...Is it weekend yet?

errr...well almost!
I'm quite excited for this upcoming weekend...
.
...cos' someone has asked me out on a date! 
.
'OKie! ~I replied.
hey-heyyy...still single & so ready to mingle!
(blush-blush*)

Anywayyy...
Take a look at what I bought during my lunch break...so cute no?
This tin giraffe was made + hand painted by the Shona tribe of Zimbabwe, Africa.
Got it from Barnes & Noble Store. Did not realize this bookstore has started
selling such cuteness these days. I think Giraffes are such amazing creatures and
I simply adore how they sometimes flutter their long eyelashes ~so coquettish!

The first--out of three constantly revisited--choice for the pnuts halloween costume this year was a giraffe. Which I'm sure would've been the tiniest giraffe ever on record.

And have a great time this weekend!

Friday's just over the hill. If I had a long neck like your pet giraffe I'm sure I could see Friday already.

Leah said...

PS... I love your header photo. I'm obsessing over Goyard trunks since forever. xoxo

He is a cutie. There are some wonderful recycled tin products coming out of Africa at the moment. Check out Ten Thousand Villages if there is one near you.
Happy Friday

Date date, how sweet and fun! I've been on a dating whirlwind lately. Fall is most definitely the season of romance, as we choose who we want to hunker down with for the winter, don't you think?

I love books and I love barnes and nobles. I can spend hours and hours there. I would have to agree with Karl's quote about books.

Sam said...

What a stunner he is! If I looked half as elegant as he does I'd be a super happy camper! Love your little tin friend too!

Jenna @ Mi Vida Bonita said...
