Aufweider sehen

This will be my last post on WordPress. I’m just tired of the limited decorative options here. So, hopefully I’ll be seeing you all at my new location. Hannah’s Happy Hovel

Instant Gratification

January 23, 2009 at 4:22 pm (Addlepatedness, Doings, Five-Foot Fashionista, Hannah's Little Blog, Pictures)

You all know that I love to sew. What you might not know is that I have a serious issue with projects taking too long. If I can’t wrap it up in a week, my patience starts running a bit thin. So, I have plan. I am recreating a dress that I saw in a picture, and I’m going to spare no expense with detail. Overcast allowance finishing. 1/2″ pleating around the hem. I’ll post pictures as I go along, but for now you can see my inspiration.

The Shadow of Your Wings

I finally broke down & bought it. This book is peaches and divine cream. I’ve already been able to read through the first two songs. (and you all know that I’m the worst sight-reader in the universe)  Lovely arrangements, and very true to the original music. I love it. Hooray Fernando!! P.S. also, if any of you haven’t seen the Ortega’s new baby, you should go see her at fernandoortega.com

Drool

January 15, 2009 at 7:01 pm (Addlepatedness, Doings, Hannah's Little Blog, Pictures, Reviews)

Most of you probably know of Williams-Sonoma, the ultra-pricey, ultra-heirloom, ultra-useful kitchen store. I’ve been to their Rancho Cucamunga & Spokane outlets, and it’s an absolute dream. *sigh* So, how on earth could someone even consider getting any of that gorgeous Le Crueset or All-Clad? Well, one thing is to set up a registry. It’s lots of fun, and it doesn’t have to be a bridal registry. Birthdays count, too. So, even if I don’t get any, at least I have a compiled “drool list.” Williams-Sonoma

Sunday Afternoon Drama Installment 1 of ?

January 12, 2009 at 12:37 pm (Doings, Hannah's Little Blog, Pictures)

When we came home from church yesterday, we found there was blood in our yard, and Roxy (our dog) was on the porch cringing and looking very uncomfortable. I can’t blame her, as we soon out that she had a bullet (courtesy of neighbors) lodged somewhere in her chest. Ouch.

We didn’t know if she would make it through the night, but this morning she got up, wagged her tail, ate, and generally acted out of character for a dog who was visited by the Reaper. We’re still not sure if she’ll make it, but today we are going to try and see about keeping the bullet-hole from getting infected. Our other dog (Tiny) is still missing, so I’ll keep posting as we find out more.

Levity Injection

Well, that lovely aforementioned snow has decided to become mush. Our driveway has turned into a crazy ride, and everything is cold and drippy. That naturally will tend to drag a body down, so for a happy pill, I have resorted to a favorite artist of mine.

Toe Candy

Wow, do we have snow. Like, up-to-my-knees type snow, and it was perfect for sledding on Christmas. (Rachel, that was a blast! ;-)   So naturally, I get kinda cold. Enter 4 pairs of awesome socks. On Christmas morning, I suddenly didn’t feel so cold, because Mom gave me some sweet woolly knee-hi’s + the Underhill family gave me a pair of (insert drum roll) SMARTWOOLS!!! Ok, I know people hate schmoozy confessions, but honestly, every time I go to the Sportsman SkiHaus, I stand stupified in front of all those lovely socks. And slowly, I touch them. Enough said. Anyhow, these socks are SO cute, (green, hooray!)  SO warm, and SO comfortable, I really wonder whether I will ever see my feet again. My feet are happy feet.

my cheap lunch

December 24, 2008 at 3:05 pm (Doings)

We keep an assortment of chickens, so we get these cool green eggs. Not only is green my favorite color, but green eggs are delightfully Seussian. Here is my cheap omelet:

Leggies!

 Megan & I have so much fun sewing our own leggings! Nice leggies aren’t very cheap, but with some scrap Lycra and about 1 1/2 hours of extra time, you can have really nice custom ones! These are my new ones, made of the leftovers from a swimsuit.

Mom says they look like something Mick Jagger would wear, but 80’s stigma aside, they are warm & fun to run around in.
