Creeping Crud Friday…

Big sigh. Me thinks that creeping crud that I’ve been fighting off for the last month has finally won. My chest is very tight, sorta hard to breathe, and the cough is worst. Patooey.

Nothing much happening here at the hollow…still have boxes all over the house waiting to be unpacked.

Thought I’d share a few things that has caught my eye online and in catalogs that I’ve found.

In our old house there was a funky storage under the staircase that we stuffed plastic bags from the stores. We used them for cleaning the cat litter, put lunches in, and whatnot. Don’t have that in our new house…may have to make something like these:

BAG LADIES (from Connecting Threads)…very cute indeed!

MOON BEAM CLOCK from l.l.bean found on page 35 of the Spring 2010 catalog. I love it! It comes in five colors, the pale green being my favorite.

Also in the same catalog (but unable to find a picture of the room…and my camera is sitting at home right now) on page 9. I absolutely love the Seedling Polka-Dot Chenille bedspread with the light lemon Sunwashed Cotton blanket and the Seedling Striped sheets with lemon & seedling pillow cases. So CITRUSY! Makes me want to BREATH DEEP (iff’en I could without coughing)! Makes me want to jump on the bed!

I received a catalog called Acres U.S.A. the other day…it’s a 2010 Book Catalog. Says it’s a family-owned business that’s been a leading voice for organic farming and living for almost 40 years.

I really liked the Gardening and the Homesteading sections.

At one of the after Christmas sales I picked up a box of Celestial Herbal Tea for .50 ~ Gingerbread Spice. I’ve been drinking lots of it with some honey lately. Very tasty and makes my chest feel a bit better!

One of the faculty here at work is on the mailing list to Sundance (as in Robert Redford)…I love the catalog and the jewelry in the magazine. Can never afford it, but I like looking none-the-less.



And last but not least…BRING BACK JOHNNY!

    I wish I could find some of that gingerbread tea!!! That sounds soooo good :). I’ve been drinking a lot of the peppermint for my cough and throat. I really am sorry you are sick :(. I’ve had the crud since the week of Christmas. That clock has such a retro look, and I agree, green works the best!

    Take care of you!
