10 Things I Love

1.) These vintage cats eyes! This shop on Etsy has 43 pairs of vintage frames for sale. I'd love to have any of these pairs resting on my little nose and improving my vision.
2.) Combining two of my favorite things... surfing and hotdogs! It's like a dream-come-true. This is a recent watercolor painting by artist, Colleen Coover. Wouldn't you like the meet the person who commissioned Colleen to paint this?
3.) Holy moly. These tea cups are spectacular. I'm a tea cup collector. These intricate hand made cups and saucers by Herend sell for about $5,000. Yes. That comma is meant to be there. $5,0000.
4.) Anyone interested in road tripping to Cali just to stay in a wig wam with me? The Wig Wam Motel has been open since the '50's! I love the concept.
5.) Happy birthday, Miss Monroe! Marilyn would have been 85 years old today if she were still around. (This sequin-covered bra sold for $5,000 dollars, by the way!) 
6.) I'm loving Rhianna's long red locks! I'm having red-hair jealousy issues since I tamed down my red hairdo. This color looks gorgeous on her.
7.) This comic brightens my day everytime I see it. Wonder woman clothing, indeed.
8.) I love photos of my beach town from past decades. These pictures were taken in the 50's - 70's at different locations in Ocean City. It's so neat to compare them to how things look now-a-days.
9.) I call this place the 'Conch Shell Graveyard'. It's a hidden spot only a short walk from my house. I like to take Sandi to these marshes to splash around. One day I discovered all of these discarded conch shells and jumped for joy. I think there is a reef off shore made out of leftover shells and they wash up on the shore here after big storms.
10.) This advertisement is running in our local newspapers... recognize that girl? A great cause sponsored by several great businesses and people! If you're in the area on July 2nd, please stop by!
Have a fantastic day, my friends!

I love the "10 Things..." posts! And this one in particular.... I had no idea you liked hot dogs, surfing and collected tea cups! I am so oddly the same, only I collect coffee mugs. Ah :) Hope to see you again soon <3
