GIfts

We have had a lot of birthdays of all ages these past few months.  Because of this, I have been searching for interesting gift ideas. Sure the standard gift card or cash or bottle of vino is always welcome and thoughtful, but sometimes it is nice to do something unexpected. I like good finds and so without further fanfare, I share some goodies I have found that I think can be wonderful gifts for various occasions.

This wood bowling set from ACME Party Box Company is a terrific idea for young kids or hey, even young adults.

Purl Bee has a wonderful pattern for Roll and Dash Hankies which can be a nice hostess gift or for a bride or bridesmaids.




For the baker in your life or all around displayer of goods of any kind, these mini pedestals from Rosanna Inc are delightful!

As a tea lover, I am digging this Rocket Tea Infuser from Kikkerland Design. With a nice package of tea of a jar of honey it is a lovely gift.

We also have an upcoming housewarming and for that we got a gift box of spices for the recipients at Savory Spice Shop in Princeton. There are various locations through the country and may I say their Lavender Vanilla Bean Sugar is wonderful!! I am also a fan of their California Citrus Rub to use on fish.

Of course, Martha Stewart has one of the more unique gift kits I have ever seen: A Flower Arranging Gift Kit. This is definitely suited for someone who grows flowers.

Sure you can make your own soap, but in case you are not that skillful, I know I am not, Mirasol Farms has this great gift of mini-bars to offer a guest, a friends or even yourself.


Have a great weekend everyone!!

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…
