Continuing to amass useless info...

but it some ways, it is good I have someplace to post it all!
  • I can across this fabulous English home design site. It is quite wonderful.
  • Wanted: Graphic artist who is also a delicious baker? Look no further than CPB Gallery.
  • Looking for something different to do in NJ/NY area? Visit New York' s outdoor sculpture park Stormking. After that head to Hamilton, NJ to the amazing Grounds for Sculpture.
  • Need good advice during these tough times? Check out Total Candor's blog.
  • I want an Aga range and I want it now.
  • Bellissima Modesty Boutique carries cute styles and at a ridiculous low price. If you order from them, let me know their quality.
  • Daa glass, beautiful stuff, have seen it in person, get yourself a piece immediately.
  • Candied clementines from VeganYumYum, I want to see how many I can shove in my cheeks!
  • "Who got a bath??" make sure you scroll to see all photos
  • The ergo baby carrier is the cutest thing I have ever seen, though I doubt they make them to hold multi-multiples.
Which leads to the following rant:
Yes, we are a PC world but you know what, I am about to go against that and say this only once. Why has no one questioned the ethics of the idiot doctors who allowed a single mom with 6 kids to have In vitro and use 8 embryos? Did she have the requisite counseling and psychological profiling done before hand? Do we really believe a single mom with 6 kids is the right person for octuplets? Is anyone?! Now, she has tv and book offers...why?? To encourage rampant, reckless breeding? I call bullshit. I am sorry, but enough is enough. We still do not really know long term effects of IVF let alone having your uterus maintain a litter and this woman wants to be a childcare expert? I am sorry, what mental defect was missed? Great you want to be a mom, but you live at home at 33 years old, have 6 kids and want more? VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME!! Go be a nursery school teacher, a day care provider, do something but DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT think you will fill the empty hole in your life with 8 pups. Has anyone asked her who will care for these 14 children if she dies?? This is beyond selfish and the medical community should have stopped her somehow, someway. Big Brother? Sure, this is when you need it most. Okay, enough of that let her go with God for now.

Peace, Hugs, Cheers and Cheesecake,

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.


In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
