Dear Mr. Watson

It’s your granddaughter here. Today would have been your 69th birthday. My heart aches knowing that I never got to meet you, hug you, or talk to you. I hear about you all the time and how rad you were. I have a feeling if you were here you’d teach me to play guitar. You’d teach me to fish, how to write poetry, and how to fight. I remember a story I’ve heard multiple times. Your daughter Dana, my aunt, was in a physical fight with another girl. She ran inside crying to you and you told her to go back out there and kick her ass. It makes me laugh every time! I would give anything to hear you play guitar or recite your poems to me. You would’ve been the best grandpa on the block. Happy birthday, old man. I can’t wait to meet you someday.

 

Love forever and always,
Casey

16 Prints

So I’m convinced I’ve found the coolest website ever. Society6.com allows artists to sell their pieces online (most of themĀ are very affordable).

Almost every piece of art can be converted into any of the following: prints, stationary, iPhone cases, iPadĀ & iPod covers, laptop skins, hoodies, and t-shirts

I chose sixteen of my favorite prints to share with you. I want them all! AND they’re all under $20.00!

A Cheap Peek

Everyone who is close to me knows just how obsessed I am with clothes and shoes. It’s an issue. BUT, I like to think it’s not because over half of my wardrobe is second hand. I’d rather buy from a thrift store or garage sale before I’d ever step foot in the mall because I’m THAT cheap.

If you haven’t thrifted before, try it! It’s exciting because you never (ever) know what to expect. AND, you won’t be broke when you’re done.

Happy Thriftin’! (:

SELLING MY POLAROID

It’s taken me awhile to make this decision but I’ve finally chosen to sell my Polaroid One Step camera. I’ve only had it for a few months and although I love its nostalgia I simply don’t use it enough. It is in perfect working condition. All it requires is some film which can be purchased here. I originally purchased it off of Amazon.com for $80.00 (with film). It has a few scratches here and there but overall the condition is good. I’m asking $70 for it but I will definitely be willing to negotiate. I will also be listing it on Ebay, Amazon, and Craigslist so if you are at all interested, let me know!
