Dream...

I would love to have french doors in my bedroom. I have even toyed with the idea of swapping my bedroom with my livingroom just so I can have a terrace off my bedroom and the view from my livingroom window is to die for...just not brave enough yet...


Paul Newman Should Win an Oscar for his Life

Mini called me this weekend and gave me the news that the person who made her favorite place in the world, The Hole in the Wall Camp, is dead. She was sad, but happy that he went to heaven and that he didn't go when camp was in session, because it would have been too sad to be at camp and hear this news...Mini has such a grip on life and death...hum.

What a life...It got me thinking, they give out Oscars for acting...what if we gave out Oscars for life. Would I get one? Would you get one? Paul Newman would definately get one...RIP.

Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, married 50 years
He once told a reporter about their successful marriage... "Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?" We should all be so lucky.


Paul Newman and Liz Taylor, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF one of my favorite movies...I have to get it on DVD...

His food company, Newman's Own, produced more than 200 million dollars in profits since 1982 - money which was donated to philanthropic works such as his Hole in the Wall camps for children with serious illnesses.

The Hole in the Wall camp organization said Newman's 'selfless commitment to the welfare of children living with serious medical illnesses has been inspirational to people everywhere.'
The camps were part of 'his living legacy that will continue to thrive.'
'Paul's leadership, compassion and motivational spirit can never be replaced, but he has left us strong and confident. Through the many camper smiles we witness each and every day, Pauls dream lives on.

My bedroom update...

...just thought I'd update you on my bedroom makeover...NOTHING has changed...it's still a waste land...maybe I need to find a dresser and then I'd be inspired...I heart this room...

I need to go take a bath...

...I'll see ya in a couple of days...this bathroom is so sexy...

Genius...

Why didn't I think of that...

Lazy Post

..so, the past two days were spent with Mini and her doctors...there was good and bad news...the MRI's showed no worsening damage, good news---but it has not gotten better as we hoped, bad news...hum? The doctors recommended that we just continue her treatment as noted until something better comes along and hope for the best...hum? So Mommy is taking the day off to breathe...and i'll leave you guys with a little eye candy for your weekend...


Another chair crush...

...mystery solved, you can love two chairs at the same time...




I'm out of the shoe game

....I mentioned yesterday that I'm not a shoe person...here's the proof...I found these shoes in a dusty box in the corner of my bedroom. All of them, never worn...well, that's not true. I wore the black straps with the red bottoms once.
...when I was a little girl, I wore what made my mom happy...when I was a teenager, I wore what made my friends happy, as a young woman, I wore what made men happy...today, I only wear what makes me happy...and these shoes don't make me happy...there cute, but right now, my life is so far from cute...I forgot I had them...















Teen Vouge & Mini


...last weekend Mini participated in a fashion program at Macy's for EMU boots...and received her first bag of celebrity swag...this was inside..water, t-shirt, stickers, key chain, candy but no boots....

I heart...

Most women fall in luv with shoes (not me...I'll post about that tomorrow) I fall in luv with chairs...and I gotta crush on...

Sharing...

...just have to share...this Turkey Hill, sugar free ice cream is amazing...low in fat, no sugar and full of fiber...check out the stats on the box...it is so creamy and I love rich and creamy ice cream...this ice cream is too good to be true...the peach mango flavor actually has large pieces of mango and peach mixed in...LUV, LUV, LUV...
If you love ice cream, run don't walk...FYI, Walmart sells it for $2.99 for half gallon....






Mini-Me

a few days ago I posted a picture of a lamp shade I painted...well, here's Mini's version...

On my easel





...from the mind of a scattered artist...one minute I'm painting, next I'm crocheting, then sewing, decorating...UGH! ...focus brain, focus....

Today's Musical Selection




...you know how you hear a song for the first time and think, "that's wack!! what the heck was she thinking about putting out that wack a#$ song"?...and then after hearing it everywhere you go, suddenly you catch yourself groovin' to it...?
