My weekend, so far.

My dad is in town and I am ALSO dog sitting. Last night we saw an opera (Norma) and the lead was incredible. We went to a bunch of antique stores and thrift stores yesterday, and overall it was a good day.

Today I ran 5 miles. I had grand plans to wake up early and run many more, but the bed was too comfy and the dog too cute. The weather was just so perfect though. I had first considered going to a museum today with my dad, but I didn’t want to waste the nice weather. So we walked to brunch and then explored Andersonville a little. I found a hat I probably definitely should’ve bought.

My dad has been having knee problems. Combined with some heart problems in the past couple years, it seems he may have gotten the hint he needs to take weight loss seriously. He’s lost a bit in the past 10 days, but I’m hoping he keeps it up for longer. His track record for healthy eating isn’t great.

Tonight we’re gonna check out a brewery, though we’ve yet to know which one! For now we rest.

Happy Sunday!

Hi there, sending lots of love for this blog♡what would be the nordics' idea of a day when they're being spoiled by their s/o?hope it's not too vague and thank youu

Finland: Lots of goodies baked for him by his s/o and probably like vodka or cider to go with them. He’d also like to go camping and stargazing and have a nice long chat by the campfire. A trip to a sauna and the day is complete!

Denmark: He would like to go on a little adventure with his s/o maybe something like hunting down a book or a record in antique stores. After that he’d just want to go home and have an intimate dinner by candlelight and then a nice bubble bath.

Iceland: Its definitely going to involve licorice. He’d want to take his s/o to the geothermal hot springs and take a walk on the beach. When they get home at night he would want something really yummy for dessert and then go straight to bed for cuddles.

Norway: He’d take his s/o through the forest for a walk and they’d probably play in the snow. When they get too cold, they’ll head to his cabin the mountains and sit in front of the fire drinking coffee and eating butter cookies. He’d probably love for his s/o to read to him from a book and just fall asleep like that.

Sweden: He wants to take a drive out in the country then go to a spa and get a massage and some relaxation time with his s/o. After that, they’ll go to a cozy little restaurant for dinner and then head home for some ahem “alone time”

mirrors

I have made a habit of seeking out mirrors –
In yard sales, unpriced, laid on the lawn.
In puddles reflecting the blue sky.
In antique stores, with men to sell them,
and stories that drive up their value.

I have looked into the eyes of friends,
the eyes of lovers, too kind to tell the truth,
in search of… well, in search.

I have sat by still lakes, studied my face
in clean water, watched myself scatter
from the falling of a leaf.

I have traced the scars on the moon,
bathed until bodiless in its borrowed light,
but I have never seen myself so clearly
as the moment I close my eyes.

fears: Getting lost or being lost.  Inadequacy.  Rejection.  The usual.
personality traits: INFJ– INFJs indeed share a unique combination of traits: though soft-spoken, they have very strong opinions and will fight tirelessly for an idea they believe in. They are decisive and strong-willed, but will rarely use that energy for personal gain – INFJs will act with creativity, imagination, conviction and sensitivity not to create advantage, but to create balance. Egalitarianism and karma are very attractive ideas to INFJs, and they tend to believe that nothing would help the world so much as using love and compassion to soften the hearts of tyrants. <–Basically, me.

Get crafty, shop sales and stretch your dollars for maximum impact. You can stay on budget and spoil your little too! xoxo ;)

Places to Shop:

