Etsy Vintage: Lemon!

Oh yellow: the color of sunshine, which I miss in the worst way. Today’s picks are some vintage pretties that made me momentarily forget my seasonal affective disorder. XOXO.

Monday Tracks

Just because its Monday tomorrow - and you might need one of the following two songs to get through the day.

If you are looking for immediate gratification and wholesome, eighties fun:

Or perhaps you’re the brooding type that needs some depth to make your world right:

If you see it in the sun, it’s so.

I’m back guys! (Try to contain yourself.)

It feels like forever since I posted on my blog. The last few months have been nuts, but things are starting to wind down a bit. It was nice to spend some time with my family, move out of my apartment, work on my house and sort of clear my head - but the break is over and it is time to get down to business. I will be updating my shop over the next few weeks - hopefully adding some things, changing some things and trying to get back into the daily blog habit.

Something to look forward to - I got a screen printer for Christmas, so you should see some larger prints in shop soon. I’m excited about moving beyond my dear little gocco, but I won’t abandon her. Along those lines, I bought myself this gorgeous print (1897, Louis Rhead.) “If you see it in THE SUN, it’s so,” is a quote from the infamous newspaper (THE SUN) article that inspired, “Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus.” But I like to think of it in the literal sense - if you see it in the sun, it’s so. Lovely.
