help a sister out?

I'm a mean green sittin' machine!

add a little class to your home!

A&W root beer has that frosty mug taste - buy one, buy all and get a steal of a deal! - ONLY 2 LEFT!!
we're literally bursting at the seams - it is getting hard to figure out where to put all of the groovy things that are pouring in the door . . . here are just a few

cute, darling and adorable

I dream that one day I would have a real-life designer come into my life and breathe new life into my funny old house.  Freshen up the colors, make it look more spacious by moving the sad old sofas and drench us in the hot hip colors.  Our house will be so divine we will squabble no more, look perfect when we wake and be able to abide our funny old house for many more years to come! 

(sigh) it is a dream for now but when I look at Kirsten Krason's inspirational design ideas at 6th Street Design School I see a dream into action!  She is fresh, brave and thoughtful in her style - you should check her out and also see what she wrote about abode . . .

Thanks Kirsten, this is the start of a beautiful friendship

MARKET had more variety than ever!  we ate hot tamales, licorice and swedish fish, pulled tootsie pops for discounts (no one picked the 50% this time : (

our resident market historian (my nephew Nate) took these shots . . .they'll make you want to mark your calendar for july 17 for sure!!

smiling happy new things
