fun & quirky saturday finds.

ooh, it feels like snow in my area (no!) well, not that i'm panicking but i'm let's shall we say, just not ready for that quite yet. but alas, it is not in my hands right? so if it comes, i'll get out, walk, take some photos and suck it up and enjoy the heck out of it ;) that said, i wanted to share some fun, bright, quirky finds i've noticed or been loving as of late....

how quirky and fun is this men's bowler hat guy tie? so fun that's what i say. find it here at the amazing hand me downs etsy site. great christmas idea, no?
another fun artist i'm loving these days is megan whitmarsh (who says she uses "the visual noise of her youth" as inspiration, whoah, i love that!). she hand silk screens abstract forms and shapes and color onto rag paper then addd embroidered detail. i love the textural element to her work and the use of line. oh, the use of line!

and for more autumn/winter fun, i'm enjoying the look of these quirky/flirty tribal tights, offered up by yet another great etsy site find, qoo qoo fashion. i love color blocking them, as shown here, with a vibrant dress or long top, really a fun boost on a grey day.

off to sip delicious coffee, be happy in the fact that my son is home from college and sleeping away in his room, catch up on some reading for class and watch for the first snow flakes (in october?) and just plain go with it. ;) i hope you are enjoying the start to your day too! enjoy...

The tie is pretty cute and appropriate for casual wear. I wonder if it comes in more colors and textures, since I would personally like one that's not so wooly :)
