I was trolling some vintage items in various etsy shops and found this set of four tea cups and saucers which I purchased for a dear friend's birthday—they are from Pony Party, a dangerous place for me.
I am so proud of myself for actually giving them to her, 'cause um—look at them. They are too good.
-I am finally watching the last season of Slings and Arrows, which I have been avoiding for 6 months because I love it so much I don't want it to end, but I am trying to just enjoy it.
-I am strongly re-thinking my recent agave nectar enthusiasm. Not because I have had a bad baking experience with it, but because. . .not sure why. I'd almost just rather eat bad stuff, just not very often than feel possibly disappointed with a substitute, you know? And to be honest, sweets make me want more sweets regardless of the sugar source. The only way I feel 100% not gross is with fruit, so I'd rather go whole hog when I do eat sweets (just not very often) and then stick with berries and apples the rest of the time. Don't get me wrong, I love agave, and I also love maple syrup, molasses, and honey, but when I make a classic cake or something like that, I am not sure I'd be happy with substitutions. At least I am consistently indecisive, you can say that about me anyway.
-I am looking for fall shoes and am excited about this brand, Gentle Soles which is hella expensive, but intriguing. And yet, looking at them again, they might be a little too urban hobbit for me. Not sure. And if I'm going to spend a ton of money on a pair of shoes, why not something like this? God. Why, why are these Anthro shoes so expensive? I just don't understand, and I want to—really, I do.
