Buskie on a Sunday

Buskie, a photo by mychinarose on Flickr.

This is my sweet little buskie lying on the kitchen floor, cooling her belly and probably waiting for me to make something to eat so she can look at me with her big watery brown eyes and beg for food.

I'm going to make a little natural flea remover for her (poor thing picks them up so easily in the summer). My book of natural remedies says to mix 6 drops of essential oil (citronella, thyme, or cedar wood) with either olive or sweet almond oil. I also need to buy some lavender oil.

Crafty Inspiration: Baby Rattles

Mariana bought one of these for baby Sloane at an upscale baby store on Larchmont and I'm just now getting round to uploading this pic. I just think it's adorable. Maybe I'll make decorations inspired by these little embroidered sock rattles for her upcoming baby shower....

wooly pockets

I'm totally loving this as a design idea! We're about to buy a 27ft vintage trailer to put on our property, and I want to make it funky and cool while keeping it really vintagey. So I'm frantically scrambling to get lots of ideas. This would be awesome for the outside, even. I'm so excited!

I don't know if everybody knows about Marie (pronounced "Mar-ee-ay") Digby yet, but I'm sure they will. She was an unknown musical talent before posting her acoustic rendition of Rihanna's "Umbrella" on youtube. This song, "Ne-yo" is also really pretty, and shows her range on the piano as well. Check it out!

I know I don't blog a lot. You know what it is? I think I'm torn. I tend to be an open-book find of a person. I definitely have a tendency to live out-loud and not hold anything back. But that's not always the best thing for me. I've been burned before. And that was not a good experience, so I have to tone it way, way down. That said, I think I can temper what I write with interesting things to share, I just tend to downgrade what I have to say sometimes as not all that interesting. I have a lot of "I wish I coulds" or "wish I had time to's". But the truth of the matter is that it's not so much that I don't have the time for them. I am just a mondo-procrastinator. This aspect about myself frustrates the hell out of me. Why do I continue to do this? Sigh.

Anyway, there's been a ton going on in my life. A TON. I was on an emotional roller coaster for the past couple of weeks. But now the light is shining brightly at the other end of the tunnel and it looks looks like it's all going to be okay. And so I'm sighing a huge breath of relief.

That said! Here's something I found on Stylehive. I am dreaming of beautifying my surroundings. We have a pretty small house, and little living space for six souls to dwell in (nevermind hardly any storage space). Our vrbo on our property takes up a whole life of its own...I can't wait until those spaces get integrated into our daily living...ah, some day... But until then I just have to help my husband see the need for re-thinking our surroundings so that they're flexible, functional, and totally integrated into our lives. Which brings me to the cool couch below. I love this! Although white would never suffice with the three mutts we have crawling all over our furniture. But the shape is divine, and I'd love someday to have it or something like it in our studio.
