Some of the kids in our neighborhood are on the high school soccer team. I was talking to one and noticed he had steps cut into his hair just about his sideburns. I asked "What's with the hair Vanilla Ice?" and he just stared at me blankly. Turns our they did it for a soccer tourney coming up. Who doesn't know Vanilla Ice or this song? We would blast it from our measly car stereos and sing it at the top of our lungs back in high school. Apparently that was a long time ago. What does it remind you of? Besides a blatant rip of from Queen.

This was on the radio when I picked up Caroline from preschool. She had just come from the Thanksgiving dinner and was dressed as a pilgrim, but kept telling me she was an Indian. She heard this song and said, "Mom, it is the Indian song!". I told her the name and she keeps talking about it, Barracuda Heart. This song reminds me of playing tapes when I was little. I loved Heart and Joan Jett, Jackson Browne and Abba. I have a picture in my mind of just sitting and listening to this song and thinking Heart sounded so cool. What does this song remind you of?

And this is how I rolled during the holidays. This was always set up at my grandma's. That Santa I am holding sang and shook his booty. We loved it. I wonder what became of the lit up Christmas tree picture on the wall. I would love to have it now.

I like to put things on my refrigerator or bulletin board. These magnets from inkjet are just the ticket. They are an original design. You can find magnets, badges, cards, and pocket mirrors here, I like the simple colors and design.
This print from Studio Lyon caught my eye. The artist works with lots of different mediums, but I like the works in ink, including this one and others like it.
I don't know how I came across ialuna, but I like it. She makes these beautiful and useful bookmarks and moneyclips. She also has a blog listed (as most of these shops do) on her profile, go and visit. These are so inexpensive for a beautiful handmade gift, these might be part of the "friend" gift for this Christmas, since we are all usually reading the same book.
Is there anything in particular you want me to look for? Let me know.

We had a lot of fun. The weather wasn't too cold, the kids tricked for plenty of treats, they crashed to sleep. Today is a little emotional and manic but that will pass.
