Welcome to my Bed & Make Your Own Damn Breakfast

April 10th, 2008

My subject title makes no sense, other then I’ve not made my bed in days… and have skipped breakfast for weeks. Which is really bad, because I’m one of those peeps who makes the bed as soon as I hop out of it! So here’s a little of what’s been going on…

I’m gushing and blushing - I’ve received some wonderful emails asking if I’m ok… why am I MIA… did I know that moss was growing on my blog… all wonderful and I thank you for your concern. I’m so touched!

Also in my in-box… but the big in-box that’s at the end of my driveway… some mailbox love from That silly lil’ Doe! I’m going to be very quiet. Shhh. Quiet. You’re getting very relaxed. I have a nice afternoon nappy time story for you. Shh. No talking. Just enjoy:

Shroonie Love from That silly lil' Doe
Once upon a time, that sweet lil’ Doe sent some shroonie love to Oregon.

Shroonie Love from That silly lil' Doe
A teenie tiny little shroonie tea set. The plate no bigger than a dime. Who could use such a small set?

Annie Love from That silly lil' Doe
This is who. A sweet lil’ Annie.

Annie Love from That silly lil' Doe
Annie is an Annie… but Annie is not her name. She’s been too busy settling in (with her new best friend Mimi and the adorable pineapple pincushion Auntie Karen brought back from Maui), to pick out a name for herself. I think she needs help and suggestions.

Annie Love from That silly lil' Doe
I think someone is right at home! Isn’t she just the cutest thing ever! Doe adopted my Annie for me from here. Wowie, zowie - be prepared for the second cutest Annies on earth (that’s right… you know who’s got the #1)!

But wait… there’s more:
Mailbox Love from That silly lil' Doe
Sigh. Marie Clarie Idées Love. Oh thank you Doe!!!

But wait… there’s EVEN MORE!
Recently my fabulous friend Deanna of Domestic Chicky had a contest on her other blog - The Apronista, for a DARLING apron from Marie-Madeline Studio. Out of 399 comments… mine got drawn! Get out of here! This is the cutest apron! Oh I love it so. Thank you Deanna and Marie-Madeline!

I was going to post about what I’ve been working on… but I suddenly want to nap. Part II after my nappy-nap.

    Her name should be Sweet Silly Sarah! :D

  2. The fabulous Lissa allegedly said:

    Of course I think she should be named after a fabulous type person, so “Lovely Lissa” is perfect name! LOL I might add, I was a redhead…..once… (now I am a fat blonde/grey old bag)

    I got one of those wee tea sets but with cows ! its super cute (until bastard cat knocked a couple of them off the top of the breadbox grrrr) and I am loving your shelf! how freaking gorgeous is everything on and above your shelf???


  3. The fabulous blop allegedly said:

    Yowser….I thought you were just napping for a while…oh my..lookie at the goodies!!!
    Love all them, specially the annie and of course I will be stealing that apron, next time I’m at your house….so don’t wonder where it went!!
    Fair warning!!

    Ohhh chock full of eye candy goodness. Love it all. Doe is so cute and I love that mushroom stuff. And Nicole’s little Annie’s are adorable. Love the shelf and can’t wait to SEE IT IN PERSON IN A LITTLE MORE THAN A MONTH.

    Although I did have a dream about you last night.. starring in my first pre-market stress dream was YOU in a bar wearing a HUGE kind of mod looking Laugh-In style green and white polka dot hat. I have no idea what that was about. Seriously. Anyway, the bar was in the ratty hotel E had us booked into and it was between our rooms. I called your cell from the hall and out you popped from the bar. Man, what is up with my mind when I’m not using it?

    OMG PKM… that is SO funny! Hey, I think I need to pull a Sarah Silverman and make a video… I’m effing Rowan & Martin. I’m honored to be in your crazy dream. Will it come true??? We shall see! - Monica

  5. The fabulous Mary allegedly said:

    Wow! What great stuff! I really love those little mushrooms — they’re just too cute.

  6. The fabulous Katie allegedly said:

    Where is the pineapple next to Annie from? Love your stuff :) Thanks for sharing!

  7. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:

    Love it all and the shelf of goodness is wonderful.

  8. The fabulous Connie W allegedly said:

    Oh, just too too cute!
    And as usual, you crack me up. (My little grandson tells me that, only he says in his five-year-old voice “Gwammie, You Cwack me up”…
    Love it!

  9. The fabulous Amanda allegedly said:

    I was worried about you, but didn’t e-mail you. Shame on me! I have missed you! :)

    That Doe is so sweet. I love every thing she gave you. Annie and Mimi look like they’re getting along just fine!

  10. The fabulous jen duncan allegedly said:

    I love a happy post. I wasn’t worried. Just assumed you were busy like me. btw, your little ‘ironing station’ is an inspiration in the studio that should be nearing completion this week!!!

  11. The fabulous ellen crimi-trent allegedly said:

    glad to see you are back!! I too have lots of work that I find blogging hard to do. That Doe is very cute!! So is it just me or do you think Bill Maher needs to get some better guests? I have not been impressed since he came back and sometimes I find myself sleepy which never used to happen!! Come on Bill where are the fun mix of Celebs and political people?

  12. The fabulous Cheryl allegedly said:

    What a whole bunch of sweetness!!! Annie looks right at home :-)! The shelf is so stinkin cute
    (that’s a Doeism :-))!!

