  7. LOVE the shoes! Where did you get them? I'm looking for a pair of black lace-up flat boots for fall, but I can't seem to choose a pair.

    You actually got me all excited about the teacup candle thing, so I've been searching for teacups :) I feel it gives me an excuse to collect a few, since they won't just be collecting dust. I've been wanting more candles for awhile now.
