Just A Bunch of Stuff

Between the loss of life in Texas and Massachusetts this week and the ongoing search for the suspect in MA and for bodies in TX, life seems more fragile than usual. All those people and so much heartache. Overwhelming is such a small word at this time. Anger is a big one. For those of us who are merely bystanders to all this chaos, it is unsettling and outrageous, horrifying and baffling. While people send good vibes and prayers to those affected in both places, we all know Boston, MA and West, TX will have a long way to go in the healing process and I wish those cities and their residents the very best of intentions.

Hard to now veer onto less serious topics, but life does move forward in a sense.

Gardenista has an interesting post - 5 Delicious Ways to Eat Flowers  Everything looks so delicious and beautiful.

The Sweetest Vegan. She takes Paula Deen's recipes, "Hello, do you want butter with your butter?" and McDonald's recipes and vegetarainizes/veganizes them. I have to say the recipes look amazing and I cannot wait to make the fried avocado fries. Hey, I never said it had to be completely healthy. ;-)

A Coconut Lemonade recipe comes from Veggie Belly. Refreshing indeed.

I do not crochet, but wish I did. The Sweet Home Sweet pillow pattern at Purl Bee would be a nice project and would look so good on my couch.

We just lost power due to the rain storms and our generator is on so I must sign off before the internet goes. Have a great weekend.

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…
