Another Nice Day

The last two days have been in the 60's. And they say there is no Global Warming...ha!
What is really nice is about this weather is being able to open the windows and air out the house. I just painted our kitchen so being able to get the fresh air in has been a plus. I painted a color called Almond Oil by Valspar. It looked beige-y on the car d but it has an undertone of blush/pink depending on lighting. Honestly, it looks nice and it is not a painful neutral which is good. We chose to paint because it was a blah, poorly done pale green and we both hated the faux brick back splash. I will never understand certain trends, fake brick being one of them. The kitchen looks MUCH brighter now which is great. Of course when it gets professionally done that will be nice, but for now, we both like the result from the paint and can live with that without issue.

Google Drive and I are getting along better. I still have my issues with certain functions, but I am learning to work with it best I can. My writing is happening more at night, but I am getting some of it done when my son naps which is choice.

And now some random things.

I like this Basic Chic Hoodie from Chic Knits.

Indelible Ink Workshop has some lovely prints for sale in their Etsy shop. I found out about them through the website Small Town Living.

This tiny violet hand muff falls under something I would aspire to knit, but most likely never will. I do love it though.

This article on The Kitchn about 5 party appetizers that won't break the bank are great, but the commenters have wonderful suggestions as well. Currently the links are funky, but hopefully they fix that ASAP.

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…
