Four Eyes


If you are a glasses wearer, you need to consider this company. Frankly had I know about them I would have purchased my new pair (yes I already broke my vintage 6mo old glasses) from them. All frames are sold for $95 and fitted with anti-reflective lenses, are vintage styled, they allow at home try-ons, and for every pair sold a pair is donated to someone in need through non-profit organizations.

Since I don't have any childern and there are none on the horizon I love these beds so much I would consider giving up sharing a queen bed and just putting these babies on wheels. Lucy and Ricky style. I have a feeling my husband would not agree.

Where have you been all my life?

(These outdoor lights pictured above thrown in just because they are so pretty)
I feel like oddly enough I'm always on the hunt for good new lighting for our house. Maybe one reason is I tend to live in dark places... Until recently we dealt with using the ceiling lights in the dining room and our new (my old craft room) bedroom. They are hideous, and broken, and I've been looking for replacments both my husband and I can agree on. Honestly I have no idea how he would feel about these, and I dont yet know their price, but oh my are you pretty! Go to their website to view more beautiful lighting: http://www.globallighting.com/

Tomorrow I might finally take the plunge and buy a new sewing machine. I've been saving my pennies and debating if I should or not. Really as much as I appreciate the machine my parents bought me years ago, it's just not cutting it anymore. I'm like a drunk driver on that thing and I can't sew a straight line to save my life (in comparison to sewing at school, where I was pretty passable). I've got several alterations in line, and a purse, but I'd also really like to try to make one of these:
And I love that this one is tweed!

I recently stumbled upon this blog and it fits right into my current mood of wanting to be fancy, 60's and french! (blame it on An Education) http://blog.mrslilien.com/
