I’ve been anti-blog for a while now but decided I would post randomly to see if my 2 readers (thanks mom and Mike) are paying attention. In the time I’ve been away, I’ve celebrated my birth (yes, 29) and made some progress on the ‘ol house.
To summarize: kitchen remodel is done. construction workers, biffy and large dumpster in front of the house are gone. grass under said biffy is slowly growing back after being squished with poo for months (kidding). stuff inside is cleaned up and happening.
first up: kitchen nook banquette. cushions have been made, a few pillows have been purchased and some more pillow friends are on their way to join. I enlisted the help of Jamie Meares (Furbish gangster), and as you can see, Chiang Mai, leaf and flamestitch are getting along very well. I’ll post more once it’s all full and cozy.

Proof of Jamie’s gangster abilities: the vintage kilim rug she found coordinates perfectly with it’s Chiang Mai pillow buddies. Now let’s just hope Mike and I don’t make any major spills
I turned 29. drinks were necessary. My mama, my bro, my sister-in-law and my sweet, little niece were all in town to celebrate. I prepped the bar and of course left the pretty decanter my mom got me empty for the shot. doh. oh well, you get the idea. I got the snakeskin tray and bowl from Furbish. The antique, ship captain’s chest turned bar was given to us by my Aunt.
Another shot of the bar with a vintage bowl from Society Social that I filled with limes along with a brass ‘dillo from Furbish. He guards the drinks and keeps things in order. The brass skull candle snuffer is a gift from my sister-in-law.
My sweet, 91 year old grandma birthday-gifted me this beauty from City Market on Etsy. I promptly stuffed it with puffy flowers.
Next up on the ‘ol house docket: convincing Mike to assemble a console for the TV room. dun dun dunnnn…
