Twinsie Tuesday | Arthur & David

A recap post of the Cleveland Flea will be coming this week, but first let's talk Twinsies! On Friday night we did a private event at the flea for media/bloggers and the movers and shakers around town... and apparently famous actors too!

While standing in my booth, I gaze down the aisle to see a very tall, David Denman... you may know him as Roy, from The Office. OR for Parenthood Fans like me, Ed, the stay at home Dad who's gotten quite friendly with Julia.

Oh my gosh!! What is he doing here? Is he from Cleveland? Does he have friends from Cleveland? Shouldn't he be taping his next episode for Parenthood? Oh my gosh... he's coming this way! Maybe he'll want to buy my pom pom rollerskates! Oh no, stupid, why would he want those? Oh, I know, maybe he'll want a scarf, he may not be used to this cold weather... 



Turns out, after asking for his autograph, it wasn't actually David Denman. Ha, just kidding, I didn't actually embarrass myself that bad. Turns out this is Arthur from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. He was nice enough to take a picture for me, and Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream was nice enough to provide free samples all night. I tried the sweet corn and black raspberry. WOWZA!

I posted Arthur's pic on Instagram and asked who people thought his Twinsie might be. Of the 2 guesses so far, both said Seth McFarlane.


What do you think? David Denman or Seth MacFarlane?

**Thanks for being a good sport, Arthur! And thanks again to Jeni's for the samples!!

Cleveland Flea: Modern & Vintage Holiday

Just one more day 'til the Holiday Cleveland Flea! I promise you, it's going to be magical!! If you follow The Cleveland Flea on Facebook you've probably seen some of the amazing sneak peek photos shot by Suzuran Photography. To see the entire Cleveland Holiday Flea Look Book click here. It will make you want to start decorating (stat!)...






...throw a holiday party...


...wear a vintage dress (and start rockin' hats)...




...bake (and eat!) artisanal food...



...decorate your tree with colorful vintage ornaments...


and DIY wrap all your presents! 


I was really excited to be a part of the photo shoot -- not only did I get to preview the vendor's wares and do a bit of pre-shopping-- like buying this vintage skatebord from the Gallery by Dick Russell!(Shhh, it's for C's 5th birthday)...


...But I also got to meet some new friends, stuff my face with fritters, bagels and apple cider mimosas, try on some vintage dresses, help style the shoot (and learn from Steph!), and quite possibly the best part of the day... makin' it rain pom poms!



The Holiday Flea will take place INDOORS at the Slovenian National Home (6417 St. Clair Ave) on November 23 & 24 from 10-6. Click here for a map. Vendor shops will be in the main hall and pop-up shop, and the NEW Underbelly Market will be located downstairs where you'll find craft beer, food, cocktails and edible gifts. All are also encouraged to experience the ambiance of the outdoor courtyard which will be brimming with fresh cut christmas trees and handmade wreaths. I'm serious - you don't want to miss this! 

Hope to see you there! If you're not local but want to experience a little of this weekend, follow me on Instagram -- somethingtoebfound -- I'll be posting pics all weekend!

Twinsie Tuesday: Jake & Joel

A few months ago we got rid of our cable and have been using Hulu to watch shows. Or in my case, show. Aside from a few episodes of Breaking Bad, the only show I consistently watch is Parenthood. It's usually a toss up  between Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Sarah (Lauren Graham) for my favorite character, but Joel (Sam Jaeger) worked his way up a few notches with his drunken performance in the grocery store bakery. Unfortunately there are no YouTube clips of it so you'll just have to go watch the whole episode. In the meantime I'll leave you with this:
