something falls out at the back

According to my doctor I have an extreme Vitamin D deficiency.

Search google images for "d" - you'll find the strangest, most random-seeming collection!

Here are a few of my favorites:

Yeah, I don't know either.

A safe but sometimes chilly way of recalling the past is to force open a crammed drawer.
 If you are searching for anything in particular you don't find it,
 but something falls out at the back that is often more interesting.

out of the closet

I spent part of the weekend cleaning out my closet. Trust me, it needed it.

After trying on EVERY. SINGLE. ITEM. in my closet, and getting the thumbs up or down from my co-conspirator, I had 2 piles: keep, and donate.  The donate pile was twice as big as the keepers. This is a good thing. Now my closet is filled with only those things that fit and flatter.

We noted a few "holes" in my wardrobe - a couple more jackets (1 gray, 1 in a print), trousers that aren't denim (I have 8 pair of jeans, and virtually no other bottoms), and "lounge wear;" (the grungy, ill-fitting pjs and tees went in the donate pile, or garbage, depending in the degree of blech).


 Everything is grouped by item. Next phase is to organize by color and style.


In the meantime, getting dressed is a pleasure, instead of a chore.

Plus? I feel cute again. Yes, that matters. A lot.

every leaf speaks bliss

Finally, and not a moment too soon, autumn is making an appearance. I couldn't be more ready.

All from etsy:








Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.

to make us rejoice

Fun, happy colors, inside and out -

there is no color in this world
 that is not intended to make us rejoice. - John Calvin

to sit in a good chair

There's a lot to love here - pink details on bookcases snugged up under the arch...

the cool and serene bedroom beyond...

everything here...

a red staircase...

this chair (!!!)

Comfort rules. 
You want to be able to sit in a good chair 
comfortably for a few hours
 and be able to talk and enjoy a glass of wine. 
There's nothing worse than sitting in an uncomfortable chair.
