Australian shop Lark is exactly the kind of store I LOVE! It’s filled with unique, cutesy, girly, vintage items that are destined to become heirlooms. ( I could be a little dramatic, right now because no one right is gonna use 40 year old soap.) Anyway, here’s a run down of everything I loved in their online store:

1. Fun Fact: I collect cuckoo clocks and gnomes. (That probably explains everything.) Anywho, these cuckoo clocks are extra-special because they’re FELT! Awesome is an understatement. But I predict it would be covered in cat hair by day 3 at my house. Even more FUN!

2. Deer soap- So vintage-y and Bambi-like. LOVE  it so much that I probably would never use it. Woe is me.

3. A Diner lunchbox/handbag- It’s a 1950s partaaay!

4.A pigtail kit- Because it’s a dire necessity in any girl’s life. I ordered two.

5. Vintage Dinner Placemat- Excellent way to remember which side the silverware goes. Also, an excellent way to serve food without dishes…. maybe not.

6.An owl purse- My Goldfrapp obsession continues…

7. Felt deer’s head- Brilliant!!!! No deers died for that, but the felt felt something.(Gong! Wait one more.. almost done….)

8.Teacup gift wrap- But, of course!

Okay, you can use the hook now.

Now I know what to do with my duvet that has cat piss stains on it -Dye it an inconspicuous grey-ish brown color and wrap it around me. This totally beats wearing pajamas in public. You can always count on Rick Owens to whip out the goth with a touch of WTF. The dramatic eye makeup reminds me of when I used to wear dramatic eye makeup at Newport Creamery. In case you have no idea what Newport Creamery is, basically it’s an ice cream parlor and diner in New England and yes, I was a waitress during my youth there. I used to scare customers (mostly elderly) with my makeup since we all had to wear uniforms. I had to channel my style through something! And so I chose my makeup. By the end of the shift, my eye makeup was smudged down my cheeks from the manual labor of scooping ice cream and greasy air. Anyway, there’s a duvet DIY in here somewhere!
