live beside the ocean

Are you ever been in the car, and all of the sudden a song comes on, that you haven't heard in ages?
It's almost like you're hearing it for the first time, over again?
A song that you didn't know you had forgotten how much you liked. That happened to me, about a month ago.

L.A.M.B. Spring RTW 2012

I am still living with your ghost 
Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
L.A.M.B. Spring RTW 2012

I don't want to be your downtime 

I don't want to be your stupid game

L.A.M.B. Spring RTW 2012

With my big black boots and an old suitcase 

I do believe I'll find myself a new place 
Carven Spring RTW 2012

 I don't want to be the bad guy 
I don't want do your sleepwalk dance anymore
Carven Spring RTW 2012

I just want to see some palm trees 

I will try and shake away this disease
Me on the beach

We can live beside the ocean 

Leave the fire behind
My guy stretching on the beach.

Swim out past the breakers 

Watch the world die
My nephew Speed Racer is hugging his dad,
 my brother
 am still dreaming of you face 
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
My twin nieces

I don't want to be your good time 

I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore

My nephew Baby JJ

I'll walk right out into a brand new day 

Insane and rising in my own weird way

My art journal pages

I think I may have drawn these faces
with my left hand.

It says: Sometimes she didn't feel like being nice. Sometimes she felt snarky.
Sometimes she just wanted some peace.
Sometimes she wanted to be left alone.
Road trip essentials: fully charged iPods,
camera, full tank of gas
I don't want to be the bad guy 

I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

I just want to feel some sunshine 
I just want to find some place to be alone
We can live beside the ocean 
Leave the fire behind

Swim out past the breakers 

Watch the world die
Yeah watch the world die

  1. Hi, Teddi! I was away for much of July and didn't spend much time on the computer, but thank you (as always) for your sweet comments!

  2. Absolutely adorable pics :).. drooling over the carven pieces

  3. Great photos!

    Much love from the SABO SKIRT girls!

  4. I like that song!
    and I like the LAMB dresses!
    and I also like your left hand drawings!
    I guess I like this post :)
    P.S. Yesterday I went to my yoga class and while staring at the floor during a position I couldn't avoid making shapes out of the tile pattern.. and I remembered what you said about doing that too and lost concentration and fell :S but I did see chuby elephant with a tiara in that tile! :)

  5. Teddi loved seeing you on the beach. Great tent! OK lamb has the best items but their prices suck. I can take the inspiration from the pics and hit the thrift. Oh the vibrant colors! Have a great weekend beach babe! Dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  6. hi dear,

    amazing pictures! i really like your blog

    would you mind and take a look at my blog? We can become friends too :)

    XO, Carmen

  7. Hey Teddi :)
    I wish it as hot enough here for me to go to the beach, look s like to had a great time and lovely photos.
    I have just posted a video to my blog and would love it if you could check it out :


  8. Have you ever been reading song lyrics, and trying to figure out if it's one you know? And then all of a sudden you come to one line, and you can suddenly hear it in your head? ;)

  9. They play old songs on the radio anymore besides the actual oldie stations. Even request hour has little variety. "Here's the song some unemployed basement dweller asked for which hasn't played on this station for a very long 45 minutes".

    I eventually had to cut my radio off for good. Changing stations can make it a little better but my MP3 player is better. I actually found my old mp3 player, and it was quite fun listening to my old collection.

  10. I like the collection, and your nephew is so cute.

  11. I can see you're into bold patterns right now ;) and to be honest I'm pretty much in love with all kinds of stripes, so great inspiration for me! oh and I remember you asked about my golden glitter nail polish.. I haven't used it much but I've tried it though. I think I should mix it with some other colour and then do my pedicure :P

  12. Ted Saturday it happened to me ... my mother left on the radio .. and suddenly got a song that I do not remember .. but I still sing ... I did not believe that still sing that song ... = D

  13. the second I read your post title that song came flooding into my head. haven't heard it in forever!

    Looks like you're having a great summer, hanging at the beach with your guy and extended family :)

  14. Love that first dress! And adorable pictures from the beach :)

    /S / http://

  15. It's amazing to see you went to the beach, I went yestefrday! Songs bring us back great moments... I like to see Baby JJ so much, he's just soooo cute! It's a great idea the tent to the beach, I think I need one for summer, but pople here use big umbrellas... I think I'd like the tent better!

  16. you've a really lovely blog <3 it's really fantastic <3 may we can follow each other? :D

  17. That cherry red Carven dress is making me positively ooze with envy. It's seriously gorgeous. Quirky, sexy, and polished all at once. You always pick out the best runway looks!

    May the force be with you.

  18. You have described so perfectly one of my favorite things in life...thank you for putting it wonderfully in words ♥

  19. I like those LAMB shoes!

  20. I LOVE it when a song I havent heard in ages comes on the radio, it always brightens my day :)
    I love your blog - I'm not sure if I follow you, I can't find a follow button anywhere :(
    Also, thank you for all your sweet comments on my blog Xx

  21. That happens to me all the time i'll be at a party and then a song will come on and i'll just start singing the song not knowing where or when i heard it before its a great feeling very mysterious unless of course memories flood into your head when thinking or this song. And like i have said many times before your journal is amazing.

  22. hahaha that song dilemma happened to me last week with this song: "Drive" from Incubus! it used to be my fave song back in middle school<3 I turned up the volume and sang it so loud!

    I love all the dresses you featured here, great colors!

    cute pictures of you and your family as always ;)


  23. I know what you mean that is what I love about music every time I hear a song that reminds me of someone or a time of my life it takes me straight away there! Your art journal is brilliant. I need to start one :)

  24. the collection from lamb is rad! lovely pictures and cute nieces! <3 xx
