Above is a tag (stencil) I designed last week with an old cereal box, exacto knife, cutting board, InDesign, & tracing paper. I think people should be warned when they are in stray cat xing territory since homeless kitties are roaming every where. Strayness is actually how I acquired Miss Kitty (my cat) && the two others living with my parents, there’s nothing better than rescuing an animal. I spray painted the table I have in my backyard as a tester and I think it went pretty swell.
Next is photos from my sneaky get away over to Atlanta for a night at the Five Spot and hanging with Dusty’s musician buddies. It was awesome as expected with a strange abundance of sax players and The Girls Next Door playing behind the Five Spot Orchestra on a huge screen.
coat: UO, t-shirt: vintage t-shirt vendor from Birmingham, shades;purse;boots-vintage, fedora: vintage gift for my boyfriend that I sometimes borrow.
The following day we woke up and grabbed some coffee at a sweet joint called Octane, then headed off to scoop out the deals at the Salvation Army-1/2 off clothes Wednesday! Dusty ended up with a sweet pair of running shoes and I found 5 totally awesome blouses of sorts!! I love S.A.! We later drove around looking at different areas of town we would like to move to in the soon future, taking down the numbers at various apts, lofts, & duplexes. Feels so good to know that opportunity is ahead because I’m really hurting for a job and need to hit the highway and Atlanta is just the place. I just wish there was less crime, here in Alabama we don’t have to worry about locked doors and such but I know I can adapt because a big city is where I belong–the city must have surrounding wild life & outdoor recreation for sure. I think if I can handle D.C. I can deal with ATL, I mean come on it’s still in Georgia. hehe. Enough ramblings for now, I am going to check out my friend’s art gallery opening at O.N.O of all the photos she took in Ireland for a DVD.
Sweet dreams to all when your head finally hits the pillow!

Aww oh the poor homeless kitties. FAntastic news to hear you and your parents adopting some little strays :)
Sounds like a blast was had. Live music is always so much more better to listen, view and shimmy too ;)
Good luck with the house hunt! You’ll find a beaut someplace :)

Wow, you’re moving to Atlanta! I live in the suburbs super close, but my boyfriend lives in the city (close to Octane!) and it’s not that bad. There definitely are some good parks once you get out of the city, and lots of little towns for exploring. Also it’s not all that scary to drive in–I’m sure it’s lots less busy than D.C.!
