Pinterest, Mold Remediation and Food

I have succumbed and joined the site a few years late to the party.

I love it.

WAAAAAAAY more fun than Facebook and no annoying adds. This sign up happened because my hubby gets annoyed by my obsession with sending home design ideas to him all the time via email so now he can look at my boards at his leisure. Of course he will need to be reminded of that, but hey, it is all swell here in the valley. In case you want to check it out, here is the link.

We had mold remediation done yesterday in our attic. Good times. They did a great job with clean up and everything so you would never even know they were here, barring the huge pieces of plastic over the door and missing ceiling in our bedroom. Now we need to replace that and then we can repaint and get back to sleep in there.
The roofers need to come back because of some soffit issues they did not take care of unfortunately, but other than that, the roof looks fantastic and the mold is gone. Whoo hooo!!

These Spicy Sesame Sweet Potato "Tots" on Daily Bites look yummy, yum yum.

Excellent travel tips from The English Can Cook.

We used to do the all day Sunday dinner at my Aunt Louise's house pretty much weekly. I am sure these fried vegetables were at the table. She would pretty much cook anything and everything she had, all the while asking us to eat more. I am very lucky I am not the size of an Escalade.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

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.

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…
