Here's What I Know...


1 - Going to a craft store can inspire you and crush all your dreams. You get all excited planning your next project, imagining said project on display in your home causing a flood of compliments and admiration...only to slowly realize that you're not that clever and you don't have the time or skills and you're not Martha Stewart. Thanks, craft stores.

2 - Fall fashion is starting to surface. Be still my beating heart...

3 - I should probably fall in love with a new style of dining furniture, bein's that the style I want can run anywhere from $2,000 - $26,000. Yes. Twenty. Six. Grand.
4 - I was once mocked for wearing an apron whilst cooking. I don't know what it is about wearing an apron, but once I put that on I know how to make every dish on this planet. I can also keep house like Donna Reed. I don't wear an apron all the time...Heaven knows the kind of power those things contain.

5 - Using a power drill, even if just to remove a shelf from the wall, makes me feel like I can take on any home improvement project by myself. You and I both know that would never happen, thanks to the reality check I have in craft stores.

he he he. i wore an apron today when i attempted my first apple pie "mac" style (like this one: http://www.evilmadscientist.com/article.php/ApplePie). i never would have attempted the task sans apron. they do contain muchas power. especially when worn over a skirt.

$26,000 really? Oh, dear. You read the same magazines I do. (What a world.) BUT, I have no doubt that Donna Reed and Martha should watch their collective house tending and home crafting backs---especially if you're wearing your apron and wielding your drill! You go, girl. . .

Do you love Windsor chairs? Me too!

I had been looking for them----affordable ones for years!

Then, a restaurant that we lived near in NH had a sale as they were redecorating----they were getting rid of all their antique Windsors, for----guess? I believe I paid 30.00 a piece for them. Oh, joy!!

And I love them still....

I for one was inspired by your apron wearing and I now have several in my collection! It makes me feel cute while cooking PLUS, we all know how my kateastrophes go so I NEED an apron in a bad bad way!
