yesterday was insanely gorgeous, so my sister and i took a trip to the gardens, which is seriously like a 5 minute drive (we’re so lucky) but we hardly go, shame on us!

amy shawl bombed this lady statue, i think it looks very natural, don’t you?

my intention was to sew while we were there but it didn’t happen, i was so organized and everything!

we did a bit of walking around, i just love how mysterious these gates look.

we went to the antique mall since it’s around the corner from the gardens. it was a great day to look at treasures.

i’m smitten with vintage glass sets like this.

how interesting and unfortunately you can spot me in the mirror, oops.

i want a vintage radio so bad! look at how beautiful these are

this antique mall is a maze and takes a lot of patience to go through, but it’s well worth the time.

these are the amazing pieces that came home with me. i can’t wait to wear them tonight for the new year’s eve show i’m going to!

i will hopefully be posting some big news on sunday regarding the shop. i’ve been working very long hours on my vacation to make sure my goal for Jan. 1st for Tacocat Productions kicks off with a bang and many new products!

see you soon, and happiest of new years!!

here it is, already about to be december and i’m trying to update about october! life is moving by soooo fast. so here are some photos from the last month and a half!

went to colorado to see my parents on october 14th. it was so much fun and the perfect time to go! so beautiful!!!

robot dancing time on the mountain!

with my little brother, matthew, on the coolest rock over looking the valley!

next comes pumpkin carving at my friend’s place! lots of guts a flying that night.

it’s really hard to be graceful in a skirt while working with a pumpkin, but somehow i pulled it off without flashing anyone, go me!

i LOVE jena’s smile in this photo!

this was the first year EVER that amy and i have dressed up for halloween together. we were siamese twins just ripped apart, it was a blast!

while i was at the CSS show, i dressed up as a kitty bandit. this was the only reasonably okay photo i took of my costume though.

soooo, that was october. november started with shows (which you have seen!) and probably one of the best thrifting trips of my life! my guy and i went to the denton mini mall and had a great time treasure hunting. it was made even more fun when i spotted this storm trooper’s helmet.

it was apparently my lucky day for finding great vintage luggage. look at what i scored!

i love round suitcases, so i was estatic when i found two!

so that’s enough for this post, more photos of this wonderful month coming soon!
