You've Got Love Technique...

I got a package yesterday...

From Ms. Fanciful Twist...It was not a surprise per se, because I knew it was coming...but this Trader Joe shopping tote is so much more amazing in person! And included with the bag in the package (which was wrapped in the sweetest polka-dot tissue paper) was the pinkie little silhouette card...

Oh this woman is horribly talented...hmmm...seriously talented (no...whimsical, but not too serious)

wonderfully talented!







I am wondering who they got to design this? I am also noticing (during my recent trip to The Valley especially) that so many things in the stores are mimicking blogs...I was telling my mom after visiting Anthropologie,

"it's like being in some one's blog!"

And really, what's the best side of this bag? The pirate ship with a little diver diving off of it? Or the rooster in the car? Simply divine...

Now, I am really wanting to jet down to grocery shop...

I'm off for the busy day...I know it's going to be a great day, as I danced and sang to the top of the mountain (ok, glorified hill...but I still walk up it twice...) in my neighborhood during my morning walk (I felt like an alley cat on a fence, luckily I have a good voice, although I was a little breathless at that point, poor neighbors) to Spaceaged Lovesong (Flock of Seagulls)

I Have Love Technique...

which brought back many happy memories of the 80's (I'm and 80's girl through and through...most of my friends are, in fact, I have a friend that recently told me she got satellite radio just to listen to the 80's station...right T?) and following that song was The Sensual World (Kate Bush) and am wondering if the universe is trying to tell me something? I had to rush home and decide if I wanted to smoke a cigarette or take a cold shower...

At least I didn't get a boot thrown at me...

I've noticed the same "life imitating blog" thing going on, too. I mean, major magazines and marketing companies are now soliciting popular bloggers to test out their products, and of course, to report on them on their blogs. Strange...
