This is awesome and had me giggling so I thought I’d share it. You’re welcome. Hope you guys are having an awesome Thursday!
House of Hipsters is a year old! Okay, don’t freak out, but to celebrate, I decided to give one of my lucky readers my favorite item from the Erica Weiner Collection to say thank you for visiting this site. You’ve helped HOH grow to where it is today, and I would not be here without you. If you haven’t heard of Erica, you need to check out her site. Erica self taught herself the craft of making jewelry. It began as a way to relieve stress after work, but before long, it turned into a full-fledged cult following! And I am one of those devout followers.
So, what’s up for grabs? It’s my all time favorite Heartbeats Necklace. It’s a 3/4″ wide, gold heart charm with the R. Kelly quote, “AND AFTER THE PARTY IT’S THE HOTEL LOBBY”. (Also, Lena Dunham seems to dig this one as well.) From far away it kinda says, hey look at me, I’m a pretty and I’m a sweet heart necklace…so innocent. But get a little closer and it says, and I likes ta shake it. Okay, now you can freak out.
If you’ve been reading House of Hipsters, you know I love to style with a stack of books (usually topped with a small object or vase). As of late, I’ve been styling the house like a mad woman, and I’m running low on reading material. Good heavens, what’s a girl to do? Ummmmmm, ya, go shop for books, duh! And that is exactly what I’ve been doing. I have a few interior design books I’ve been yearning for, but I also like to shake things up. I like topics that reflect the house’s personality (and the people that live there).
If you are like me, you take a lot of photos on your phone. But one day out of the blue, it that little handheld device starts to beep, buzz and yell…you are almost out of memory. Whomp. Whomp. This happens to me all the time. About once every couple weeks, I have to plug it into my computer and remove tons and tons of photos. I archive them knowing I may never see them again. Sad face. But there’s always a handful after each sync that I can’t bear to part with, which takes up more space on that phone. I just know that these little memories will be buried on my computer, and maybe I’ll run across them in a few months or a year.
Well you guys have made my heart go pitter patter. Yesterday’s post was not easy for me, and I sat there for a long time before I pressed publish. Thank you for your kindness. My inbox has been overflowing with sweet messages. It means the world to me that you read my story and just bringing her top of mind makes me smile. I know she’ll never be forgotten. So for that, I will be forever indebted to you. And how about that picture up there! That is me with some jazzy high waisted denim and suspenders…because apparently they weren’t high enough…along with my mom and sister standing in front of the It’s a Small World ride.
