Dream It. Make It. Wear it. WORK IT!

I'm nobody without that salad bowl hat. Simply, nobody.

For the Love of Marilyn

I can't say for sure how this will be as a film but I do believe it's going to be some lovely eye candy to lose ourselves in for a while:

First up:

Well, someone loves cats!

When I've been told that I'm going to be a "crazy old cat lady" one day (and I've heard it often), I've always imagined myself as reeking of cat urine and all of my friends, neighbors and relatives trying to find a tactful way to tell me. Or shuffling around in the grocery store covered in cat hair, trying to get an enormous bag of dry cat food into my cart without falling over. Okay, that last one happens now but still...

If I can be a "crazy old cat lady" like this lady, I'm all in! And seriously, I'm with her in that I can't get enough of making things.

And speaking of making things, do you like making things? My gal pals over at No Pattern Required are having a contest to win a whole slew of fantastic retro inspired Christmas cards. Go on over and if you get a hankering to, make something awesome and enter it in their contest! They're looking for your creations made with thrifted or reused items that are vintage or have a vintage feel. This one has you buckaroos all over it! Three super cool prizes will be awarded and the deadline is November 20th.

Go here for the details, y'all: No Pattern Required

Tell them Eartha said hey and ho! ho! ho! and stuff.

Until next time (remember hot glue burns only build character),
x's and o's,

Hey Mister DJ! (and Swoop! There it is!)

If you're a cat owner, you're probably familiar with the mighty Turbo Scratcher. Here's Pip with hers as a kitten:

My cats go apes over theirs. They only spin the ball when they are tweaked out of their minds on the nip but they love that middle scratching part 24/7. As with anything along that vein, the company gets your pet hooked and then you have to pay a ridiculous amount for the cardboard refills. Every time that we buy some, I moan, "That much?? They're made out of cardboard!" But we pet parents know that if we stop buying those scritchety-scratch refills, our couches will pay the ugly price.

I keep trying to fight it but...enter the cutest thing ever:

by Perpetual Kid

$34.99 for cardboard - ouch! But let me tell you...if I were to accidentally find $34.99 on the sidewalk, my kitties would be mix-mastering it up!

And from cats to birds, I just have to share this amazing video of starlings:

Until next time,
