Cinchy Stuff


Me again.
How 'bout all that heat last week?


23 degrees here today!

Welcome to springtime in New York!

Here's some cinchy things that will most likely not change interior design psychology
have put a smile on my face.

I'm joining these crazies:

in this:

Ready for some cinchy stuff?

Brace yourselves!



I know.  Hold your applause!

See that little shelf?  It's been bare wood for 60 years.  So.  I painted it yellow.  Yes.  Just the other day.
 And look what became of our breakfast nook!


Instructions for front door project:  Remove snowman ornament, toss into Christmas storage box.  Grab broken outdoor wind chime from last year, throw colorful disks over wreath.  Smile.

Instructions for painting shelf:  Early summer weather necessary.  Remove wooden shelf from wall.  Hold spray paint can upright.  Spray.  Look at drips and have not a care in the world.  Let dry.  Hang shelf in same spot.

An honest heart

One can never go wrong with an honest heart.


Honesty has its ups, downs, swirls, valleys and soap boxes.

But honest hearts, they beat gently.

They wait.

I love them.

One of my boys began writing a book yesterday.
Because he can.  

As the moment of inspiration beckoned him into position, he curled up and began with pencil in hand.

A moment.

My other son was inspired to play the drums, at the same time.

The author quietly asked if he
"do that right now". 

"Why?", asked the drummer.

"Because out here is where I have the sensation, right here in this spot."

The drummer got it.
Drummers are deep.

  He put his sticks down and built a star ship destroyer out of Legos, in his room.  

Then the author came in to tell me that "the sensation" was where the sun was shining, and the birds were chirping.

Honest hearts.

I know it's been a while


I mentioned that I would post when I got inspired.

Something hit this morning while I was reading "my morning paper".

(she did NOT do this to her pillow)

Dignity and respect for the pillow.

Pillows everywhere thank you, Karianne!
This photo came from Thistlewood Farm and 
I didn't have time to ask for permission.  But I will.

love you gals,

Disclaimer 2:  I did NOT make a single pillow for the PILLOWPALOOZA, but was asked to join the party with this post
