mix of sparkles and sweets

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

oh my! i have been so so incredibly busy lately, and it just won't seem to stop! my schoolwork is piling higher and higher no matter how much i try to get finished. uni certainly is a lot of work! i have greek and theatre history midterms, history papers, english papers, debate analysis, scenework.. oh and everything is to be handed in all the same time! it hurts my poor head whenever i think of it.



i am going home this saturday!! for five lovely wonderful days. i will see friends, some who i haven't seen for eight months!! oh, my heart is full thinking about it. i will be smiling and smiling all while i am home.

last night myself and my glitterfriend made pancakes for supper. pancakes! oh my, the mess we made in the kitchen. neither of us were very good at flipping. there were so many giggles and fun. we laughed and laughed. they turned out very funny looking, but with lots of butter and maple syrup and sprinkles they were tasty! yum!! i didn't get any pictures but they weren't very pretty so no worries. here is what i wish they'd turned out like:

this man's name is dave. he used to come into the coffee shop i worked at every sunday, at one oclock, with a blue knit hat on, and ordered a small colombian coffee in the blue mug. i usually had it ready and poured for him before he got there, so it wasn't too hot. he told me stories about his life. he told me of the time he was working for a man when he was seventeen, and he had finished all his work for the day. so the man told him to read the phone book, to look at the numbers and names. i can't remember why he was told to do this. but he did it. he laughed when he told me this, as if something really funny happened when he was looking at the names and he'd just remembered it .i miss dave most about working at the coffee shop.

look, here, at these stunning, gorgeous dresses. are they not the quietest beauties you've ever seen? oh how i wish i could afford such beautiful pieces. to wear in fields in the summer with my hair braided through with flowers. i found them through this blog. the designer is elizabeth dye (who also has an etsy here), and gosh does she have talent. these dresses are the prettiest i have seen in a while.



and also! through oh joy! i have just discovered this beauitful collection, oh my. the colors and small details are amazing. the pink is my favorite. and the golden sandals. oh my i could never pick!

oh! i would like to mention that the words in my last post are not my own - i only wish i could write so beautifully!
they are from the song neopolitan dreams, by lisa mitchell. she has a near perfect voice i believe. her songs are so whimsical and quiet and stunning.
the video to go with neopolitan dreams is a perfect perfect accompaniment to the song, really it is!

a thousand glittering pearls.

she keeps small notes from days gone by pinned to her walls. she colors roses and lilies and leaves them on benches and in trees. she finds feathers and put them in her hair. she lights up the world with the sparkles in her eyes. her name is moon. she was born on a tuesday, to a mother with a ring on her pinkie and an old rocking chair in the corner. her eyes are greener than the greenest pastures and her hair is longer than the longest tail. her smile is like a thousand glittering pearls hidden behind a pink secret. she likes to dance in the willows with stars on her fingers and singing melodies perfectly in tune with the wind. she conducts music with her thoughts. her toenails are painted pink and her cheeks rosy to match. she wears dresses every day. she leaves her shoes in her closet with her mice-friends. she eats only berries and leaves. her wrists are tiny and her hipbones stand out. she wears a key around her neck for her heart and her lock. moon tries and tries. she wants to see if perfection is real.


the fox and the bird.

one day, a girl awoke to a bird outside her window, reading her keats and whitman. he was blue. she listened to him, wearing a white gown with long blond hair down her back. her smile made the bird chirp louder, lovely poetry floating across on the breeze. without a care in the world she wandered through the window, into the garden. she picked strawberries, and raspberries, and rhubarb. she found a small blue bowl of cream under a tree, near a fox. she sat with the fox and the bird and dipped the berries in the cream. she shared as the bird sang on.
