Things I Love Thursday

Holy moly it's cold and wet here in Nashville! The high today is 50 (wha?!) but luckily it's supposed to dry up for a couple of days. I swear Nashville's weather rivals San Francisco no doubt. (Not that this is relevant to really anyone, but hey, whatever!) Anywhoo! I've been living in my pajamas the past few days trying to get some stuff done but Mike took it upon himself to oversee all of Kaelah's Closet (!!!) so all but 3 orders have been shipped! Wahoo! I promise to shower soon and maybe actually get dressed so I'll have some outfit posts lined up. Until then you get to look at pretty things! Have at it!

this is so true. i love mean girls 
(and I quote it every time I buy/eat Toaster Strudels!)

♥ this shark tattoo 

♥ this piece of advice 

 i hope santa brings me these ghost world dolls 

♥ this house (!!!) dress 
this drawing Becca did of me! (order your own here!)
(is it self-centered of me to keep these awesome portraits on display in our house?! i mean, it's not like i commissioned them of myself or anything. they're really lovely gifts and i love to display artwork here but i'm always curious what others might think!)

Other things of the awesome variety: Here are five signs that Ryan Gosling might actually be God  These hand lettered logos from defunct department stores (they're so beautiful!)  This pink velvet roulade recipe looks magnificent! (Perfect for Valentine's Day next year!)  Design*Sponge's "Living In Clueless" mood boards! (Favorite movie!)  Grace just listed a Ron Swanson mug in her shop! (!!! It's not a valid TiLT post without the Ron man!)  Elisa shares her holiday suggestions on finding the perfect gift  Cassie from The Veda House shared Mike Perry's studio (If you're into awesome illustration, you have to love you some Mike Perry!)  Alejandra shares her sweet pup with us!  Emily's Value Meal Ring Set is one of my favorite things we have stocked in Honeybean! Seriously, it makes me want to watch Aqua Teen!  and last but not least, if you're looking for a blog to fill a colorful void in your life, Color Issue just might do the trick!

What are you loving this week?!


  1. MEAN GIRLS!! It might sound ridiculous to say this, but I think that may be one of the most well-crafted movies of our generation.

    Also... my nail-beds suck.

  2. It's a good thing you have a tumblr, because that's basically al that exists there- mean girls quotes, cats, and tattoos. Throw in a heaping helping of feminism and you've got yourself a PARTY.

  3. Awww I love the house dress and Kate and her blog are just awesome sauce! And it's so cool that you inspire others to draw you. I don't think it's self centered at all to put them up in your house! Here's my list for the week:

  4. Cute drawing! And def not self-centered to keep it up in your house. Amazing artwork is amazing artwork! And there are people who don't like mean girls!? Who knew?

  5. I love that "Do what makes sense to you" print. I blogged about Ryan Gosling yesterday. I mean, there's something about him that makes it impossible for you not to fall victim to his stereotypical, heartthrob-ness. I think he's like a sneaky Batman.


  6. I love everything on that list as well. I must check out Kate's blog. And i love the drawing of you. Its not self centered to display the lovely drawings of you that people do. :)

    Have an awesome day
    <3 Jenn

  7. I am in love with the avocado couples tattoo! That is so cute :)

    It isn't self-centered. Your house is exactly that, yours, so display away!

  8. I love, love this post! :))
    Cats and tattoos *.*

  9. i love the mean girls thing! that's so funny!!!

  10. Mean Girls! Yes!! My friends and I quote that movie all the time, it's one of our favorites!

    I don't think it's self-centered to hang up that artwork. I think it's so cool that others want to draw you! Confession: Holly from Order + Chaos drew me, and I saved the drawing to my phone and used it as my wallpaper! Haha, now THAT was probably a little self-centered, but I don't care. I thought it was cool. :D

  11. i am really loving that mean girls quote and that house dress. so cool!

    <3 rae

  12. haha! I miss MadTV too.

    Not self-centered at all! Like you said 'they're gifts' and I think it's a nice reminder of your accomplishments and how appreciated you are by others that you might have met through the things you do (assuming you met the artist through this). :)

  13. haha love this post! and I really don't think its self centered, because people hang photos up of themselves in there house all the time. yours just happens to be drawn ;) hope you have a wonderful day! Btw, you've inspired me to get a notebook and keep a running list of things to get done, because a lot of times if I don't see it, I don't remember it. and for me checking things off a list feels really rewarding.

  14. No matter how many times I see that doll house dress I will never not lusting over it!

  15. funny! I love the "best things in life" list also. The value menu rings are awesome and I'll have to keep Elisa's holiday suggestions in mind! :)

  16. the house dress and the mean girls thing is aewsome

  17. My Nana takes her wig off when shes drunk.I have no one in my personal life I can quote 'Mean Girls' with, isn't that a travesty?

    Haha Stewart!

    Kate is adorable, I love her blog.

    I love 'Ghost World' these are super cute. How can you go wrong with kittens in the pocket or a doll dress?! What a cute drawing of you as well. Great list as always.


  18. beautiful tattoos and kittens as well

  19. aw thank you so much!!! You are too sweet! :D

  20. I love that list of the best things in life, and I agree that Kate is super adorable. :D

    Thanks for sharing another great list of lovely things. <3

  21. Haha Mean Girls... yes, I so agree. That picture of you is adorable!


  22. Thank you for the link to Kate's blog, "scathingly brilliant". She is adorable. I want to pick her up and put her in my pocket! (that's not supposed to be creepy :)

  23. hello pretty, just started following your blog, and was wondering if you could give me some pointers on how you designed your blog, just with the buttons from other peoples blogs, i really like the way you have them so perfectly closely spaced together. If you could take a look at my page and tell me what I'm doing wrong here, that would be ,uch appreciated. LOVE!


  24. those avocado tattoos are so sweet! If my husband shared my obsession with them I would definitely play copycat. Also, that portrait of you is so cute!

  25. lol @ stewart ... and *gasp* that house dress

  26. "You can't sit with us!" Mean Girls is such a quotable movie! Love it!

    Also, it's not self-centered to have art of yourself up that's done by amazing people. They sent it to you because they enjoy you and your work! Now you will be able to enjoy their work and see it everyday!

  27. ah, i miss mad tv too! "LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!"

    and I don't think it's self centered that you display the artwork with you in it around the house. they are all so lovely! <3

  28. oh, and I got my order from Kaelah's closet in RECORD TIME! Thanks Mike :D

  29. Kate seriously is one of the cutest gals ever! Also, I love those avocado tattoos AND that ecard thing about means girl is HILARIOUS! I love Mean Girls :) Looks like me and you can be friends! Haha
