*Portlandia, a show about my new home, airs tomorrow on IFC and I'm a bit geeked about it. There has been so much buzz around town surrounding the whole thing. Most everyone is thrilled but the hipsters seem somewhat upset that their eccentricities are being picked on. Damn hipsters. (Don't know exactly what Portlandia is about? Check this out.)
*I have a few crochet projects I've been keeping myself busy with and then I saw this post (and this one) by Mandy and now I must crochet a rag rug. Last night I started the process by cutting into my thrifted sheet stash. Hopefully I'll have something to share soon. Have any of you ever made a rag rug? If so, any words of advice?
*Yesterday I bought this small vintage suitcase at Goodwill.
With space being so limited around here, I'm constantly searching for new ways to store/hide the kids (mainly the girl's) toys. So much of her toy collection seems to consist of weird, random junk that I don't recall buying but always has a way of showing up. Plus, it's usually crap I don't want to look at. A pretty suitcase solves that problem nicely. Now I only need about ten more.
*Last week Jessie sent me a jar of Pumpkin Glow body scrub by Bella Lucce and it's now my new favorite body scrub because the smell is just amazing. I know pumpkin season is pretty much over, but I had to go out and buy the stuff for pumpkin bread because every time I took a shower I would get a craving.
Well, I suppose I should go tend to the ailing princess (*rolls eyes). Hopefully I'll be back in a few days with a book review or two, because oh yes, I've still found time to read.
