Hope everyone had a good weekend. To all the Mom's hope yours was especially lovely. I spent mine with the hubby and kids. Friends brought dinner over Saturday night which was awesome and yesterday the hubby cooked. Also awesome.

I did get all my planting done and will take some pictures soon. Some of the my Victory Seeds wildflower seeds have begun sprouting and I cannot wait to see what grows. We also went and picked up some impatiens for the porch and other areas. I need something that can survive shade and not need me to fawn over them. This flower is it. Of course I need to water the all and my hubby bought a flat of them. I have 4 containers of them as well as 12 little buckets and a "troth" of impatiens. Yeah, he got a little excited. He also picked up three cucumber plants because we eat them a lot in the summer. I also planted my zucchini seeds, just six, and dill. I am hopeful all of it will grow, but one never knows in our odd, rocky soil. I composted the hell out of the garden so I am hoping that helps a lot. I will probably add more too.

Other than that, things are moving along nicely here. I have not written much, but that is just a sign of it getting warmer and me needing to get child out of the house to get fresh air. His little class ends in two weeks and that leaves us with just swimming. That is fine, but like this am, we will be hitting the park a lot so he can climb and swing and play with other children. Plus a hardcore nap means mommy can get some things done.

I have been watching the cartoon series "Archer" which at first glance did not seem that funny, but holy offensive humor I was wrong. LOL The show is certainly not for anyone who finds lewd humor, sex and undertones of anything a cause of the moral degradation of society. But if you enjoy that kind of demented humor, by all means check the show out.

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.

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…
