A funny little story that goes with this find ... while toting this to the register a man asked me what exactly it was and was surprised to discover its true purpose, since he had thought is was a bird cage!

She has a great blog full of loveliness and inspiration. She also has one of my dream jobs running her own shop, Red Velvet. You can get caught up on the history of Red Velvet here and be inspired by the revamp/reopening here. The shop not only offers amazing home and clothing goods, vintage being the focus, but is part sweetshop too!
I highly recommend checking out the blog for more.

Do a bit of Saturday thrifting at some local spots.
Anxiously awaiting a trip to see this incredible movie on Sunday.
Also, hoping to get all of my Thanksgiving cooking plans in order.
I have decide to take some of my best discoveries and feature one a week in a new post series called Favorite Find.
So, this week is a recent discovery from a local charity shop. The various shades of green in this lovely knit throw caught my eye and the herringbone pattern grabbed my attention, but it was the $0.99 price tag that stole my heart.

I am a big fan of the cupcake and when I found this post, I decided to give the idea a go for Howloween.
I think think the outcome was a hoot!

I NEVER would have thought that I would actually become a fan of something boasting fiber, but these little bars are majorly delicious!! They are like a chocolatey, peanut buttery, rice krispie treat with good for you fiber hidden somewhere amongst the goodness and the extra bonus is they're only 90 calories.
So, next time you need a quick snack on the go ... grab one!

I have long loved the Indie Craft Experience event in Atlanta, GA and now my very own "big city" of Greenville, SC will now be hosting the Indie Craft Parade!! I definitely plan to attend the 1st annual event next month and so excited that an amazing juncture like this is finally arriving to this area.
So, if you live anywhere in the not-too-far vicinity go here for more details.

I was lucky enough to be in TN for his birth, but just barely, luckily my parents and I decided to travel at night instead wait until morning. It only took 2 hrs of labor for him to make his debut but because he was a month earlier than expected he had to spend about a week in the NICU. However, the Little Man is all settled at home now and growing a little more (as you can see his is still swimming a bit in newborn clothes) everyday.
PS: This is the outfit I got for him the day after he was born via Target!!

So, all the fantastic things I keep reading about it around blogland has got me anxiously awaiting the March 23rd release to DVD.
An amazing music festival in Manchester, Tennessee that has an incredible lineup for 2010 ...
Kings of Leon, The Avett Brothers, She & Him, Phoenix, Regina Spektor, Norah Jones, Jay-Z, Weezer, Ok Go, Blitzen Trapper, The Flaming Lips, Dave Matthews, Zac Brown etc.
A whole year's worth of live concerts from really great artists/bands in just one week would be so worth it ... now just to find someone adventurous enough to join me.

I recently discovered Melody Gardot and her divine music; thanks to the bit CBS Sunday Morning did on her amazing story. Following an accident during college (she was hit by a car while riding her bicycle) Melody suffered some serious injuries including to her brain that seriously effected her speech, memory and left her hypersensitive to light/sound.
Once attempts to heal via therapy/drugs failed, she picked up music and slowly began to heal while finding her incredible voice.
You can learn more about her story here and visit her website here.

I mean there is a "science" to getting the right sounds in music and those who understand that science, it is just amazing what they can do.
Also, I have to say that Jack White has some killer style and the movie has got me interested in his Raconteurs music too.
I am planning to buy a pane to keep and another to use on extra special mail. If you want them for yourself be sure to mark your calendar for their March 11th release date.
