Redheads, Music, Boxes and Cereal

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Good morning!



I feel bad writing this, since a friend of mine once told me (and I very much agree) that time goes by fast enough so we shouldn’t will it to go faster… but I really am happy that it’s almost Thursday and almost Friday now! I love the weekends. Do you remember that Redheaded Sailor Kokeshi I’d mentioned last week? Well, this is how she turned out… you can track the inspiration behind her *here* and *here*.



(A fan of unrequited love songs)

Are you familiar with the band Electrelane? ‘To the East’ (video posted below) is a favorite especially the lyrics: If you'd ever say these words, I'd come to you, where you are It's too hard to be apart....



(Also) George ’s boxes but hates being photographed:



And lastly, since I have the mentality of a five year old, I adore these seasonal cereals. They only sell them around Halloween. Franken-Berry is king:



Wishing you a lovely Wednesday!
*besos*

tee hee! you are so funny! i love how your little wooden doll turned out. PERFECT!

and george is camera shy. how silly, as he is such a handsome devil. my cats are the same and just DO NOT cooperate when the camera comes out. urgh.

now hurry up friday, so we can get to the business of LIVING (versus the snore of working)!

Oh goodness! Just look at your little sailor Kokeshi! Adorable.

Thank you for sharing Electrelane. I loved the song and video. It was a 5 minutes well spent. I'm always happy to come across new music, though I tend to listen to the same stuff over and over without welcoming much else to the rotation. I've tracked down some Electrelane cd's via the library and I can just tell they'll be a great addition.

Las Redheads molan! Y me gustan mucho Electrelane! Las has visto en concierto? En el festival Summercase de hace 3 veranos estuvieron geniales! Ah! Y la banda sonora de Karen O también me ha encantado! Gracias!

Alecca Rox said...

*George looks so funny in that box:))

Keith said...

I had someone once tell me that I shouldn't be wishing for the weekend to hurry up and get here. Because I was rushing through days of my life or something like that.

"C" said...

Hell yeah Booberries. I just got some last week.

Kelley Anne said...

Oh that's wonderful. The doll is adorable, George is dignified as ever, and the bit about the cereal is so cute! My husband always complains that I buy him the wrong cereals, so maybe I'll surprise him with some seasonal ones.

sealaura said...

That song is amazing! You've exposed me to such wonderful music in just a matter of minutes. Oh, you are good.

I love those cereals as well. You take such lovely pictures. The lighting is always beautiful.

Franken Berry!!! Oh bless The good old U.S of A! We don't have that sort of fun down here!! George, George, George - what can I say? You are a true pussy cat to be sure - that box lovin' is a dead give away! (What is it about cats and boxes?) ...and *sigh* handsome as ever. Lastly - love the little cute redhead - what are your plans there? If you ever opened a shop, you understand they would sell out in seconds flat don't you? Anyway, Gabbi - have a lovely rest of your week - I tell you Thursday rocked!! XOX

Hello there cute George in a box! What a cute little fellow he is!

I'm not usually a big fan of cereal, but starting the morning off with a bowl of that halloween themed cereal would put a big smile on my face :)
