My to do list grows

My husband and a friend went and got our couch last night. It looks really fantastic and now we just have to decide where we want to actually put it. For now it is where the orange couch was, but it is not staying there since it is against a radiator. I also need to go purchase some Scotchgard to help protect the couch.

I started this week out very well as I had a massage client. Always nice to work on someone and get paid :) I need to drum up some more business and start looking into the hospital systems again. Someone suggested the VA Hospitals and I would love that, but their budgets are worse than private hospitals.

Our kitchen is one of the few rooms I like, but the cabinet hardware is atrocious and there is none on the bottom cabinets. Two of the doors on the upper cabinets are cracked, so one day we will need to replace all of them, but for now, I would like to get some nice hardware and paint the walls. It will brighten it up, especially when I check to see if the wall is okay behind the faux brick back splash and if so, I will take brick down and paint the wall. If not, I will paint the brick. Good times.

I need to work on my nephews blanket tonight and some other stuff up in the office. There are two art pieces I need to finish and I need to rearrange some more stuff up there. I also need to get back to writing since it has sort of been on hold the last few days. Maybe after some knitting I can work on that which would be really nice.

I really need a thirty six hour day sometimes.

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.

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 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…
