 My life.

 The gorgeous floor at work.

When you order silverware on Etsy, sometimes it comes wrapped in SUPER old newspaper...

Juice, Emmett, and mocs.

Two beers, one cup...

Styles had a habit of sleeping in Emmett's crate. Who can blame him? It has a orthopedic pad in it! Sometimes Emmett gets really tired and climbs in to take a nap with him. They don't really get along otherwise, but when I see them sharing the crate it melts my heart.

Lakeside Farms Antique Fair

 We went to Lakeside Farms on Sunday to browse the farm stand and the antiques fair they were having.

 We walked away with this cast iron Uncle Sam bank.

Uncle Sam's Grave

 Last weekend we went to Oakwood Cemetery in Troy NY to do research for Halloween part props, and found many super old gravestones.

 Did I mention that the Oakwood Cemetery is the resting place of the man that the character Uncle Sam was based on?

 Oakwood Cemetery also has an incredible view...

...and an amazing groundskeeper's office. I wish I could live in this building, it's so beautiful. On the other side of this building you can see the same view as above, a great spot to watch sunsets.

 Co-napping in the crate.

My new target mocs.

 Coconut oil infused hair, capped for the night so it can work it's magic while I sleep.
