Book Shots: All about the wonders of chemistry

8 Jul

I found this really neat book thrifting the other day about chemistry. It has hilarious and cute illustrations about science.

I dont understand anything about it just that I like the way it looks!

Rose and Ben’s Christmas Decor.

24 Dec

Here is me and Ben’s attempt at an Alexander Girard inspired christmas tree. After much stalling and frustratin’ myself over the right kinda paper, and the colors, buh, I decided that it isn’t exactly what I would have liked it to look like…but maybe next year we will refine! That’s a great thing about Christmas…it comes again next year. So I have come to comfort myself in saying that each year is another opportunity to make it better. That’s pretty optimistic right? YUP. YUP. That’s what I am trying to be about dear Mimomito. We shall see how long that lasts.

GIT’R’DONE: Alexander Girard’s paper girl garland

11 Dec

Paper+Dolls+Wall+Art+by+Alexander+Girard+for+Urban+OutfittersHere is an easy holiday garland you can make out of Girard’s popular paper girl design.

DSC_0047First get your image to the size you like and print it out on printer paper. Not too small – because it’ll be tough to cut.
I decided to go with 5 inches. Don’t worry if you get it a lil’ pixelated on the print-out –  iz just going to be used as a stencil.

DSC_0048Cut out the image, or slice out using an X-acto knife.

DSC_0055Trace the image onto the back of the paper of your choice. Wrapping paper, craft paper, whatever. Just make sure it’s a little bit taller than your tracing (in my case, approximately 7″) and as long as you want your garland to be, around 20-30″ unless your paper is so thick that it would be difficult to cut through.

Around town: St. Patricks thriftstore

20 Sep


I recently went to St. Patricks on Franklin. St. Patricks is a little rustic looking but great for digging and finding a little piece of history that is sweet to your heart.

I really want one of these old timey t.v’s so’s I can put another t.v on it. I think it would be eye pleasing and hopefully make me laugh a little everyonce in awhile.


Look at the fabirc on that couch!


I lurve long coffee tables! Also peep that rad looking owl wall sculpture.


Me and Ben recently got a bunch of kitchen stuff from our wedding registry. When I see stuff like this it makes me wish we were somehow able to register on craigslist or thriftstores (I bet that sounds terrible). I am thinking if this guy didnt work he would look just as great with a durble and tiny plant inside him.


Now we move onto my new obsession sweet book covers.
