Como Park, Part 3

Como Park, Part 3
I'm back from my unexpected hiatus. The last two weeks have been a bit rough with my Hashimoto's flaring up in a bad way. I'm not sure if others with Hashi's have this problem but anything from stress to illness to even bug bites can make my thyroid go berserker. And in the last two weeks I've dealt with all of the above. First was the stress of the pop-up shop, then I got a cold/flu, next came a nasty spider bite that got all gross and swollen. Bah. The good news is that I finally found a MN doctor and made an appt for Wednesday.

In other (more fun) news, Cole and I spent Saturday afternoon at SnowGrade, a men's pop-up shop, in NE Minneapolis. After seeing an excellent axe restoration demonstration hosted by Best Made and given by Nick Zdon, we walked around drooling over Red Wing boots, Faribault blankets, Best Made axes, Leather Works, MN wallets & suspenders and Levi's Vintage Clothing from BlackBlue. I kid you not when I say I really envy boys and their sartorial options. The best part of the afternoon came right as we were leaving when a lovely reader and blogger named Jess spotted me and stopped to say hi! This was the first time I've ever been approached in public and it was quite lovely! I just hope I wasn't too awkward and didn't freak her out. :o

Day Tripper

Day Trippers
Day Tripper
How was your weekend? Mine was both crazy busy and completely wonderful! Our first Band of Thrifters pop-up sale was a great success! Friday night was so packed we could hardly move around the shop! I can't thank everyone enough for coming out and supporting our new endeavor! I'm a bit behind on emails and comments but I hope to catch up early this week.

As promised last week on instagram, here I am sporting the lovely "daytrippers" set from the awesome Valentine's Day team-up of Melie Bianco and Seychelles! They're offering discount rates on different pairings of your choice and the offer ends Feb 14th! You know I have an unhealthy obsession with tassels but what could be more perfect than having them on both your bag and loafers. I say the more the merrier!

White Bear Lake

White Bear Lake
Cole and I have driven through the quaint town of White Bear Lake twice without stopping to explore. Sunday was our evening to right that wrong. While most of the shops were closed (an excellent reason to go back), we stopped for dinner at Washington Square Bar, where we both had tacos and shared a basket of fries. All was quite yum and I must say the staff was very friendly and attentive (which I've sadly found is not the case in most MN restaurants)! Our bellies expanding with deliciousness, we decided to stop at Memorial Beach and take advantage of the lovely sunset. Even though it was quite warm, there were many cars and fishing huts out on the lake. Cole asked if I would like to take a drive on the ice and my response was "only if it's 12 below and there's a foot of solid ice!" Even then I would probably say no!

Road Trip with Band of Thrifters

Band of Thrifters
Oh boy have I been a busy beaver! Sadly that's my only real excuse for such a long blog silence (well that and Cole, my camera man, was gone for a week and I'm useless without him). I'm still painting away in my house, which is coming along quite nicely (you can find photos on instagram lulu_letty), and getting ready for my very exciting collaboration with my friends John & Amanda! This weekend, Feb 10-11, is the launch of our pop-up shop and brand, Band of Thrifters. You'll be able to find impeccable vintage for men, women, children and your home! Come for music and drinks from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday we'll be there from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. having a grand ol' time!

I hope that all my friends and readers in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas will be able to stop by and say Hi!
