I went to see the band Caravan of Thieves Friday night with my friends Sharon and Nancy. We had a fabulous time. This band is amazing. I want their song Raise the Dead played at my funeral, seriously. They also do a quirky cover of Bohemian Rhapsody. If they are ever in your town go see them!!

We have another Wellness Challenge at work. We have to work out for 30 minutes at least 5 times a week. We can also pledge to lose weight. I said I would lose 10 pounds in ten weeks. I set the bar low. Anyway I have been randomly searching the interwebs for workouts. Today I found this one. I tell you what, 10 minutes of burpees is cruel and unusual punishment!!

I wish I had kept my clothes from the 60's and 70's and especially my mom's things from the 40's and 50's. We weren't much for saving things. Maybe because we moved so often, we traveled light. I like how women now mix old with new. Vintage fabrics are so interesting. And let's face it, certain styles are just timeless, aren't they?
Pretty vintage midi skirt from Tender Turning Quiet
1940's vintage jacket from Sweetheart of the Rodeo

I love this site called Alvhem Makleri I think they sell real estate and also are a decorating firm??? Anyway, their inspiration rooms are delightful. I love all the white backgrounds with pops of color. The rooms are so sunny, don't you think? I can imagine curling up on one of those sofas with a cat, a good book and a cup of tea. Hmmmmm

wasting time doing important research again on Pinterest and lordy I found another way to spin my wheels There is a website called Random Tutorial Generator. You can go to the site and click on a button to bring up a random DIY. But what I am most excited about is the search feature it has where you can find a tutorial for just about anything from their data base.
I clicked on the button and here are a few of the random tutorials that came up!
Arm warmers via Brassy Apple
No sew scarf via Mary Janes and Galoshes
Pendant Lampshade via Design Sponge
Cherry Tree Wall Mural via Censational Girl
Fabric Eggs via Lola Nova
I can see a lot of armchair crafting in my future.

It's hard to believe that we are sneaking up on another holiday. I know it's a few weeks away. Even so, I decided to share these creative hearts with you. Aren't they pretty? I haven't forgot that I promised to roll out my New Year's goals. I'm still fine tuning them but I will share them soon. Here's a hint - the book club selection for this month figures in. Enjoy the hearts!!
