Mr Turkey

I would not be myself if I didn't have Mr Turkey
wish everyone a happy thanksgiving this year. 
I can't believe I forgot to bring him on my road trip. 
Dragging Mr Turkey out for Thanksgiving drinks at the bar
brings me so much happiness. 
Vintage floral Thanksgiving! Have a good one!

this is me

thoroughly entertained with myself in the new 'Mel' 
sweater that just arrived for our Fall 11 photo shoot this week. 
This thing is so darned cute. And, the color 'pinky'
can soften anyone up. Even me!
Look for yours from Split Girl very soon!
I have many pics of trees to share from my woodsy 
weekend on the Greenbank Farm.
Right now, however, I must get in a car and drive to SF. 
Happy Turkey week!
p.s. I swear I do not think I am a model all of the 
sudden. I have no idea what has gotten into me.

i repeat

I love this Split Girl Fall tunic. 
And ahem.. here is our new model, April. 
She is a complete babe and the sweetest thing. 
Happy weekend! Me and the toddler are 
off the the remote wilderness of the San Juan islands!

laces and fur balls.

I do love laces.
who doesn't want this zexy open lace on 
a button up and a dress? I know!
You will have it next year by way of Split Girl.

Wanna see something ridiculous?
meet Felix.. Ringo's newly adopted friend. 
yes, he resembles barf from space balls. 
And! I just promoted to myself to the level of 
spastic pet owner, as I have completely decided that 
Ringo, in his 2 lb/12year old state, needs to start 
wearing sweaters to keep his little body warm. 
So, look for that entertainment later. 
But, enough funny diversions...
the reason for our newly adopted gopher-rabbit
is because I lost my most loved bunny Jamie the rabbit 
in August. 
 I adopted Jamie the rabbit 8 1/2 years ago, when he was 1 1/2. 
Of course I was attracted to him by his fantastic name, which I never 
had the heart to change. And so, I endured 8 years of being made fun of
over my rabbit of the same name. He was such a love and 
my little buddy. He always wanted to see me even in times when no 
one else did. gulp! I miss him. This was one of the reasons for 
my August depression 2010.
I just needed to hold that information close to me until I was 
ready to share it. xx
Ok, let's end on a high.  I came into work today wearing an oversized 
man-shirt. Standard. Then I got my yummiest flannel tunic sample in 
for next year. Me and flannels, 
we don't really understand each other. 
Its one of those not-angsty-enough situations. 
So let's reinvent the wheel here and wear batwing flannel tunics
with aztec plaid. 
And, it has pockets. I'm in love! I wish I had brought a little belt today. 
yay! Happy Tues!

Speaking of Aztec

and this awesome jacket..
look at these amazing images from 
Yance and Daves southwestern adventure. 
So incredible. 
 If one person supports my love of
heavy weaves, its Lance. Miss you!

look what we have here!

Swim season is almost upon us.. fall selling season
starts in January. 
So, we are getting closer and closer to the new 
Split Girl website launch. In the meantime, we 
are going to go ahead and exercise our right to blog. 
Find the Split girl blog here
And because I am a glutton for punishment, or 
I love to spread my face across the worldwide web - 
you choose - I am the temporary blog model. 
Don't get excited.. I said temporary. 
So look forward to new blogs to come!

fun fact

Well. Today is my birthday. 
Last night I got into bed at about 11:50 and 
ten minutes later was woken up by my computer, 
and the lines 'hey Jaimee, it's your birthday'.
I knew the sound immediately, though I had no idea where it 
was coming from. 
Fun fact =  Every year on my birthday
I listen to 'my' birthday song. This song is completely
cheesy and titled 'Happy Birthday Jaimee', of course,
and involves a wacky character named Captain Zoom 
singing to me. I am fairly certain it is also someone else's
song as well, since there is a clear break in 
the song where the name
'Jaimee' is yelled. 
The best part about this song is that it came to me by way of a 6"
LP on top of one of my birthday presents at my 4th birthday. 
Here is me at Cuesta park on my fourth birthday. 
and here is me freaking out after my balloons flew away. 
I tried to get Ava to put this on this morning to indulge my 
birthday fantasies and I got a big hand to the face. 
My birthday related nostalgia is raging and 
I was feeling pretty good after schlepping out the 
dress while listening to the birthday song.  
And now, I must subject all of you to the birthday song. 
I will not apologize for how crazy it is. 
Sadly, I could not find video footage from the above party.
So, I set the song to the scene from my second birthday party.

I think I will circle back to Halloween/bday week images next week. 
Because this day is all about me. ha!
Have a good weekend! xx!

If someone wants to buy me one for my birthday, I will not
stop 'you'.
