7 Things

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!  ♥


  1. Okay, where do I start...
    I wanted to be a vet for a while too when I was younger. I never worked for one but my boyfriend did and he couldn't handle all the pets that passed away. :( Makes me sad just to think about it.
    I love the Zeitgeist! Such a fun place and the fries are amazing.
    I work in visual display for a department store. Your window looks great!
    I'm strangely into prison and crime stuff as well. But somehow I've never been to Alcatraz. I REALLY want to go on one of the ghost tours.
    And last but not least I have family that lives in Madrid too! I've been to Spain twice and would love to visit again.
    It was so nice learning all these things about you.

  2. omg-- we're like sisters! plus I forgot to mention, I'm a Libra too!!

  3. hey completely cool! so funny some of my friends always bang on about Zeitgeist, must get there one day! thanks so much for passing this on and I shall do the same....Amy x
