Vintage Hair

If I had more time and in some cases, the nerve, I would rock some of these vintage hairstyles pretty hard.

Bobby Pin Blog is all about these hairstyles as well as retro makeup.

A for Awesome!

Now if I could hone my sewing skills and work up a dress like this:


I would be all good to go out now wouldn't I?

I have been toying with cutting my hair. Currently it is down to the middle of my back, the longest I have ever had it, but it does lack some style. I do have some awesome curls though and a few that are natural banana curls. I have had short hair most of my life so I am not keen on going all Annie Lennox. Honestly, there are not many women that could carry that short cut besides her and my friend Filomena.

I do love certain bob hairstyles, but I have no desire to become a slave to my hair dryer either. I admit I am envious of those with straight hair that can pretty much do any hairstyle they want. I would bob myself like Louise Brooks in a heartbeat, but alas it would not work.

This does leave me without any idea of what to do, but I am sure at some point I will see something and go "That's it!" Rita Hayworth would be wonderful to emulate but let's face it, it ain't easy to be "Gilda".




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.

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.

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Irish pensioner living in a 280-year-old cottage with no modern conveniences

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.

Cheers!
