Wrist, writing and (w)rescue

So this is De Quervain tendinitis which is what's wrong with my wrist. I have to keep my wrist splinted and rested as well as take ibuprofen. So my hubby gets to do my emails and posts - lucky him, ha ha!

Thanks to Westminster Dog Show I totally love the Tibetan Mastiff. Westminster also partnered with the charity Angel on a Leash.

And thanks to my continued unemployment, I have been reading a lot: right now Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell is the top book. I am also registered at Daily Lit and am reading Mansfield Park. I have also been watching movies and probably have a career as a movie critic at present. I just watched Night Nurse with Barbara Stanwyck and Clark Gable. This movie was made in pre code Hollywood - what's pre code you ask? It's before religious and moralistic people got upset that adult situations were played out on screen. Drugs, sex, etc. were corrupting our youth! it's actually fascinating history and there is a whole documentary on it. Check it out if you can.

If you can please donate to the Red Cross for the fires that have ravaged Australia. While we're talking about Australia have you seen the kind firemen who helped the koala? It is good to know there are still decent people out there!

Cheers,
Fifi

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…

Irish pensioner living in a 280-year-old cottage with no modern conveniences

Irish pensioner who lives like we all used to back in the day. Good for her. Read here.

Sometimes it is best to disconnect. To get back to the land, to remove ourselves from the news, read a book, or just take a walk and be present.

Side note: I have to admit that running water and flush toilets are my most favorite inventions so camping is clearly out for me. :)

Have a great day.

Cheers!
