It's Mad Hatter Day!

Posted on October 06, 2013 by | 0 Comments

quote

 

 

A very merry un-birthday to you!

Pull up a chair and have a spot of tea but beware of the sleeping dormouse.

Today we are celebrating Mad Hatter Day.

 

In John Tenniel’s illustrations of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” he drew a white slip placed on the hat of the Mad Hatter that read, In this style 10/6.”

So it is only fitting that we celebrate such an occasion on October 6th.

But don’t tell the Queen of Hearts she might have your head.

 

Mad Hatter Day is a day to celebrate this classic character and all his charming madness. Today reality is ridiculous and silliness is sane.

What better way to celebrate than with a cup tea? Why not make it a tea party? Gather your friends to celebrate this splendid occasion. Wear a hat that is fit for a hatter, and don’t be afraid to go mad. After all, the best people are.

 

Find your Wonderland.

Simply look at the world around you.

You might find that wonderland is not too far away.

 

“We're all mad here.”

 

Merry Mad Hatter Day!

 

xoxo,

Roo

Awesomeness!

Posted on April 30, 2012 by | 0 Comments

It's going to be awesome! Our all time favorite indie band from NOLA is coming to perform at Coco and Duckie! That's right Youth Sounds will be doing two sets for us! So mark your calendar for May 5th, 2012! Youth Sounds will perform at 11:30 am and at 1:30 pm  in front of Coco and Duckie!

A little bit about Youth Sounds....

The peaceful ambience that is Youth Sounds comes from an innovative brother and sister duo that understands who they are and what they have to offer. Hailing from the streets of New Orleans, Erika and Federico Mejia are self-taught musicians that gained experience in church choirs and developed their crafts by remaining artistically stylish.

The combination of Erika’s soft and whispery voice gliding over Federico’s piano leads and house backbeats on their debut EP “The Bit Parts” expresses the aptitude this duo possesses. Youth Sounds feels familiar and inviting in their effort to bring fresh melodies during hard times. Youth Sounds’ elegant appeal and dreamlike moodiness branch from their appreciation for art and film. Encompassing these ideals in their music captures the essence of purity in their craft. Take part of Youth Sounds’ journey at www.youthsounds.com  

In addition to the awesomeness that is Youth Sounds a TrollBead Trunk Show will also be running! There will be three different specials to choose from PLUS all Trollbead rings are 50% off!! So come in and say hi this coming Saturday!

Cheers Lovelies,

Duckie

There is nothing that gives more assurance than a mask.

Where there is no imagination there is no horror.

-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Hold on, man.  We don't go anywhere with "scary," "spooky," "haunted," or "forbidden" in the title.

 ~Shaggy from Scooby-Doo

Halloween is huge in my house and we really get into the "spirits" of things. 

~Dee Snider

A grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween. 

~Erma Bombeck

Eat, drink and be scary.

Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble.

~Shakespeare, Macbeth

The witches fly Across the sky, The owls go, "Who? Who? Who?" The black cats yowl And green ghosts howl, "Scary Halloween to you!"

~Nina Willis Walter

Happy Halloween to ya'll!

Till next time,

Boo!xoxo
