The Clothing Line

Hello there!
I just got back home a little while ago from running some early morning errands with my sweetie downtown. On our way back home we couldn't help but stop to say hello to our friend Heather who owns a consignment/new items store called The Clothing Line. Currently she has no facebook page or website but I think they may be in the works. Anyhow she has a great selection of old and new items. Including but not limited to clothing, accessories, gifts and jewelry. Also men's clothing guys! A few weeks back at her store I came across a lovely vintage 60's sleeveless dress with large blue roses on it. Lucky for me it fit perfect and I plan to wear it to an upcoming Spring wedding. Well as it would be today I scored another dress from her shop in the same style which is pictured below. I love it so much and can't wait to wear it as soon as this weather warms up! Thanks Heather for being one of my favorite shops in town! So if you live local or even if you don't and want to make the trip to her shop it is well worth it. You never know what treasure you'll find! Happy Saturday kiddos! xoxo, Littlest

James Kochalka

Hello All!
A little while back I posted about our Annual Oscar Party. The talented James Kochalka our friend also wrote about it on his daily strip American Elf. Today he posted about the party on his blog with a lovely picture of his family taken by yours truly. Check it out here. If you don't know much about James Kochalka check out the Seven Days arts paper's story on him a couple of weeks ago where they mention he was appointed Vermont's first cartoonist laureate.

Snow Day!

Hi all,
So today I had the day off and thankfully so. It has been snowing since yesterday and finally slowed down this afternoon. The storm is the 5th biggest in Vermont history. I was planning to get some things done at home today which I did but I couldn't resist an adventure to walk in to town while it wasn't snowing and get myself a hot chocolate at a favorite locally owned coffee shop. Which by the way was one of the few places open and hopping with business. All the retail businesses were closed and Church Street was oh so quiet except for the occasional sleds or cross countries skiers. I took a few pictures on my street and on my porch. The second picture is looking down my front stairs from the porch. The snow was so high before it got shoveled! The walk into town took a bit longer as the sidewalks were not plowed and unwalkable so the road it was. Despite so much snow it was pretty "warm" out and with all my layers I was toasty and enjoyed the exercise. So much snow also meant sunglasses. So bright out! I hope you all had a good Monday!
Cheers, Littlest

Our Annual Oscar Party 2011

Drawing taken from American Elf by James Kochalka (
Hi all!
Well it's been another while since my last post. David and I had our annual Oscar Party last Sunday and I have to say this may have been the best one yet. A great turn out! Everyone looked amazing. This year we hosted the Oscar party at Parima in their Lounge room which was cozy and the perfect spot. We had fun decorating the room beforehand but the space it self didn't require much prepping. The room already had a projector and screen set up so we could air the Oscars loud and large. Our guests got all dolled up as is a requirement for the Oscars and they did not disappoint. I had set up a red carpet and was taking pictures of guest as they arrived. Pretty soon it was getting so crowded I couldn't get red carpet shots anymore. A sign of a good turn out for sure.

I was pleased with most of the awards although I was kind of surprised The King's Speech won. Not because it wasn't a good movie or that I didn't enjoy it. I just thought of the other films I saw like The Fighter or Winter's Bone or even Black Swan would win. I thought Winter's Bone was so powerful and real. The Fighter well acted and interesting. Black Swan visually moving and well done although not my favorite. That being said Natalie Portman did some of her best acting I think and I'm happy she won.

Here are just some of the many pictures I took that night. Also our friends James Kochalka and Amy King came with their boys. James wrote about the party in his daily strip American Elf. Thanks James! Thanks again to all our friends who got all dressed up and came out to the Oscars! We had a great time and look forward to next year!
