Living with Stuff

A broader view of the Living Room.

This lovely INSANE home of marvelous collections is available through AirBNB.

Paige and Ahnika are the very creative (and lucky) owners.

They collect (hoard?) lots of cool stuff like:

old farm tools, thriving green plants, musical instruments and comfortable looking  colorful cushions.

They know how to style the bee-jesus out of their home in Brooklyn.

It is like a living and growing museum.

But better-since you can plop on down anywhere and not get yelled out by a security guard.

I highly recommend checking out their fabulous and wacky home-

It's a pack ratter's heaven.

I want to stay there--

No, I want to live there.

Green with Envy?

Like my new bag?

Just bought it over this weekend from one of my favorite consignment shops

Urbanity on Solano Avenue in Albany, CA
(yep, that one again)

It was on sale-

Sale sale

$25 plus change.

Just did a little internet searching...

You can buy your very own at Neiman Marcus for

Decor Whore

A Messy Kitchen is All Right By Me!

 An Explosion of Color!

Apartment Therapy is one of my favorite blogs.

I look at it everyday---and multiple times a day!

Yes, what can I say?

I'm a decor junkie!

And the junkier and funkier the home, the better!!!

Here is a lovely kitchen A. T. highlighted today.

It belongs to the lovely and talented Caro Ritchie of  Corita Rose.

I love how it is fun, mismatched and a bit messy (like real life!)

I love a room with character and personality.

This room has LOTS of it.

Shine and grime on!

It's all right by me!

43 and Counting...

Old Wise Owl

I'm feeling my age today.


I need to wear glasses when reading.

Need to.

I've got sexy white streaks of hair.


My hands look wrinkly.

I've got too much loving in the belly region.

jiggle jiggle belly fat
why can't I get rid of that?

But hey, I'm the same age as the lovely Padma of Top Chef.

So I ain't that bad...

In Search of Miracles!

 Meet SARK (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy) with her funky bookmark!

Do you dream in color or black in white?

Are you a neutral or a neon color?

Do you drink rainbow smoothies or black coffee?

Do you wear cozy socks or too-snug high heels?

If you are in need of a little color, juice, oomph, chuckle and joie de vivre  (sp?) then please meet

Susan (aka SARK).

I discovered her fun creative books a while ago from a fellow butterfly dream catcher, my friend/beauty-filled actress Grace Lee.

 Look at the Mega-Watt Smile! ;)

Both of these ladies inspire me to believe in miracles, and to believe in MYSELF.

I am on a daily search for miracles in my life---please send me your good vibes--I need it desperately today!

What time is it?

It's Inspiration Time Of Course!

Happy Friday to you, and you and especially you!

I hope you are:

 sewing, singing, thrifting, laughing, gluing, 
mending, shining, giving, crafting, 
caring, glittering, cleaning, and loving 
right this very moment!

(If not, go out and DO something!)

Stay happy and creative people and have a wonder-filled fun weekend.

And now let me introduce you to some brilliant ladies...
