seen here in the mission, after scoring some cute finds at the “thrift town” labor day sale (50% off all clothing!). i’m posing with some random crocheted, stuffed creatures in a window (on 14th street). they were all made of acrylic. i, however, am not. πŸ™‚

    That looks like an awesome neighborhood to live in, and I like the elephant stuffed animal to the far right the best.

    Sweet sunglasses, I used to have a vintage pair but they broke so I bought a cheapo oversized pair from ebay. They really don’t compare to the real thing.

    Hurray! I used to live right off Duboce triangle. I’m so happy for you! That sunny part of town will do your soul good!

    ally: you know the neighborhood on the hill next to buena vista park? that’s where we are going to be…it’s cold and windy up there, but i like it that way! πŸ˜€

    Big congrats on the apartment – that is pretty close to where I hope to move next year after my current lease is up. The yoga studio that I work at is in the Castro

    I’ve been reading your blog for some time, and I’m de-lurking to say congratulations on your apartment! That’s a great neighborhood; I can’t wait to move to SF once I’m done with school!
