comment to be added.

What is on your holiday wish list this year? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

i made a blog post of the sewing-related stuff i want - namely, patterns, fabric, sewing books & another pair of gingher scissors.

non-sewing related,
nice pajamas, like these from victoria's secret.

aaaand that's about it. i would like a new television, but i don't want anything smaller than 32" (go big or go home amirite) and anything in that size range is much more than i would feel comfortable with someone spending on me for a christmas present.

lol i'm so boring.

since i have nothing better to do with my time, here are photos of every vintage (and not-really-vintage-bc-80s-is-too-new-to-be-vintage) pattern i own. UNF i love me some vintage patterns.

alternately, we can discuss the vintage pattern wiki and how i just recently discovered it and am now feeding a cray-cray addiction.

everyone: let's share the love!!!

cutCollapse )
i am also keeping this entry public because i'm reckless like that.

got any good vintage patterns? post 'em!

I'm helping to save a guy named Dave's house and land from foreclosure by promoting the Save Dave Online Auction being held on LiveJournal now through November 20, 2009.
Everything ranging from tech support and professional editing to yarn and everything knitted you can imagine. Autographed first editions and TV/movie memorabilia. Want custom or handmade jewelry, or a custom quilt or book bag? Think someone might like original art or photos (or letterpressed biz cards, or custom notecards) for Upcoming Holiday Gifting? What about baked goods People are even auctioning off surprises and taking offers for custom duct tape creations!

People who don't even know this guy Dave have brought the best of themselves to help him stay in his home. Most auctions are ending around Halloween...go check out what's on offer before it's over! And if you can, spread the word about the auction. Thanks!

i put up a small purse made of brown herringbone and blue satin for auction... you can see it here. bid if you feel so inclined :) this is a good cause and i feel good supporting it.

nvm y'all, it appears that voting closed and/or the site is down due to massive traffic. thanks for your help!
for those who missed it: i'm trying to win this contest to be a walk-in for an episode of mad men ::fans self:: omfg i wish, favorite show EVAR.

and some pictures of me dressed man men style:





morgan took the photos, i think they are amazing!!

i made my dress and did my hair - well, it looked really awful from the back, but i think the front turned out nice. and obvs that is my kitchen, restyled for photo purposes.
what do y'all think??

Writer's Block: Local Favorite

What's your favorite thing to show out-of-town guests when they come to visit?

pix post, because they are more fun!

the parthenon - it is the only built-to-scale replica of the parthenon in the world. why is there one in nashville? i have no idea. also, it's in the middle of a beautiful park, centennial park. we love centennial park.

lower broadway, for honky-tonkin' and tourist watchin' (it's fun! promise!)

robert's western world, the best honky tonk like, ever. it was listed in esquire as one of the best bars in america, no shit.

paradise park is another great bar on lower broadway - themed after a trailer park (wood paneling, nascar pictures, astroturf, broken toilets, etc). their in-house country band sucks big balls, but that can easily be avoided if you go earlyish on a weeknight.

printer's alley downtown, if only because it makes absolutely no fuckin sense in comparison with the rest of that area.

drivin down I-65 to view our gorgeous(tiny) skyline.


cafe coco for beerz and delicious hummus at 3AM.

dragon park so we can climb all over the dragon!

great escape - a huge record/comic book store that is huge enough to have two locations *and* a discount outlet.

pancake pantry is world-famous for it's pancakes. and yes, the line is that long pretty much every morning. it's worth it, promise.

gigi's cupcakes. the pink lemonade ones are my fave.

red door saloon. the decor is one third voodoo/skulls, one third PBR, and one third old style beer. the owner is a big cubs fan.

the patterson house is an uber hoity-toity bar where the cheapest cocktail is $11. the drinks are AMAZING, though - they have fresh fruit, fresh herbs, essential oils (i know that sounds weird, bear with me here) and they put on a little show when they make it in front of you. all the bartenders wear collared shirts and vests.

vanderbilt campus has the prettiest gardens and millions of trees. and squirrels, if you're into that kind of thing.

rivergate mall isn't really anything special, except it is one of the trashiest malls EVAR with prime people-watching opportunities.

nashville public library - i've been told it's one of the biggest libraries in the US at 300k sq ft. it has a courtyard in the middle (the library is a circle) with a fountain and lots of flowers and greenery. the library is 3 stories tall with marble staircases and tons of artwork everywhere. it is *beautiful*.

provence breads and cafe is like panera on CRACK. everything is handmade and local... they have dozens of cheeses, all-natural breads (like, the ingredients are flour, water, yeast... etc. nothing you can't pronounce), amazing sandwiches and coffee drinks... but the best part is the desert selection. cakes and pies and cookies and pastries and these lemon sun cookies and creme brulee and omg i'm going to provence this weekend.

the opryland hotel - i guess it's the biggest non-casino hotel in america? anyway, all that shit in the picture is INDOORS. it's this amazing winter wonderland during christmas. last time i went, they had gingerbread houses that were like, big enough for me to walk in.

gah, i love nashville.
so, who is coming to visit me??

had a productive weekend! i finished the foyer (all that was left was some basic cleaning... and uhh i didn't get all the paint off the floor, whoops!), painted the hallway, painted picture frames, and hung shelves in the sewing room closet. i ended up not painting the inside of the closet... i may end up doing it at a later time, but i didn't have money to buy paint, so i was going to just use the rest of the green leftover from the sewing room and it was really fucked up and thin and watery and... oily. i don't even know. i gave up. then i fucked up the anchors for the shelves *and* broke my drill bit. fuck fuck fuck shit piss.

anyway, everything has been cleaned and put away. here are some pictures:
about 30 pictures, sryCollapse )
i guess that's it. let's talk about my walls, plz.

west side news: a real shitty, but free, publication available downtown. they have a section called "ticked off!" that's basically a bunch of short rants anonymously submitted. this just in today:

"well, i'd like to put my two cents in. i had company, and we went to shoney's. they were too crowded, so we went to applebee's. there were about eight of us, and we were very embarassed because they said that if we wanted bread, we would have to pay for it. most places just bring bread out as long as you want. so, we were kind of upset about that. i think we ordered just a few pieces. we didn't get any more bread, not even with our meal. so, if you want to eat at applebee's, be sure to bring some rolls or something."

words cannot describe the way i feel right now.

i love text messaging.

ben: your mix cd rocks the casbah
me: your face rocks the casbah.
ben: such an aggressive comment so early in the morning
me: WHAT! what are you doing awake so early?
ben: wakey wakey said the morning to ben
me: and then there was light.
ben: and then there was work
me: and then darkness and despair covered the land
ben: and then morticai the messenger falcon flew for the 7th sea, never to return
me: well, he came back in time for dinner. it was sloppy joe night.
ben: the 7th sea must have been closer than mapquest indicated
me: obviously he should have borrowed that gps device
ben: stubborn damn falcon
me: men and their directions!
