Street Treasures

Monday, April 27th, 2009

For someone who professes to love all things vintage I sure don’t share a lot of my treasures with you.

Take photo, put photo on computer, share photo? Not that hard, but sometimes, well….

It’s pure laziness, I tell ya.

Anyway, here is my latest acquisition. Found on my very own street, free for the taking.

I’d love to use this in a laundry room for all our towels and sheets but there’s that whole thing about not having a laundry room. I guess it will sit here in our dining room for a while until the perfect place opens up. The shelves are a bit unstable so I can’t just put dishes or really anything heavy on them. Any ideas?

A Glorious Weekend to All

Friday, April 10th, 2009

Lots to do in the next few days and just the next few days to do it all!

I guess I should be grateful for my Zella alarm clock that gets me up at 5am? Yes, thanks Zella. I’ll get right on that To-Do list.

Have a great weekend everyone!

That’s Odd

Honey, I really love you, but I think you just ran in to the house with our car.

Everything ok out there?

Update: everything is fine, though house and car did indeed collide. Swell!

Update 2: we had a good laugh about the new scrape on the car and then we danced in the kitchen to Come On Eileen.

A good day!

Fingers: A Satisfying Meal

Monday, April 6th, 2009

Walking around the house on a sunny Sunday afternoon, surveying the mess, picking up, planning to make new messes, thoroughly distracted.

I look down to check in with Zella, all snuggled in the carrier in hopes of keeping the cranks at bay.

She had found her fingers and lulled herself into a happy sleep. So incredibly sweet that I just had to get the camera and try to capture it from my vantage point.

And from the front:

Dinner is Served

I never stack them up like this but I have to say, this was supremely satisfying.

I wrote this the other day and for whatever reason (pancake gods are out to get me?) it posted to my about page. Odd. And also hard to find. Here it is in all its cakey, syrupy, stacked up glory.
