Cluttered Rooms & Granny Porn

K, I know you want to hear about the “granny pr0n” first. We’ve been suddenly struck with a severe case of summer. In the Bay Area that generally lasts from sept. 1st through sept. 29th. And then it rains until March (when we’re not having a drought). So. It’s been to hot to stay indoors, Saturday we tried driving around but all exits from the area were clogged with Labor Day Weekend Flotsam so we scooted sideways over to antique shop mecca — Martinez! Found my dad an old, hand smithied cowbell that he wanted for his yard gate. That was gratifying, actually found random item we were looking for. But the random item we WEREN’T looking for was even more fun. Some vintage 1930’s fabric caught my eye. Hrm. Pink pot holders. And then the neon sticker on top “Naughty Pot Holders.” Wtf!?! A quick inspection had me giggling insanely and scuttling for the counter to quickly pay my devastating $6 for the two potholders. I call them “granny porn” because it tickles me to think someone’s grandmother stitched these. Without further adieu:






Also, remember this pic:


Buahahaa! Well, it is no more.


Honest, it is not usually this messy, but I have run out of storage space, also clutter due in part to the building of la Casa Formica, which has a lot of items floating aimlessly. Spent the weekend haunting cheap furniture outlets to try and find a single storage solution to the 2384734 little plastic boxes with drawers etc. No such luck! So today we decided we (that is, Mr. Kallisti) are just gonna build a closet-like frame with a shelves that the storage units I already have can stack onto. I will then make a quaint gingham curtain with which to hide the mess. I swear, it is not usually this bad!
Also, got a box from Volks today, with my Super Dollfie dress form. Wooo! Also the new iridescent eyes in baby blue and purple. Volks is also packing all recent orders with the new product catalogs. Super nice!



It is beautiful. Very well finished and professional looking. It goes up and down too. Heh.
