Friday Find… Crocheted Ankle Warmers

For those of us ladies old enough to remember the 80′s and aren’t quite ready to embrace the “retro” legwarmers just yet (really? The long sweaters over black tights are BACK?)… here is your answer. And all I have to say is, these are smokin’ hot.

And not to mention completely functional! I have so many cute shoes that don’t quite work in the winter cold of Chicago. I mean, I wouldn’t go stomping through the snow in these, but definitely out on the town for sure. That is… when we’re not inside slaving away on your invitations…

Happy Etsying!

Friday Find… GLITTENS!

The good news is I’m working at Spilled Ink Press headquarters… ALOT. The bad news is I don’t have the opportunity to casually window shop as I used to when I was working the 9 to 5 on my hour lunch break (what? Yes… an HOUR!) downtown or the stroll to and from the train directly past cute boutique shops with great window displays in Lincoln Square.

So in an effort to support my desire to shop AND feel like I’m not doing something completely gluttoness… I’d like to post fantastic Etsy store finds. Let’s just say for now it will be a Friday thing- also gone from the routine of the 9 to 5 is, well, a routine… so bare with me.

And to kick off the Friday Find… Glittens! If you know me, you know that the minute the air has a tinge of chill, out come my glittens. I. heart. glittens. They are reminiscent of childhood, yet have the practicallity of adulthood convenience to be able to grab your CTA card out of your bag when the bus comes. I found these particular glittens that I love, it appears that Deb from DebzCreations will take your measurements and custom make you whatever you’d like.
Ah. Now that’s nice.

Free Reggie the Cat!!!!

Well it looks like we won’t be seeing Reggie the cat on our walks to and from Spilled Ink headquarters anymore. Reggie, the “Mayor of Lincoln Square”, used to be a regular in the neighborhood, but for some reason he has been the target of a ridiculous leash law and will be stuck inside from now on. You can read all bout Reggie’s case here, with a follow up here. Luckily Reggie’s owner had a very large fine reduced, but he still can’t roam the neighborhood. Walks to the Western Brown Line stop will never be the same.
