Poop, film and a few links to knock out the kinks

Where we live people fail to pick up their dog poop. This is absolutely infuriating. When I walk our dog, I have to constantly maneuver around the various piles of fecal matter left behind by lazy ass owners. Izzy needs to run in the grass because her condition gives her a sort of curled paw, so grass is more comfy. I constantly have to pull her out of it because there is fresh, a few days old and decimated poop. I am not sure why this is so difficult for people. Walk your dog and bring a bag. It is disgusting and nasty and shows no pride of your neighborhood. As my friend always says, "People are shit" and in this case he is correct. PICK IT UP PEOPLE!

One the best and most overlooked actors of our time is James LeGros. He has been in films like Scotland, PA, Living in Oblivion and the amazing Showtime miniseries, Sleeper Cell, which everyone in it was incredible. I hate that the same boring actors and reality show dredge is always getting props when this guy is fantastic. So James LeGros, I salute you!

  • One of my favorite movies ever - The Sure Thing
  • When we have a house, I will have a garden and yes, I will have a sublime shed.
  • Want to see something other than a Disney produced nightmare on Broadway? Let the talented actor, "Rocco" give you the 411 on his blog What's Good/What Blows in NY Theater.
  • Art can get boring, everyone has a Monet or Van Gogh reproduction. These authentic museum street banners from are the bomb!
  • When I have money I am joining a yarn CSA.
  • A doctor in the NHS has some interesting stuff to say.
  • This would be a nice little vacation home in Charleston SC
  • The PBS American Masters documentary about Jerome Robbins is simply wonderful. Watch his Wedding/Bottle Dance in Fiddler which is mind blowing.
Cheers my dears, until we meet again,

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.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.
Here is a stunning Craftsman Renovated home for sale in Bellevue, WA via Hooked on Houses.
I don't knit gloves or mittens, but these Podster Gloves


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…
