getting older means tourist traps, yes?

My friend L is visiting me this week, helping me to celebrate my birthday (which was Saturday the 7th) in true style! She brought her Cassiopeia Spice, Clementine July, with her.

We roadtripped to Kansas City, MO to see Eisley and on the way back, we went through Carthage, MO to visit their little junk and antique stores. I always really like to go to them, they're full of charming/creepy old stuff...

We also went to the notorious Precious Moments Chapel, which has to be seen to be believed. Aury and Clementine, being rather precious themselves, came along into this strange vortex with us. It's really impossible to explain just how creepy this place is... it gives me what Kathy Griffin calls the "church giggles." However, for a connoiseur of kitsch and creep like me, it was a hilarious thing to do on my birthday!

Showered in preciousness...!

When we got home, the table was all decorated for my birthday... it was so cute!


  1. Happy Belated Birthday! How great to spent with friends and Blythes :D

  2. Happy belated birthday! Those big Precious Moments peeps are totes adorbs! I collect them, well, trying to not collect anymore as I collect too much. But, I do love them so and I'm not even religious, haha!

  3. Thanks so much, both of you :) I'm so sorry I responded so belatedly. May was jam-packed!

    I'm not religious either, but oh boy, I just love cheesy stuff like Precious Moments!
