talk to me about how my little nephew man is soooo cute!! not sure if i've divulged that mr. lucas fanukas has major musical leanings-his favorite song, at 15 and a half months, is empire state of mind!! +happily he, unlike a couple members of our family, has an inate sense of rhythm. so when i found this delightful drum, i knew it'd be perfect. +he knew how to use the drumsticks without best.

other presents i gave that i was excited about gifting to the fam:

a year in the life of lucas fanukas..a big hit with everyone!

a tiny awesome native inspired acne sweatshirt..(i bought it for $40 but for some reason on this website it says it costs $599--not true)

monogrammed tote bags in cascading sizes- extralarge for "DAD"+"NONNA", large with long handles for "MOM", and small for "LUCAS"....

one last amuse bouche.

one last dream item for the 2009 wishlist.. this RODARTE sweatshirt is what i would/should like to be breaking throughout this new year...

aiming for aime in O 10.

y mas rodarte schmarte...i say more because i did end up finding a couple of leftover gems from the rodarte go collection...specifically 2 of the navy lace scoopneck t shirts-1 in M, 1 in layer fantastic! as well as the leopard dress, which needs to be taken in, as the last size was a 9+doesn't really fit properly..but it's got major potential!

i've found somebody better than you.

dear lovely lumix,
i'm afraid we've grown apart and i'm going to take this opportunity to thank you for all you've given me. i can't even count all the ways you've helped me grow+taught me to share. but sometimes you don't realize what your missing until you find something new...
so while you've been so good to me, i'm afraid we're just going in different directions+i just don't think we work well together anymore. i'm sorry, this may seem like it came out of left field but i had to come clean-i've been thinking about someone else. i thank you for all the fond memories+i will always have a place on my shelf for you.

dear canon G11,
i love you. i can't wait to share our lives together. i know we've just met but i think we've really got somethin here. i can't deny it. we have a lot of learn from each other+i don't expect it to be easy at first-enmeshing our lives as it were, but i have deep faith that we will soon get on the same page. i look forward to sharing my future with you.
with the utmost admiration of your sunflare capabilities,

bottom foto by xabi--check out the star flares in the sunglasses-so best.

+thank you thank you thank you mumsa for my new baby!!

packed it in with a yellow caterpillar+an emerald crinoline**

my jauntsetter write up went up today--see here if you'd like to read some of my ramblings about funtimes on the road.
thanks to the dashing dorothy!!! it was a really fun interview+a super fun fotoshoot...

**one of my favorite questions was edited here it is:

what's one unusual item you've brought back from a trip?

From my most recent trip? A Dead caterpillar, a crazy green crinoline (that I almost had to wear on the plane cause I couldn’t fit it in my bag, a hippy pouch of crystals, merlot colored suede fringe chaps+a wild turkey feather.

EDIT: big sur reportage is up on the jauntsetter blog.

our pockets were full of champagne+our lungs with laughter.

we had such a f-ing blast at my brother+sister-in-law's 5th annual global warming much so that we almost had a forced park slope slumber party...but after a group hike in our party clothes, we managed to pay an off duty taxi a pretty penny to bring us home.
thanks to my dears for making saturday an adventure never to be forgotten.
blizzard'09, you got nothin on any of shoes be damned. (okay-i did trade out my comey leopard pony hair pumps for borrowed boots but cedez+claire hoofed it in their pretty lady shoes-radical chicas indeed.)
