Quick Recap

I just like that the photo is of hats. Get it? Recap? I need to get out is what is going on and why I have been terrible at posting.

Saw The Hurt Locker and all I can say is WOW. Incredible film, you must see it.

I have now thrown the novel "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman onto my list of books that I am reading.

Rewriting sections of the infamous romance novel I have been working on, it is like a never ending edit session with that story. In a lot of ways that is great because I am able to improve the dialogue and structure, but at the same time I feel like I have lived with this book long enough and it is time to complete it and get it out of here.
One piece of good news is that I have returned to working on my other novel which would fall more under fantasy and is really starting to take shape into something interesting.

Went on a job interview, don't think I will get it, but that is okay. It was proof of how bad I do in interviews and how much I don't miss being in an office. Of course if I got a call to be hired I would take it and do the job well. Then I would call my fence guy and be a happy camper.

I have also been going to a friend's house around the corner to let their pups out every day so they do not soil in the house or in the crate. They are the most well behaved animals I have ever encountered. they do their business, they wait for their treats, then one goes into her crate and the other goes to lie down.

The gym has been treating me well and I enjoy the health benefits I am reaping as well as the social aspect.

That my friends is the latest, hope you are all well.

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…
