Wacky Wednesday

I am feeling a little kooky. Yeah, that's right. No rhyme or reason here in Casa Fifi today. Maybe it is the fact that the weather has been so choice and will be even warmer tomorrow. Whee!
Our little one just got 4 vaccinations. Ouch! And we have the oil folks here doing the yearly maintenance to the furnace. Aren't contracts fun??
Because of all this, I am just going to post a bunch of things that have caught my eye and no, I am not going to discuss the topic du jour, the book 50 Shades of Grey. Boo yah!

Mike Joos has created these fun and interesting prints and I think I want one or two. Look at Salvador Dali, how cool!!

This place is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too small man.

I love hand stamped jewelry and perhaps, one day, I can get a cool one with my little bundle of joy's name or initial. Cause that would be how I roll ;-)

Fun bohemian space!

Even though Neil Gaiman and I have the same views on how writing makes us feel, let us remember that has his won places to write in seclusion, meets Stephen King and makes the big bucks. One day Mr. Gaiman, I too shall be the bomb.

I like the doors. They have a cool Moroccan vibe.

Portobello Street makes these unusual refrigerators that look like furniture with a retro vibe. I dig.

These fridges by Meneghini just blow my mind.

Curd falls under jam for me, I do not make it, but I will eat it if someone else does. This Ginger Grapefruit curd looks delicious.

Have a fabulous day.

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…

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…
