mustache necklace! at Swiss Miss

When I’m old I’m totally getting a big old tricycle like this, at the dirt on fert

Both Mighty Goods and SundryBuzz like shiny sheer lipsticks. These look promising, lipsticks with saturated colors make me look like a clown, or a crazylady.

CB2 is opening a store in San Francisco, yay, another reason to take a trip there soon

This collection of souvenir photographs is brilliant.

    Oh, crap. Was I supposed to wait until I was *old* to get a trike like that? Cause, um, I already ordered mine and it should be ready next week. :)

    Kelly – You’re never too young. I was thinking of an old couple I used to see riding tricycles like that to and from the grocery store in the town I grew up in. They had huge baskets mounted on the back, and one had a tall orange flag like you used to see on bicycles in the 70s, except much taller. They were teh awesome.

    You can order them online from either Target or WalMart. They’ve even got electric versions for the lazy.

    I get to ride a trike like that everyday. They use them in the warehouse where I work. They make me feel like a little kidl. :)

    Don’t wait until you’re old – I got that bike (a red workman) for my birthday this year! Seriously it just makes me smile like an idiot everytime I get on it. :)

    I love the hobble skirt link! So odd but interesting–and it gives me a new way to describe my strange wedding dress for anyone who looks at the pics and inquires why I chose such a funny skirt :-)

    Cakespy, was it made of latex?
