'you look like a doily'

oh 'reality bites', if i had a dollar for everytime i watched that movie in the 90's id be a rich gal!
its nearlys daves 30th! and for the occasion we are having a 90's themed night, yes! think grunge, 'friends', teen angst movies, oasis, spice girls, wearing lingerie outside (what was with that?) and all things 90's. needless to say we have been raiding everyones cd collections for 90's hits and have found some gold! hole, 'celebrity skin' now has residency in my car, and beck, 'odelay' has residency on my cd player at home.

so my question is.....'whats your favourite song/album from the 90's?'

i happened to be browsing etsy this morning whilst wallowing in my throat infected delirium and came across this very talented lady!
her name is anke weckmann and i think her prints are just so lovely! i especially like this one as it has a tree, (i like trees) a cat, (well i have two, they dont allways let me like them though!) and they are drinking tea, (i REALLY like drinking tea)
so....on the christmas list it goes!
have a wonderful week everyone! have fun, and laugh!
