happy sunday from LA. i’ve been hanging the curtain panels i brought back from bavaria. one is from a flea market and the other 2 window topper style i bought by the yard at a curtain store in mittenwald.
while i was at it, i redid the 5 year old mickey mouse job i did on an embroidered linen tablecloth slash curtain that was on one of my bedroom windows. i bought that tablecloth in 2011 in france. made it into a curtain in 2014, where it stayed on a rickety dowl rod until yesterday when i finally hung it up right. without a live-in fixer person these things tend to fall by the wayside.
if you are a part or full-time plant-based eater you may want to try this. it tastes better than it looks! smashed chickpeas with lots of things added. there’s a “tunafish” variety of this, but this is the mediterranean version. sort of. extremely delicious on toast with a thin layer of guacamole.
wyatt is not a plant-based eater, but he did look like he was going to appreciate the catnip cave i picked up for him at target.
nope. not interested. maybe later.
in the bedroom i removed the ancient gingham roman blinds i got at ikea in 2002 and replaced them with some brand spanking new red gingham curtains.
i keep going in my room and staring at them. pure tail-thumping love every single time.
i’m also spending a lot of time staring at my flea market panel.
it’s funny how a few small things can cast such a cozy ambiance over everything.
thanks again for all the wishlist gifts for my classroom! every one of those art supplies i listed was purchased and will be put to very good use. the official word from amazon is that unless you indicated that the wishlist item was a GIFT when you submitted your order, there was no receipt of any kind put in the envelope. seems like a dumb policy to me because it makes it impossible to thank people. so if you don’t receive a personal thank-you from me (via amazon) please know just how appreciative i am anyway, because…I AM.
in case i haven’t mentioned it lately, there’s enormous pleasure and relaxation involved in randomly pulling the car to the side of the road and doing a quick sketch.
okay that’s the final random smoke signal i’m sending out into the blogosphere on this early sunday evening. hope you’re well. planning trips, baking cakes, ironing curtains, and engaging in all manner of domestic bliss.
