Last week, my fellow bloggers Islabell of A Fine day for Sailing, Analise of the Hummingbird Girls and the lovely lady at A Certain Vintage, were kind enough to pass on the "Versatile Blogger Award" to my little blog here. Along with the award were the instructions to name 7 things about myself, so here goes... and thank you so much for thinking of me, ladies! ♥
My first love was animals-- I wanted to be a vet for several years-- but gave that up after I actually worked for one. This is my old dog, Daisy who passed on two and a half years ago.
My best friend and I had an unhealthy obsession with 2Pac in high school and college (ok, kind of still do!). My husband is amazed that I can recite an appropriate 2Pac lyric for almost any occasion.
Speaking of husbands -- I've been married for two and a half years to my Irishman, Damien. We met at Zeitgeist, (a local outdoor bar) on one of the last hot days of the year in 2003. I never knew how much I loved bald men till I met him! :)
I had a real fascination with Pope John Paul when I was about 11 years old. I was so excited when he came to visit San Francisco in the 80s and clipped all the newspaper articles about it and put them in an album. He had a bullet proof "popemobile" that was pretty sweet by the way.

I worked in visual display for a local retail chain for many years-- till I was laid off at the beginning of the recession. Custard Heart Vintage came into being shortly thereafter. Yay!
|this is one of my favorites-- it takes place in San Quentin in 1967|
I love most books and movies having to do with prison. So I of course adore Alcatraz and love taking my out of town guests there. If you come here call me and we'll go! :)

I'm of Spanish descent and still have cousins in Madrid and Mallorca and have spent several summers there. One of my favorite places in the world is a little town called Deia in Mallorca.
There you have it, 7 things! I'm now passing this award on to Libby of Vintage Aplomb , Katie of Mitu Vintage, the little lady over at Vintage Seen and Maria of Adelaide's Homesewn. Can't wait to learn more about you girls! ♥