  ☆ 20 Inexpensive Big/Little Craft Projects: ☆

  1. Cookies or S’mores in a Jar: Purchase a cheap mason jar, fill with cookie mix/s’mores ingredients and toppings, decorate the jar with a ribbon and cute tag.
  2. Create a Tray Plaque: Buy an inexpensive tray at the Dollar Store, spray paint in a bright color, embellish with flowers/symbols/words and add a wide ribbon for hanging. The tray becomes a cute door or room plaque. 
  3. Hugs & Kisses Box: Gift wrap or decoupage a gift box, add a bow and a note explaining that inside the box is a year’s worth of loving thoughts and affirmations from you to your little. Place 365 neatly printed slips of paper with positive messages inside in the box. Your little can take an inspirational note from the box each day.
  4. Embellish a Hand Mirror: Buy a (larger size) inexpensive hand mirror at the discount store and hot glue flowers, gems, pearls, stick-on letters and/or sorority symbols onto the back of the mirror. 
  5. Decoupage a Ribbon Clock: For a few dollars on eBay or the craft store, buy a set of clock movement parts, purchase a wood disc and have a hole cut in the middle for your clock mechanism, decorate with strips of ribbon or fabric, add buttons, pearls, or gems for the hours. A clock can easily be themed to your sorority through colors and patterns. 
  6. Decoupage a Rock Paperweight: Buy a smooth 5″x 5″ river rock, tear one sheet of high quality scrapbooking paper into pieces and decoupage them onto the rock. Add a piece of felt to the back and one inspirational word to the front with small stick on letters. 
  7. Candy Flower Pot: Paint an inexpensive clay pot with a sorority design, paint craft sticks green to look like stems, glue pieces of candy onto the sticks, and place them into a piece of florist foam you have wedged in the bottom of the pot. Add tissue paper or shreds around the base. Add a few craft store flowers for more fullness. 
  8. Framed Chalkboard: Purchase a medium sized chalkboard or paint a piece of wood with chalkboard paint. Visit your local antique shops and thrift stores to find a cool frame to paint. Place the chalkboard inside the frame and add a wide ribbon for hanging. You can also purchase a frame at the craft store and paint it instead. 
  9. Cute Clipboard: Buy a sturdy yet inexpensive clipboard at the office supply store. Paint or decoupage the front and back and embellish the clip with pearls or rhinestones. Add a lush bow for accent. 
  10. Fabric Message Board: Buy a large piece of Styrofoam, a larger piece of discount fabric and strips of ribbon. Glue the fabric to the Styrofoam and then glue the ribbon ends onto the back, creating a criss-cross pattern on the front. 
  11. Sorority Coasters: Paint or decoupage a set of 4″ tiles from Home Depot. Use fabric, sister photos, magazine pictures, napkins or scrapbook paper as your decoration. Seal with spray on sealer and glue a small piece of felt to the back of each tile. 
  12. Paint a Wine or Champagne Bottle: Paint daisies, roses, or your sorority flowers on a bottle of your choice. Tie the bottle neck with a beautiful ribbon.
  13. Set of Magnets: Find supplies at the craft store for making sorority themed magnets out of bottle caps or clear “buttons.” Use sister photos and printed images for your designs.
  14. Painted Plant Holder: Paint a large tin can in sassy stripes and add a blooming plant from a discount nursery. 
  15. Dry Erase Board: Buy an inexpensive picture frame with glass, paint the glass with 2-coats of acrylic paint and place it in the frame with the painted side facing towards the back. Give with a set of dry erase pens to write on the “front” of the glass and then wipe away. Hot glue a pretty bow to the top front. Board can be hung or placed on a stand. 
  16. Metallic Mug Magic: Head to the Dollar Store or Wal-Mart for a plain ceramic mug, decorate with metallic Sharpies, then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes letting your mug pre-heat and cool down inside the oven. 
  17. Confetti Glasses: Find inexpensive wine glasses or tumblers at the Dollar Store or glassware outlet. Using a gold leaf pen paint irregular shapes that look like confetti scattered down the sides of the glass. Add your greek letters and/or your little’s monogram as well. 
  18. Sugar Scrub: Make your own scented sugar scrub with sugar, almond oil, scented essential oil and food coloring. Give it to your little in a cute bottle or jar. Decorate the bottle with a printed label and pretty fabric on the lid. Find a complete sugar scrub recipe online.
  19. Glitter Bottle Necklace: Find all the supplies you need for making your own jewelry at the craft store. Purchase a chain, mini bottle and glitter to put inside. Attach the bottle to your chain and you have a charming fairy-dust necklace. Symbol earrings are also easy to make with supplies from the craft store. 
  20. Mod Bookends: Shop the quirky second hand stores in your area for two unique heavy objects to paint. Look for animals, solid wood figures, or architectural accents and then paint them in a high gloss bright mod color. Sorority mascots and symbol bookends would also be cool.

SO! It’s taking us a while but me and @buginette are in the works on buginette’s Reverse AU fanfiction!

To get things started though, here’s the link to a preview: Reverse Umbrella Scene AU! Written by me, akas-ladybug based around buginette’s edit here! But worry not! Buginette is on the writing works too (Her MariChat scene RUINS ME!!!)

Summary: Life in Paris is a bit different than what one would expect…
In this world, Marinette Dupain-Cheng’s parents own a huge bakery company (think like Betty Crocker) and she’s their poster child for the bakery’s advertisements. The picture perfect model daughter for the Dupain-Cheng empire.
While for Adrien Agreste, his mother sells clothing and items in an antique store the Agreste’s own. But Adrien wants to do his own thing and become a fashion designer instead of selling other company logos.
Despite these circumstances, their love breaches through into this AU and Chat Noir / Adrien falls further in love with his Ladybug / Marinette under a cloudy, rainy day under the shelter of an umbrella.

title and summary are still in the works
UPDATE: BUGI MADE AN EVEN BETTER EDIT. REVEL IN ITS GLORY!!!

Whoever said that absence makes the heart grow fonder seriously downplayed how painful of a process it was. It was a dull pain, too. The kind that, even when you think you’re happy, is always in the background waiting to tear you down.

