This is the new plush I’ve been working on. We make cinnamon rolls for breakfast almost once a week, so they are a family favorite. I bought more “icing” today so I hope to get more made so I can get the shop updated.
I have been buying stuff for next week’s birthday party. I love the little ice creams. They are actually scented bubbles that smell like the flavor of ice cream. They are sold in packs of three for $1.00. I also bought punch balloons, and these adorable lollipops. I bought two more bags of the lollipops to use for order treats. I like how they are so small and such great colors!
We also spent far too much money this morning buying all three of the Hayao Miyazaki’s movies (thanks Heatherica for the heads up, I had no idea 3 were releasing today) and Harry Potter, and Mirror Mask (since we didn’t own it and had a hard time finding it when it was first released) I am quite sure the lady who rang us up thought we were freaks (which maybe we are?)
I recently made some new pillows for our couch. I had this great black and white fabric from Ikea for a little while now and wanted to use a bit of it for something. Its nice and thick, so great for pillows that get wear and tear.
Someone asked to see a bigger photo of the livingroom, this is one side. We recently moved the “buffet” table in here. I am one of those people who is constantly rearranging furniture. I think i get it from my mom :) I was looking through my old house photos of Flickr and thinking how very much I need to update them. I took most of the older photos when we had just moved in, and now there is a lot more on the walls etc.
I am really excited about tomorrow because Howl’s Moving Castle
and the new Harry Potter The Goblet Of Fire
both come out to dvd. I haven’t seen either yet so should be a real treat.
I have had this foot stool (for some reason I don’t care for the word ottoman) I’d perfer to call it a foot stool, even though it has the word “stool” in it, which means: Fecal matter from a single bowel movement.
Ahh gotta love dictionary.com. “Ottoman” just gives me bad vibes.
I love finding textiles at Goodwill (come on warm weather, I am READY for yardsales!) I found a big piece of green velour like fabric that will make really great plant life plush. I also couldn’t resist this heart fabric (which they had less of and cost more then the green stuff) It matches the heart fabric napkins I found at Target after Valentines day for something like a dollar for two.
Now I am about to go make some bread because I am making homemade spilt pea soup for dinner tonight with fake ham too. Since the cold weather will be gone before we know it (here’s hoping) I have been making lots and lots of soup. The other day I made veggie fake chicken soup and it was quite the hit. Tom even took the leftovers to work, and we are not usually good at leftovers kind of people. Mostly leftovers tend to sit and sit till I feel bad and throw them out.
