I only talk about dinosaurs and jewelery.

Did I use nails to hang these heads? No. Instead I put some tacks in the wall, then shoved clothes pins in the dinosaur heads and clipped the pins to the tacks. Who needs real hardware when you can have finger puppets on your wall?

Help me name him.

If I didn't love this dinosaur so much, I'd saw off his neck and tail to make head/tail mounts. Then, I'd ask him to hold my necklaces or perhaps a jacket. But for now, he'll just carry my rings.

Pow, Pow, Pow.

I'm not so sure how this trend started,but now it's hip to wear brass knuckles. I walked into Forever 21 unarmed and came out boasting flower power for $2.80. We'll see how they fare while typing tomorrow.

Wire Balloons in the Windows

I'm going to put mannequins in my windows and dress them up in leopard just for fun. But really, the wire balloons in this window display are lovely.

Hey Megan, why is there a giant ad on your blog? Did you sell out?

Those are great questions. This is an experiment with The Poppy Project.

If I can somehow get the whole three people who read my blog (and everyone they know) to hashtag their tweets #CoachPoppy and #JustinBieber, we’ll win a $2,500 Coach shopping spree. Also, rumor has it that some prizes will pop up in the pattern, so you should probably keep looking at the pretty flowers to your left.

But Megan, where does #JustinBieber come into this?

Each player in the Poppy game picks their own hashtag. I chose #JustinBieber because as we all know #JustinBieber is Twitter.

If and when I win, I will make it my life’s mission to get Justin Bieber to sign the Coach bags I buy. Then, I will auction them off to a rich 12-year-old girl (or her parents) and donate the proceeds to a charity. What charity? I’m not sure yet and am open to suggestions.

So if you’re down with my plan to help the world with purses signed by the Bieber, please tweet. You can even tweet right from the handy-widget ad living on my blog, just make sure #CoachPoppy and #JustinBieber are in it. Tweet now, please.

Goodbye Bag Tag

Last Christmas Poke NY gave me a Freitag bag, way better than a coffee cup or cupcake sampler. I’ve finally decided it’s time to trash the bag's sweet tag. But first, I had to make the tag immortal by feeding it to the Internet.

If you’re thinking about buying a Freitag bag, I say go for it if you have the dough. But keep in mind, when it’s really cold out the bags shock you for some reason, and strangers will ask you why you're carrying around a giant bag. But really how much can you ask from an old tarp, some bike tires and a seat belt?
