Movies and a Meal

In the past few weeks I finally got to see two major classic films I have always had on my list, but never got around to watching. Ironically, both pictures starred Jack Lemmon. First one I viewed was "The Apartment" and I LOVED it!! Loved Jack and Shirley MacLaine and everyone else in the film.

The second movie was "Some Like It Hot" and I am ashamed I have never seen it before because it was a pretty good laugh riot.

So we are due for some big time winter weather tomorrow. Snow, snow and yes, more snow.  I normally do not mind winter, but for some reason this year, I am pretty much over the bitter cold and want to see the daffodils. Not yet MissFifi, not yet.
Anyway, winter does mean delicious, hearty meals and with that I figured I would share a few soup recipes that I have not yet tried, but hope to at some point.

Sweet Potato Quinoa Stew with White Beans and Spinach from Dishing Up The Dirt looks so yummy and warm.

Fat Free Vegan has this tasty looking Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup. I want a bowl. Right. Now.

Frank at Memorie di Angelina posted a recipe for Carabaccia (Tuscan Onion Soup) and it has my mouth watering. Just hand me a loaf of bread and a bowl and leave me in the corner. Thank you.

Have a good evening and if you are in the line of snow like me, stay warm and safe!

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.

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.
