at the moment ...

i am wearing another one of these.
the dog is going crazy at the back door because a rabbit has decided to taunt her to no end.
i am eating chips ... actually i am on my second bowl of chips.
ordering some temporary tattoos for a friend's birthday. she wants a tattoo so this will help her decide what (and where) to put it.
listening to nina simone while ordering said tattoos and eating before mentioned chips.
relieved that work is done ... the kitchen is clean ... and the plants have been watered too.
hearing drip drops of rain against the window signaling a storm is on the way.
enjoying the fact that even though this day was an uneventful one, it was a good one nonetheless.

what about you?
what's happening at the moment ...?

EAT ... WEAR ... MAKE ... LOVE

i don't like tomatoes in my salad, but i would eat that entire plate since it is topped with two of my favorite things (fresh herbs and cheese).  the cape i would wear everyday.  that planter has been added to my list of things to diy (it's acutally a bird feeder kit from lowes) and the bench is just my style ... clean and simple. you may remember my first attempt at creating a  bench here  and i absolutely love a mid century inspired piece and think this bench would look perfect placed in front of a window to house an ever increasing collection of plants. (dear husband if you are reading this my apologies, but i'm sure we can make something similiar, right?!)

what are you eating, wearing, making, or loving these days?

so you may remember i mentioned i was working on a bench and i'm pleased to present to you the finished product.  what do you think?

the wood has weathered many years and it took a tag team effort between the hubby and i to get it back to all it's glory (or at least to a presentable state). we didn't use any stain on it ... just some polyurethane.  and the legs were made by a friend. this is the second wood project i've attempted and now that this one is complete, i'm sure there will be another one to come! stay tuned ... you never know what will pop up around here next!

have you made anything lately?

may i remember what's important in life and not waste time with the unnecessary.
may i live today as if it were my last ... enjoying every minute.
may i love like i've never loved before.
may i trust, believe and know that i can do anything.

i will be thankful for the hardships and struggles.  they are making me stronger.
i will embrace happiness and joy.  they are making things easier.

i'm thankful for my dreams as i know i'm moving closer and they will soon be within reach.
i'm thankful for the now as it is teaching and preparing me for what's to come.

hello there people of the blog.  we made it another week and i hope it treated you kind.  i'm glad the hubby made it safely home (after a week of being away) and the chocolate fudge cake i made him seemingly turned out well! any plans for the weekend? we are meeting up with friends tonight and have a birthday party to attend this weekend too...fingers crossed, there will be no rain.  and in between all that, i hope to make some headway on a bench we are making and have it closer to being complete.  i'll share once it's finished ... no tutorial though as we have been fighting with a piece of reclaimed wood and my sweet boy and i had to tag team on this thing to get it all sanded up and ready for its debut.

and now for some links to love... cue the music (i've had this song on repeat in my head for awhile and equally like the acoustic version too).

add some texture to your home with something from this collection.

thank you pinterest for this cute way to wrap small gifts.

hooked on this show from hgtv and the way chip & joanna transform the ugliest homes into true gems. not to mention their farmhouse is a dream of mine.

this bag!
and wishing i had a scoop of that!

and lets bring this thing home with some cute pictures of a rescue dog and her little boy.

peace to your heart.
