Back to the grind and interesting home decor

What a whirlwind!
Good food, good times and now, back to the daily grind.
My battery has arrived which means I am typing this post from my little net book. Whoo hooo!! I hate to admit this, but I was a very, very crabby person when I was sans computer. My poor husband probably wanted to hop a plane to get out of dodge when I snapped. Of course I used our other computer and worked, but it is always better to have your own equipment. How many times can you interrupt fantasy football you know?
It is sad to admit that I rely so much on technology to do a task many have done with quill and parchment. Then again, I believe Shakespeare would really dig working on a computer. He probably could have cranked out even more works!
Anyway, I am hoping to get another query letter out by the end of the week to start the New Year off right.

I just came across this Cast Iron Hands Dish Towel Holder and I am speechless. I live to see that in someones kitchen, I really do.

Keeping with the odd, eclectic home stuff theme, this Hippity-Hop Lamp from Anthropologie is pretty weird. Bunny lovers will dig it, though I think it looks ominous when lit up. I do like that when you scroll over any of the lamps, you can see what it looks like when turned on.

Scripture Tableware called Feed on the Word. Now that is all kinds of awesome.

I have no need for a stand alone mailbox, but I dig this from Dalhaus.

For the Scarface movie lover in your life, a lamp. Yeah....

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…
