So, I cleaned up some of the gargantuan mess, and I puttered around. I hung some stuff up on the walls, which is always soothing and satisfying somehow.
Come on--come putter around with me.
Let's start with the kitchen:
|I FINALLY, after three months, hung up|
that fun callendar featuring BIRDS.
Three months. Sheesh.
|Oh I loves me some BIRDS|
|I also finally hung up this fun clock my dad gave me, |
which he got from some business
colleagues from France. Look! More birds!
|they all get along nicely with my little birdie|
salt and pepper shakers.
Best bonboniere from a wedding EVER.
|The fireplace teapot was a gift from England.|
|I call her the Guardian Of The Kitchen|
Off to the bathroom, AKA: my other favourite room in the house...
|I'm so pleased: I found a frame for this fabulous|
birthday birdie card from my lovely friend Leanne.
But I'll tell you about THAT in a minute...
|now NIGHTLIGHT KITTEH can stare at the birdie...|
|super fun nightlight kitteh, charming Peter Rabbit clock,|
wicked awesome ridiculously ornate little vase thingy, and
fab smelling soap from a frou-frou shoppe
|I mean--check this thing out! Do you know I got it from|
a second-hand store for like two bucks?
It says "Made In Italy" on the bottom.
|It's so yummy, I want to BITE it|
|A gift for baby Jack, from England|
|I have a clawfoot tub, so I had to buy this miniature|
|This picture is called "Bath Time At Becky's". |
You HAVE to have SOMETHING ridiculous in your life.
You just have to.
|lovely little mosaic art was a gift from a|
lovely friend when she went to Italy
|Sigh....I really like my bathroom.|
I wish I could hang out here all day.
It's one of the few rooms in the house that's totally tidy.
And the DAY BEFORE...guess what?!? A PACKAGE ARRIVED FOR MOI!!!
Do you know my friend Leanne at One Odd Duck? I met her here in blogland. One of the very best things about blogging is all the wonderful, lovely, hilarious, smart, endearing, fun people you meet here.
Leanne is a character! She's hilarious, compassionate, and kind. And she seems to like me. Anyhow, she sent me a box filled with goodies recently! I haven't been this excited since my beloved Sherilinnie sent me a Christmas card with a hand-cut paper snowflake, with a delicate man-parts motif. SNIFF!
* A WICKED AWESOME BIRTHDAY CARD that says "You Are A Rare Bird"
* a super fun necklace that has a bird on one side, and a rose on the other. I have decided that the bird is a ROBIN, because I FREAKING FREAK for robins. My sister tried to tell me that it isn't really a robin, and even though I agree with her, IT'S A ROBIN, CAPICHE???
* a jar of yummy-nummy vanilla goat's milk lotion, and goat's milk soap, made by a farmer near Leanne. How cool is that?!? Wait--how cool and GREEN is that!!!
* a feather boa!! AAAAAAAH, FREAK OUT! I wore that thing as a necklace, a crown, a headband, and a boa almost immediately.
* a pair of crazy sexy fun black, embroidered long fingerless glove thingies.
Wait...why the hell didn't I take a picture of the glove thingies, but instead took a picture of the packaging? Truly I am an idiot.
Everything was wrapped and labeled with the kind of funnitude only Leanne can provide. Look!
|LURV it. LURV IT ALL.|
Thank you Leanne. That was so touching.
OH but waaaait a minute....
there's something else in that pile...
Hrm, I see a photo of one hawt woman in a RED DRESS...and...I see that same RED DRESS waiting for ME. Do you know about THE TRAVELING RED DRESS? It's a really good story...
ARE YOU INTRIGUED?
GOOD! But, you'll have to wait.
Stay tuned...that red dress is coming up soon!
