over the weekend kelly and i headed over to the girlie show, which was really nothing short of incredible. i kind of wish i had planned better (kelly — damn her — inspires that) so i could have gotten my christmas shopping out of the way.
i'm also really wishing i'd at least picked up a print of the top robot man. i loved every single piece from this artist.

ok so don't spoil project runway because i am two episodes behind. and i need to believe in my heart that carol hannah and logan made it to the very end so they could make thousands of babies.
but i am excited to come across carol hannah's etsy shop because i love this dress. also love this.

you can tell i love letterpress calendars, can't you?
we're nearing the end of the calendar giveaways, so i hope if you haven't yet entered one (and even if you have), you'll definitely do so for this gorgeous print by lizard press.
leave a comment with your e-mail address by end of the day monday, and you'll be in. easy. i'll choose a winner next week.
p.s. don't forget to check out design crush's calendar roundups. AND sign up for the calendar swap while you're over there!
who posted about this awesome skirt yesterday? actually, i saw the post yesterday but since i am 1,500 blog posts behind (seriously), who knows when it was actually written.
ok, i stopped being lazy and looked: helen hearts, of course.
ANYWAY. the skirt. wow.
really excited to launch the second giveaway to coincide with the great calendar swap of oh-ten... from oddball press!
last year i featured their '09 calendar in my calendar roundup and was more than excited to have received it as a gift for christmas. so i was especially delighted to see they were carrying on the same theme this year. i love spying something new every time i look at mine.
now, don't you want to win one?
leave an e-mail address in the comments for a chance. good through the end of the day friday.
and thank you so much, oddball press!

so i really lost track of time, and well, monday's over. ... which means it's time to announce the winner of the first (yes, first) calendar giveaway of the year.
the winner of the 2010 delphine letterpress calendar is...
jenni has her head in the clouds of object of my obsession. congratulations, jenni, and thank you all for participating. stay tuned for more giveaway fun here and at design crush.
and BIG THANKS to delphine for offering such a beautiful calendar. really. beautiful.

my name is caroline.
and i have an addiction to cheap glasses.
thank you and say hello to my newest additions. this time i ordered from zenni optical, which is supposed to be the best in the cheap glasses universe.
and my total cost this time? $35 for both pairs. and that's only because i went all out with the $4.95 anti-reflective coating for both.
i'm pretty sure i'll be obsessed with the top pair since they are so similar to my current pair. i'm more skeptical about the more boring black pair, but i liked the angular detail on the top corners.
i'll let you know.

you have got to be kidding me because this is one amazing necklace. maybe i need to start a blog devoted solely to odd creature jewelry.
i won't lie... i'm already scouring ebay for an owl pendant whose head is just right. and, well, you know i like feathers.
p.s. how excited am i to see an eccentric accessories section on anthro?
this insane watch also comes in silver but WHY ON EARTH would you want to forgo faux gold & emerald?
via helen hearts (really fun, newish-to-me blog. but get this... on top of being adorable and hip, helen is also spending the semester in prague AND is blogging about it.)
i'm really excited to announce the first of several calendar giveaways kelly of design crush and i will be hosting to coincide with our 2010 calendar swap...
... the absolutely GORGEOUS letterpress work of delphine. i'll tell you straight up: you'll be a fool if you don't enter this one right away. all you have to do is leave an e-mail address in the comments by next monday, oct. 19. simple, right?
p.s. have you seen delphine's new digital invitation line? go. go now. well, after you enter the contest.
p.p.s. design crush may or may not offer a giveaway of the same sort. sure wouldn't hurt your chances to enter both.
