Another one!

lil cuckoo
Also from Doug & Kathryn ♥
Well, not technically a cuckoo, I suppose... nothing pops out. But the water wheel on the side turns!

New glasses! And haircut! And pincurls!

I gots me some new glasses.
New glasses! And haircut! And pincurls!
I was inspired by the glasses on ladies like Anja and Piksi... I tried one like a hundred vintage frames, but they just didn't fit my face right. But we wandered into a store that had a great selection of vintage-inspired frames, and there they were! Yaaaaaaaay!
Also, haircut. I was putting my longish hair up in braids on top of my head for a couple months straight, so it was time to chop. Also, pincurls. I don't think I did them right- they didn't look any different than curler curls, but I suppose it saves time in the morning!

Welcome to the dollhouse.

It's getting there... The bedroom & kitchen are pretty much done:
I papered the walls & floors (I made the house from a kit) and added Sylvanian Families furniture and Rement accessories. The Petite Blythes look pretty happy with it, I think. I'm still on the hunt for some living room furniture... and there's a craft room being worked on, too!

Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

I asked Kathryn & Doug to keep an eye out for me on their frequent antique outings for a cuckoo clock, but I didn't have high hopes- they're so expensive on the 'bay!
But! Look!

Big Cuckoo
A VERY reasonably priced german cuckoo clock! It's so beautiful, people. It works, supposedly, but I don't know how to string the chains through the bottom correctly (I have the pinecone weights, too)... Does anyone know how to do it?
So, I had to have one for the dollhouse, too, of course:
Tiny Cuckoo
More dollhouse pics tomorrow...

Chris's Bday

Some of Chris's Bday gifts:
Gangs of SF Shirt
Gangs of San Francisco shirt I picked up at Renegade SF... It took me forever to pick one out- every shirt they make is AWESOME. They are all based on historical San Francisco Bay areas and groups.
Owly Shadow Puppets Valentine
Owly Shadow Puppets Valentine
Snarky Valentines from Owly Shadow Puppets (same peeps I got the Yeti from)! It's a good thing my man has the same sense of humor as me.

Collodian Shoot

Doug & Kathryn have been taking a lot of collodions lately... they had me model for some:
This one's my favorite:
They gave these three to Chris for his birthday. I love playing dress-up, so don't be surprised if there are more to come!
