The other night, we were invited to dinner at our dear friend Annie’s house.
Annie is an extremely sweet lady, talented artist, and very good cook:
she made us squash and asparagus with pine nuts, polenta and venison
sausage from a deer her friend hunted and processed. It was very delicious,
and I would have taken a picture of it – but I’m afraid I gobbled it up far too
fast for that to happen! Instead I wandered around her tiny little abode,
and took pictures of her treasures. Her house is elf-sized, and filled with
dolls, dead-things and books. It is very peaceful and kept very tidy, with
meticulously organized and labeled boxes on shelves for art supplies
that make me very happy (and envious/inspired!). I have a dozen old
tins crammed with all sorts of flotsam in stacks on my floor instead, and
it’s hell to find an eraser, or sharpener when you need one. I lived for
many years in a one-room house, and living in an itty-bitty space really
does force you to be more organized and picky about what you choose
to keep. I’ve been getting rid of loads of clothes and things lately, and it
feels great. More to come! I’m going to sell some real treasures from my
wardrobe soon – if you’re a lady with a size 8-8.5 foot, you’re going to be
very happy, because I’ve got tons of shoes and boots that I must part with!
Etsy or Ebay though? I just can’t decide. Thoughts and opinions are welcome!
This is Annie. Isn’t she adorable? I love her a lot.
She is wearing a Metallica shirt and is covered in bees. This makes me love her even more.
This is the famous Halloween hat that I adore. I wish she’d wear it all the time.
