he's no edward cullen, but i'm going to keep him
this is the begonia who's living in front of the house and happy thus far.
this is my driveway. it's lovely and brick, but of no use to me because it is filled with things that aren't mine, and generally don't move.
other successes around the house include rowdy co-existing somewhat peacefully with his sister prowler, and with his sister paris in the backyard, as they work together to dig for a common cause - a vol maybe?
this, my friends, is another off the street find, which i lugged home whilst walking rowdy and now have a bruise the size of wichita kansas on my side. i'm painting it yellow, clearly.
likewise with this wine crate - on the street with the table! i lined it with plastic and planted zinnias in it.
you can now release your bated breath - this is what i decided to do with the basement of dreams and guacamole and two columns in the middle of the room.
this is the wisteria growing on the trellis out back, which has decided to come back to life just this week, and is making me immensely happy.
and this - this is a page i ripped out of martha because it's lovely. we've already tried at least 5 of the colors in different rooms in our house, since i've failed to develop any cohesive color scheme.

i've.been.officially.sucked.in. (no pun intended...well maybe). i read it in two nights. i have no idea what the deal is that makes this book so compelling (one good theory: edward cullen).
at the end, when she thinks he finally might do it - and he's all up on her neck, "are you ready for it now?". i thought i would hyperventilate. how lusty!
i'm renting the movie tonight, then i've got to get the next book, STAT.
this is ridiculous.

when i imagine my family in the backyard, gathered around our fire pit, sitting on ikea chairs, roasting marshmallows, it looks sort of like this. well mostly exactly like this.
i'm guessing you have to take the ikea chairs in when weather is inclement? anyone have ideas on this?
so i have a huge favor to ask my loyal readers.
i am in need of some design work, quick like. i'd normally do this myself, but i'm without any access to any design programs in the next day...
i need a biz card, with some simple text, jazzed up a bit.
should you be able to help me,
1: we'll start wearing this immediately if not sooner
2: i'll be glad to pay, just not $2837438 b/c this is a favor, remember, and you're getting a new best friend out of this.
3: you'll get a special package of things including but not limited to a zebra pillow, homemade linen spray and other delights.
**hark! i've been helped. i love the intraweb -=)
to end up with this
and is making a great neighbor beside this bookcase in the basement of dreams and guacamole
i love bookcases, have i told you that lately?
in unrelated news, there is a large contingent of window boxes outside the kitchen now:
we're growing dill, cilantro, basil, mint, chives, catnip and assorted lettuces.
