Hubby Sweety Brings Home Art Supplies

My everlovin' sweetie is my loyal supporter, my enabler, and bringer of found items and ephemera. He also on occasion, complains that I have too much "stuff", and wishes I would use it up faster...or find a better way to store it. But when it comes to candy foil, he is always happy to assist in any way he can. Of course I get the pleasure of opening and smoothing the wrappers out and he gets to gobble up the contents. That is not to say that a few of these won't find their way into my mouth, especially the hazelnut ones.

Show me your Junk Drawer

Holy Crap! How embarrassing is this? This is my lovely entry table that I try to keep cleaned off. Our "landing strip" as it were, when we come in the door. It stays cleaned off for a week or so, but then one of us puts the mail there, or keys, or the camera, then slowly it attracts more stuff till it is an embarrassment again. Well, speaking of cameras...this is what I found inside the drawer, which was stuck closed because something had gotten jammed inside and it could not be opened. I finally UNjammed it while I was talking on the phone with a pal, about the fact that neither of us could find our "lomo" cameras. You know, the ones we just had to have when they were all the rage a few years ago. Well, I did find the lomo there, and now a few days later, it has gone missing somewhere else. But also I found all this stuff!! Cameras galore, old film, a few cell phones, etc. etc. A keychain digital? Where'd that come from! Fun and possibilities, and reminders of many more unfinished things I have started. Oh, Oh, theres the little Polaroid i-Zone my friend from Ohio brought me a few years ago...they don't even make film for it anymore, do they? I know there is a flickr group that shares photos taken with expired film...I never even knew that expired film was still usable, but then why the heck have I been saving it???

Love That Anthropologie

After coffee at Whole Foods in the a.m., the Hubster and I took our first of the month stroll through the home goods section of Anthropologie. They were in the process of changing the displays out and getting the "Christmas" stuff up, so things were kind of everywhere and they were all busy little bees.

This bed had some of the pillows on it that we saw in last week's episode of Man Shops Globe.

I love their mirrors

These were very old mirrors attached to one another, kind of leaning precariously...wonder if that is where they are going to stay or were they just waiting to be hung?

After that we strolled through the new West Elm store for the first time and pretended we were just starting out and had bought a loft and were furnishing it with all contempary stuff. Totally opposite of the style of Anthropologie. HaHa Then we came home and admired our own 35 year collection of mix-matched stuff with all it's history attached.

Oh Bats...Halloween is over

Time to pack away the Halloween stuff which I barely got out this year. Here's a cool postcard I received from a fellow bat (and owl) loving pal. I am still searching for the cool bat I bought for her and then poked away, then couldn't find...
