are kid sizes (adult prices)! 

Too tired to source, sorry! 
Please email me if you have any questions.

Fred Goldman works in the men's section of the local Nordstrom. It breaks my heart into pieces when I glide down the escalator and see that mustache behind that glass case. It's hard not to stare.

It's official. 
I'm totally sick of this collection.

I feel like a lot of good things could happen in this room.
Like, a lot.

The Trifid Nebula in Stars and Dust // Kirkwood

Some days I feel that the universe is showering me with hugs, kisses, & good fortune. The past few days have been like that. I'm so grateful for everyone/everything:
  • Won a Rodarte for Target dress in the STOP IT RIGHT NOW giveaway for my mom! She was sick witha da shingles and through her pain she managed to shakily hold up a magazine and point to a picture of the dress. She asked me if I could get it for her, which in turn, broke my fucking heart because the magazine was months old and I had to tell her that they weren't for sale anymore. Mumsy is the most selfless person I know-- who never asks for a damn thing, and here she was... depressed, sick, suffering, and asking me for something I couldn't get for her. A few days later, while perusing one of my all time favorite blogs, I see that  Jayne was giving away THE DRESS, in HER SIZE! Too poifect! Thanks, Jayne. I'm so grateful. I plan on surprising her with it tonight ♥
  • Met a slew of interesting new friends at the Kentucky Derby event and somehow managed to win best dressed couple?! It may have been fixed since our hostess was a judge. Either way, I'm super jazzed on the prizes: a massive bottle of Julep Maker's Mark and 2 custom dress shirts. I've totally been wanting a sleek black dress shirt to wear with my skinny ties.
  • Flowers from cute clients
  • Six year anniversary with R coming up on Saturday. So lucky to be able to hang out with my best friend everyday.
  • Speaking of space... another client of mine had her host-pathogen microgravity experiment fly on the Discovery mission STS-131!! She brought me back a custom patch and a NASA coin that was aboard Discovery. My mind is still reeling from the fact that I own shit that's been up in orbit. Nuts.
Okokok, enough mushiness for now. I like to keep tally of good things to remind myself that life is pretty fine when I'm feeling dark.

What are you grateful for today?
