who lived here? who do i want to be? who wrote this? who would throw this away? who has the time? who do you love? who were my great great grandparents? who owned this? who are you? who were my parents? who sings this? who cares? who said that? who made this? who is in that photo? who is my sister? who designed this? who fell for that? who bought that? who knit this? who thought of that? who sat there? who am i? who vintage.

if this whole post were my heart...

from aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallll the way down here...
THATS how much i love these old photos of my dad's family.

i may need them framed for my bedroom. yup.

your smile beams like sunshine

on a dove's wings
and the leaves dance and play
after you

take my hand and hold it
as you would a flower

be careful with my heart
oh darlin'
she's made of glass

what: the moving process. ugh. slowly but surely things are coming together beautifully. pink coffee table? why yes please.

song: torquoise by donovan as heard below.

who loves us

brecken of the chic life writes: i have to say, i am impressed. you do absolutely gorgeous work and i can tell that you put heart into it...

ah, well thanks brecken!

it turns out that we dig your stuff right back sugar britches!

just look at this "peacock" dresser!

i might want to marry it.

also in love with her "about me" in which she articulates rather perfectly what businesses like ours are about: i'm all about supporting the local first, not really down with the powerhouse corporate america.

who likes it. see more at www.the-chic-life.blogspot.com

on the same note, found this in my archive of bob dylan/joan baez photos:

protest against the rising tide of conformity.

paint a picture. write a song. hug a stranger. spread some love. and follow our blogs. happy tuesday kids.

the virginia table

one cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

quote: virginia woolf from a room of one's own
for sale: the virginia table. shabby chic and shiny baby! small dining room table for four. $115. (sorry, sold)

might i suggest...a set of four creamy/golden chairs to go with this table? and perhaps a black chandelier? i'll have those items coming soon kids. patience is a virtue.
