Thursday's Got Me All in a Tizz and I'm Dunking my Biscuit in My Tea

And the lucky winner is Dooder City !! The Little Boy earrings will be off to NYC soon.

This week I have a Flying Duck to giveaway ... write me a comment and you'll be in the loop.


Just because I'm tired 
and don't have the inclination to write a passage 
I've stolen one from my main man Keats ... 
and then some pretty pictures of goldfish ... 
these are dedicated to my most recent edition Wednesday
My goldfish who has not yet died

 HAD a dove and the sweet dove died; 
And I have thought it died of grieving: 
O, what could it grieve for? Its feet were tied, 
With a silken thread of my own hand's weaving; 
Sweet little red feet! why should you die - 
Why should you leave me, sweet bird! why? 
You liv'd alone in the forest-tree, 
Why, pretty thing! would you not live with me? 
I kiss'd you oft and gave you white peas; 
Why not live sweetly, as in the green trees? 

from we heart it 

from Very Vintage ....

thanks for the sweet comment, means a lot to me! i love your jewelry, i just love recycling old children's illustrations. i like the stanimals too, they remind me of church dolls that little girl in new orleans used to bring with them to church, the idea being that when dropped they would not make a sound :).
good luck with Wednesday, i've officially given up on fish as too many died on my watch, but they can be so pretty!
