It's been since late August that I shared photos of my parent's foxes, Lady and Tramp, and even then it was only photos of Lady since Tramp was exercising his dominance. So, it's really been quite a while since you've seen his handsome face. I've said it in every previous post, and I'll most likely continue to say it in future posts but daaaaang, they've changed so much! The most striking change, to me at least, is Tramp's colors! Not only is his face silver, his red is so vibrant now. As a pup he was more yellow-ish in color and now as my niece exclaimed upon seeing him "he looks like a real fox!" Haha!

They're just as crazy as ever. I took SO many photos of them, partly because I really had no idea if I was getting anything good. They move so quickly! They are just wild lil things. Darting back and forth, diving into the grass, and hopping on top of each other. Looking through my photos yesterday I noticed that I barely saved any of the first half, the goods one were all toward the end and that was because that was when they finally burned off some of their energy and slowed down.

Had to include this ridiculous photo, just a tangle of wresting foxes.

Something kind of random that I can't get over is how weird foxes look when they pant. Of course, in the photos I decided to share you only see this once. (Lady in the third photo) They open their mouths up so wide! It reminds me of Barbara in Beetlejuice when her and Adam try to scare the Deetz family. I think it's something you might just have to see in person to understand but the whole time I was taking these I was just thinking "your mouth is so weird!" Even with Beetlejuice mouths, these guys are still the some of the cutest things I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. They are so soft, and those fluffy tails are just the best. It breaks my heart they don't want to snuggle with me as much as I want to snuggle with them.

You can find previous posts on Lady and Tramp here - June, late June, July, and August. The last photo in the first post gets me every time. I cannot believe that tiny little thing sleeping in my lap is the same creature in the photos above. I am still so excited to watch them continue to grow!

Just a note to add that foxes definitely aren't for everyone. They require a lot of work, care, and attention. Not to mention in most states they are illegal to keep as pets unless you have a license. Please do your research!

Hey, hey! I have a little Halloween treat for y'all today!

The photos I took for my skull cleaning post ended being something I unexpectedly LOVED...a lot. Those photos are the backgrounds on both my laptop and desktop computers, and on my phone. I don't know why exactly I love them so much but I do.

With Halloween approaching I thought it'd be the perfect time to actually get those photos printed on some fabric. I like skulls all year long but I know a lot of people don't. The thing is I go by the thought that anything goes in October! October 1st I actually went out and bought skeleton leggings because if anyone questions me I can just say they're for Halloween. So whether or not you feel you need an excuse to have your odds and ends stored in a cute little skull pouch I've got ya covered! 

A bit of good news for everyone - I've lowered shipping costs for all destinations, including international. It seriously blows my mind how expensive shipping packages overseas, and even to Canada has become. Even with such small items it's a nice chunk of change. I want everyone to be able to enjoy my things, not just those who live in the US so even if that means eating a little bit of the costs myself, I lowered the price!

The pouches are available for purchase here! Just like the past collections, these are limited edition. There is a very small number of the larger pouches since they use up so much fabric. I wouldn't hesitate if you're interested in grabbing one. Once these ones are gone, they won't be restocked and the fabric won't be reprinted.

PS. If you purchase one of these or one from any previous collection - I wanna see pictures! Tag me on instagram or even shoot me an email.

So I read a bunch about how this lock is basically useless for actually securing your bike since it can easily be cut through just like a chain lock but LOOK HOW PRETTY! I wish really good locks came in pretty options, having one to match my bike would be pretty awesome.

Way into this pretty red coat, and that whole outfit really.

▴ A recent obsession with old signs and the like has me wishing for this taxi light.
Fox gloves!
▴ Jeff's sister is expecting so last week I went shopping for things for my new nephew. I'm not interested in having any of my own, at least not for a long time but I will admit that shopping for babies is fuuuun. Everything is so darn cute. This little bear cowl showed up on my feed over on Etsy and it's so cute it hurts.
▴ The perfect notepad.
▴ Oh look, another a pretty notebook, this one is covered in cactus!
▴ A shark costume for your hedgehog!!!

Happy Friday!
