Homeward Bound

I’ve spent the better part of my time in the Edmonton International Airport (that’s right, my month long sojourn in Edmonton is over but I had a major disaster on the way home that involved a flight delayed for 90 minutes, the possibility of an overnight stint in Minneapolis and me galloping at full speed through a crowded airport to make my connection – which I did and they had wifi on the plane so I’m actually blogging at 30,000 feet right now) falling in love with this etsy store

I love love love so many of the items up for grabs here - like this!




I find myself really drawn to Victorian images and themes lately.






And while I was in Vancouver I spent like an hour in the Fluevog shoe, excitedly trying the shoes of my dreams – the Griffith Park. If it’s the last thing I do, I will own a pair of these bad boys.

While you were trying on the Griffith Park in Vancouver I was doing the same in Seattle! Ultimately decided they didn't actually do as much for me as I had hoped/feared, so I shall not betray my beloved Silverlakes. But I'd love to see you stalking the streets in them . . .

Those boots Rock !!! I Love how the wedge heel curves. I also LOVE Victorian fashion and dolls. You should check out the Victorian Trading Co. I LOVE their catalog and online shop. I have bought tons of art pieces(framed prints) and Creepy Victorian dolls from there. Even some jewelry. I Love Victorian Dolls, The creepier the better lol.

I got a Betsey Johnson chintz watch from there and a Victorian funeral brooch and a really cool pin with a crown. Here is a link

Flight delay often upset me especially when I can't wait to reach my destination! Hope everything is well at the end!
