like a velvet glove cast in iron…

I just discovered the horrible news that Tura Satana , one of my all time favorite cult film actresses and star of Russ Meyer’s Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! died last night in Reno, Nevada. I’m absolutely crushed by the news. I first discovered Tura Satana in London, England in 1995. Several of my friends and […]

it just keeps coming and coming…

By in Life, Me

My friends downstate have been hammered by snow this winter so I really shouldn’t be complaining at all. However, we are getting hit by a huge storm right now and I’m not enjoying it. I have a precarious relationship with winter. I like the holiday season, and that’s about it. If I had the ability […]

Where does the time go? I can’t believe we are in the last month of the year. I don’t really like how fast the time goes but there isn’t much I can go about except go with the flow and try to make the best of the time I have. I’ve been away from my […]

Today was a gorgeous day and I was able to utilize a couple of hours this afternoon to do some long overdue raking and yard-work. It was high 50’s and slightly cloudy and I raked out all but two of my flower beds and most of my property perimeter in preparation of having my leaves […]

By in Master Bedroom, Upstairs Hallway

I finally got around today to hanging some artwork in my bedroom and upstairs hallway. Only two pieces, to be precise, but it’s a start. I always get anxious when it comes to hanging artwork and my head fills with questions such as “is this the right piece for this location?” or “is this piece […]

something to consider…

By in Life

I’m going to step away from my home and my life for a moment to post this video from Reconsider Columbus Day. It is very sad to me that after the horrible treatment of Native Americans that there is no national holiday in the U.S. to honor their culture and memorialize the millions of Native […]

reunited and it feels so good…

By in Master Bedroom

After six years of living in my house my clothes and I are all together in one room again! Due to the fact that my house is almost 200 years old my closets are small. When I moved in, the dresser that goes with my bed reused to fit up my steep, narrow stairwell (that […]

I had an awesome time in Ottawa yesterday with my friend Devon! We spent several hours shopping at IKEA then headed over to the Byward Market for some browsing around and lunch! Speaking of lunch, we ate a wonderful little Vietnamese restaurant named Cafe Indochine. I had a delicious sour pineapple soup and a green-curry […]

trip to ikea…decisions, decisions…

By in Inspiration & Ideas, Master Bedroom

I’m taking a trip to Ottawa, Ontario this coming Saturday with a friend to go to IKEA! It’s about an hour away from me but it’s the closest IKEA there is to my home! I wish there was one closer but I guess a boy will have to dream. I’m looking for a mirror and […]

Words can’t describe how much I love my dog Chloe.  She’s a Rat Terrier and she’s 4 years old.  She sticks to me like glue when I’m home and I can’t tell you how great it is to have her great me at the door everyday when I get home from work- especially on the […]
