Welcome to Monday :)

The hubby and I went on a wonderful eight mile, round trip mind you, bike ride on the Columbia Trail yesterday. It was beautiful, tranquil and made us realize we seriously need to invest in padded bike seats.

Other good news is the on Saturday, friends of ours in Vancouver had a baby girl and on Sunday, friends of ours in Texas had a baby boy. This is all very exciting and one gift has already been sent and now we need to send the next one.

I was so excited to see Surefit slipcovers for wingback chairs and ottomans. I especially liked the Lexington one. So I measure and lo and behold, our chairs are bigger than their covers. Now the quest begins again.

We have also decided when we redo our upstairs bathroom we want to go with a round corner shower.
The one that is in there now is only like 29" long but the wall is 34". The new shower will fit better and I won't knock myself on the head every time I try to shave. Ha ha

I want to throw a dessert party like this one at In Pursuit of Glamour.

Had no idea that Queens Anne Lace and Poison Hemlock look similar. You learn something new everyday.

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…

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.
