Fancy & Fresh

Today needed some color and life.
So I bought Teddy some tulips and brought Fancy Desk back.

Leader of the Pack

My grandmother is so amazing to me.  
Some of you have had the privilege of meeting her and there is not a 
doubt in my mind that she sure as hell left an impression on you. 
She is hilarious to most, sharp tongued to some, but to my family she is our 
matriarch and our rock.  This woman is quite possibly the strongest and smartest
woman I have come in contact with and she has truly shaped the women
in my family to be the same.  Today I was lucky enough to be able
to knowingly say my good byes and mentally photograph her smiling face
as she yelled "avash!" from her hospital bed. 

Avash, avash! are her famous last words.. and for me that is quite literal.
Avash in Albanian means "take it easy" "go slow" which is what she 
would always yell when we would leave her house.. making sure we would
back out of the driveway slowly and get home safe.  
Today I got butterflies when she said it.

She is in high spirits and extremely content with the decision she made.
She is a lucky woman to have been able to make such a decision for herself..
but I am in no way surprised.  Always the strong decision maker.

There is no denying that Agnes Kosta loves the limelight.
Like.. she would totally be Regina George.. leader of the pack.
Gia would be Karen Smith... and Flo.. would be Gretchen Wieners.
 So with all of her visitors.. friends, family, techs, dialysis-mates..
that continue to grace her with their presence now and in the coming days.. 
{she is looooving all of the well deserved attention}
this is truly her standing ovation. 

Love you Aggie!

Bejeweled Bottle Opener


In my quest for home accessories I stumbled 
upon this on Kelly Wearstler's site.
For the fashionable beer drinker.

Mother's Day gift?  I think Lynda would approve.

If I could poop glitter.....

Ohhhhh but I can!


.... and it's only $425.

I can't even....... I love it and I hate it all at the same time!
Oh I forgot.... girls don't poop.

Apartment Envy

Feeling inspired after taking a tour of 
my friends Jamie and Steve's new place!

I hang with good people.. that's all I can say.
All of them are creative and super talented.

Most of the furniture in the couple's Jersey City
 apartment was restored by Jamie and her man.
I can only assume that all of the amazing artwork 
sprinkled all over the two floor apartment 
was produced by the lovely hostess!

Each piece of wall art (that wasn't Jamie's work)
 was part of a sentimental collection of old articles 
and family photos.  I was just really impressed.

Thank you Steve and Jamie for a fantastic new years!
Happy 2013 everyone!
