How To Bust Your @$$

Five easy steps:

1. Place towel flat on top of hardwood floor.
2. Run on top of it.
3. Slip.
4. Go flying in the air.
5. Slam down onto the ground with the weight of a ton of bricks thrown from the empire state building.

Thank the Lord that I have all this protective winter flubber surrounding my bones or else I would be in the hospital right now.

Etsy on CBS!

WOW! I just saw THIS! Go Etsy go!

Ok I'm done celebrating, back to work for me.

Monkey (coin purse) looking for a good home!

I just listed this sweetie coin purse on e-bay. This is another case of neglect on my part. I never used this wallet, just looked at its cute face once and a while. Maybe you can give this monkey purse a better life? You can adopt him HERE.

Providence for a Day- the recap

at olga's cup and saucer, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

Thanks to the lovely people who commented on my "What to do in Providence?" post! Here are the results,

We visited:

1. The Bert gallery

2. Wickenden St.

3. Oop shop

4. Farmstead cheese and other gourmet edibles shop- purchased some brie and herbs from Provence. I need to visit Provence, France before I croak, someone remind me.

5.The Runcible Spoon

6. Olga's cup and Saucer for lunch, bought some delicious bread to go with our cheese. I want to go back there already for some more bread!

7. RISD Art Museum. Fibbed that we were still college students. Oh yea, I still got it. I came across an impressive Sargent painting that I have not seen before and a watercolor paintbox from 1070 B.C. , B.C.!! I have a picture of that, I will post it shortly.

8. A sheep in a window.

9. Rocket to Mars, but was closed when we arrived. :(

10. Federal Hill. Purchased a milk bottle/jug made in Italy. Took a picture with some wooden cut-outs that look like my parents. Checked out Pastiche but didn't stay because we were full. I must go back there again, such a cute place!

11. Thayer street to find Shades Plus and Pie in the Sky where I did spy 2 Cram Cream trays!

12. Jerry's Artarama, you can't ever have enough art supplies.

13. Al Forno for dinner. Wow, what a beautiful restaurant! We enjoyed our meal very much. We tasted one of their famous pizzas, had some gnocchi and shared some chocolate crepes for dessert! We left thoroughly satisfied. Highly recommended!

I think that was it :D
