french horns

Current obsession: Beirut.

Horns, ukuleles, crashing cymbals, and a deliciously old sound. Also, their frontman makes me swoon.

My favorite song at the moment.

I'm in love.

Last Sunday, we invited Andrea over to craft and decorate cookies. It was so much fun. She's lovely.

And I found a cute photo of sunburnt Ina back when she was eight, I think.
And then I made some barrettes.
This is what my room looks like.

My mom makes the best things ever. These were to die for. And I'm not just saying that cause she's my mother. Find me dessert that tastes better than hers and I'll concede. Double dare ya.

They're building an overpass outside. This is the view from our front door. No lie.

twisted classics

I've been window shopping over at Free People and I love their new collection.
The model in this banner is so crazy gorgeous, and that board! I want it.

I can't afford anything, but hey, a girl can dream, right? These are some of my favorites.

I especially love that last pair of pants.


Check them out here.

snow white's stitching up the circuitboards

Look! Look what I made! Entirely from scratch! I've never sewn anything with a zipper before, and I'm sure I went about it in the worst way, but still! A little purse!

The zipper I am proud of.
And lining! Oh yes. I was thorough.

I am rather disgustingly proud of myself. I've never made anything like this before.

I might add a little strap, so it becomes a wristlet.

Hooray, hooray, hooray!

The next ones will be so much better. For now I shall bask in the glow of my achievement.

oh happy day

I had an entire truckload of posts lined up, but this one has to go first.


Here she is with Ina:

And we are posing with a cupcake:

We were laughing too hard to look like we were "casually talking".


Too cute, I tell you.

Pen pals are the best.

So is Jenae.


(I must remember to never smile like this ever again)

We watched the game:

On a teensy tiny little rooftop court:


There was a lot of long overdue hugging.

Becca Lafferty, we love you so.

(why do the best people live so far away) (i ask you)

please just forget me

Sitcky rice + shaved coconut + muscovado = heaven. (I was distracting myself from homework.)

A curtain. I like embroidery details.

It was one of those days.

You know, those days where you want to sing, but the words don't come out.

It must be the weather.

I will very much appreciate emails full of love right now.

I took photos of my little sister today

These are my very favorites.

WHY does she look so great in photos? I'm jealous.

P.S. I made her headband! New set of headbands coming up real soon.

The real kind, not the, "Oh, that's so sweet my teeth hurt," kind.

Here's a dress I bought in a thrift store for about 100 pesos ($2.50-ish). It's one of my very favorites and I wear it at least once a week. True facts.

This is today; I'm horribly sniffly.

Happy Easter, you guys. I'm overwhelmingly thankful that I'm free.
