What, are you kidding me?
These are just some totally random things from this past weekend, but I did have some non-yarn related moments so: We went to Arnold Palmer’s restaurant in Palm Springs, it was really cool with a big putting green we sat next to outside, in the perfect weather. We got seated and our waiter brought us …
I’ve sorta figured this out
Pretty huh? It took me a bit to get to this though. Last weekend the real goal of the girl trip Sciarrino and I took out to the country was not vintage finds, but stocking up on dying supplies for the dye-o-rama swap I’m in at Woodland Woolworks. I got two each of yellow, blue, …
To the “golf is not a sport” people:
O.M.G. I am so sore after nine holes it’s frickin’ ridiculous. But to start at the beginning: Thursday we headed down to California, to my dad’s "winter house" in La Quinta. I was down here in October, remember? So of course I waited until the last minuet to pack because I like that whole fear-of-god …
Can you believe it? This is like my first page in forever. I had a lots of fun organizing my new (old) card catalog and messing with my supplies always makes me want to create. Details here. I also did one of the Harry Potter book release here.
Yes I’m alive. My mom was actually not that upset. She doesn’t want to worry that much about it, and wants the counters to have "character" COOL! Of course she hasn’t seen it yet since it’s covered so… Bj like your bookmark?
Just Shoot Me Now
Go ahead. I probably won’t be alive anyway when my mom sees this:Remember how I said we were getting our kitchen redone a bit? New counter tops, stove, sinks, blah, blah. Well it’s mostly done (we still need new knobs and wallpaper), it was finished right before my mom and Bill left on a spring …
There is no soap, no soap like Zaz.
Love: My mom’s new sink Hate: Walmart. Well you knew that, but more specifically the boys got me a set of wire brushes there and the cheapo things couldn’t even last a whole lid cleaning session. I so do not understand the concept of buying cheap things that don’t last. Annoying.
I love me some vintage.
Love it, love it all. Clockwise from top left: Super cool letter game with neat vintage chipboard letters; X-Files card game, it’s the starter pack and Sciarrino and I can’t wait to play (okay maybe this one is not THAT vintage, but hey); awesome apron with kick ass fabric (see the picture of the day …
Elements of Correspondence
The whole card holder part actually sits on a really long shallow drawer. I covered the face of it with paper, ripped out the old ribbon tab and replaced it with ribbon jar ribbon. Like I said, you need to make one of these, fun, fun, fun.
