gold standard


I dragged myself home halfway through the day yesterday with a crazy headcold. It's been awhile since I got sick, and this one threw me for a loop! I got some pho and watched When Harry Met Sally, though - and today I feel GREAT. One of the nice things about being couch-ridden for half the day was I got to poke around the bloggies! I'd been meaning to delve into Oh Happy Day as it essentially has all the things I want: pretty pictures, someone living in Paris, good taste in clothing AND... pinatas?

Don't get me wrong, I loved a good pinata and the rain of sweets that it produced back in the day, but I haven't really though about them since the fifth grade. Jordan, being the genius she is, has brought me back. This precious DIY golden alligator pinata drew some serious "OH FOR CUTE"s from me, albeit in a stuffy, tired voice. Mark my words, I WILL make this pinata, and I will hang it in my apartment and I will name him Frank.

But in the meantime, I will do a drawing of him wearing a top hat!


  1. Eating pho when you're feeling a bit under the weather is always so soothing. And I still to this day love pinatas. That alligator one is cute but I have to say I love the original donkey pinatas.

  2. i hope you feel 100% today. i am thinking that pho and when harry met sally could cure pretty much any ailment! um, when you make that pinata, could ya make two, please???
