this Sunday has been a very relaxing one..spent the whole weekend doting on my daughter..we had movie night watched Titanic (girly flick!)ate popcorn, drank hot chocolate and laughed and cried (i actually was doing all the crying)..we took time to sketch together she is quite the artist while we listened to some Bowie, Dylan and Lou Reed..i really enjoy these times together..i cherish them!

while sketching i remembered how much i love Japanese animation..i remembered of one I watched as a teenager..she had a great little retro outfit...all the girls did..sailor moon:

i have been slowly collecting retro furniture for my far a have many knick knacks, lamps, dresser and process is slower then i would want it to be but i look for deals..i mean good ones, most of the vintage furniture around can be very pricey especially in L.A. and the pricey does not fit my i love deals it can be date i have not bought anything over $50.

the following are a few pieces i am on the hunt for and and is my focus on next pieces to get:
