Do You Know How BAD the OIL SPILL is???

THIS IS SCARY!!!










It's hitting the coast. 
It's affecting wildlife. 
No beach trips this summer... 
Will some fish go instinct? 
Birds feathers are stained. 
Fisherman are losing their jobs. 
This is the worst oil spill tragedy in the world.


What can we do? 
Hope and pray that this gets under control asap. 






this bird is drenched with oil.
It's scary for our city and I just hope it doesn't reach Lake Pontchartrain or our fresh water supply.

If you have the skills... get involved! They need workers! and it pays!

Crazy Days. I Love Shoes. Shop Update.

Crazy Days. 
so basically life has been crazy because...
1- The Super Bowl took place and the city went CRAZY! 
    For New Orleans... football is more than just a sport. 
    It means new hope for our city. 
2- Then Mardi Gras took place and the city went CRAZY! 
    After a Saints victory, people couldn't be filled with more glee. 
    Traffic, parades, traffic, parades & barricades. 
3- Then Jesse & I both got sick and our house looks CRAZY! 
    We need to clean so bad. We try to keep up but it's been hard. 
    So BLOGGING time has been limited due to CRAZY DAYS!

Retro Sodas Are Back (for a limited time?)

Mountain Dew Throwback style features real sugar. Real sugar + caffeine. You will only find that combination in these throwbacks. They have a Pepsi Cola version also.  They, of course, are still not "good" for you BUT they are better for you. AND they taste soo much better. I love Abita Root Beer but sometimes I want caffeine!



check out these retro mountain dew commercials! 
me and jesse can't stop staying 
"yahoooo! mountain dew!" hahaa






and now DEAL OF THE WEEK

broke? bored? advice? a song.

pinching pennies? don't want to waste left over kitchen supply? 
go HERE & TYPE
in what you already have 
and see what you can make! 
less trips to the store and 
less stuff sitting around in your kitchen not getting used

I did this because I have eggs, flour, butter, and cream cheese and I wanted to make something without having to buy more stuff. I searched and found this! 
I'm going to make these German Pancakes and then make a vanilla cream cheese icing to put on top! yum! 

RANDOM fun...

IS this the name of a FONT or a type of CHEESE

SO... I've been wanting to open up another shop. One that is for more chic, intricate, handmade things. I've done lots of brainstorming and thought of the name PAR LES MAINS (yesterday) which is French for by the hands. I want to keep my shop, Nifty Thrifty Owl, but maybe have that be a line of just vintage finds, maybe minor alterations, and kitschy simple creations. So it will be lower prices and the other shop would be more labor induced, more expensive supplies, and more intricate designs, so higher prices. What do you think of the name idea?

SWEET DEAL of the week! click >> Urban Outfitters basic PE Cardigans are now $29!
