The other day my dad walked into my room and handed me an anthology of sheet music for Joni Mitchell songs. He found on one of his many jaunts to half-price books and bought it for me on a whim. I'm so excited about it! I can't wait to start learning songs from it! Also, I think it has a very attractive cover. These things are important to me.
I visited my favorite dollar store recently and was delighted to see that the valentine's day merchandise is out already! Not because I love valentine's day or anything, I'm forever alone etc, I just like the chocolate and conversation hearts and tacky valentines day swag. I picked out this rose print ribbon from between the plastic pink party favors. What will I use it for? I have no idea. All I know is that I like it.
I may have mentioned in my last post that I made a headband out of some of the trim I found at JoAnn fabrics. Here it is! To make it, I just stole a tiny amount of 1/4 inch elastic from my sister and sewed it in the back to give it a little stretch. Also note the crochet blanket I have wrapped around my shoulders: it was a present from my grandmother, who made it a long time ago. She saw my crochet sweater and thought I might like to make something out of her old blanket. I think it's so pretty! I haven't made anything out of it yet, but I might just leave it as is and wear it as a shawl.
I went thrifting the other day and got a ton of great stuff! Among them were this black velvet button-down and these earrings. If you look closely you can see that they're snakes. They're the coolest!
Green velvet shoes!!! For $5!!! They're a little too small and pinch my feet but who cares! I'll just wear them when I don't have to do much walking. I like them a lot.
And now, I leave you with one of my favorite Joni Mitchell songs. I love the little monologue she does at the beginning of this version. Joni is a goddess.
