ADDING SOME TEXTURE TO YOUR HOME ... AFRICAN JUJU HATS

walls aren't just for hanging photos or posters, but are an excellent backdrop for adding a bit of texture to your home.  and i love the idea of hanging african juju hats on the wall in a small collection or a large one centered above a bed as a statement piece.

in case you didn't know, here's a little bit of info about african juju hats ...
they are african headresses made from bird feathers and are traditionally worn by village chiefs in the cameroon region of central africa. the base of each hat is made of rafia and the feathers are sewn in creating a huge artistic circle to perfectly adorn the head or a wall in your home.

gorgeous, right?

EAT ... WEAR ... MAKE ... LOVE ...

today's dream would be to sit on that mid century inspired sofa while accessorizing myself with that tiro tiro polis necklace.  of course i would be enjoying those banana chocolate chip baked donuts with caramel pecan glaze ... probably on my third by now, while trying to keep my sticky fingers from messing up the sofa. and if i could force myself to put the donuts down, i would attempt to knit up that venus cowl just in time for cooler days.

what's your daydream?
are you hoping to eat, wear, make, or love something (or someone) new?

AT THE MOMENT ...

a stylish little lady
at the moment ...

i am wearing another one of these.
the dog is going crazy at the back door because a rabbit has decided to taunt her to no end.
i am eating chips ... actually i am on my second bowl of chips.
ordering some temporary tattoos for a friend's birthday. she wants a tattoo so this will help her decide what (and where) to put it.
listening to nina simone while ordering said tattoos and eating before mentioned chips.
relieved that work is done ... the kitchen is clean ... and the plants have been watered too.
hearing drip drops of rain against the window signaling a storm is on the way.
enjoying the fact that even though this day was an uneventful one, it was a good one nonetheless.

what about you?
what's happening at the moment ...?
