Ears, Elves, & Illustrated Etiquette.

Three things to share before the weekend: hats with ears (I'd like to find something like the gray hat below and center my entire wardrobe around it for the remainder of winter),


slices of cake the size of thumbprints and doughnuts meant for elves (brilliant creations by the Unconfidential Cook - the doughnuts are actually decorated Cheerios),

                      

and a guide to kissing, written by a seventeen-year-old in 1976, and illustrated nearly forty years later by her daughter, artist Hallie Bateman.



Hope you all enjoy the weekend! What are your plans? I'm going to a friend's apartment tonight for cocktails, catching up with my pal Bekka over pie, and attending a love-themed film festival in Bushwick - why not extend Valentine's Day a few extra days?

Have a wonderful long weekend, and I'll see you Tuesday!

Have you ever seen Maison Michel's beautiful headwear? I've always kind of wanted one of their animal ear fascinators.

This weekend, I'm off to Montauk for some off-season fun!

Hahahaha...I love those hats! I have a yellow felt cat hat that I've had so much fun wearing all over DC this winter. It elicits smiles wherever I go, and is so much fun to dress around! Also, that guide to kissing for glasses-wearers such as myself is spot-on!

Oh my god those tiny little doughnuts took my breath way they are so damn cute!! I want to make some and put them in a tiny dollhouse!

I love hats with ears! I want a hat like Louise in Bob's Burgers.

Have a good weekend!

Ahhh, the donuts! They're tugging really hard on my eight-year-old heart...I would've been obsessed with having them for my dolls. And...kind of want them now anyway.

On hats with ears: we went to a club last night to see UK producer and DJ Joy Orbison (awesome!) and there was a man wearing a shaggy bear hat who was break dancing and twirling and having just the best time ever. I thought to myself "now THAT is how to life your life". So yeah, hats with ears for the win!

Have a lovely weekend!

What an entirely adorable post. I enjoyed one sweet thing after the next. :) I've seen similar hats on etsy, sadly I don't think I pinned any. Adorable, though! And now I want donuts... :)
