"The Girls" by Heather Williams

"The Girls" is a series of paintings created by Ontario-based artist and fellow Etsian, Heather Williams. I love the colors used in her work. The beautiful subjects have no trouble competing with the often solid-colored background. Some of them also remind me of a few of my girlfriends. Each woman seems to possess a style and personality all her own.

These would fit perfectly on the walls of a little brick and mortar clothing boutique!

Find the work of Heather Williams in her Etsy shop here, and discover more about the artist via her blog here.

Novelty Print of the Day -- vintage 60's SEURAT-INSPIRED Scenic Pointillism Top

Just came upon another charming little vintage piece inspired by an artist of the past. In this case it's Georges Seurat, and this scenic top below is very obviously inspired by his pointillism painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. "

What is this lady by the lake dreaming about?
I love the color combination. Pretty, pretty.

Ready For Rain

Weather in the mitten, at least in my neck of the woods, has been odd lately.
I love the warmth and humidity, but every day it looks like the sky is on the verge of a downpour.
This is my rain-ready outfit. :)
I like the bright colors to take away the blues of the gray day.

This raincoat was thrifted years ago and is full of hearts in all different colors. My best guy friend told me he thinks I look TOO bright. Bah!
I grew up watching Punky Brewster, going rollerskating, and playing with My Little Ponies. I think hearts and stars and unicorns and rainbows are always just going to be a little part of my fashion sense.

Sometimes I just really like clothes that bring me back to my girlhood memories.

Maybe I just never ever want to really grow up? Hmmmm. . . ;)

Rainbow Hearts Raincoat - thrifted
Yellow Dress - Gift from my Aunt from her 1970's wardrobe, score!
Pink Belt - thrifted
Pink Wellies - thrifted
Rain Hat- thrifted

Soyrizo, soy delicious!

I rarely share food posts, but had to with today's breakfast because I'm so happy to have found this perfect & yummy Soyrizo from Trader Joe's recently. I'm not a vegetarian (or vegan) by any means, but I've never enjoyed eating sausage, and when I was a little girl my grandma and mom would make these incredibly delicious breakfast burritos with potatoes and chorizo (mexican sausage). Though I always loved the taste, I didn't like the idea that it was sausage.

This stuff tastes the exact same, there's no difference at all to me!

From this:

To this: (Just added melted cheese, tomatoes and freshly ground pepper)

Don't you love finding something your heart's been longing for?
The idea to make soy taste like Chorizo is brilliant!
It's all in the spices. Thank you, Trader Joe's. ♥
I wonder what Grandma would think. . . ;)

Hello, You're My Very Special One. . .

This is "After Hours" by Velvet Underground.
The video below is not the original, but does feature the girl with the black tights. . . Miss Edie Sedgwick, very fitting for the lyrics.

Beautiful and bittersweet.
