I am not a robot.

My new music obsession? Marina and The Diamonds! But wouldn't you know it's almost all but impossible to find her music.

Enjoy the video. My favorite line: "Better to be hated than loved for what you're not."

Do it like the Greeks

I have been in love with Grecian style headbands for awhile now, but never actually saw any to buy. Last year, I finally found some leather ones at Urban Outfitters and was so thrilled that I grabbed 3. I love this one on Blake Lively.

The best part is their versatility. It can be worn showing all three strands, or twisted together to create a rope look, around your forehead, or even as a necklace!

I started thinking, aha!, maybe I should start making them. During the summer, I mostly knit with cotton yarns. They're so lightweight and come in tons of colors. It seemed like the perfect material to use for a headband. So starting today I will be selling these cute Grecian style headbands in my shop! The first one I'm listing is turquoise, but there will be more colors to come.

A little inspiration.

I miss blogging! Ah. Life has been sorta crazy. But I am still trucking along.

A few things inspiring me lately:

Fashion blogs! I get a fresh dose of ideas every time.

a cat's nest! Everything in this shop makes me want to get out my crochet hook or maybe just buy one of her adorable shrugs!

Castledoor! I knew a couple of these guys in another life and I'm happy to see they're still making music. And their live show is as energetic as ever.

And of course these little faces!
