Today's Favorite Quote

My 19 month toddler is going through sleep regression with his naps. Yes That's right. Refusal to rest because he may miss something like Hugh Jackman coming over to play. (Hey, I have to fantasize when I am frazzled.) I understand that for his growing little mind it is hard to comprehend that when he wakes up, all things will be there and he can continue playing and living life. So while he panics thinking things will happen that are so exciting he must scream so he can stay up and not miss them, Mama would like a very stiff drink.
The good news is after howling like a wounded harpy he finally nodded off.
Mama still could use a drink. A Bloody Mary or Gin and Tonic would be best. Send Hugh to the front door with it please.

Last night I remarked to my husband how this quote absolutely applies to me.

"I write a little every day, without hope and without despair." - Isak Dinesen

Gotta keep your humor at all times right? I am now going to bust into a bag of Ghirardelli milk and truffle squares in place of the much desired alcohol.

These Gin Marinated Olives from 101 Cookbooks would be a nice treat.



  1. 19 months - you need alcohol. Yesterday, I met two generations of babies that began to walk at 6 and 7 months, and one of them has a 3 month one which is showing the same tendencies. I met them in a pub...

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…
