Fabulous Art

The husband and son are off to the doctor this afternoon because the little one still has an off and on fever and the husband sounds like Kathleen Turner. I am much better, though the residual cough sucks, but I can actually function. Hurrah! I will take little man to his appointment while Daddy goes across the hall for his. Note to everyone: If you or your family members have colds, but decide to have the party anyway, please let others know so they can choose whether or not to attend. Thank you very, very much.

Just came across this article on a Tumblr and had to share because I find it to be beautiful and very clever. I am an art whore and proud to be one.

Portraits of a Daughter in the Style of Old Master Paintings

This little girl has a future as a Muse, I can feel it.

I am happy to say my novel is now in RollApps version of Open Office and I feel somewhat like a functioning writer again. Formatting has to be fixed, damn Google Drive, but it is not too bad. I feel some relief and I will be sending it to Dropbox for more safekeeping. I am hoping to get it up to snuff to send over to my friend who knows of my wretched delay. Technology sometimes seriously sucks. Wish I could write things out longhand, but then it eventually needs to be typed into some program right? Ah well. I do have to move my Angel of Death story too, but anything else I start, will be done on the iPad in iAWriter. And that is that.

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.
Here is a stunning Craftsman Renovated home for sale in Bellevue, WA via Hooked on Houses.
I don't knit gloves or mittens, but these Podster Gloves


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…
