The Smiths

When Alex and I first started dating, I'd go over to his Brooklyn apartment and we'd drink wine and order dinner. (I remember always getting insane butterflies when I walked up the stairs to apartment! He would lean over the banister to say hello, and I would get all heart-pound-y.) Anyway, he'd usually put on music by The Zombies, Love and The Smiths, so I thought he might appreciate these clever limited-edition prints.

Oh my goodness! I remember heading over to Rob's apartment when we were first dating with butterflies in my stomach, and he'd open the door and my heart would start pounding and I'd get dizzy.

Occasionally, I still do.

Thanks for the reminder!

p.s. These prints are gorgeous.

Those prints are beautiful and I also love Smiths. That is such a sweet post...I remember getting the exact same feeling when Balazs and I first started dating...awww...Great reminder
Thanks

Joanna Goddard said...

haha, amber, i know! isn't it funny that you think that every little thing you say might make them either fall in love with you or fall out of love with you? it's all so dramatic at the beginning!

Maggie said...

Perfect, perfect, perfect.

(from a fellow Smiths lover.)

Melissa Blake said...

I love the Zombies!! :)

Suzie said...

the smiths is my favourite band everr! i named my cat morrissey in honor of well Morrissey. also, it's so and i quote "isn't it funny that you think that every little thing you say might make them either fall in love with you or fall out of love with you?:

lisaroyhandbags said...

love these prints - the smiths were a big part of my college years! :)

Notes from Holly St. said...

the beginning of a relationship is so intense and magical...i love thinking about the early dating years with my husband and all of those heart pound-y moments :)

p.s. LOVE The Smiths!

Suite Henry said...

My husband is a big Smiths fan too. It took me while to understand that Morissey's voice is actually hauntingly beautiful.

I found this cool print of a typewriter with a single sheet of paper that reads "Listening to the Smiths."

You can find it here:

kbd said...

hmm! nice and creepy. Love it! (the prints, not the um, start of your relationship!)

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

I still get butterflies around my husband. He gets so mad when we argue or fight because I just start smiling and laughing. I can't help it, I just am so excited to be around him.

Have you heard the "She and Him" version of "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want...." Awesome.

Helen said...

Oh my, as a book lover and smiths fan I NEED this.

Miss Hothouse Orchid said...

If you love the Smiths, you should check out the Sons & Heirs (they are performing on Halloween in Brooklyn!) They totally rock and the lead singer looks like Morrissey. Pretty cool. The Radio Head Tribute band that's playing with them is great too!

Oh that's cute. And, I LOVE The Smiths.

isabug said...

That is so sweet. It's true too - the drama is intense in the beginning! It's all worth it, though :)

Heather said...

butterflies, the best feeling in the world! oh, love the smiths, too!

Bren said...

I love these prints, especially "idle hands!" Gosh, I was obsessed with the Smiths! Isn't it funny how music is so intrinsically tied to our memories? The Smiths always remind me of my brother.

annelise said...

Great prints!

I was recently stopped seeing a guy because I wasn't getting those feelings. They're SO important!

Meredith said...

I just love looking at album covers. Joanna, take a look at a few of the album leaf's covers (http://meredithlockhart.blogspot.com/2010/10/album-of-album-leaf.html). they are simply wonderful!

carina said...

How sweet. Yes, the beginnings of relationships are wonderful, but it's probably practical that the relationship changes with time. I'm not sure it would be either healthy or possible to be in that whirlwind of emotion all the time. You would never get anything done:-D

But oh the memories....

Megan said...

Three of my favorite bands. Your hubby as very good taste, naturally.

Xox.

alex said...

my boyfriend sebastian is a big smiths fan and he was the one who totally introduced me to them. Early on I snagged his smiths tee shirt, which is a tad oversized, and I wear it with skinny black jeans all the time. I love it, especially because it makes me think of him when I wear it.

Stacey said...

I love The Smiths! I used to listen to them a lot in my early 20's!
These posters are so so pretty!!

cateoh said...

My poor overworked husband is going away tomorrow and so to brighten him up a little I caved in and gave him a small Christmas gift early (the Carnivores and Destructors fanzine). These posters look like a fab replacement to go under the tree! Thanks

amynicole said...

you and alex are so cute! i love reminising about the begining stages of courting and marriage! those memories seem like they're in some other era.

Ciara Obscura said...

These are pretty darn phenomenal.
I saw Morrissey play live once (even after a friend warned me that the show would, inevitably, be cut short for some reason or another), but after 42 minutes a guy jumped on stage to hug him and Morrissey promptly curled up like a baby- his forty three body guards came rushing out with blankets and carried him crying off stage. Wish I was lucky enough to have seen The Smiths play back in the day instead. Maybe he was a little tougher then.

But these prints... wonderful.

Choose a pattern for your agate earring.You can just grab random agate beads and have an entirely random pattern if you like, but most necklaces are made based on a predetermined pattern. Even if you use a random pattern, your agate pendant will look more professional and finished if you place small spacer or seed beads between the agate beads.One common and simple pattern is: three agate beads, one accent bead, three agate beads, repeated throughout the whole necklace, with small spacer beads between every agate and accent bead. Lampwork beads
