New Etsy Listings


Just listed some treasures on my Etsy shop.  I don't have very many things for sale anymore and I'm trying not to have too much 'stuff' in my house but...

I LOVE the thrift stores and I find things I just can't leave behind!

My Thought Today

My thought today needs no photos.  My 8 year old grandson told me yesterday he is scared of nuclear war.  The US and Russia specifically.

No child should even know that.  No child should say that.  On one hand, it makes me cry.  On the other, it makes me really angry.

Not one politician, not one non-progressive voter, not one person in power should be remotely proud of themselves.

Actually, I do have a photo for this...


heartbroken,

Current Obsession - The Art of Leonora Carrington

I've just discovered the artist Leonora Carrington, a surrealist painter in the 1930's.  Her life was as amazing and interesting as her art.

Pinterest Inspiration

I like to browse Pinterest while I'm having my morning coffee.  So inspiring!  Here are a few things I found today that are going on my 'try it' list...


Roasted carrot soup.  You've got to love it when simple things you already have on hand blend together (literally!) to make something delicious.



Speaking of blending, the same blogger, Erin, recommends this blender.  It comes in a ton of crazy colors and is a fraction of the price of the you-know-which-blender I just can't bring myself to spend the money on...


Great.  Like Vegetarians and Vegans don't have enough to worry about.  If they find out vegetables feel pain we're really in trouble.


Turn an old dresser into a backpack and shoe holder.  Brilliant!  Two things that are always in the wrong place.  Wish I had room for this one.


I have this cute retro food poster framed in my kitchen.


Then there are always the Pinterest "noes".  That's the plural of no, I looked it up.


I want a purple door!


And, my daily inspiration quote.
