shop preview

Lots of color and prints popping into the shop this week, and my favorite might just be those crazy pop art peppers at the end!  It may not yet look like it, Northern Hemisphere, but Frühling kommt!  ("Spring is coming."  And I am studying German.  So get used to random German terms being tossed around here.  Anyone with advice or thoughts on learning another language in adulthood, please feel free to leave a comment.  I'd love to hear from you!)

  1. What! Those peppers look crazy good.

  2. Those pop art peppers are AMAZING!
    And German? Wow! You didn't pick an easy language to learn. Though I suspect it will help you converse with Mr Waltz better. ;)

    1. Actually, so far the German isn't too difficult. To pronounce anyway. Maybe it's all the German already in me, but I find it much easier and more "natural" to pronounce German words than, say, French. But we'll see how I feel when I get to the über-long compound words!

  3. love the pics of the dresses, they look awesome! and I LOVE those 40s shoes...love.

  4. Um, love the peppers!

    My Snell Teach Yourself Hindi books taunt me daily from my bookshelf, so I'm no expert, but I'd recommend pop culture consumption (like a certain actor's films) when possible, along with the usual language study exercises. I've picked up very (VERY) rudimentary Hindi just from years of Bollywood films and songs.

    1. Yes, my fellow print-lover, aren't the peppers crazy? I love them.

      I was hoping someone would come along and make that very suggestion (pop culture consumption). I listed to a half hour Waltz being interviewed on a German TV show yesterday...and yeah. I have a ways to go. ;)