  13. The fabulous Trelly allegedly said:

    She is lovely!and so sweet…

  14. The fabulous Amy allegedly said:

    Ya know, in general, “It is hard being a Raggedy Anne in a Barbie Doll world,” but not when you are as cute as she is!

  15. The fabulous Yellowgirl allegedly said:

    Glad to see your posting again….busy world we live in….but your posts make my day and make me think I could just walk up the hill and see you…glad you’re back! L

  16. The fabulous Wendy allegedly said:

    I need a nap too after that great post. Lots of wonderful things popping up in the mail. All the gifties look like they found a great home.

  17. The fabulous Nanna Jamma allegedly said:

    Adorable teaset and adorable Annie from the definitely adorable Doe - you are a lucky, lucky girl! I am not good at thinking of cute and wonderful names for things - that’s your department, my friend! I’ll give it a good think, though.
    The apron you won is too pretty to wear for cooking. I think you should wear the apron and the honkin’ green and white polka dot hat in Pam’s dream. You’d be stylin’ girl! Pictures, please!

  18. The fabulous Kristin J allegedly said:

    Killing me with the Sarah Silverman response to PKM! I tried to watch that video while working out on the elliptical and almost ruptured a disc or a tendon or something.

    Your annie is definitely a Sophie.
    Glad you’re “back”

  19. The fabulous wendy allegedly said:

    Hey Kristin, thats what I was going to say! She is a Sophie for sure! Not just because of my Sophie, but really, truly, it suits her!
    Glad to see your back Monica - and a treat to see your special shelf up close.

  20. The fabulous Doris allegedly said:

    I think she looks like a Gertrude. Gertrude Lou. “Gertie” for short.

    Glad you’re back!

  21. The fabulous Moog allegedly said:

    I used to make my bed every day - it was like I couldn’t start the day without doing so. It all started when we were robbed while we were out and I was actually embarrased that the robbers and policeman saw my unmade bed. Now, I pull up the covers - and it’s good enough (even for a break-in).
    I love your Annie - I have one of her cousins. Warning ladies, they go FAST! Nicole’s little touches on them are so precious.
    Mimi also has a young cousin, called Mia because she was MIA for several days due to our dyslexic postman. Her coloring isn’t quite as bright as Mimi’s, but she is a little “Gem.”

  22. The fabulous Nanette allegedly said:

    Your display area is so beautiful and the additions so special. What nice things. Its good to hear from you.

  23. The fabulous Jona allegedly said:

    Oh goodie! There you are!

    What a beautiful little dolly and she fits right in with everybody else on that shelf (I hope they are treating her well). Now I’m curious and must go find that Sarah Silverman skit.

  24. The fabulous Lisa, with one 's' allegedly said:

    She is too cute! I think her name should be “Coco” cause every sewing room needs a little coco!

  25. The fabulous Doe allegedly said:

    I’m so glad you took a break from your busy, busy schedule. I’m loving that gorgeous apron! “Annie” looks happy up on that ledge. She looks like a Lilo. Eh, what do you think?

  26. The fabulous Jackie allegedly said:

    Thank you, Thank you, for coming back, I was really wondering what happened too!! What lovely gifts you received and what wonderful friends. I just love the bright picture of your studio, love it!!

  27. The fabulous Sonnja allegedly said:

    What a lovely doll!

  28. The fabulous kathleen allegedly said:

    Ooh, what a great mail week you had! It all goes so perfectly in your colorful studio space! You Lucky Thing! :)

  29. The fabulous Karen allegedly said:

    Anna Bella. That’s her name. It was whispered in my ear. And it means Beautiful Anna–just what she is.

  30. The fabulous Patty/MODKID allegedly said:

    Yo, yo, yo! I’m so envious of all your new goodies! I’ve been checking on your blog from time to time to see what you’ve been up to and thinking to myself… Hmmm, she must be up to sumtin’ good. I’ve been busy as heck myself and my bed hasn’t been made in weeks (and I can’t remember when I had breakfast last!) so I know how it is! I hope we can still meet up at Market. Can’t believe that’s only 4 weeks away! eeeek! I have so much still to do! Glad to see you back in blogland. toodooloo

  31. The fabulous Penny allegedly said:

    WOW, you are the luckiest! Annie and her little shrooms are the best!

  32. The fabulous June allegedly said:

    Oh, what gorgeous treasures showed up at your house. I am so tickled for you!

  33. The fabulous Angelina allegedly said:

    I cannot stand how cute that mushroom set is and I don’t think I’d advise you to have me over to your house unless you hide them first.

  34. The fabulous Knitsational allegedly said:

    Oh my goodness! So adorable. All of it! Just found your blog. I only wishI had found you sooner!

  35. The fabulous Kim allegedly said:

    Annie is so cute, but I just loved your cheery cherry tablerunner hanging on the wall. I seemed to remember that you had posted the instruction for that tablerunner on your blog and after digging through some of my “Must Do’s” - it must have been meant to be, because I found it. I just wanted to tell you that I have it almost put together (it was late when I started it and then the dog rolled through the pieces) but they were just the best directions. I don’t recall ever putting anything together so easily. So a Big Thank You for my new (almost finished) tablerunner.


  36. The fabulous Jennifer Paganelli allegedly said:

    congrats on the apron!! Those gals make beautiful things. Jennifer

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
