I Am Still Alive

Well, fancy meeting you here! After a month of my absence, you are maybe a bit dissapointed or annoyed with me. (In which case, I'm honestly flattered you care that much about my blog, seriously.) Please forgive me loyal readers! So many things have come up in the past month that have occupied much of my physic energies. Phenomena such as:
  • moving 
  • cultivating some new friendships...
  • ...the most important of which is my best friend's newborn baby! Proud to be officially "auntie pickles"!
  • hanging up some of my photos at the Blackhand Coffee shop here in Richmond, VA
  • attempting not to completely wither away in the heat
  • attending an outlaw-themed wedding that was nothing short of debauched 
  • contributing my first (of many) article to RVA: get the real scoop on glitter in my exclusive interview with Sirena Sparkles
  • joining a local herb guild
  • slicing off part of my index finger in a deli-slicer (I could see the flesh and everything!) 
Let me bombard you with photos?
My New Apartment
It's still in progress...
teapot terrarium and books
dressform and paintings
Things are coming along nicely overall and soon I'll do a whole virtual tour of my apartment. But not while my new craft room looks like this:

All other photos from this event would not be appropriate for some of my audience so... you'll have to ask me in person for more details.

It saddens me to tell you that the beautiful cat recently featured in my outfits roundup post was killed by a car only a week after our photo session. :(
me and caprica, one week before her death
RIP Caprica, you are missed. 
And in closing, allow me to present more cute animals:
this cloud has teeth!!
hey! this cloud has teeth!!
what's cuter than a sheltie? TWO shelties!

Oh hey, are you following me (@melinabee) on Instagram by the way?
