have you seen the new photo project by the selby, that he did for cole haan? well, have you seen that one of the people included in that project was maria sharapova, who designed her own collection for cole haan - including these lovelies (with Nike Air, so that means they're comfortable, right?)
holy sweet mother of shiny shoes!
me likey... a LOT
i have quite a few collections... old cameras, tins, acorns, owls, snow globes, shot glasses, skeleton keys, tiny glass bottles, matchbooks, vintage postcards, and recently - buttons.
sometimes collecting things can get a little out of control - the husband also had a shot glass collection so with ours combined we have well over a hundred now!
that being said - i often fall in like with things i want to collect - most recently: teaspoons. when i was in winnipeg last month, thrifting with Leigh-Ann, i noticed an entire box of adorable vintage collectible teaspoons in one of the shops. they were all individually priced but i was really tempted to make an offer on the entire box... hello instant collection!
i didn't do it, but i have been thinking about them ever since... maybe i will look around some thrift shops here in kelowna some time soon...
would you like to start your own instant collection?
here are some good starters i found on Etsy recently, you may want to snap them up before i do :)
(which reminds me, i found the most adorable little glass bottle at an antique store in texas when i was there over the holidays and it had the sweetest little owl on it! i bought it of course. i keep meaning to post a picture)
it's time to upgrade my cell phone and i can't decide...
iPhone vs. Blackberry
I like that the iPhone (3G) has a large screen, great music player/iTunes, a million fun apps, and the touch screen interface is super easy to use (except for typing, in my case).
I like that the Blackberry (9700) is faster, has a proper key button pad, speedy emails, can record video, and the instant messaging service since just about everyone I know has a Blackberry (so messaging would be free).
I will use it primarily for emailing, web surfing/blog reading, listening to music and taking photos... and the occasional phone call :)
What do you folks think?
The salespeople at the phone stores were no help to me whatsoever.
i'm back from my trip - unfortunately i'm even sicker now than when i left.
today is my two year blog-birthday/anniversary and yesterday was my shop's. i was going to post something special but my brain feels like mush right now as it's full of this cold/flu/whatever-i-have - so i'll save that for another day soon.
in the meantime, here is a lovely video for your monday morning...
discovered via here, although i've seen it at a couple of other places now too
