have you seen Steampunk style?

I am so digging this style! Not everyone's cup of tea I know. Not something I could pull off in my house as Bub would want it all to WORK and to be allowed to take it all APART... I'm still searching for parts to my coffee table he "fixed" for me!

This Steampunk home is for sale.

 Check out the kitchen especially the stove!

Reminds me of the home in the movie Casper with all the neat gadgets and gizmos.

fall dreaming

I'm dreaming of Fall. A real New England or Pac Northwest glorious colorful crisp night air FALL.

With apple and pumpkin festivals. Steaming mugs of hot chocolate and apple cider. Snuggling in with a good book before a roaring fire.

Cozy warm layered tops, flowing long skirts with tall leather boots

instead of breezy dresses

and endless days of

I'll just have to keep dreaming as this Texas summer is fighting hard to stick around. We broke heat records this week when once again the temps climbed to 108. My yard looks like it is changing seasons but it is really just dead and my trees dropped their leaves months ago because of the severe drought.  I sure do miss the Autumns I experienced in Seattle. All the lovely reds, golds, oranges covering Mt Rainer in spectacular display. Sigh.

Today though we are blessed with a break in the sweltering temps. I have my windows open! My A/C bill is thankful! There is a small promise of rain for the next days. I pray it happens! My water bill would be most happy.


how I never knew how much I want to get out and go places until we became a one car family and I can't. I'm a homebody normally. I hate driving in traffic or fighting crowds at the stores. But now that Hubby is using my car while we wait to get another one I am thinking of a gazillion things I want to do.
People I want to visit. Projects I want to finish but I *need* to get things to do them. Places I want to go shop like the huge sale this weekend. Soccer practice. That pesky craving for Starbucks Java Chip Frap.  And on and on and on.

Not complaining at all. Just thinking this is hilarious because as soon as I have my truck back I'll want to stay home and hermit once my errands are done.
