Fantastical Friday: Mom’s B-day

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

So this week is a little different. My mother’s birthday is October 4th & thought it might be cool to talk about my process of finding the right gifts for people. First, it’s important to know the people we buy for, I mean really know what they like. In the case of my mother, she loves dinosaurs. Documentaries, movies, etc, if it’s about the dinos it was made for her, LOL. She doesn’t like comforters, so getting her a dinosaur comforter is out of the question despite the change in weather around her big day. On the other hand, I know she doesn’t get out to the theaters, like ever, so she didn’t go see Jurassic World. I haven’t seen it either, which is really unimportant to this discussion, but she is totally in love with the series, so getting her a copy is the perfect solution to the gift problem. She doesn’t have a blu ray, but she does have a DVD player. With all of this in mind, I went to the local Walmart, searched around & managed to uncover a couple of copies on DVD. Couldn’t get it online because she would see the package in the mail & ask about it, LOL. Mom doesn’t read my blog on any kind of regular basis, being a daily mail addict, working 5 days a week, still having one teenage child & numerous local grandchildren, she really has limited personal time to find spoilers on the internet (side note: she doesn’t have facebook, twitter or G+ which covers all of the major social sites I promote my blog on, LOL).

Watermelon Wednesday: A Cute Costume

Watermelon Wednesday

After my aforementioned vampire phase I frequently went with another classic, the witch. It tends to be an easy costume, even when on a budget, but like many others it can be fancy or embellished & become an expensive undertaking. I suppose it’s true that it can be a lazy costume, my mother has accused me of such on previous Halloweens. Let’s face it though, when it comes down to having a great costume or plenty of candy for trick-or-treaters, the kids win every time. 😀 Today’s costume was found while browsing Pink Basis & is certainly not the most inexpensive version of the theme, but it is nicely whimsical & definitely something I would wear. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Sandra Oh

Magnificent Monday

Perhaps best known for her role as Dr. Christina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy, she had numerous appearances in a variety of popular shows prior to that character. While in high school she founded an environmental club, but I am a little uncertain of her environmental activities since then. It is possible, even likely, that she contributes to environmental charities, as many of us do, without any thought of recognition for the activity.

Sandra has elegant taste in jewelry & I looked around for a variety of items to fit into my interpretation of her style. I found some earrings, necklaces & bracelets at Billy the Tree that remind me of her. This simple wishlist is definitely one I will be referring to in the near future for my own acquisitions, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 😉

Watermelon Wednesday: Little Bit Punk

Watermelon Wednesday

When I was a kid & into my teens (doubtless a little over a decade of my life) I went through a vampire phase. I’m not talking about shiny vamps, I’m talking about Anne Rice & The Masquerade. Due to this I was a vampire every Halloween for many years, I even went all out when I was 17 & went as Armand (from The Vampire Chronicles). Only 1 crappy picture was taken that night & it isn’t full body, not sure where it is & no digital copy exists. Anyway, that was a digression, LOL. The shoes I found at OASAP would go well with any dark or punk style outfit or costume. I’m seriously considering getting myself a pair when the finances become more available for random frivolous purchases, LOL.

Magnificent Monday: Miiko Taka

Magnificent Monday

In my youth I read Shogun, which sparked an early fascination with the Japanese culture. Later I discovered the mini-series, which was amazingly true to the books. Kiri-san was played by Miiko Taka, who may not have been in many productions, but she still had a large impact on early me. As a Japanese American living through WWII, she & her family suffered through the indignity of a relocation camp for the duration of the war. Far too many have gone through the fear & uncertainty associated with forced relocation.

While her taste in earrings is beautiful, I’ve decided to focus more on Asian style hair pins. Not that I have seen many images of her, outside of movies, when she is using them, but I believe this is the first Asian I have honored on a Magnificent Monday, so I am going with more of a cultural item. Today’s selections were found at Amazon.com & I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed finding them. 😉
