Random Fun Wednesday – Hats and Art!

Woo for mid-week! Since it’s still cold in places, and I obvs have a particular affinity, the first fab topic is hats! There are SO MANY options if you’re looking for a cute way to keep all that heat in your head this winter! Next up, some amazing artists who also happen to be ladies!…

Let’s All Appreciate Quilting!

Several weeks ago (right before the madness of Halloween), I attended Houston’s International Quilt Festival. It is an event I have been familiar with my whole life, partially because of my mother (she owns a “quilt cabinet”), and partially because we are just a nice, Southern family and so we have about a million quilts,…

Random Fun Wednesday!

Since I’m merely a human being, and (thankfully) not a Superlady who is obligated to do all the things at all the times, I’m offering a muddled collection of random things I am thinking about/interested in today for your viewing pleasure. First off, Houston has re-elected our gay, liberal Mayor (yay!), but also voted down…

Halloween Costumes – Make One Already!

It’s almost OFFICIALLY Halloween, y’all!!! I am literally bursting at my seams (and various orifices) in anticipation of it!

This particular Yankee gal, named Lizzie Borden, born in 1860, went to trial for the murder of her father and stepmother in 1892,…

These are the gendered “best friends” of men and women. Dogs are loyal, adorable, cuddly, dependable, help save lives and are sometimes totally disgusting. Diamonds are shiny, gorgeous, delightful status symbols, the strongest stone and sometimes totally disgusting. I read an article on the Huffington Post (as I am known, quite frequently, to do) this…

Francesca Woodman – Photographer

Like many of my fellow sexy nerds, I’m all about watching documentaries on Netflix. All the times! They can be about many various things: war, inventions, history in general, but especially the intense or icky bits, odd “animal couples” (Spoiler Alert: that old horse totally dies and leaves his goat buddy all alone! It’s not…

Pants: Yay or Nay?

Inspired by the unrelenting heat, and the above exquisite photo of Vivian Leigh, I wore pants to work today. I don’t often do this, partially because I find putting on a dress is easier than pairing a top with pants, and also because I own a finite amount of them. Like, two pair that fit…
