Day 86…

In Daily Musings on March 26, 2012 at 9:20 am

 Happy Monday to you! It’s was a rainy and chilly weekend, that’s what you get for a freaky 85 degrees in March on Friday.  Everyone was stripped naked, I saw some strange sights which burned my eyes!!!  I wonder who has a cold right now?  And yes, we are already 86 days into the new year!  Hasn’t time gone by fast?  Have you accomplished any of your new year resolutions or promises to yourself? So far I’m quite happy with myself, I’m a little behind, but I’m not going to be too hard on myself and neither should you, after all it’s only March.  I did get a lot done this weekend though.  I started my spring blossom pin collection (more colours to come), and completed a couple of orders for my iPad 2 case ( go to www.maylana.com to view item).  Blooming Flower pins will be available  on the website very soon.

I’m really pleased with my 2 volume Alice Walker book, which I purchased at Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe .  This volume contains The Colour Purple and The Temple of My Familiar, 2 books I’ve wanted to reread for some time; what better way then to read them in a beautifully bound edition.

The other 2 books Chanel and Model, were purchased at Kultura Second Hand Books & Sort of Vintage Clothing (love that title).  I have a passion for fashion books, vintage and otherwise. Kultura is a quaint little shop where you have no idea what surprises are going to be in store for you, if you love second-hand book stores, you’ll love this little gem.  I found a little surprise when I opened a book and found this very old, torn postcard inside: 

A lover's note

It reads: To Caulor, my fiery latin matator ami. OOH-LA-LA! Am having a most delightful time here in surf country and am never coming home.  How romantic! at least I hope it’s romantic, that last line ” and am never coming home” could mean a couple of things, but since I’m an Aquarian, I’ll take the romantic route.

 

I also love Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe.  Kramerbooks is a store you can spend the whole day in. it’s a bookstore, restaurant and bar.  Really nice food for Sunday brunch and has a fantastic book selection.   They are a little overpriced, but you can find some hard to come by titles there.  I grabbed the Alice Walker book for $22, which wasn’t bad, plus it was the only copy, and it was mine!!!

Here's Cherkita in Kramerbooks reading "How To Be Black" I haven't researched this book, nor do I know who the target audience is, so I will withhold comment. I thought it was a great photo op. Do you get the irony?

 I didn’t get a chance to go down to the Tidal Basin to take photos of the cherry blossoms, it was too  chilly for me, plus I was busy with my own crochet blossoms.  Only God knows what condition they’re in after the rain.  If the weather warms up again soon, I’d like to take a trip down there before they all disappear. 

Here’s my song of the day:

I love this song!!!

 I’d like to wish you all a fabulous and blessed Monday, don’t get too stressed, before you know it, Friday will be here and it’ll be the weekend all over again.

Bye Dahhlings!

  1. I’ve read “Model: The Ugly Business of Beautiful Women” before. The book’s as long as a dictionary but it’s a very interesting read.

    And yes, the weather was freakishly warm these past few weeks, but now that the weather’s more seasonably appropriate again I’m missing the summerlike heat! I thought I’d retire my sweaters and heater for the season, bummer.

    • Hi Dienna:

      When I picked up the book “Model” just reading the inside flap peaked my interest. You’re right it does seem as long as a dictionary, I’ll let you know what I think. We were at freezing this morning, I know last week was too good to be true!

      • “We were at freezing this morning, I know last week was too good to be true!”

        To go from being jacket-free and opening windows to puffy coats and heaters is ridiculous!

  2. I have a passion for fashion books too. I’ve got Chanel but not Model. I’ll look into this. By the way, I love your flower pins. How much do you sell this for? do you have a site?

  3. whoopsie! I found your site. never mind. I am browsing it right now. thanks dear

  4. Oh my goody, I love everything I saw but theres one that I want to buy but its sold out — Cream & Black. Is there a way you can make me one? I really want it!!!! Let me know
