Well ... here goes

I've been meaning to start this up for some time now.
All 4oo million of my Google Reader blog subscriptions are devoured daily and I often think to myself 
"I did that, I made that, I flipped that, I cooked that & my dog is cuter than that...(ha!)"
The title of my blog is simple at that, I snip hair during the day and snip and sew clothes in my free time. I very much enjoy cooking / baking, and messing with my food processor (i.e. creating dips). & I am in love with fetching and flipping weather it be furniture, vintage home decor, clothing or hell, and upright old-school arcade games.
Anyway, here goes, and here is a little about me,
I live a beautiful life in Tallahassee Florida and share a gem of a home with my sweet, handsome, and talented boyfriend, Aug, and our recently rescued, deaf-old-man Chihuahua, Papi Chulo. 
We are not small dog people (Aug is a previous owner of a Saint Bernard) but Papi fell right into our laps (literally and figuratively speaking ... story to follow soon I'm sure) and he is an absolute angel.
I'm a Masters graduate of the Aveda Institute and have been styling, coloring, and cutting hair in Tallahassee for about 5 years now and am also a make-up artist. 
I love my job tremendously.
In my spare time I loooooove thrifting and junking (no expensive vintage shopping fo' me pls).
I reupholster, refinish, and re-love old furniture. 
I have a slight obsession with mid-century lamps.
I nickel and dime my way through the flea market and love the thrill of a good find. 
I also have a potted vegetable garden on my patio that has recently be subjected to the Florida heat and wilted away (minus the almighty banana peppers!) 

WELL, enough about me ... let's get this baby ROLLING
(Tomorrow, I'm pooped)
