Antique Teacups?

Teacups 1

I popped over to Goodwill this past week and was excited to find these two lovely little teacups in the wares section. I’ve been wanting to start a teacup collection but haven’t had the space. All that changed on this shopping trip. At $6 per cup, I couldn’t resist buying them. The brown and white [...]

Vampire Maven was Disney’s Inspiration for Maleficent

Maleficent

I’m uber excited about the release of Disney’s film “Maleficient” coming up next month. Was even more jazzed when I stumbled on an interesting article over on Salon.com regarding the link between the 1950s Vampira actress and Disney’s villain Maleficent. The Salon piece was written by documentary filmmaker R. H. Greene who wrote and directed “Vampira [...]

Seattle Glassblowing

Today was a fun day over on Bell Street in Seattle. The city dedicated a new park to the Belltown community. To celebrate, vendors filled the street. Lawn games, jugglers, Chinese dragons, a band, and food trucks were among the many highlights of the festivities. As I walked along Bell Street between Second and Third, [...]

Friday Dress Fix: 1980s Drop Waist

1980s Drop Waist Dress

Okay, guys, how lovely-awesome is this 1980s drop waist dress? I sooooo want it and it would go perfect with a pair of pink heels. The drop waists were popular in the ’80s and early ’90s. I actually remember having a couple of them and wearing them both out quickly. Wish I could’ve nabbed this [...]

Santoku Knife: The Last Kitchen Knife You May Ever Need

Santoku Knife

I’ve been watching a lot of the “Pioneer Woman” on the Food Network lately. Even though I can’t eat 95% of the recipes Ree Drummond makes, due to my IgG specific food intolerances, I try to see if there are ingredients I can adapt sometimes. As I’ve been watching, I took note of the cooking utensils [...]

A ‘Jem and the Holograms’ (LPD) Little Pink Dress

Jem and the Holograms Dress

Jem from the ’80s animated TV series “Jem and the Holograms” is definitely one of my main sources of fashion inspiration. And if it’s one thing that was a staple of Jem’s wardrobe, it was an LPD (little pink dress). It’s also no secret that I love going to thrift stores to pop some tags every [...]

‘The Goonies’ Invasion

the goonies

March and April are turning out to be too good to be true as far as ’80s reboots and nods. First, the very ’80s awesome ABC comedy series “The Goldbergs” had a “Goonies” tribute. If you haven’t seen “The Goldbergs” yet, you should check it out. It’s like “The Wonder Years” but with an extra [...]

Tulips at Pike Place Market

Pike Place Excursion 5

Had a nice excursion down to Pike Place Market yesterday. The weather was a lovely 72 degrees and the tulips were in full bloom. Many a gentleman was seen picking assorted flower stems from white buckets for that special person in their life. I couldn’t help but snap some pictures. The petals were so rich in [...]

Springtime in the Rockies

_MG_1284-processed

I took a trip out to western Montana last month and shot this photo right before a snowstorm hit. The weather is very changeable during the springtime in the Rockies. Sometimes 0-60 degrees in a matter of days. Well…maybe not that bad. But close! After I finished taking snapshots, I immediately rushed back to where [...]

French Fries — It’s What’s for Dinner

French Fries

Know what the best part of being an adult is, kids? French fries for dinner! These looked so golden-good on the tray last night I couldn’t help but snap a picture. The fries may or may not have been accompanied with some chopped sautéed onions, bacon, and ketchup. (Wish I could’ve added cheese. Curse you, [...]

‘Seeing Red’ Reviewed by A Georgia Peach Award Committee Member

Stars

Was very honored to see a five star review written for my novella “Seeing Red!” The praise came from Georgia Peach Award committee member Melanie C. Duncan. ”Seeing Red” was not nominated for the Georgia Peach Award (GPA) but it is extremely honoring to be read and reviewed by a committee member. For those who aren’t familiar, the [...]
