MY OTHER SELF

would have a closet exactly like this


 and 
would never leave the house in tennis shoes again


my other self 
would wear a top like this just to make people wonder if there's anything under it


and
would feed you these


 or these 
whenever you came to visit


my other self 
would proudly drink her tea out of this mug


and 
her laundry room would look like this every day


she would carry a puppy "that stays this little" with her everywhere she went


and 
her office would make people swoon


my other self
would be able to do this with her hair


 and
she would spend her days setting up vintage themed weddings around the world


 and
last but not least
my other self
would have this hanging on her wall 
to welcome her home
 and
 remind her what's really important

thanks karen for an hour of fun....i needed the distraction

  5. I love your take on this challenge! Especially that hair...I never could fix my daughters' hair the way I wanted and now I am having the same problem with my granddaughter's:( Don't think I am going to find the time to take the challenge but I sure am enjoying others:)

  9. Oh, how I love that sign! I may have to try something similar myself. More projects :)

    As for that hairstyle there is a blog I started following recently that just posted a tutorial on how to do that (she is doing 30 hairstyles in 30 days) with a video that doesn't look too hard. Yours would be a little shorter but maybe you could use parts of the idea. If you're interested it's at http://myyellowsandbox.blogspot.com/2011/05/day-12-becky-wannabe.html

  12. Thank goodness blogger got it's act together as I typed a comment to this yesterday and it wouldn't go through! I'm pretty sure I said how much I enjoyed your call to a challenge! Fun and insightful and seems fitting to your personality! Hope you can get the book at Barnes. I think they may be selling them at Anthro too. Call before you waste a trip. Curious to see what you think. Also, Leslie from acreativemint just recommended a book about food styling, "From Plate to Pixel" which is on it's way to me right this very minute. I am very curious as anything Leslie does makes me swoon. If she says it's good, it is! Xo

    What a cool idea for a post. Makes me all daydreamy, wondering what my other self would be like. Such a happy thing to dream about...and why not beg borrow and steal a few ideas and make them real?
