I am totally smitten with my new book "A bit of Velvet & a Dash of Lace" by Robin Brown. The photos are gorgeous. I love how she uses so many layers in her decorating to create a feeling of comfort and warmth.
Some of it is a little to shabby for me, but I love seeing how she puts things together. It gives me such great inspiration to add my own spin on her ideas. I LOVE books like this!
Robin talks about her parents and her entire childhood. She is a huge re-purposer and has even started her own clothing line.
Speaking of clothing, I've begun an on-line search for an outfit for Flyboy and LBB's wedding. I want to print out a few styles that I like to start, before actually going to a real store - I'm dreading it. I really don't like to try on and buy clothes. I'd much rather buy some cool junque for the house and just order my clothes on-line.
Alley has been keeping me company in my studio lately. She whines until I make room for her on the chair behind my work
table. I don't have to pay attention to her, she just wants to be near me I guess. She's getting a lot of white in her face and it makes me realize that she's getting older. We got her and her brother Dexter when Flyboy was in grade school (he'll graduate from college in May). We had to put Dexter down almost 8 years ago.
How about Punxsutawny Phil and his prediction for an early spring?! I'm really ready for it to come this year, I've got a lot of plans for the garden. How about you?
