New House Update!

Soooooooooooo...... I've been busy. I know I know- thats no excuse for ignoring the old blog. Please accept my humble apologies. And PLEASE take a look at what I've been doing!!!!

This is the fireplace area in my Dining Room/foyer/library (its a small house, it has to multitask!)

And heres my little library- I love this spot.

This is my guest room/craft room/dressing room (again, multitasking is a must.)

If you spend the night with me, you get to sleep in this FABULOUS bed! Don't you love it?

And this is my "dressing table"/ craft station.

And finally a few cute shots of my fuzzys enjoying the backyard.....

Oscar's thoughful spot

Hampton has a very green thumb.

And this guy (I never did get his name) hung out on my geraniums ALL day. I have several great shots- its almost like he was posing!

I didn't do any color correction on these pics- the flowers are as red as can be, but when i took the picture that yellow and orange showed up-- I think its FABULOUS.

Ode to Phil Spector's Hair

I can't resist. I started something and, darn it, I have to finish it. Phil Spector has had more hairdos than Dolly Parton and I have become more than a little obsessed with this dude's "Do". Mainly because he started out so "normal" looking and over the years he has gotten...well... OUT OF CONTROL. And I think its safe to assume that his wack-a-do hairstyles directly correlate to his wack-a-do life choices. Lets take a stroll down hairdo lane......

What sweet boyish charm- Can you believe he used to be in a band called "The Teddy Bears"?

The "Cool Dude Eats a Candy Cane" look. and PS- I LOVE those glasses

His futures SO Bright...... Oh, if he only knew......

Whos got rose colored glasses and one thumb.... this guy.

And heres where it starts to go terribly terribly wrong...... I ask again, can you believe THIS GUY (who is not-so-subtly giving "the finger" to someone in the court room) was in a band called "The Teddy Bears"???

The "Wet Dog Wears Too Much Rouge" look

little picture, fat face

Big picture, skinny face

The "Holy Crap I Can't Believe Your Hair Can Actually Do That" look

ps- I had BIG PLANS to do a little more research into Mr. Spectors life and try to prove my thesis that whacked out life choices = whacked out hairdos. But then I realized I'm not really interested in doing all that work and would rather just laugh at the man. But I will keep this thesis in the back of my mind in case I'm struggling for term paper topics next semester....

I heart.....

I got this idea from a blog I love called Bliss. Every monday she does an "I heart Monday" post in which she lists a bunch of things that she....well....that she hearts! And I don't heart monday AT ALL. So in an effort to overcome the monday blues (and the blues in general), I'm gonna start an "I heart" post of my own, but I'm not gonna restrict it to mondays. Everytime I'm feeling down I'm gonna count my blessings and my inspirations and try to make myself laugh a little- and hopefully you can laugh a little too :) Here we go!

I heart this little girl.

I heart this wallpaper by Julia Rothman...

In both colorways!

I heart everything about this.
color, subject, composition- everything. Visit Samantha Hahn's blog for more fabulousness.

I heart natalie dee. she makes me laugh so hard i wet my pants...evry time.

I heart this guy's hairdo. I have no clue who he is, but damn. what a masterpiece. (ps, I think i did know who he was once upon a time, and if anyone recognizes him, please remind me- thanks!)

I heart this little flower. I took this pic way back in march, this was one of the first flowers of spring. You hear that, NYC? Spring! In March! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

I heart this guy: Vulcan, the god of iron and steel. How may people can say they have a god of iron and steel keeping watch over their city? Well, I guess all the people who live in B'ham can.... But I love it, and i love this pic, and i took this pic my own self.... why thank you, I think its a pretty great shot too!

I heart "I made you a Beard" on etsy. This girl deserves the Medal of Hilarity. I am not kidding, one of you is gonna be receiving a beard for your birthday one day, I just can't decide who....

Happy Monday, peeps!
