Where Do I Begin?

We don’t have the show “ Hoarders” in England but I did catch it last time I was home in the states and oh my goodness it has haunted me. I am not like those poor people but sometimes my etsy shop feels like a real slippery slope. So often I fall in love with things that I never wanted or needed and it takes me way too long to list on the shop. Or I acquire items that are just too large to sell on etsy. This week I came home from an auction with a freakin projector!

 I spent a day thinking I would fix it up and Andy and I would make 8mm movies and screen them….excuse me …what!?! I don’t have the time or attention span. (If anybody wants a Specto 500 I’ll give you a deal, and I got the screen too) I would love to see how other sellers store their stuff and manage it.

I also came home with quite the collection of old glass bottles. They are very pretty on my windowsill, if I was getting married again I would use them for the centerpieces. I keep talking myself into reasons I may need them in the future.... Slippery slope indeed.

Monday Morning Ritual

I loooove going out to breakfast. It’s my favorite. LA is rich with options of cozy places to sip a cappuccino and meet your girlfriends. Luckily in Manchester I live near The Deaf Institute. It’s so luxurious to have a leisurely breakfast with my husband (that still sounds funny to me) during the week. I love the d├ęcor and the crazy wallpaper.

It's greasy but it's good.

Etsy Flowers for Ma

Awww. I wish my mom wasn't so far away. She is one of my favorite people for sure. I love her and miss her like crazy.

Perfect Day

Wedding Gift

Our dear friends gave us a gift certificate for the Manchester Craft and Design Center. We went back so many times trying to decide finally we settled on these tiles by Lee Page Hanson and I am so happy.
