the wind is coming...

I really dislike windy days!

(They sure make lovely pictures, though)

And in Vegas, we get a lot of windy days.

"The National Weather Service in Las Vegas has issued a dust advisory through Monday evening. Wind gusts could reach up to 40 miles-per-hour..."- lvrj

There is a number to call to report excessive amounts of blowing dust, its 385- DUST.

Tips to keep dust down:

  • Drive slowly on unpaved roads.
  • Don't take short cuts across vacant lots.
  • Ride off-road vehicles outside the urban areas of the Las Vegas Valley.
  • Fence off barren property or cover it with gravel, rock or desert-friendly landscaping.

i'm currently obsessed with kitchens......and this might be because I need to start working on my own!

<_>

i really like old wood flooring. Where can I find this Vegas?

The teal & red combination is fancy, but I don't know about the black & white checkered mat...not my thing, I guess?

I want a mug holder like this one. Anyone know where I can get one?

Including peacocks!!

I love to look at custom-made homes built in las vegas, ranch style homes, old homes in general (historic/modern)...
Here are some of my favorites that I went by...

This is a photo I took at a friend's house. Its in their backyard, I loved the lighting it had with the clouds at night in the background. This is yelling pool party for summer time. I'm trying to work on Las Vegas home tours...I think soon I will have my first post. I'm still making some contacts to see who is interested in showing me their home...
Anyone living in the downtown area, please please let me know if you're willing to give My Little Way a home tour...I'd love to see what you got to show!

This past 1st Friday was a success....
As I had mentioned last year, The Gypsy Den is a vintage boutique that has some serious potential for the downtown Las Vegas Arts movement. For the first time ever, Gypsy featured artwork displayed on old, rustic, antique doors in a maze-like setting. The lighting was perfect, the weather was a little chilly, but I can't wait til' the summer time. Its going to bring a lot of new people in to check some local art work.
Speaking of first friday, check out this before/after of The Funk House, downtown Las Vegas.

Magic Child, an online vintage boutique featuring girl & guys' apparel. What is fascinating about the boutique is that its ran by these 2 birds above, Ashley & Ian who both live together in a town named Akron in Ohio. ....so multi-talented that not only do they have really awesome clothing, but they even produce their own music, listen to them here.
They've been featured in Nylon Magazine
And as I was cruisin on Nylon's web page, I noticed a particular image of MYSELF! and a friend at a Nylon party when they were in town for the Magic Tradeshow here in Las Vegas. agh..... thxs Nylon! Yes, thats cranberry & vodka. BLAGH.
This is my favorite jumper. From Magic Child, of course!
