I live in Sparkletown

I love it when a holiday weekend sneaks up on me and I get an extra day to do what I want!  I hope those in the states enjoyed the time off.  The weather was crap except for Saturday which was beautifully sunny.  Here are some highlights from my world.
 I made this case over the weekend and I love it loads more that my first try.
 I made some jewelry presents this weekend too.
I hung out with Cristi and we did some thrift shopping.  I rescued these clowns that looked like they were in a fire.  I have plans for these little creeps!
 I wish this pink dresser could have come home with me but at the risk of Chris moving out, not worth it.
 Cristi scored a designer top and beads for under $10.  I had to snap a photo of these twins, they were so sweet and adorable and friendly!

My bag of clowns and this!
 Lamp from Costa Rica, clown sitting guard.
Cristi gave me this cute wallet obviously Peetee inspired!
All this shopping sure made us hungry, so french pastries were in order.  I'll save the rest for later as I see 8 am fast approaching.  What have I missed in our blogging world?  Dare I say my computer hasn't been on all weekend? Nope not at all and boy did I need that break!  Can't wait to see what I've missed.

Those clowns are creepy cute. I do love the lamp though. Very cute. I used to make phone cases for my mom and myself a while ago. It was fun but could get very expensive.

What a fab weekend, loads of fun and great company! The phone case is a triumph & you look adorable in your poncho and mini dress.
Those twins are too cute.
Not feeling the love for those clowns but maybe you'll persuade me otherwise when I see what you have planned for them.
Love Peetee's twin and Cristi is a splendid model for Kiss Me Kitty!
Love you! xxxxxx

Clowns have never bothered me but I admit those are a bit creepy. I'm interested in what you'll do with them

I love that lamp and your bag of clowns made me laugh. I've always loved clowns but Mark absolutely hates them. I remember when we were busking on La Rambla back in '99 there was a guy doing a turn in front of the cafe crowds as a clown and one night he snuck up on Mark with a hooter (that was part of his show)and Mark almost took him out with his guitar, needless to say he never bothered us again. Sparkletown looks like an awesome place to live in, I wish there was a bit more sparkle around here :)
You look fab in your poncho ensemble & I think I may have said this once or twice already but it bears repeating, KMK leggings RULE!
...xXx

You are gorgeous, but clowns don't do it for me I'm afraid! In fact, I have a bit of clown phobia but I do like to see them all in a bag! I want to see what you make with them.
Does anyone rock a poncho quite lie you? I think not.
xxxxxxxxxx

That is one Glam-tastic phone case! I'm curious to see what you do with the clowns (which kind of creep me out). The lamp is very cool - I would have snapped that up too.

freckleface said...

You certainly do live in Sparkletown! What a place. I love your phone case. How perfect to have a weekend away from the tyranny of the computer. And spending time girlfriends is good for the soul. Those cakes look to die for! Did you eat them all? xxx

Helga! said...

Ugh, enough of the clowns!!! Creepy.
You are such a SPUNKTASM!!!! Looking so fine!
The Peetee inspired wallet is to die for! And I am inspired by your camra cover job, as I just got a new phone and it needs some work!!!
Hurrah for good times and long weekends! We've got one this weekend!
Love you!XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I want to live in sparkletown! As long as the clowns aren't there. Fabulously creepy. What have you got in store?! The pink drawers are rather amazing! Shame Chris would go mad! Could you sneak those in the house somewhere?! Loves you! Xxxxxxx

Joni James said...

It's a whole mess of loveliness in here! Good to read about you my dear. I miss all the stylish activities in styleblogland but a good dose of Kristacolor is a gallon of satisfaction!

Camelia Crinoline said...

The clowns are so creepy. Their faces look so wrong. I love your beautiful, bright leggings and the record player in the pink case.

Bohemian vanity said...

Oh sweet the clowns are a little scary, but have gone to a wonderful home.
Love the poncho its fabulous over the polka-dot dress....you look so happy having playtime op-shopping.
Yay a parcel of happiness made its way to you.....I was going to tell you, then decided a surprise was better.
love V

Fantastic shop, reading the comments above I'm the only one who find your clowns adorable? The colours are so pretty and bright, probabily I love them because my first doll was a baby clown and I didn't know nothing about Stephen King's It or John Wayne Gacy (the serial killer often dressed up) at that time..I like the little pink record player,is it a toy? The doll is cute too and the pink dresser is lovely, especially with all the pastel stuff on! The lamp is amazing too and I like your beautiful outfit!That poncho is great!
