Everyone comes out swingin'

We saw the movie The Fighter yesterday and it was absolutely fantastic! Christian Bale and Melissa Leo totally deserve Oscar nods. Keep in mind, all the performances were stellar, but those two actors really stood out and that was not easy considering the cast. Let me tell you, I was on the edge of my seat during the fight scenes and I have not gotten that excited during a film in a very long time. I love it when Hollywood delivers, thanks to Mark Wahlberg's persistence. Yes, we have a very fine film out there people, oh we sure do.

My query letter has just been sent to another agent. It is sort of a weird process. I look at who the agency has published then review the photos and backgrounds of the agents and hope I choose right. I may work on making the letter more concise depending on the response I get. Apparently I have a two week window if she is even interested. I can appreciate that and I believe agents get back to you quicker then HR departments and normal business correspondence. HAHAHAHA! Yeah, note my nervous laugh everyone. Ah hell, who am I kidding? I am excited too, this is like an adrenalin rush in a way and I welcome it.

Newest book I picked up at library today is called Dogtown: Death and Enchantment in a New England Ghost Town by Elyssa East. Never heard of it until I saw it displayed at the library. It looked very intriguing and I like the sound of the actual history. I also feel it may be a little inspirational for an idea I have for another story. My ideas are lovely and flow with ease, written in a notebook. It is finding the one that can be executed into a 75K plus novel that is not always a straight path. More importantly is finding a damn good book to enjoy. Not always easy.

Well back to work I go. The Archangels need their story completed in this second novel of mine.

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.

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…
