Have you seen the cover of this months Design Within Reach catalog?It features a tricked out mini Airstream trailer on its cover. You see the deal with the Hubs has always been,if he gets a pool,I get an Airstream as the pool house!
It would be a perfect guest house for my visiting artist friends ! Especially now that it comes with a George Nelson Ball clock!
Looky what my mother gave me! Barbie Paper Dolls from the 70's !!! It seems Barbie is in a bit of a western mood,and it also looks like she has been raiding my magic closet!Just look at that Patio dress , the tooled leather belt,and those cowboy boots!
I might have to pass on a couple of these looks(dolman sleeves always seem so chic, until you are wearing them!). I certainly dig the Hawaiian house dress and the Minnetonka moccasins!
I finally had a couple of exciting thriftventures! There has been no time at all to thrift lately,but I managed to squeeze a little spree in. How about this green bedjacket snapped up for 2 bux?
This black lace nightgown and peignoir was also 1.99 for BOTH pieces! I plan to wear the peignoir as an evening jacket with black skinny jeans,pearls and a Kowalski undershirt.
More yummy goodies! An embroidered bird dresser scarf for 2 dollars,little Marie Antoinettish figure for a dollar each,another tooled leather belt(also 2 dollars(one of those mysterious thrift patterns EVERYTHING was 2 dollars!)....and... beautiful old school Doc Martens for 6 dollars!!! In my size!!!! Ah, sweet nostalgia!
Here is a little sneak peek of Crooked Halos room. The lamps were 4.99 each and rather amazing,especially since lighting was an issue for that room.
Stay tuned for the whole room tour.

So what happens when you are "handed" this award? You award it to five other sites authored by folks that make you think.
Heres my list in no particular order:
Angelina of Dust Pan Alley always has some beautiful thoughts,whether on gardening or Mothers Day,she ALWAYS makes you think.
Jody of Country Girl City Life muses in such a Carrie Bradshaw way,that makes me wish I was her thinking friend Miranda(but with better fashion sense!).
Amanda of Pandoras Button Box makes me think "if only we were next door neighbors",ooo at the trouble we could get into.
Timothy of The Epistle of Timothy is the dearest of souls and always makes me think of Christopher Durangs "Beyond Therapy".