Distance was the pain that kept you up at night, and drove you to do stupid things in order to find some semblance of peace.

Like sitting outside an antique store in the early hours of the morning.

Went driving again today. The anxiety that usually paralyzed me instead filled my head with strange excitement - as the sun sank behind the trees, the sky turned a tawny yellow, and I was struck with a sudden, gleeful energy that I could barely contain. I pulled over at an antique ice cream store, then ran out into the grass and cackled - spinning, dancing, leaping - and rolled down a hill. “I love autumn!” I said. “The sky is full of the anticipation of death!” I stopped. “I have no idea what the hell that means,” I said.

I told my mother that I felt high. Too high to drive - we had to watch the sunset. I continued buzzing. I told her about used bookstore clerks being a projection upon our reality from a distant Other, only revealing shy secrets after you correctly answer their trivia questions, which no doubt are proxies for far more mysterious tests. I threw some grass into the air and crushed the bottom of my ice cream cone in my palm. “I’m so glad I get to experience the world,” I said.

My mother just laughed patiently.

Pictured above is a laptop retrieved from the Susquehanna River, which was found to belong to district attorney Ray Gricar who had disappeared almost 4 months previously. The laptop was too damaged for any files to be recovered. On April 15th 2005, Gricar had made a phone call to his girlfriend, telling her he was driving out into the countryside but would be back soon. His car was later discovered by the police outside an antiques store and he was never heard from again. Strangely enough, a search of the browsing history on Gricar’s home computer showed that somebody had looked up “how to wreck a hard drive” and “water damage to a notebook computer,” implying that he may have dumped it himself and fled. However, to this day, the disappearance of Ray Gricar remains unresolved.

SIGNS AS PLACES TO FIGHT
  • Aries: A dog park with dogs trying to get in on the action
  • Taurus: Your garage with your mom watching in disapproval/approval
  • Gemini: Jersey. Everything's legal in Jersey.
  • Cancer: Gardens. If you get beat up you'll still look pretty. Bloody flowers.
  • Leo: In a Denny's parking lot with the guy who runs their social media taking bets with denny's food. Fight him too.
  • Virgo: In a gas station, stretch it to the convenience store if needed.
  • Libra: The middle of the woods, one on one, nobody watches.
  • Scorpio: In the middle of a group of people in the schoolyard. The videos will be up later, and it will look awesome.
  • Sagittarius: In a dollar tree that's having a sale
  • Capricorn: A classy antique store. Only if it's classy
  • Aquarius: On top of a vehicle going 100mph. Know the guy driving. Duck at bridges
  • Pisces: Under a bridge by the river to drown your opponents

I’m back from Canada! It was a good trip. The drive home was a little scary with all the security and checkpoints but we got home safe.

I didn’t take any photos during the trip (just selfies. lots of those.) so I don’t have much to share. It was mostly time spent in the car, or with family. However we did stop at a antique bookshop and I got some vintage sewing books and a few other books for costume reference!

Some of them were printed in the 50s so i’m not sure how accurate the historical information is, but I must admit I purchased them more for the pictures than anything else. “The Art of Sewing” book series is from the 70s, but I doubt embroidery techniques have changed too much in the last forty years!

I love old  hardcover books. If they are missing a dustcover that just makes me like them more. So this store was pretty much heaven.

30 Days of Vulture Culture - Day 6: Where’s your favourite place to find new things?

My own place and out junking!

Lived here almost eleven years now and I’ve found a ton of awesome dead things around this gorgeous creek that runs through the back of my property. It winds through many acres of farmland and floods frequently so there’s always all kinds of cool treasures washing up. I’ve found skulls, bones, and teeth from cows, horses, pigs, dogs, coyotes, deer, and more down there. Loads of rad fossils too!

I’m always out hunting for goodies at antique stores, junk stores, and flea markets too. As “weird stuff” continues to grow more and more popular the prices continue to get higher but you can still find some great deals if you hunt long enough and keep your eyes peeled. And don’t mind doing a little haggling, haha.

My parents are in an antique store in California somewhere and my dad called me because they had an entire wall of old Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books and they want a list of the ones I still need. I had to explain that I already own all of them, now I’m just looking for nice first editions and my dad sounded so disappointed that he couldn’t buy me any books.

And then he just called back because he went and told my mom and the store owner to put the books back because I only wanted first eidtions (they were looking at all the yellow and blue spine ones) and the store owner was like “Oh, well I have some of those too.”

So my dad, my ex-military, no-nonsense, zero-tolerance-for-bullshit father is sitting in an antique shop on a Sunday afternoon squinting through his reading glasses as he reads me the titles and publication dates of children’s books and asking me Very Serious Questions about how to tell if it’s a first edition and getting all worked up because one of them has a tear in the binding.
