Here comes one of those entries where nothing really goes together. These photos have built up in my "bloggable" folder but just haven't fit with any other topic. So let's dispense with the segues and just press on, shall we?

Most of you know my youngest is quite the Conspicuous Consumer. She is well-known for her love of plastic crap - Littlest Pet Shop, Fashion Pollies, etc., etc. She's never met a Target aisle she didn't like. Same goes for any mall fashion store. (Heck, her nickname is "Mal" - and she spells it "Mall") So, what birthday gift could be more perfect that these socks, given to her by a gal pal?

This is the Special Board outside the drive-thru Starbuck's at 91st and Yale. I wish they'd write something on it. Anything. Just to give me the illusion that my day might be at least a little special.

My favorite t-shirt belonging to birthday girl. Typecasting at its finest:

Really, really amazing new yarn from Tilli Tomas. Beads and sequins. Oh my.

And thanks to Renée for sending in this photo. She asked if Loops would be teaching a class on these scarves any time soon?

Loops Troops: any volunteers?

Oh, I especially love the "tatoos!" Hilarious! And those are some pretty perky women for their age!

Maybe Starbucks was going for the "clear your mind" mood that day? :-)
