Dreams and Doings

So, the other night, I had a bizarre dream with Tom and Katie Cruise. Not sure why, there was nothing on to influence me or bring them into my head. I hardly keep track of them and I am not necessarily a fan of them or all their work. This happens at least once or twice a week where I have a dream with some random actors/actresses, and then the inevitable happens. A movie of theirs or TV show with them will come on in the next few days. Kinds creepy, yet kinda cool. Too bad I cannot do this with lottery numbers! Then I think, maybe there is more to this...perhaps I should be acting! Folly? Yes, but like I said this happens so much I have to wonder, is it my calling? Was I Sarah Bernhardt in a past life? Should I attempt Voice Over work again or send my photos into the people at Ugly Models? Perhaps I should just finish that damn screenplay and stop horsing around with it. I say this because some of you know I entered a short fiction contest through American Zoetrope, Francis Ford Coppola's company, but failed to win. That is ok, he just has not read my genius yet. I am not sure where I will go with this kids, but you are on this ride with me and it should be fun and funny.

Random Tidbit Time!

Jennifer Siegal is an interesting architect who was ahead of the game when it came to eco-design.

Need free samples? go for it, mama got her free sample of Pamprin and is very happy.

Have those expensive things called kids? Hand me downs is dedicated to help you find free second hand items for babies and young children within your local area.

Hugh Laurie of "House" and a few other actors formed Band from TV who do shows and raise money for charities of each actor's choosing. The best part is that the band kicks ass!

Speaking of Dr. House, want to know how your area hospitals rate? Go here.

I end with real estate and how I love it so. This time Ridgewood, NJ is my locale of choice.

Goodnight my dears, sweet dreams.

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.

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…
