Just some rambling....

Three posts since May 7th. I think I am working on developing a new habit- regular blogging. They say it takes 30 days for a new habit to stick so we'll see. Hehe.

The photo's below have nothing to do with this post but they make me happy so I am sharing. I figure what makes me happy someone else may also enjoy.

The workmanship is exquisite!

Can you imagine waking up to this everyday? I could look out those windows everyday- no complaints. I would have a comfy chair and watch the world go by. I've always been a reader so I would need some good reads for those moments when I would NOT be looking out the windows. I used to share some of my favorite books right here. I think that tradition may continue.

What an odd collection!  Dearie- The remarkable life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz is a wonderful biography. The photo of Julia on the cover is what caught my eye. She was a lovely young woman. To think that when the photo was taken, she had no idea that her name would be known everywhere.

 Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger was a gift which I will jump into next. If you read The Devil Wears Prada or saw the movie (guilty on both counts), this picks up a few years down the road.
We'll see. 

I love magazines but have gotten pretty picky with what I purchase now. They all seem to be the same. When I picked up French Cottage - Victoria Classics. I knew it was a winner. Definitely worth looking for. 

Living in Italy by Alvino Fantini (love the sound of his name) is a book that I purchased in 2000. That was 3 years before hubby and I married. Every once in a while I pull it out and read Now, he reads through it. A kindred soul- hehe.

This last photo is a Christmas stocking I made from a Burberry item that no longer fit well.
As soon as I finish this post, I am off to begin work on another. The design will be different but they will work well together. 

I used the label, the ribbon from the garment. Repurposing at its best. Hehe. 
I only have enough fabric for the 2 stockings. Wish it would have been a dress or something larger. 

Well, I have rambled on enough. Hope to keep on rambling.

Big hugs!

Those windows are beautiful!

Well, look at you becoming a regular blogger:) Love those windows, I too could look out them every day! Have a blessed day and get busy working on that stocking! HUGS!

Hi Barb, I haven't seen a post from you in such a long long time! Not that I am one to talk, I have been slipping and sliding with the blogging thing as well but I am starting up again myself. Come visit with me!

xoxo, Bonnie

Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for stopping by. Those pics were taken in Spain. Love the architecture. Christmas is 24-7 in my home. lol


Barb said...

Hi Lorrie,
I appreciate the visit! Wait till you see Burberry #2. I think it could be my favorite. I'll stop by later.

Barb said...

Hi Pondside,

Thank o for your visit. I will be by later. I am in love with those windows!


Barb said...

Hi Theresa,

I truly love those windows. Hubby had to pull me down the street. We may have made a scene-lol.

Wait till you see Burberry #2. I may have difficulty parting with it.

Hi Bonnie,

Girl... it has been a while. Thank you for stopping by and I will visit a little later today. It is very difficult to start blogging once you've stopped. I thought 2013 I would start then then life happened. 2014... 2015 hopefully will be my time...again.
