Name That Font! featuring JUNK GYPSY

I come across so many interesting looking fonts every day - on the web, on tv, in magazines, basically everywhere! Being the curious type, I like to investigate and figure out what typefaces are being used in the things I am seeing.

Today, I stumbled across the Junk Gypsy collection on the PBteen website. There are some cute items in the collection, but the main thing that caught my eye was the Junk Gypsy logo.


I needed to know font that comprises the "Junk Gypsy" part of the logo. After a quick visit to my favorite font ID site, WhatFontIs.com, I discovered the font is a modified version of the Appleton font by Decade Typefoundry.

As you can see, the part in the middle of the characters that flares out has been removed and bottom of the "p" has been altered, making the logo look more streamlined and cleaner while retaining that boho retro vibe.

I do like Appleton in its original state too!

R.I.P. Shirley Temple...

I was hoping this day would never come. For as long as I can remember, I have loved Shirley Temple. She was such a big part of my childhood. Watching her movies sparked my interest in all things old Hollywood. I always hoped to meet her someday so I could tell her how much she meant to me as a child. Alas…

Rest in peace, Shirley. Thinking of you and your family today…

Disneyland Forever CDs

My Disneyland Forever CD

Does anyone remember when Disneyland had the Disneyland Forever cd kiosks back in the late 90s? I loved being able to make custom cds with Disneyland music and/or sounds of my choosing!

From the back of the cd:

When guests recall their day at Disneyland, their first thoughts are probably of the attractions and environments that they have seen.

But of equal importance are the sounds that they have heard. From the call of the train conductor at Main Street Station and the exotic pounding of jungle drums in Adventureland to the richly layered soundtracks of its famous attractions, the sounds of "The Happiest Place On Earth" play a key role in the Disneyland experience.

To commemorate more than 40 years of magic, Disneyland® Forever offers a rare selection of classic Disneyland soundtracks. Here is your personal collection of musical memories to enjoy today and in years to come.

With special thanks to all the Imagineers, past and present, who have created the timeless sights, sounds and music of Disneyland® Park.

This compilation is dedicated to Jack Wagner, known to millions as the "Voice of Disneyland."

The Bee's Knees Peanut Butter


This is seriously the yummiest peanut butter I have ever had!

From the Peanut Butter & Co. website:

Our all-natural peanut butter blended with scrumptious honey. The Bee's Knees is a delicious new way to enjoy our peanut butter. You can really taste the honey in this new variety, which promises to become a new classic in sandwiches and snacks across the country. It contains no cholesterol, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. It is also gluten-free, vegetarian, and certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union. The shelf life is 6 months after opening, if stored in a cool, dry place.

You can buy it online for $6.00 each. I have found it in grocery stores in my area for a few dollars cheaper. The Peanut Butter & Co. sell other super delicious flavors too, like Cinnamon Raisin Swirl and Dark Chocolate Dreams. I am looking forward to trying them all someday!
