Well, kind of.

Just a bit of a forced blog break. I think we’ll all live through this.

Thank you for the emails, comments and vague threats regarding this little unexpected posting hiatus. It’s that same old blog idleness story involving work, travel, computers blowing up and the Apple store fake installing a new hard drive on said computer (which is apparently something that can happen).

The big show I was helping out with wrapped up it’s second season, the talented and oh so patient Laure got sick of me living at her house and then my hard drive exploded. Been working on getting my spanking new (and teeny tiny) MacBook Pro all set up to work it as well as lugging my old mac to the Apple Store yet again for “repairs”. By repairs, I mean, they’ll hold onto it for a day, then return it to me untouched whilst charging lots of cash dollars.

Oh Apple, you know I’ll keep coming back for more even though you treat me so bad. It’s love.

Ok, all that boring crap is out of the way. Let’s post something interesting and stop boring Iggy. It’s a DIY, well kind of, so I didn’t want all this stuff in there confusing everyone and making things overly complicated in the future…


Posts? House? Stuff? I’ve got lots of things needing to get up and clutter this here interweb.

Iggy & Bowie

Pretty sure that our dogs are pretty f*cking adorable.

I’ve been fiddling with Instagram as a way to document the mundane day to day minutiae of working and thrifting for the past month or so. I spend a lot of time out and about (typically as a lone wolf) and am constantly trying to remember what happened, things I saw or stuff that might work for a current project.

Being a rambling storyteller and terrible texter/twitterer,  these quick snap shots have made things a bit easier to quickly communicate or recall all that bizarreness. My old iPhone’s camera is not very nice (but so convenient), so some faux-vignetting and Polaroid style action makes those washed out, overly green and grainy photos seem a tad more intentional.

Some recent snaps over the past week or so…

We visited the most interesting and rigorous remodel around blogland to pick up an eco-pooper (and other bathroom treats) from Justin, AKA the best guy around. Can’t wait to kick off our bathroom remodel and see what he comes up with next. Thank you, again!

New to us Pho restaurant delivers the salted lemonade business. Still dreaming about it…need to make this at home.

Most the week was spent in and out of the vet’s office tending to Bowies clubfoot. I ran into future me and ogled a whale vertebrae. Trying to figure out how to smuggle it home.

Bowie got a tiny cone of shame and officially lost his mind at the vet. After a week of poking and prodding, shots and antibiotics, casts and thermometers in his bum bum – this naughty little dog bit the vet. Apologies animal hospital folks, we must be raising a little demon dog.

Estate sales and vintage shopping were a bit sparse. Still love these 1960’s church fans, not so sure about the lamps.

Ocean. I love you. I miss you.

Obsessed with campaign furniture and snuggling with Iggy. Fight for my love, puppies!

Chilling at the Humane Society getting vaccines. This appears to have been dog torture week.

Palm Springs with the lovely fire cracker Summer and a missed connection with a tasty thrift treat. Yo, 1970’s crazy mirrored credenza? I desperately wanted you and you went to another. My heart is broken.

The über talented Laure posted about this incredibly insane RV fire we saw on our way out to Joshua Tree and super stylist and super person Emily slummed it in the Inland Empire with her giant truck and handsome assistant to pick up a few pieces of furniture. Thanks peeps!

Been busy and fun. But thrift stores? Step up your game. I need some stuff.
