i noticed yesterday on jills blog that she had some recipes her mom had written down for her. it was such a coincidence, since when i last went to visit my mom she gave me some recipes she had written down in 1946! i was just thrilled that she was able to keep them this long. i would love to honor these pages by displaying them somehow. any suggestions?
i have given up on gas prices friday. the last few weeks gas prices have just hovered around $4. it was getting boring, to say the least. i needed to come up with something new....so now i will be doing mosaic monday. i didnt think of this until today, and since mosaic tuesday doesnt sound as cute as mosaic monday, i decided that i just did it late this week, k?
i love reading barbara over at oodles and oodles because she always finds such lovely vintage bits and bobs. she recently found a tumble up (her words, not mine).i was so excited today, because i made my own! hows that for upcycling? hehe
not exactly the purdiest thing in the world, but it made me laugh, so i will use it. that book there....its anthony bourdain's a cooks tour. i happen to have a crush on the man. i have no idea why...he is so not my type. he drinks like a fish, he smokes, he has had quite the colorful past and hes skinny! i do so love his shows tho. pretty much monday nite is the only time i watch tv......and its him.
geez that was way more info than i had planned on sharing tonight..but eh. ok so now we come to the time in our show where you pat me on the back and say good girl. the reason? i have finally convinced myself to start purging magazines. this is a big deal for me. i once sold all my ms's only to buy them all back!!! this time i am starting small...getting rid of the odd mags, do it yourself, cottage living, etc. it will be harder to get rid of my country livings, and country homes, but i figure if i get some momentum going with the less cared about mags, it will be easier to get rid of the ones i love. dont even ask about the marthas
i got thru almost all of the go thru's here, just a few more, and i am going thru them tonight before i hit the sack. i should have about 25 to take to the home across the street. i am trying to talk myself into taking a pic of my mag cupboard, i figure the embarrassment will help me purge....
edited to note i didnt upload the mosaic properly, so if you want to see the pix bigger, go to my flickr. sorry.
