Linus was reticent to discuss his fascination of The Great Pumpkin with his friends. And really, who can blame him? It wasn’t a popular subject. Even his sister, Lucy, thought he was crazy.
“That stupid blockhead of a brother of mine is out in the pumpkin patch making his yearly fool of himself.”
Linus, may I give you some advice? Don’t let ‘em get to you. That pumpkin patch is full of fall goodness and ready to be enjoyed. Get on in there and knock yourself out.

I love exploring Lakewood. You never know, on any given day, what you might find. Be it nail salon, beading store or authentic thai food, Lakewood has it…but keep your eyes peeled. Sometimes they’re located on the streets less traveled.
I drive on Skillman daily. But rarely do I venture all the way down to where it dead ends at La Vista. Thankfully, on Monday, I did. Much to my delight, I found yet another Lakewood gem. Lakewood Consignment Studio caught my eye…and I’m fairly certain my quick lane change and last minute turn into their parking lot made a screeching sound like the one you hear in the movies. As I enter their shop, my initial reaction was disbelief and weak knees. Two woven wicker, vintage Neiman Marcus chair sat before me. They were priced exceptionally well and if they would have fit in our little Lakewood abode, I would have immediately snatched them up. Read the rest of this entry »

Ahab Bowen, a Dallas staple for vintage clothing and accessories, might have closed their Oak Lawn doors after 35 years of business, but for those of us in Lakewood, there’s reason to celebrate. Owner, Michael Longcrier, isn’t getting out of the game completely. And that’s good news for us, folks. Looks like these one-of-a-kind gems will be heading over into our neck of the woods.
East Dallas hipster hotspot, Dolly Python, will soon carry Ahab Bowen’s eclecticassortment of timeless styles, keeping Longcrier’s dream and hobby, alive. Gretchen Bell, owner of Dolly Python and former Ahab Bowen employee, learned the business first-hand from Longcrier. The two are reuniting, giving vintage-lovers’ (and East Dallas locals) reason to cheer. Looks like it’s out with the old, and in with the…old. And I, for one, couldn’t be more pleased.

Real Vietnamese, that is. These noodelicious restaurants are popping up everywhere, quickly becoming a top (healthy) choice for food aficionados all over Dallas. Greenville Avenue is getting in the game with the opening of Pho is for Lovers. While it certainly can be for lovers, this family-owned, cozy eatery is a great place to go with friends, co-workers and family too! Their menu is diverse and includes authentic Vietnamese street food, but their specialty goes without saying. Pho, a national Vietnamese dish, is low in fat and full of nutrition. And this new kid on the block uses the best of the best – fresh, delicious ingredients served up in true Vietnamese fashion.
Authentic, healthy and delicious food prepared just for you in a cozy, family-owned environment. You’ll leave Pho in love.
