I came home a day earlier from my honey moon and had a good day of mobbing about looking for cute things with the hasbeen. We started the morning at Sakura gifts on 10th v. They have some of the cutest treasures there:

ASDJSAKDJS. The adorable here makes my eyes ooze. I love the ones on top with soft paint applied. I wanted one but…they are a little expensive so Ben suggested I save up for one. The one at the bottom with the kimono on also has my eye.

In the sometime near future I am about to go all kindsa crazy and get my dish-ware on here.

The colors and the characters are what sucker me.

I picked up these bags awhile ago to put my moleskin in and pens. They fit perfectly.

I picked up some oragami paper (and got some for a wedding gift :D) in hopes of recreating this darling dangling paper thing serene made.

This is one that I made prior with

the pages of these books. I am thinking about framing a couple of these book covers because they please my eye. The books are donated to Sakura and the proceeds go to different churches around Sacramento. They sell for about 50 cents to a buck or so. A cheap way to practice dangle paper darling or to create it. I personally really dig the color of the paper in those books. It has that old book smell and look.

When you’re all pooped out from the adorable at Sakura I would suggest walking about 5 steps to get a snow cone.

THEY ARE AS BIG AS YOUR HEAD.

After that we went to thrift town on El camino. I really wanted to turn this Ice bucket into and ashtray but remembered I has no more room for such pleasantries so I opted for a tin.

I like rocking chairs a whole lot.

I dont know if I would personally use this lamp but it did make my head snap…so I thought of sharing it with you kind folk.

My loves (and apologies for the terrible pictures. Bear with me…I am bound to get decent). That little coffee pot thing has the cutest little detail and that seems to be the case for most older kitchen utensils. I always keep my eye out for them and table cloths.

Words of wisdom. After my husband agreed with this sign he laughed and pointed out that there is a lot of different font action going on. Meh.
All in all the last day of the honeymoon turned out pretty fun. I had to get pulled away from the thrift store because dude was exhausted from looking at crap. It was good to have him around though…because I would have probably bought that ridiculous sign just to show him it.
