In The Weeds

"In the weeds" is an expression anyone who has waited tables is familiar with.  It means you've lost control of the whole situation...


Due to a very long list of things going on, I'm currently "in the weeds" in real life...


Hoping to gain a semblance of control and composure soon...


Sorry your drink took so long, they're backed up at the bar...

I wanted to totally agree with my friend Carol's points on 'the cow jumped over the moon'  this morning but I still can't comment on other blogs I guess.  Technical difficulties.

I also want to add a point my sister just made that a lunatic with a huge gun should not have been able to enter a club at 2 a.m..  ESPECIALLY a gay club when we KNOW there are crazy haters out there.  The club owner would be making a huge amount of money and obviously did not have the necessary security in place.

We're not able to sneak cookies and bottled water into the Cheer competitions my granddaughter attends because the venues want us to buy things there.

The argument in favor of guns is beyond ludicrous at this point.  Think about this - a homophobic loser with no weapon at all would be lucky to kill one person let alone 50.  How can you possible say that the gun doesn't matter?  You just can't.

The Boho Look and How to Get it - Thrift Store Edition

Some of the things that help give your home the bohemian look are just waiting at thrift stores!  No need to spend a lot to get that chill 70's vibe...


Baskets.  Lots and lots of baskets.  


Wood stuff.  I guarantee there will be a whole area of wooden 'things' at most thrift stores.



Vintage pottery.  Don't worry about getting full sets.  Just buy what you like and group it all together.


Like this.


Love these vintage paintings and prints!  There are lots of them at thrift stores and you get the added fun of seeing some truly awful diy art.  You'll see what I mean.


Brass candlesticks.  Easy to find and still very inexpensive.  Stock up!

In thrifting we trust..

What's Going On...

A few things I'm doing...


Starting on some single panel curtains for my Etsy shop.  Good for covering doors or as portals to other worlds...


Sewing tote bags with antique quilt pieces made by my Grandmother.  I had the idea of giving them to family members but I think everyone (except me) is too minimalist and wouldn't want to to be stuck with anymore 'stuff '...


Making pom-pom wreaths just because they're so fun.


I made this one for my Granddaughter with a sweet little deer from my dear bloggy friend Rebecca and just couldn't stop...


Thrifting - as always.  I found this old rocking chair in an antique shop.  More nostalgic than practical - I had one like it that I drug around to every apartment when I was younger...


I had to have this beautiful rose crocheted throw - even though it will soon be sweltering here in Houston...


Speaking of sweltering, I planted a lot of vegetables in containers.  Not sure how that will work out though - most days in summer I'll have to water them twice a day.  Already I'm not sure with what's up with the leaf edges of this one...

What I'm NOT doing - watching or listening to anything presidential related that begins with a T - head in the sand please.
