TIDNL ~ Day 8

And what, you might ask, did she save for her grand finale of non love??


Not to be confused with SALES.  Now a SALE I love.
But a "Sale" makes me mad.

Check it out.

2 bucks!!!'s, well, dead.

Ooo!  An ugly duck with a massive chip but you could SAVE a whole $1.49!!

Oh here's a steal.  A table with no top.  And not a normal shape either...a nice semi circle which I'm guessing had a mirror in it.  But could SAVE $22.99.  It shouldn't be any trouble to put in a new top for 23 bucks now should it?  Totally worth while!  

Um.  Not.

This is my favourite.  Apparently this poor boy's antler is only worth $3.99.  
Don't tell him.


If you're going to have a sale...please make it worth my while.  
And that brings an end to TIDNL for yet another year.  
Thanks for reading along!!

TIDNL ~ Day 7

Actually, this is more TIDNG.  
Cause I do love numbers on stuff.  I think it's cute and quirky and fun.
Usually they're random numbers with no real meaning...thus the quirk and fun.

But this one I just don't get.

It's a Christmas pot.
So...why 24?  Why not 25?  I don't get it.  
And I don't love things I do not get.

TIDNL ~ Day 6

Is it me or do those pillows remind you of something you 
put in your living room some time around 1994?  

House and Home October 2014
I'm really good with tights and long shirts coming back, but please, please, please save us from those pastelly, shiny, icky styles.

TIDNL ~ Day 5

Apparently they're called Staffordshire dogs.  
See him down there on the hall table?

Style at Home June 2014
Why does nearly every house in a magazine happen to have one of these odd porcelain dogs???

Things I DO Love

In wonderful news my dad is home again.  He is recovering well...still in need of a lot of rest but happy to be out of hospital.  My mom is relieved to have him back.  His prognosis is unsure at this point but we are praying for a full recovery.  We are very thankful!!

I'm super in love with my siblings who have been so fabulous during our family crisis.  And I sure DO love my sweet husband and kiddies who have been such a great support.   Thank-you my lovely and amazing friends who have texted and emailed and brought meals and been so kind and helpful!!

Happy Love Day to you ALL!

TIDNL ~ Day 4

 Please don't read this as criticism of anyone who dresses in all white
and plays cards on their all white linens.
But seriously?

House Beautiful
Don't ch'all have some sweats or jammies or something??

TIDNL ~ Day 3

Here's a little pet peeve of mine.  
Often I see photos of completely unrealistic bar carts.  
See it?  Top left? 
"An inexpensive steel table makes a pretty bar cart".

House and Home May 2014

Ummm, yah...for one bottle.  
Oh, no, sorry...two.

And in case you didn't believe me about the orchids, see the photo on right.

TIDNL ~ Day 2

I feel kinda badly about today's.  
I mean, it's not their fault...I just don't like them.

Style at Home April 2014
I do not like their spindly shape.
What are they doing as props in so many decorating magazines?

Things I Do Not Love 2015

Well Happy Love month everyone! 
I'm so excited to be able to bring you my special February feature...
Things I Do Not Love.

Now don't be thinking it's cause I don't like V Day...I do!  
It's just a little fun.

And now, presenting the first thing I do not love...

this coffee table.  
I see it all over the place.  
On blogs and in magazines and I want it to go away,
and take its dusty little swirly loops with it.
