HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


Boy Decor - 06/04/14

 Who needs an interior designer when you have a little boy?  Mine has an innate knack  when it comes to Feng Shui.  I've attached plenty of pics so you can get a feel for his rather avant-garde style. 

   Take that yellow golf ball in the flower arrangement for example. That incorporates all the principles of good design~ there's texture, form and a big splash of color.

   Then there's the addition of his 'sticky slap lizards & slap hands' stuck on our library ceiling  Hmmm...  You could characterize this as multi-layered.  Yet, another great design component.

   His legos are strewn from one room to the other, providing form and finish on most countertops and couches.  

   Finally, there's my favorite.  The use of fabric, specifically cotton, more specifically dirty socks.  He stuffed them in that bike in the pic to your right when I asked him to put them away.  Alas, a 'green' & sustainable design element.  No washing machine needed.

    I found this quote from some designer, "Designers are meant to be loved, not to be understood."  I love my little designer.

WINTRY WEATHER-SKIING

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The winter storm that hit much of the East made it tough for Thanksgiving travelers. But it's good news to New England ski areas. Dave Meeker of Mount Snow in Vermont says it's a "dream come true." The resort opens for the season today. Noelle Tuttle, spokeswoman for Maine's Sugarloaf, says even the rumor of snow generates a lot of excitement. Area ski resorts say the early storm is getting people to think about skiing for their Christmas vacation.

BREWERS BARE IT

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- These brewers are baring more than their beer. Brawny beer makers are stripping for charity. The 2015 Brew Men Calendar features 11 brewing pros from the Sheboygan, Wisconsin, area. Not too surprisingly, the idea was hatched over some beers. But the brew men don't expose too much. Strategically placed pieces of beer making equipment protect their modesty. Sheboygan Press Media reports the calendars cost 20 bucks each, with the proceeds going to local charities.

SANTA BANK ROBBER

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Say it ain't so Santa! The FBI is looking for Santa Claus in a San Diego County bank robbery. Actually, Ol' Saint Nick isn't the suspect. Authorities are on the hunt for a robber who was wearing sunglasses, a fake beard and a Santa Claus hat. This evil elf was armed with a gun and demanded large bills from a teller at a Chase bank branch. Officials say no one was hurt and the gunman escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

ANIMAL MASSAGE

UNDATED (AP) -- Dog lovers want their best friends rubbed the right way. Shelah Barr is a San Francisco dog massage therapist. She says massage can give the four-legged members of the family "a high quality of life." But don't expect incense burning around the massage table. Barr says she'll often give her patients a bone to chew on. On Barr's Happy Hounds Massage website, an initial house call is listed at $90. Follow-up visits are 75 bucks.
