My photo
i live the simple life so to speak, but a bit of an eccentric one. i have an extensive vintage my little pony collection and shelves of only the geekiest lunch boxes around. nerd? perhaps. really i love to collect anything vintage and i enjoy being a big kid entirely too much. i love to sew and make cute things. i am vegetarian; i love to cook and bake. i try and be conscious of the decisions i make in this life. i recycle. i reuse. i compost. i try to live as plastic free as possible. hippy? no. hippies never looked this good in a 50's dress and high heels.

masters of the universe

as it turns out, matthew no longer qualifies to be in the twenty seven forever club. this is because today he turned twenty eight! we celebrated his birthday yesterday, due to it being family day long weekend and all. me and madeleine got him 'He-man and the Masters of the Universe' season one, volume one, and we also got him...

...for our lunch box collection.

also, we tried taking madeleine for a sled ride yesterday, which she was not having absolutely anything to do with...we got a few good videos of her crying her face off and that is about it. i think we would have been okay, but maddie's fear of dogs took over the outing when we passed a house with a dog who followed us all the way down the length of his fence and barked his head off at us. needless to say, madeleine was hysterical. maybe next time.

macau pony

this beauty arrived for me at my house today. i don't know what it is about different country variations, but i think they are so interesting. i am really excited to add her to my collection. the region of Macau has been known to produce the most unusual alternate versions of some of the earliest well-known ponies and they are a bit more rare.
