Friday Fragments & Freewrites

So. The boys vetoed the cherry pie. But it was really good cherry pie. Mia only liked the cherries. She doesn't like the crust. Who ever heard of such a thing?? Who's kids are they anyway?? The crust's the best part. I used 2 cups of organic flour and 2 sticks of organic butter in that crust. So guess who's eating an entire pie crust with lattice topping?
Gives organic lard ass a whole new meaning.

I was sitting in our living room, sewing sparkly netting on Mia's halloween costume. It was early Sunday morning, and I had a headache, and not enough coffee, and the sun was shining in my eyes.
Mia looks at me and literally jumps back
Mommy, you have Gramps' face...
I smile. What honey?
When I just looked at you, you had Gramps' face. Kind of confused and worried at the same time. Are... you gonna cry?
No, honey. I love that I can have Gramps' face sometimes. That makes me happy.

So it's cold here. I'm gonna keep complaining. I bought that saran wrap stuff for my windows. You know, the plastic stuff that you hit with a blow dryer and it shrink wraps your windows. The box says it can increase your window's R-value up to 90%. I went to Home Depot and asked for the saran wrap for insulating windows. Those Home Depot guys looked at me like I had two heads. But they knew exactly what I was talking about. Jerks.
So I tell my friend J that I'm gonna try and shrink wrap my windows.
So ghetto.
She laughs and says Oh Michelle, this is gonna take your home to a whole new level...

I think my house makes her a little dizzy.

Can't imagine why...

I like color

the white is now gold

the outside matches the inside
kinda looks like a giant easter basket exploded on our block

I bet no one will even notice the shrink wrapped windows...

have a great weekend!


  1. I love your house.

    And I hate it when people know perfectly well what you are talking about yet insist on making you feel like an ass. You got your point across, right? I had a German guy on the phone the other day, and I told him IN GERMAN that he did not have the right number, so he corrects me and goes "it's wrong number" (in German, obviously). Stupid ass.

  2. love your house, such charm and character love the colors

  3. Yours is a beautiful home, as I knew it would be.
    Now as to the guys at Home Depot- I delight in making fellas like that shake their head at the old lady. For some reason, it cracks me up.

  4. HOly shit is your house colorful!! And though I thought I wouldn't like it, I DO!! It just WORKS!!!

    Hallie :)

    Be nice to the HD guys - HD pays my mortgage!! ;)

  5. Too bad they don't have colored shrink wrap!

  6. I love all the color in your house! I would do that but I can barely match my clothes much less color coordinate walls! I've thought about trying the saran wrap for windows....hmm, wonder if it really makes your windows more efficient?

  7. I LOVE the colors! My son would be in heaven. This place looks like beige hell. No color at all. I'd love to paint a wall red but my husband cringes every time I mention it. :)

  8. I love, love, love your house! Love it!!! When can you come over and pick colors for mine?

  9. You're funny, Michelle. I LOVE your house! It's very cheerful.

  10. I l ove your dining room. LOVE it. Did you do the mosaic tile on the table yourself?

    Organic Lard Ass-love it.

  11. I love your house! It has personality. And laughing at the organic lard ass thing...

  12. Your house is so CUTE!! I love it! i love that adorable light by the staircase. i did NOT notice any shrink wrap :).

    Im totally jealous btw. im trapped in a suburbia, unoriginal house with no cute character whatsoever :(

  13. All the colors in your house are awesome!

  14. I am sorry to stop by so late. I am catching up on FF post today. Busy week and my birthday kept me a little busy. :(

    I LOVE your house. How fun and bright and happy!


so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
