Seeing stars

I found these paper clips during a multi-store search for plain, silver thumbtacks earlier this week and just couldn't pass them up.

I adore stars, in all forms, from the two-dimensional five-pointed doodles I perfected in high school to the giant balls of gas that light the skies at night.

My big plans for the weekend involve an Etsy/West Elm show here in Austin tomorrow, and then an Oscar viewing party on Sunday. I really only watch the Oscars for the clothes; I have very little invested in the actual awards. Also, it'll be interesting to see if/how Banksy shows up at this year's event, since he's a nominee.

What are you doing this weekend, hmm?


  1. I love those stars! What a great find!

  2. Not going to lie, seeing if Banksy will show up is the main reason I am going to watch the Oscars.

  3. these stars are SO CUTE!

    and will banksy show up?! and will we know it?! or will it all be a hoax?! oh that man of mystery is awfully intriguing! :)

    have a great weekend!

  4. Those are some stellar clips! I'm looking forward to watching the Oscars too!

  5. OH HEY btw, did you see the TeeFury shirt SNITCHES BE CRAZY

    A friend put in on my fb wall and i thought of you - i would have bought it but it was gone by the time i saw it

  6. I got the stars at Office Max, for those of you who might want to get them too. I realized after the fact that I'd forgotten to say that. :)

    Rachel-I did! I wasn't a fan of the typeface, as silly as that sounds. I did love the thought, however.
