Gimme an "R"! Gimme an "A"! Gimme a "N-D-O-M"!

I could totally be Chewbacca's hot sister....or not. HAHAHAHA!

And in other news...Lookie! Lookie what I got!

And just ignore the dirty floor, dirty stove & other dirtiness. Isn't my new pink teapot cute? I had to dump the other one that I accidentally melted to the stove. And the 70's stove & 80's wallpaper are so cute too. (BLECK! I hate 'em. I'm a renter. Not much I can do.)

I was bored last night so I thought I'd snap a few shots of my home. This pic is of a really skinny wall that I decorated with my book art. The book art is coming to my Etsy shop again in April! Oh, & those heads are now gone. Mr. WHiMSy love hates them so they live in my art studio now. And I cropped the picture because there are messes on both sides of this display!

I wasn't trying to focus on the mirror in this picture, but the reflection of the star paper lights I recently purchased. I chose a cream color, a teal blue & a hot pink. I realized after I got them home that it kinda looks like patriotic "red, white & blue". I plan on keeping them up year round as funky decor. They are handmade from India. The mirror is handmade too--embossed from Mexico.

And I'm trying some new photos with props for the shop for when I get my cupcake watercolors listed. I'm twiddling my thumbs waiting for my protective sleeves & mailers to arrive! I LOVE this sidetable! I made it about 3 years ago from a vintage suitcase & some table legs I stained with stripes. I got the suitcase at a garage sale & it belonged to a lady who'd had it as a little girl & fondly remembered her vacation to Hawaii with it. You can still see the "Hawaii" sticker on it. She TOTALLY had trouble giving it up but I promised her it was going to a good home. My Christmas ornaments are tucked away inside. I heart sneaky storage!
