rain naps ... give-away™


don't you
just love
summer rain?
i never
really
experienced
summer rain
until
i moved
to
the east coast.
nothing like
taking a nap
as the cool
breeze
from
the rain
comes through
the window
(and plenty of
droplets!).
makes me
think of
that great
cowboy junkies
song,
southern rain.

this weekend
i took a break
from this:

to enjoy this:


its monday
and i am
oh so tired
after picking up
grub in
the wee hours
of the morning
from union station.
i can't wait
until my
comprehensive
exam is
over
and
i can join grub
on
weekend jaunts
to NYC
for food and art
but
until then
i will have to
content myself
with
excursions
to
value village
and
frozen tofu
pot pies
while
i study.

but enough
dreariness...
hope about
the
the great
monday give-away™
.

i think it will
soon be time
to dig into
the next level
of give-away™
items...
yep,
the things
i am not quite
ready to part with...
but
as my favorite song
says
everything must go!
okay,
maybe not
everything...

please check
the great monday
give-away™ guidelines

before you claim
an item!

i am still broke,
so
please
pay
shipping
.
shipping is
usually
under $3
within
the usa.

today's give-away™:

1. vintage dress with jacket taken

a cute summer dress
with a little jacket.
tag says
Act 1
New York

not sure of the era
or vintage.
size small=
~30-32 bust
~24-26 waist
=tiny!

2. mod vintage jumper taken

once upon a time
i was all about
skorts.
all about speeding
around town in them
on my raspberry schwin.
now i want to cover
my legs
and my racing bike
gets up hills better...
but you
are ready for this...
for somersaults
on the lawn
and something
to wear over
your suit
from the beach.
you want this,
really you do.

3. badtz maru zipper pouch taken

pouch is
approximately
8 x 11"
yep,
i can't resist
a bad ass penquin.
who could?
i used it for maps.
for what can you use it?

hope there's
something
you like!
great monday give-away™.
i look forward to
your postcards.


until tomorrow...

no more summer rain... all my major plans get washed away by the rain :(

A COLLAGE A DAY said...

I once lived in an old farm house in Eastern Kentucky. It had a tin roof and when it rained I always fell asleep listening to the applause of water on its surface.

I noticed some wonderful fabric poking out from underneath your mountain of text books....is that your skirt? Love the colours.

bugheart said...

ah- i had
no idea
the dress/jacket
would be
so popular!
distar-
i don't like a lot
of summer rain
because
my caterpillars
get flooded out!
r.- rain
on a tin roof
sounds amazing...
kylie-

of my vested
gentress skirts!
