Life Lately

Hot Hot Hot
It's a dry heat
sunflowers blooming
dark skin
family weekend
peanut butter-caramel-smoked salt-chocolate chip cookies
hamburgers and hotdogs
gringo tacos
senor taco twice
the smell of homemade bread
blackberry jam
banana cake
hubby playing mechanic
me playing grandma

I love the picture in this post
this would be another tomboy look
I wish wearing boots with your wedding dress
would have been in style
when I got married
tulle, lots of tulle

these pictures remind me of my
amachi and haytachi's  house
when you looked out their kitchen window
they had a field that led to the barn

they lived in a white house
it was beautiful
 homey and elegant
all at the same time
two stories
on the second floor
was an area for sitting
I will never forget that black l920's telephone
I wish I had it today

there was an area off of the carport
fenced in by a white picket fence
and a clothes line
we loved to play in that area
I will never forget the smell of her sweet peas
she always had planted in her garden

In the dining room
was an enormous wooden table
with a wooden bench on one side
and a padded bench attached to the wall
on the other side
my amachi always sat at the head of the table
lots of dinners and playing poker happened in this room
I miss that dining room

 The dining room had a bar area
they had a big glass case
 that held the most beautiful bar ware
it's probably why I have an attachment to
beautiful glassware trimmed in gold

Most of my growing up years
was spent at this home
I sure do miss it

My Tomboy Style

I grew up with two older brothers.
That officially made me a tomboy.
I wanted to do everything they did.
Who had time for Barbies,
when you could build forts and shoot BB guns.
My favorite thing to do on Saturday morning
was to head out the back door,
jump in my Dad's truck with my brothers,
and do sheepherder stuff,
all day long.
Sunday was always church.
No hanging with the boys until after church.

I love JCrew styling.
These styles are right up my alley.
I would call these outfits
tomboy look.

Sunday Home Tour

I don't think that
I would choose this color of grey to paint my walls,
but for some reason,
I would have no problem
living in this home.
Love, Love, Love,
the black couch, shutters, and the framed pictures on the wall.
I could definitely cook in that kitchen
and I love all the wine bottles in the dining room.
The designer, Lizzy Carney, took one whole room
and made it into a huge closet.
I want to get undressed in that closet.

This has nothing to do with the pictures,
but I came across this on line catalog from design mom,
and couldn't stop smiling at their clever advertisement,
check it out,
it takes a few seconds to start and be sure and watch it till the end.
