I Need A Good Laugh

I wanted to be a touch more chipper today, but I just found out a good friend who had been on unemployment for a very long time and recently got a job at a mortgage company, just got laid off again. The reason?

Rates are going up.

People are sh*t.

I can't even find it in me to vent at this point so I wanted to share a movie that has forever been in my top ten of all time favorites since my high school years.

I adore John Cusack. I feel like I grew up with the guy and have always wanted to do Thanksgiving with his family. Can you imagine just how cool it would be to sit between him and Joan??? While I do find him attractive, it is his acting that has always been stellar to me no matter if he is Gibson in The Sure Thing or Roy Dillon in The Grifters. Another terrific film you must see.
Anyway, I recently watched The Sure Thing again and even though I knew where I would laugh, there were scenes and dialogue I had forgotten about which made it nice to rediscover. It felt fantastic to just let go and watch Gibson's antics and relive the romantic/sexual angst we have all been through as college freshmen. So without further fanfare, kick back and watch a 16/17 year old John Cusack rock the screen.

    1. It is a shame he does not do more leading man roles. I could do with watching him in action. Oh God, I need to get out more!

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.

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…

Irish pensioner who lives like we all used to back in the day. Good for her. Read here.

Sometimes it is best to disconnect. To get back to the land, to remove ourselves from the news, read a book, or just take a walk and be present.

Side note: I have to admit that running water and flush toilets are my most favorite inventions so camping is clearly out for me. :)

Have a great day.
