Friday’s Pin: Red Nail Polish and Naughty Thoughts
I’m not sure about longer nails, but everything else is certainly right with this print! On Sunday IZ and I celebrate 23 years of wedded bliss. Ooh. La. La. If ever there was an occasion for bright red nails, I think an anniversary is it! Not sure exactly what we’ll be up to (is it really a naughty thought if you’re thinking about the man you married?!) and we may even delay (or extend?!) celebrating because our big day also happens to be Father’s Day.
Somehow, all those years ago, we didn’t realize we were planning a wedding for Father’s Day Weekend. This was before the internet and pinterest weddings. We chose a date months in advance and thought we were in clear when the day wasn’t anyone else’s birthday or anniversary (IZ is the baby of 8!). The holiday didn’t even dawn on us! Trust me. Father’s Day is a lot of things, but romantic? Not really.
So, every few years we share our anniversary with the holiday. And when that happens, we tend to postpone festivities to later in the month. Considering I’m swamped at church on Sunday, I’d say it’s a fair bet we won’t be celebrating on Sunday.
But I have bottle of vermillion nail laquer and I know how to use it. Just in case.
A Whale of a Good Time
Stunning print by Michele Maule. You can find it here.
I have thing for whales. Big Fish. I’m not sure why, though I do think immersing myself for months in the text of Jonah during graduate school probably played a role. The whole Jonah metaphor figures big in my life. . . but that is a different story.
And while I don’t actually collect “whale” things in real life. . . (Pretty sure that would trigger a hoarding impulse in me — ”Oh, so you really like whales!”) I find myself pinning and hearting whale things often. It’s not exactly an addiction or anything. Just a minor obsession.
How amazing is this whale? I need this, right? Fabulously created by Adatine. You can find it here.
And at the risk of provoking the ire of all my literarily minded friends: this is EXACTLY what you should be doing with Melville. . .
The House of Ismay rocking all things literary.
And sometimes, I buy tiny little jumpers in tiny little whale prints and send them to tiny little babies. ♥
