events & parties :: robot inspiration

Ok. So we're suppose to be in northeast Arkansas for a 
family wedding and then on over to Memphis to see friends . . . but of course in the world of la famille bizarre plans continually change. 

Instead of continuing another day of my own pity party (about being 10 hours away from family and friends while they're all partying and having fun), 
I decided to start planning Lucas' 3rd birthday party.

I can't believe I'm even saying that out loud! My baby is turning 3!!!!!!

I've been obsessed with crazy robots since 
Lucas was all too young for that "big boy" stuff . . .
I've secretly been waiting for this day since this post from cookie magazine,  
which the picture says it all.

 To my amazement, Lucas now acts like a robot all day long (and we've got the movie robots on loop in the dvd player to prove it) . . . 
 He has surpassed my obsession which means it's time to turn our obsessions into a party!

It's 2 months away but the planning has begun!

The Invites 
. . . inspiration from tiny prints.
The Edibles 
. . . inspiration from the hostess with the mostess.

metallic my world!

All of this metallic popping up within the past few years in the design world 
has gotten me all worked up! 
But if you know anything about me, 
you know I will find a resourceful way to get a similar look.

Well, someone will have to take the spray paint away from me . . .
but not because I'm getting high . . . 
but because I have begun to spray everything needing a bit of a lift!

I began my own little metallic world a few months ago with the idea to use some of 
the metallic spray paints that are on the market and bring some of my cheap garage sale rubbish 
finds into a new demension of life.

Beginning with a vintage piggy bank for Lucas . . .

This thing was a hideous pale pink with awful flowers which need not 
ever ever ever be on a pig to begin with . . . or anything else for that matter!

A 50 cent pig is now a stellar piece of porcelin for a groovy little kid!

Then moving on to some amazing side tables . . .

This curvacious table (I bought two for $15) was just screaming for some metallic love!

and that's exactly what I gave it!
