Man, you guys have some nice historical pieces. I love the Victorian era. They loved worldly décor and its neat to see the way they incorporated it into their homes. My mother has a similar lamp that is inspired by Egypt.

MM, living out west like you and I do, good antiques are hard to come by in these parts, being as the good stuff brought out here by covered wagon got left on the plains. How hard it must have been to just leave treasured heirlooms behind in the dust. How glad I am they came. The history of it all is my favorite reading subject.

GG and Kayelle, your homes look like show homes. Lovely! Mine isn't a wreck, but you can definitely tell I'd rather cook than clean. A lot of our furnishings are near-antiques, though. As in, old and handed-down. Sorta "comfy chic" without the "chic".

Mine too. The history of all things domestic is my thing: daily life, food, housing, fads, employment, social structure and values - so fascinating.

Glad you like that line, Michelle. We have a lot of furniture that had been my parents', or my aunt and uncle's. Even our "new stuff", in many cases, was purchased when we moved into our previous house...in 1991.

I'm about to rip a rotisserie chicken apart, and clean and chop celery and carrots, in order to get a head start making a pot of chicken/veggie/noodle soup. Goober is almost done with his cold, so I want to smack it down completely. Meanwhile, most of the soup will be ready for Loverly when she comes home from running boatloads of errands tomorrow, and some for us when we get back from seeing our son. Monday will be cook's day off, since it will be our last day in town. We'll go somewhere - I was lobbying for the Cleveland Museum of Art until I checked their website. It's closed on Mondays. Guess I'll have to come up with another idea while I attack the chicken.

I'm watching "Worst Cooks in America." Totally mindless but freaking hilarious.

I finally finished basting the 10+ pairs of jeans and slacks my friend pinned for me in November. The reason I basted them was to try them on again. I had to make adjustments to make them fit...shrunk a bit more...grr...tomorrow I will fire up the serger and get them done...I didn't want to cut the excess off with the serger until I checked the fit, just incase I had gained weight. Saturday, my favourite skirts are getting pinned. I have learned how to make things that are too big fit. Duh, never thought of that.

I'm settling in to watching the first episode of the last season of Downton Abbey. Thankfully, the SC is a fan too.
