Our House - Before and After

My grandson found our house on Google Earth and I couldn't believe the difference.  We've owned this house for almost a year and given it a lot of love!


Before


After

Our house is certainly teeny and unassuming by Houston standards but we like it.  It looks much happier now, don't you think?

In The Conservatory

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a conservatory?  I LOVE these indoor/outdoor rooms...








Time to watch Practical Magic again...

New Listings

These new listings on my Etsy shop have me feeling a bit keep-y but I'm really trying to stay more SIMPLIFIED so I'll resist...




Really cute seventies canister set







Have a beautiful week-end!

I Could Really Use A Potting Bench

I think I'd like a potting bench.  I'm not one to run out and buy much of anything full price though - I'm more of a hunter-gather and make do-er!   Hopefully now that I have the idea in my head, I'll find something...

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.
