Bon Weekend – Lighting Ideas!

Michael and I were in Lowe’s yesterday and I veered into the lighting department. I have been thinking about the possibility of mounting a sconce on the wall above the Jane Avril poster to highlight this corner of the bedroom, especially at night or in the grey weather like we’re having now. I’m glad I went online to find photos of what we saw in person as two weren’t in stock in the store and I really like them. I not saying which ones though.

Anyway, I would love some feedback as to which would look best or if this is even a good idea.

I really had to bump up the light in this photo as it was almost dark in the room this morning.

Bon Weekend!

I’m off for an extended weekend celebrating dear Aileen’s birthday, which is today! We’re constantly saying that when we grow up, we want to look as fabulous as these two ladies, Aileen being on the left and me on the right. In reality, we’re not far from our goal.

Happy Birthday Husky, I love ya!

Bon Weekend!

Ooops, it’s Friday again. It’s been an incredibly hectic week and I have a few posts saved in draft mode but I want to share them so I think I’ll just post photos and quick links here…

I cannot believe it’s Friday! Here’s to wishing we could gather with our friends that have been snowed/iced in all week in a more desirable locale.

We’re working on the pelmet box for the bedroom and I’ll post photos of those next week.

Bon weekend!

Bon Weekend – Happy New Years Eve!

Time to close the first decade of the new century. I mentioned in a post a couple weeks back that it has been both a heartwarming and heartbreaking year, but I believe we’re firmly planted in the right direction. I’m looking forward to the future!

I’m just about to soak the black-eyed peas for Hoppin’ John tomorrow, and I hope you have a wonderful, fun and safe new years celebration!

Bon Weekend – Dreaming of a White Yule/Christmas

Snow for the holidays in Charleston? It has happened before! If my memory serves me right the last time it occurred was just after Hurricane Hugo, and it snowed close to a foot. It was UNBELIEVABLE. Bohicket Road never looked so beautiful, nor did downtown.

We’re fast approaching the close of another year, depending on which calendar you use. 🙂 These next two weeks will most likely be gone before I know it. I’ve recently applied for a position that I would really, really love to have. That’s all I’m going to say at this time as I’m very superstitious about overly promoting that kind of stuff. I may have even said too much by posting here but what the hell, perhaps I need to throw caution to the wind this time. I have completely abandoned making new products for my Etsy store even though many Etsy members have had faith in my work to feature me in Treasuries. To all of you, my most heartfelt thank you. I’m looking to January to reinvest myself in my work and brainstorming to come up with new ideas for products and how I present my work.

Michael’s birthday is on Monday. I’m very excited and we’re celebrating it tomorrow. We decided to have Monday be a celebration for him and my father. Everything is supposed to be SUPER SEKRIT, minus him knowing we’re doing something tomorrow. Hopefully noting else has slipped. I haven’t been able to resist a little tease here and there for the past few weeks.

Bon weekend everyone, I’ll see you on Monday!

Bon Weekend.

I’ve been a big fan of Groupon since they arrived in Atlanta. Tyler signed up for it and has gotten some great deals. The service arrived in Charleston several months ago and I have yet to take advantage of offerings…until today. I miss many, many things about Atlanta, and going to the High on our family membership is high on that list. Yeah, I went there. I’ve been thinking of getting a family membership to the Gibbes but honestly have not been able to justify the expense until the offer today for half the regular price. Museum visits once again!

I also hope that in the next year we can take advantage of a class or two at the museum school. I took a pottery class in ’93 and loved it.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Bon Weekend

It’s beginning to feel like the holidays around here! We finished taking down the Thanksgiving decorations earlier this week, and sadly, I didn’t get any decent photos of the beautiful job my mother did. It became incredibly busy and I didn’t have time to set up the tripod and what I did snap wasn’t so good. Anyways, we unpacked all of the ornaments yesterday and got a good start on the rest of the inside of the house. I can’t wait to see how everything develops over the next several days.

The chandelier is far from ready, but I’m happy with the direction. So far.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Bon Weekend – The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee

Happy Friday! This just melts my heart…Willamena Bouvier.

not all kitties can do this

I was sent a link to this photo on I Can Haz Cheezburger. The original photo came from the The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, which is a foster/adoption organization for orphaned kittens from the Tacoma/Pierce County Humane Society. They care for the kittens until they are old enough to be adopted, and then find loving homes for them. ♥

Have a wonderful weekend!

Bon Weekend – I pulled a Clark Griswold in the attic this week…

I had to take five from this project I’ve been working on in order to move stuff that has long needed to go up into attic before family arrives next week. It has a tricky little walkway from the main landing to a wider open area for storage. Now, I’m not sure who the braintrust was who decided to give the walkway a narrower plank, but not 15 minutes after I gripped I slipped and my leg fell through the ceiling, right next to the light/fan housing. Good news is that I missed a metal piece protruding from the light box that easily would have sliced open the back of my leg. Bad news is that we’ve had to cut out part of the ceiling to patch it before my uncle gets here next week.I’m going to have a whopper bruise on my inner thigh.I’ve been laughing my ass off since.

If only I had been wearing my headpiece, gloves and coat while I was traipsing around up there!
