Fit for a Princess: Pink Leopard Mat Board

Doesn’t every cat deserve to have their portrait painted? Mine sure does. So, when I saw one of my favorite artists, Katie Daisy, had painted a cat that looked *just like* Lola, I snapped at the chance to purchase a print of my own. Truth is it’s a painting of her kitty, Basil, but, shhhhhhhhhhh […]

Champagne and Pizza Kind of Monday

Lady Violet, the Dowager Countess of Badass Passive Aggressiveness.  You guys, can we just talk about TV for a second? I don’t usually talk about TV in an Around-The-Water-Cooler-Kind-of-Way, but it’s January and if I feel like wallowing in the jowls of sloth  (read: my awesome couch) you’d better believe I am going to enjoy […]

Wow I’m hungry.

The best and worst thing about winter is the calmness. The quiet. And as much as I resent the cold I appreciate the canvas. The contrast. Sun against snow is something really beautiful, you know. Like cheese and chocolate, or pretzels and ice cream, or sour cream on a hot tamale. Wow I’m hungry.  Come […]

The Communism of Cake

Well, I don’t know about you, but I could use a slice of Tom Selleck right about now. This MOST AMAZING SLICE OF CHOCOLATE MUSTACHE cake is courtesy of  Alicia Policia, who  also created the fantabulous Muppet party I featured back in November. She made this cake TWO YEARS AGO and it irks me to […]

You can’t procrastinate sequins

I’m feeling a little overwhelmed right now. It’s temporary. Nothing to worry about, although, it is enough to make the world seem a little heavier than usual.  It feels like my head is going to explode. Yes, I should combat this by making lists of priorities and remember what is important. Quit procrastinating, set my […]

Here Come The Sloths

Sloth Eating Spaghetti by Joe Havasy, $16.00 My love of cat videos has some new competition: sloth videos. A sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica had the genius idea to document their residents on video and upload them to youtube. Oh. Em. Gee. This has sent me on a week-long sloth crusade, learning everything I can […]

The House of the White Buffalo

Kiki gave me a giant white cardboard buffalo for Christmica. This is awesome because I adore taxidermy. It’s weird and unfashionable and it creeps out my guests, but there is something about creature parts that make me feel at home. Is that weird? Yeah, that’s weird. It’s cardboard and feels like a modern twist on […]

Yellow Snow

There was a crap ton of snow yesterday leaving everything blanketed in downy puffs of white. Delicate. Peaceful. One of the neighbor’s statues got her self a hair hat, and, for a moment there, she looked like a Victorian princess. I remember when I used to rat my hair like that. Because you know what […]
