i feel special.

back in december, susan (a fellow furniture painter and one of my internet friends) from retro restyling wrote to me that she was making me a gift, and would be mailing it to me. i had no idea what it would be, but i love getting mail, and having something made for me felt so special.

when i got it, i saw that it was 2 things: an ornament and a pair of (hilarious) socks based on dr. seuss' book "one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish"...i was really happy, because i really love all things dr. seuss, and she knocked it outta the park. check out these fabulous socks she made:


hah! thank you so much, susan, for making me the thoughtful gifts! the cute ornament hung on our tree for a few weeks, and is now safely packed away with all of the other ornaments, waiting to be hung on the tree next year.


  1. Oh.... I'm laughing so much over here! Those socks are AMAZING on you!!! I was hoping I would be able to see them on you soon. :) Thanks for being a great friend and inspiration. I'm glad you liked the gifts!

  2. You are adorable! Just discovered you through LGN. She featured an adorable nursery with yellow striped ceilings {know the one}? anywho...this is super random, but I'm refinishing a dresser for my son's room and the dark navy one featured in that nursery is my inspiration. I'm looking for some hardware like that and wondered if by some small chance you could tell me where they came from? Thanks in your work!

  3. Those are awesome! How can your readers get a pair? Does she have an Etsy site?

  4. thanks, friends!

    kat, i am not can get to her blog via this post, though, and im sure you can ask her about it :)

  5. Kat, I actually just made them for Kristen as kind of a giggle type joke but you can make yourself a pair very easily. I posted the "how to create awesomely funny Gox box Socks" on my blog. :)
