This picture was taken of me by Juliet Ames, of The Broken Plate during the holidays. I think it's really funny. I may have been a little tipsy as I appear to be telling secrets right into a camera! Jill Popowich is the one giggling in the background. She's always giggling, which a wonderful quality in a friend.

**Editor's note: It has come to my attention that Allison Fomich, of Tigerlillyshop, actually took this picture. Thanks, Allison!

Etsy Love: Moxie and Oliver

Every once in a while you come across an artist that really just speaks to you. That's how I feel about Moxie and Oliver and their shop on Etsy. They make beautifully crafted leather belts, dog collars, purses, flasks and more. Their work reminds me of old west meets modern design. It also reminds me just a little bit of one of my first artistic endeavors: leather work at sleep-away camp. Of course, none of my leather work efforts even hold a candle to Moxie and Oliver.

These items are just a sample of the many incredible pieces they have for sale. Be sure to check out their shop for even more tempting treasures.

"Poppy Patern Purse" - I'm crazy about this purse. The colors, composition and design are just precious.
"Winged Heart Leather Clutch" - Adorable and badass at the same time.

"Sugar Skulls Purse" - I love this Day of the Dead themed purse. There is so much detail to this piece, including crossed shotguns on the back of the bag.

Caked Walk

It's funny how when you move away from a place, the very things you used to mock you somehow end up missing. That's how I felt when I was visiting Seattle last week and came across this scene (captured above). I used to joke about how the winds came one day in the fall and blew off all the leaves. Then the rain would start for the season, leaving sidewalks carpeted with leaves. Somehow or another, I miss those soggy, leaf-caked sidewalks. There really isn't any logical explanation for this. Maybe I just miss Seattle.
