Kitchen?  What kitchen?

Here was my kitchen on Sunday night.  Notice, Daisy has to be in the middle of all I do.  She set this shot up. This was my kitchen yesterday.  Daisy is visiting neighbours at my old house while work is being done in the kitchen.  She gets entirely too nervous. This is my kitchen today.  Still missing Daisy…  The house is lonely without her. Good thing I have a fridge in the dining room and a microwave in the living room.  I’ve been told … [Read more...]

Secret Pal 7 Questions

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? I love to knit with wool. Then, wool blends, alpaca, mohair, and the like. I even own camel and quivet. I don’t avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand, but normally, they just aren’t what I’m knitting with. 2. Do you spin? Crochet? Nope and nope. I’d like to learn to crochet. I’m not too sure about spinning. 3. What do you use to store your needles/hooks … [Read more...]

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I’ve had this little weekend project since last September, new bathroom fixtures… Not that I’ve had a ton of weekend time to work on it, but I’ve had it. For Christmas, my Aunt came down from Davis to help out around the house. She offered to help me get my project going. We put together the base cabinet, and then I went and started the plumbing. Hmm. Things didn’t go as we planned. The plumbing fell apart in my hands. A very small set back. A plumber was called, … [Read more...]

Before…  And after!

Just before Christmas, I got to pick up the new rocker from the shop.  I was so excited!  I think it came out beautifully.  It matches the other furniture, and it fits Daisy perfectly!  Doesn’t she look cozy? … [Read more...]

Should one really wear their tiara to work?

For my birthday, Jessica decided that I needed a tiara.  You know, I’ve always wanted a tiara.  Seriously.  It’s one of those stupid things that is on my list of things to have…  I just always thought that I would be the one to buy it.  I was wrong. It is the prettiest thing.  It made me smile. Don’t you think it suits me? … [Read more...]

Daisy Vs. The Hedge Hog

For Christmas, Daisy got several new toys.  Her favorite is the Hedge Hog, which she plays with every day.  It’s very funny, and I thought you might enjoy seeing a bit of her rough-housing! This is the Hedge Hog.  Very cute little toy.  Got it at Target.  Got one for Bijou too. This is Daisy, right before the attack on the Hedge Hog. Here it is…  Daisy Vs. Hedge Hog.  Enjoy. As you can see, she felt the need to involve the duck that she got … [Read more...]
