Wow! I just downloaded these 5 pictures and they came up in quadruples! Very strange doings for blogger.
My girlfriend came over for a nice visit today and we sat outside for a bit in my extrememly all green but growing well garden( I don`t think I planted much that blooms this time of year).... and then came in and had tea and cookies and muffins. She forgot how tall Elvis was and lost 1 muffin and 1 cookie in the first 10 minutes off the table! She`d only walked over to put the kettle on came back and got up again for something else and there you have it. A lovely sweet treat twice over with variety had he, this afternoon. So much for his diet.
I finally carted out and sorted my daughter`s old room. Put the two drapes up a bit differently and layed the one area rug we kept over the carpet. Feels cozy in there now.
The wild looking chair that I call the "Rudolph Valentino" is going to live in Toronto next month. My daughter is moving and needs a bit more furniture. So I offered up that. She`s renting a house at the moment with two other girls that are moving away (one travelling Europe, lucky thing) and she really only owns a bed and dresser so far, and will be having her own little sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom in the apartment of an old house to decorate and fill .
You can partially see one of my favorite pictures on the wall. It was originally just a black and white picture printed off the computer and I coloured it deep rich tones.
It`s called "The Fool" and represents in the world of tarot, the energies of having blind faith and a light heart about things that one might be worried about. It was something I did whilst looking for a job 5 years ago. Gave me some hope and inspiration whenever I looked at it and helped me to remember to have faith.
This is the overflow of all my books and ornaments. The two bookcases cost $50 together and because they`re just that cheap white press board, I painted them brown.
That strange high lump in the corner covered with a beige curtain is 2 huge speakers and a printer LOL They looked even worse without the curtain.
I bought some potting soil and what herbs I could find and stuck them in the two pots that hubby gave me.....
Stuck an "Empress of India" Nasturtium in the middle of each for some colour and because they are a good companion flower to herbs. They get brilliant red flowers. I`d love to grow some herbs in the kitchen over winter but I`m not sure they`ll survive. I`ll try and see what happens. I wanted some more rosemary but can`t find any. I love how they look in clay pots as they get bigger and how one can actually sculpt them.
How do you say herbs? I say it likes it`s written. Makes more sense to me. Herb the man isn`t called Erb and herb the plant sounds funny called erb even though one would say "an erb", I would much rather say "a herb" LOL
Elvis is such a sweet boy. Sweeter today especially after his stolen treats...the naughty thing.
