'Tis Sunday and I have things to share

(thank you to Alberto Vargas)

Hello my beautiful people. Our house hunting continues, our dog's blood came back fine, but now we must take her to the neurologist, good times, and I am trying to think out of the box and see what my path shall be. A lot going on that can distress me, but I am doing my best to not let it eat me up.
Beautiful gestures and things make people smile. In my present state of mind I feel the need to seek out beauty and artistry A LOT. It soothes my anxiety and gives me perspective where I lack it. The arts have always been a comfort and so with that thought I roll out what needs to be appreciated. Be it flowers, jewelry, locations, beauty is everywhere.

The Winterthur Estate in Delaware beckons you to relish the stunning gardens and enjoy the Brandywine valley. I really would love to take a weekend jaunt here.

Natchez, MS looks relaxing and interesting. shopping, down home southern cooking, even though I am a vegetarian I have no issue with recognizing others' desires to eat well prepared meat, historic beauty, this may have to go onto my list of places I need to see.

Vintage Kitten a blog that always makes me want to look glamorous and have a cocktail!

Staying with the kitty theme, the jewelry by Cleo and Cat is fantastic and bold. I covet their cuffs and rings.

Artists can be quite a boon to depressed areas. They come in, rehab a neighborhood, others follow and then BAM! a revitalized town. Detroit is probably one of the hardest hit areas in our nation. Design 99's Powerhouse Project is hoping to bring life back to this hard hit city. 20/20 recently covered these artists' story and here is the video as well.

Everyone loves homemade pie. I myself, would enjoy a piece of pecan pie right now, but alas, it is late and I am in no mood to bake. If you are in Durham, NC though, you lucky kids you, you can go to the Durham Farmers Market and get your hands on pies made by Scratch . My fave thing they offer is 4 weeks of pie for $65.00. There is a God, and he likes pie!

Cheers!

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…
