A miraculous thing happened the other day – my sweetheart found a magical dumpster
filled with all sorts of wonderful things. The very best was this killer cotton candy maker:
As you can see, it works very well indeed. The process is quite magical, like
there’s a big spider hidden in the hot coil that spools the sugar out into clouds.
We made pink peppermint and blue lavender candyfloss, and it was the prettiest
and tastiest we’d ever had. We even started making it with turbinado sugar, so
we could feel a little less guilty about playing herds of children with it. Needless
to say, whoever was operating the cotton candy machine was the star of the
Easter party! The little yickens were totally transfixed, sugar maniacs in heaven.
Colin is so happy and proud of his sweet machine! Adorable, adored.
He also found me this cake-shaped porcelain vase in the same dumpster!
Gene Tierney presents it for our delectation. She lives on my lavatory door.
The sweetest little duckling that was gifted to me for my birthday made her
way onto my Easter bonnet – photographic evidence to follow!
I love the illustration style from this 1920′s children’s book so much.
The graceful branches, the owls and lanterns!
The pastel cicadas and the full moon. It sends me.
This little poem from the same book is a keeper, too.
Check out this kick-ass Ozma of Oz tattoo! She’s basically my very first style
icon. I still am obsessed with that style of headdress. I need to make more!
We rolled out of bed after far too little sleep for the free matinee
showing of The Dark Crystal at the Alamo Drafthouse recently.
Can you believe this skeksis lamp? I cannot. The lightbulb looks
like a purple shard! It was so fantastic seeing this film on the big
screen! It’s such a work of genius! I’m so inspired by the creatures
in this film. If by some shocking twist of fate, you’ve managed never
to see it – then I adjure you to remedy that immediately. Okay?
