Some Happy Things.

Elizabeth Taylor & James Dean's movie Giant. Nekos and I devoured this three-hour movie last week. I was surprised how ahead of its time it seems -- featuring a truly loving interracial marriage. And I had no clue that James Dean was such a fine actor. This is a new favorite flick. The pic below is of Taylor sunning herself on set.

This book by Emily Chalmers. It looks vibrant and inspiring. I'm gonna have to get me a copy.

This fabric necklace tutorial. Click to see. Here's the one I made yesterday. Took all of 30 minutes, and I got to use up some cool retro fabric.

This pretty decorative tray. This would go atop my dresser and I would display my rings over there on the right side.

The new Closet Case Vintage lookbook. Nashville's own CCV recently released its Spring/Summer 2011 Lookbook. Lots of candy-colored whimsical images and perfectly pretty vintage pieces. See the whole thing here.

This hairstyle. I am about to take the plunge and chop my hair off. I've had long hair now for seven years, but I am loving this shaggy bob with bangs.

This Creamy Chicken and Cornbread recipe. I finally made something from the cooking blog I've been stalking the past few months -- Can You Stay for Dinner? And it was one of the best things I've ever made. Nekos and I put Tessa to bed and took our dinner outside last night. And it's not even 11 a.m. and I'm already getting excited about heating it up for lunch today.
