Happy Holidays

Whatever you do and do not celebrate, I hope you enjoy it!
Staying the weekend at the parents'. Everything is great... except for the incredibly sad pet commercial with Sarah McLachlan in it. Sad animals, sad Christmas songs equals a sad Rose.
Cue the funny, pretty, cute pictures!

How delicate!

I LOVE dragees!

It's true. My mum is the only one that's able to text that too me and not get a cringe.

I love mercury glass. It's antique, vintage, amazing.

Picture therapy

Today was a haze in most part. Then it hurt towards the end of the day.
Best way to cure it is to snuggle up in bed and dig in to some good old-fashioned picture therapy.

Pictures are from shloobykitten.tumbler.com, nymag.com and (where I can easily spend HOURS) holymaurymotherofgod.tumblr.com.

Winter solstice

For those of you that, like me, had their view of the lunar eclipse interrupted by dense cloud cover, here's a video of this morning's events.
It was amazing!

The hurt

I HAD to reblog this.
My heart broke when I began to read this. Then broke a million times more as I continued.
Please reblog.
Please send help.

Please care.

Yes. Those babies are lying on concrete.

Yes. That bottle is empty.
Yes. Those are mosquitoes & flies swarming their little bodies.
Yes. This is the condition of Pakistan, at the moment.
A couple of weeks have gone by since the floods in Pakistan have flowed and the number of people effected by this are staggering & record breaking.
That is MORE THAN THE COMBINED TOTAL of the 2004 Tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and the American Katrina disaster.
How many of you knew about this? It’s a shame at the extreme lack of coverage on this horrific disaster. Pakistan is getting MINIMAL help.
Ignorance never ends, a recent poll was taken in America on whether if they would donate or have donated to Pakistan or not. 67% DO NOT wish or want to help Pakistan. 67%.
And as for the donations that are being sent… 60% of aid needed now, has not been delivered. Who has them & why haven’t they reached the public?
I was born in Karachi, Pakistan. My city is located in the south region of Pakistan (Sindh province). I can not fathom the words….The amount of hurt I am feeling.
No one is helping.
I try to blog about it daily…only getting a few notes or so..I post a picture of myself and in come the notes and comments. What I’m trying to say is, Please…take note of this. These people are innocent and now they are homeless and sick. Children are dying quickly due to the lack of care. People have drowned, crops are ruined..animals are dead, & homes are gone. It is being speculated that my city will eventually drown since it’s already low. The floods haven’t hurt my region yet but they have affected my friends & families home and so many other innocent people.
This picture breaks my heart..I want you all to look at this picture. What do you see?
Do you see terrorists? Do you see future killers? Do you see another plot against America? Do you see that in those mosquitoes that can possibly and most likely have left diseases such as malaria? Do you see harm in that empty bottle?
Extremists are the ones to blame, not Muslims. Why should we be left hopeless? We didn’t do anything.
And as for the Qu’ran burning this weekend in Florida, I believe….
The thought of that night makes me cry. Do you all understand the severity and ignorance of that act? Why isn’t anyone stopping them? My religion, my faith didn’t hurt you. EXTREMISTS DID. They are NOT religious. My faith is NOT a cult.
I don’t know what to do. I honestly don’t know. I’ve never felt this helpless. No one is helping, no one cares. Fuck neither do my own best friends know much about this.
Just look at this picture and think about what you’ve just read.
Help. Please.
If you can…I’m not asking for a shitload of cash. But please, try to donate. Donating to UNICEF will send aid to children. Donate to the Red Cross & the UN Foundation. I trust the most in these three foundations, they’ve actually managed to send and successfully help the victims. 
One-fifth of the country is under water; 20 million+ people are homeless. All I ask is for you to help a little and spread awareness.

A Polyvore wishlist

A wish list for now
A wish list for now by TuesdayRose on Polyvore.com
Here's my entry into the Polyvore wishlist contest:
Here's a few lovely items I'd love to get my hands on: a camera for my shutterbug mania, a vintage ring and glass beaded necklace for added sparkle and style, a peacoat in an amazing color to keep me cozy, gorgeous heels to strut about and a charming bag to keep all my goodies secure. Cozy, eclectic and fun.

Gifts for that vintage gal

This one of many visual lists I'm making as gift giving guides for hard-to (and not quite so) loved ones. This one is for the vintage gal in your life. The one that covets antique baubles and flowy gowns. The one that adores sparkle and class.

All I want for Christmas....

Each year, I try and do a 'Things I'd like for Christmas' list.
However, this year, instead of making one long post, I'll be sprinkling several posts throughout December. So keep an eye out!
Like every list, there are revisions and a few gifts return to the list.

An honorary knighthood, to be made a Member of the Order of the British Empire

That flask

In addition to making lists for myself, I will also lend a helping hand in searching for gifts for YOUR loved ones as well. Not only because I like looking at presents, but because making lists is my addiction.
