Things I ........

I'm in LOVE with these vintage letters! I found them in different etsy shops! It's a giant word search game via etsy. I'm thinking I'll take a 2x4 board, paint it red, and put these letters on it over the weekend. What do you think? 

I have lots of favorite things, and here's my newest favorite items - Letterpress letters! 
You may not know this but I work at a printer - very glamorous I know. And my dad works at the newspaper here locally.  Neither of us are actually printers, but wouldn't it be neat to have an old letter press!? So I started collecting the letterpress letters for my -fingers crossed- letterpress one day! Etsy is filled with wonderful letterpress letters! 
This letterpress drawer is awesome! 
So different from photoshop and fancy fonts. 

I really think these mermaid book ends from Plasticland are perfect!
Isn't this cake carry so pretty! The top saids, "Everything is better with frosting!" 
I don't like frosting, but I know that many people do! This is over at Plasticland too!
I found this on etsy during my little lamb search! It's a death moth felted pin, you may remember it from Silence of the Lambs -Chelsey this will be your one for today! The really death moth has a skull shape design on it's back - pretty amazing. My great aunt wears bug pins on her shoulder (she's a nut ps) maybe she would love this!
And these - I thought of my brother when I saw these, the texting king! When he's home his cell phone is NEVER quiet. He's a charming fellow, what can I say! Danny I need to make you an STFU one :) I love you and miss you!

Have a wonderful weekend!

oh man. that's creepier than when buffalo bill tucks his junk in--and that's pretty freaking creepy.

maybe i'll be clarice for halloween and make a felt one of those to wear over my mouth (like on the movie cover). but then i'd probably end up choking on it or something.

i looovvvvveeee those letterpress letters--so pretty. i was just looking at some (on etsy, of course) the other day!

I'd like to talk about that little green owl in the second picture. Is that yours? I'm in love.
I saw similar ones at the museum near my house and I've been thinking about them ever since.
