I know that Handmade Detroit (also on Etsy) has had a Michigan-with-heart logo for years. This designer's heart is in the exact same spot (over Detroit)... so perhaps this design isn't all that clever or original.

I don't like how she that claims Wimberley is an "invented" name. My band director in high school was Mr. Wimberley. And what about Wimberly, TX? Another "invented" name on her list? Shreyan, which is Hindu for "Most Blessed." Name expert, my ---.

Sooo about the scribbled "Ben & Taylor..." which appears twice... I noticed this because I'm Taylor and I live with my boyfriend, Ben. Weird.

My college roommates and I used to host Project Runway nights at out apartment and it was so much fun! I've been thinking of resurrecting them now that I've moved to a new city... it seems like a great way to make new friends.

DETROIT! I'm about to move there and I can't wait. I really love that city. Abandonment and all... but there are people (several artists that I know of) buying up whole blocks and renovating them. Slowly, but surely...

I was a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding this weekend and I took an entire week to travel. When I got home Tuesday night, I found my poor little Baby dead in her kennel. I have two roommates and for a whole week, they neglected to give her the food I left, fresh water and forget about affection. They didn't even let her out of the kennel ONCE, they heard her crying for days, shut my door and ignored her.

I've had my cat for 15 years, since I was 10 years old and she was just a kitten. I took her to college with me, brought her to New York... she's been my companion, my child for 15 YEARS and I left her in the "care" of two supposed friends for ONE WEEK. She'd been through so much (tail amputation, poisoning, hyper-thyroid), yet soldiered on each time... to think that her death was so avoidable. WATER, FOOD- these are basic things! And she must have suffered so much... I doted on her constantly so the fact that she died of neglect... I'm still in shock, frankly.

She's being cremated, but I don't know if I should take her ashes back to our childhood home for burial or keep her with me. Also, how do I continue to live with these people who killed my child?! Ugh, I'm sorry for the rant, but this was the first morning I had to wake up without her... but I swear I felt her walking on my legs bright and early as usual :(

I agree with rachelp, it alleviates the consumer-guilt. I rather but from an individual than from a company, whenever possible.

... and there are some great finds!

Although I'm a born-n-bred Austinite, I've always LOVED this area and San Antonio in general (esp. for the architecture). And nothing beats Rosario's in my book! Mmm... if only I didn't live in NYC now :/
