Ode to the Tilt-A-Whirl...

I'm usually not one for outright campy stuff...but sometimes if it's so over-the-top kitschy, I'm hooked.

This explains my long-standing love for the Tilt-A-Whirl....have just always loved this ride. And who can resist coasting around a man-made lake in a giant white swan or watching the random 3-year-old scream (I think a happy scream?) on the swing ride.

Recently went on a little family outing to this old-school amusement park just outside of Denver...really feels like you are out at some random State Fair, minus the colorful carnival folks that usually run these things. That day we just got a bunch of disinterested teenagers making sure we were seat belt compliant and wouldn't spit off the ferris wheel.

Nonetheless...was fun to see my 8yo DS and 4 yo DD have a blast, while their geeky mom was taking close-ups of the rides.
And in case you are also fascinated by the Tilt-A-Whirl...check out Wikipedia for interesting random facts about the best ride ever.

A juried site, craft gawker is truly eye candy for anyone interested in artisan crafts, great photography, or both.

I'm happy to say the two items above (from my lime green modern shop) were recently accepted for viewing here:

My Pink Tutu Observation....

Sometimes an observation hits me that just makes me laugh and this is one of them.

I don't believe my need for minimalism has been passed down to my is her adorable Halloween costume that she chose from many (MANY) tutu choices that I had hearted for her.

But the kicker is she wanted to know if she could also wear a pink shirt and get pink sparkly shoes for this ensemble. To her, well, more is more.

Maybe I need to loosen my grip for the austere and have a pink tutu day every once in awhile.

Thank you Sweetie Pie Tutus for this adorable fairy princess set that my DD simply loves to death. See her great shop here:
