it's a brown thing

You've seen these thrifted pants here before.
My blouse is also thrifted. I like that it's brown lace.

...moving, rippling with ornately patterned puddles: a diamond, a tapestry, star-crossed lovers, a wrinkle in time. It was beautiful... from book Love Will Tear Us Apart by Sarah Rainone

My mom made the necklace & bracelet you see.

My mom also made the middle silver
 and brown bracelet.
When I bought this thrifted purse,
I didn't notice the Tommy Hilfiger  label.
I wonder if it's real or fake. 

Here's some recent art my guy and I saw.

Here's my art journal pages
 using collage, paint, colored pencils drawings.
The words on the right page are lyrics
from the song "Wounded" by Third Eye Blind.

...But how could I have expected them to remember that? They weren't like me, marking every occasion not with words spoken, but with the music that drowned them out...

  1. love this post and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
    Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

  2. I also have a thrifted Tommy bag that I'm not sure is real, but I like it and use it! And yes, it's definitely not summery in my neck of the woods!

  3. Oh wooow, those paintings are breathtaking!

  4. Hey ! Your mom seems to do beautiful jewelries, lucky you !!!

  5. I love that whimsical art work and everyone in your family is so talented with jewellery making! I really like that brown lace top- I have a very similar one except it's tunic length!

  6. well, the logo/name looks pretty real but the bag doesn't remind me of TH though maybe it's a vintage one from many many years ago.. it should have signs inside the bag as well. oh and your top reminds me of one I own. it's also brown and kind of lacy :)
