Hello Kriso: It’s Never Too Early For Halloween

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Well it’s been proven, it’s never too early for Halloween in the Newman household. If you’ve read some of my previous posts you know about my sister Kris who lives Down South. You know, the one that makes those cute, fuzzy baby burp rags and plans amazingly bright and colorful birthday parties? Well I’m about to reveal her dark side.

A Bouquet of Newly Sharpened Pencils

1 Bouquet of pencils

It’s that time of year again, Back-To-School time. All the little kiddos in my neck of the woods filled their backpacks and bags full of fresh school supplies and headed back to school last week. The thought of fresh school supplies made me think of the line in one of my favorite movies, “You’ve Got Mail”.

‘The Sow Is Out!’

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

In my brother-in-law’s oh so eloquent words, “The sow is out!” The sow he is referring to is my former entertainment center, also known as my tornado shelter. I’ve had said shelter since moving into my house around eight years ago and inheriting it from my sister and brother-in-law who decided they were sick and tired of moving it and were not putting it in one more house (they tended to move quite a lot for a little while there.) It was actually one of my brother-in-law Steve’s first furniture building projects. He did a great job on it but built it for the T.V. they one day hoped to have (this was before flatscreens) and made it completely out of two by fours so it is heavy as all get out. We have always joked that since I don’t have a basement under my little house it could be my tornado shelter, if I would just take the T.V. out I could probably fit inside and weather any storm.

Fall Out Shelter

After finally joining the 21st century and buying myself a flatscreen T.V. my next dilemma was, “Where will I house my new T.V.?” (more…)

Smalls

Hit a new antique store in Georgetown, TX. Tons and tons of “smalls” (as the ‘American Pickers’ would say) Too much to even look at.
