In Honor of…Well, You Know

July 16, 2011

We have a couple of real Potter-heads here at the Blowhole, so for us, and many of you out there, today started out with monumental excitement followed by a super downward slope of depression. Post Potter depression–the worst kind.  All we can do is scrape together any reminders we can find until Pottermore is open, or J.K. creates a Potter encyclopedia.  I’ve put together a Harry Potter theme shopping post in honor of today. Note: these items are not official HP items, they are just things that remind me of the world of the books.

Let’s Hear it For the Birds

November 22, 2010

On Thanksgiving I sometimes feel a little guilty for eating the turkey, being quite fond of animals after all, but it really wouldn’t be the same without it would it?  Plus your fat a*s  uncle Larry or Carmine would have no excuse to get tired and passout before dessert, leaving you to the pumpkin pie. So, really we owe it to the turkeys for giving us a very lethargic holiday. I’m Going to give thanks to the turkeys this year by doing a very turkey themed shopping post.

Shoppin’ Post. Hazzah!

July 13, 2010

Why? Because I felt like it. Could I have done a post on something else? Probably, but I was in the mood to browse, and annoy Mike with a shopping post. Did you like that little ‘mini answer the imaginary viewer’s imaginary questions session’? good stuff.

Art in Anticipation of Summer

May 6, 2010

Another Art post. I know some people probably find these boring and pointless, but I think art is awesome so give me a break.

Much like the last artist I post about, I don’t know much about this one. She has two etsy shops one for her paintings called nARTa and one for her black and white photos called natsona. All I know is that whoever she is, her paintings make me miss the beach and long for a fruity beverage for some reason.  Art effects everyone differently, which is why I like it…

October 29, 2009

How do you like that alliteration? Those who know me will agree that I don’t dress very fashionably, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t look at clothes and wish I would make the effort  to get dressed up. That being said, it is time for another round of awesome items i found online–in this case clothes. Lets start with Etsy shall we?
