Care for a Cuup of Tea?

If I only drank tea; maybe if I had this lovely contraption found via A Cup of Jo. Love it.
Tonight would be perfect with a glass of wine, a good book or movie and a roaring fire.
I have none of these things.
I have only sleeping cats.


Some of my favorite embroidered things from Mr X Stitch and Feeling Stitchy
Have a great weekend!

Tuesday Color Addiction

In this new year, I've decided to change things up a bit and reorganize how I'm blogging.
Mondays: Music Monday
Tuesday: Tattoo Tuesday
Wednesday: Braids
Thursday: Color Theory
Friday: Inspiration

Although today is Wednesday, I am still posting this!

Today I have rounded up some of the greenest things I could find. I love the color green. Its fresh, calming and it makes you feel alive :) Those silly faces are some of the best people in the world!!

Green: of the color of growing foliage, between yellow and blue in the spectrum: green leaves.
immature in age or judgment; untrained; inexperienced: a green worker.

This week Ill try to take some photos of my own for next Monday's Color Addiction!

PS I was in a contest on Run With Scissors where I entered a picture of myself showing some sort of peace sign. Check out the site to see me photo!

Vintage is my Middle Name

Believe it or not, I scored some really fabulous stuff today on an accident. Jen and I stopped at a wonderful antique store in Mt. Healthy that I had gotten a lamp from about two years ago. I saw this puzzle and absolutely had to have it. I don't know why but there is something about it that I just love. Then I say all this fabric and guess what, it was half off! My lucky day! And that pin, its from when Kennedy and Johnson were running for President. Yes. I spent ten bucks on the lot! Its a deal. Swear :)

I also saw some really pretty doilies that were very tempting but I decided to pass them up. I couldn't think of anything to do with them at the moment and felt that justified not buying them.
And there was a whole lot of pyrex dishware that I would die for but it was not in the budget.

Crafty Things

These are my latest crafty adventures:

In 2009 as I said earlier I decided to do Ali Edwards' December Daily Journal and here are some of the pages from it..they are not all finished but I'll put the rest up whenever I finish them.

I made a bullseye at Sundy's!

I like this page the most
Another night at Sundy's..another favorite page!
A little monster I made while I was trying ro make a catfish. My new little art corner. These are things I like to look at. That's an old Reefer Madness poster! Awesome.

Buddha "helping" me make curtains

My silly idea to make curtains..I rather love them


Some things are better unsaid. In a blog, however, they should be written daily....well maybe not that often...

So I haven't blogged since September. I know I've been neglecting my bloggy life but I guess I just got caught up in my real one. But from now on I'd like to make a promise or at least an attempt to blog my feelings, craftiness and goings on. To start off the year right I'm going to list some things that have been inspiring me this week.

This awesome bedroom
This arrangement of cute things. I can't remember where I found this so I'm sorry about not having a link!

Making this cake would be so awesome.

I want a tattoo of some ladies like this around my wrist or on the side of my hip. It's kind of weird but I've never been one to follow the norm :)

I love this mantra and I love all the prints of it and i LOVE the idea of making one myself, my handwriting and my own...that would be pretty cool.(Inspired)

Tomorrow I will update on the things that have been keeping me busy during December and January and things that I need to finish!

Love :)
