Lazy Mondays...

M and I went thrifting together today... First day off since Costa Rica, and I couldn't wait! First we hit up Goodwill Hunting, then off to Value Village-no-City! Glorious. The best thing about M is that even though she is a total babe who lives in mini-skirts and leather jackets - she's also this super-genius writer who just published a huge article about boosterism in Canadian art, which basically got Gary Michael Dault fired at the Globe and Mail.

So of course when I left her alone for two minutes (I was testing out the 3-deck Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles skateboard they had there) she was surrounded by dudes when I found her again. Too bad for them, M's first love is vintage hunting so off we went. (But not before someone generously offered to design the Deadly Nightshades a new logo.) It's funny how guys assume that because you're wearing a short skirt that you're gonna be slutty. Couldn't be further from the truth - but it would be nice if some dudes weren't so predictable all the time. Anyway, we found the most amazing pink and white mid-century lamp, tiny owls, tiger print scarves, pretty dresses, an embroidered giraffe pillow, vintage towels, a fur hat and cape and a sweater that says...

All in all it was a huge success. Can't wait to post pics of the pink lamp in the studio!!!
