I would LOVE to have a retro kitchen with colorful appliances like these. (The blue and the green are my FAVORITES!) But, alas, I have to make due with what I have. So, I add little touches here and there to keep my home happy and bright. (I'm working on sewing a polka-dotted kitchen curtain out of a way-too-hard set of sheets I bought.)
I also got these cuties on etsy the other day:

So, I found out that Ball Jars released limited edition Blue Mason Jars and I went on a mission to find them. Blue is one of my favorite colors so I had to have these. And, since they're limited edition, I had to jump on it fast. I know I'm not the only mason jar lover out there (hello, all of Brooklyn). So, SCORE! I got 'em here. They are much darker than they appear on the website (which I'm happy about). I didn't want the washed-out effect you can get with paint.
This isn't the only area where I'm more retro than modern (though, at this point they are one in the same). I have always had a love of ankle-straps and maryjanes. I even remember buying maryjane shoes when I was in grade school. I dunno what it is but I just really like them. I have to work on getting some more colors but the practical (read: boring) side of me justifies shoes that are black or grey or brown because they "go with everything". I gotta get over that.
No, I don't normally take pictures of my shoes. I was cleaning out my closet and decided to snap a pic when I realized just how many of my shoes look the same. What can I say? I'm consistent!
And, it doesn't stop there, I love a-line dresses and cardigans and black liquid eyeliner. Okay, enough about my mistaken birth year, I also have a little card I came up with.
It's not really new. The saying is, but the camera is more "adjusted". My original holga cameras are a bit too high to fit into the envelope comfortably, so I decided to flatten the lens part a bit. I also realized that I didn't have anything purple in my shop so I had to change that stat.
March is almost over and I'm still waiting for it to "go out like a lamb". I think most people are! I mean, snow and freezing temps have made it quite the lion. (I could get really cheesy here, but I will refrain.)
Here's to April showers and, even better, May flowers! WOOT WOOT! I'll be back soon with some more shares and a cute tutorial on something you might just be able to put inside say... a mason jar? LOL.
