My husband is taking such good care of me while I'm sick. He just made me the best egg drop soup. Love him!

a few more finds

It's hard to find these dishes, I'm glad I found this one

now if i could just find some place to put these
I had to get this just because it says hiking on it

A little project

Sew I needed a little something to keep my crotchet needles all together. I sound so granny like saying that. Yeah well I am old so F*%# it! I move my crotchet stuff around all over so I end up losing them all of the time. I know this isn't an original idea but I put my own special twist on it by putting the turquoise ribbon on it (I still have a crap load of this ribbon from my wedding). I found this vintage fabric at the thrift store and although it smells a little even after I washed it twice I still like it. You'll see it pop up from time to time.

Shop Update!

I added a few new items to The Shop. Check them out and let me know what you think---pupupuhlease!

I have been in a very 1970's mood lately. I switch back and forth between a few different decades, 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990 to present although I am rarely here in the present. I like to float around in my own little world.

I added four new Bohemian Feather Hair Clips. Two are black & hot pink & the other two are tan & white with turquoise feathers. I think this last one would look good on a blonde; it would blend in well although it contrasts nicely with dark hair. You don't have to wear them like I have it you can clip it in however you like. I was thinking of adding a few more simple feather hair clips to the shop as well; hopefully soon!


Hey, I have to use myself as the model because I can't afford to hire one, okay?
You see I love these because when I was little I use to play with the real deal (roach clips) all of the time. I obviously didn't really understand back then what they were really used for. I just thought they were pretty. They were something I saw often as a child growing up with my single mom. We had a pretty bo-ho, gypsy life back in the day. Not that I am promoting smoking pot with these beauties but the thought of smoking it up in style is kind of funny. You won't be able to get these around a doobie (do they even call them that anymore?) very well but they will go in your hair quite nicely. Think of them as the "virgin" "drug free" roach clips. Ha!

Shampoo anyone?

Can some people not smell their own heads? I hate it when you walk by some dude at the grocery store and you can smell their greasy head. (homeless people excluded)

As a girl we're told not to wash our hair everyday which is fine and all but after a few days YOU KNOW WHEN YOU NEED TO WASH IT!

If I can smell your head and you're standing in the personal hygiene section of the grocery store and instead of picking up a bottle of shampoo you go for the toothpaste I am going to squirt that tube of toothpaste all over your head and send you out of the store with a kick in the pants.

Wash your hair!!

50's house wife inspired apron

I don't fit the house wife mold very well and that is okay with me

Here is my first sewing project with the new machine. I am so excited to finally have finished it. It was so easy. It's made from a tea towel so there wasn't a ton of sewing that I actually had to do.

Weekly Confessional

I wish I had the cojones to shave my head.

I'm scared of getting brown spots. I have a few and they bother me worse than the gray hair I have.

I am also not thrilled about cleavage wrinkles. Those really suck.

Don't mind the quilt trip

Okay people I really need you to buy something from my shop - my husband doesn't have a job!! Hello!

I am working on a shop update but the weather is not cooperating. If the sun is out tomorrow morning I will be able to add some more items to the shop. It will be very different from what is in there right now. I am really excited about it.


before & after

so this isn't a DIY before & after but it's funny
one perk to not having a job u can do whatever you want with your hair

Ty is practicing his drums in the living room. I am attempting to drowned the sound out and crossing my fingers we don't get a visit from the po-po.

Steele Days 2010

We had fun this year at Steele Days. We ran the 5k and did pretty well, I mentioned previously we both won prizes that ended up being nice bday gifts for my dad. We ran with my mom, our sister-in-law and nephew. He had it pretty easy being pushed in the stroller and all, lazy bugger. Okay so he's only 10 months but that's no excuse. I don't have pictures but if you want proof I can take pics of the medals they handed out BEFORE the race even started. Lame-O's.

We went to the car show & the carnival. They have the best corn dogs EVER. I have not found any others that compare. The carnival during Steele Days is a fantastic time to feel good about yourself. All of the crazies that hide out in their meth labs during the rest of the year come out. I am not kidding about this. Ask anyone who lives there or grew up there, they will attest to that. It's rather entertaining.

Growing up my mom drove a VW bug almost just like this one. I was really, really young. 

 Hagen & Fred making friends

 We rode on the tail gate small town style

In Jr. High I threw up on this ride all over my friend Josie Covington and then ran all of the way home because I was so embarrassed.
