I have a vague memory from childhood of my mom having in her possession a kitsch chicken that laid eggs. I wonder if this is real or something my mind is making up. I’m going to google it…I’ll be right back…Sorry got distracted by Pinterest. I saw a picture I loved! But, I couldn’t find what I was looking for…I did see stuff that sparked other memories! I always wanted an egg chair!! I had a bean bag chair, a pink one and my sister had one too in yellow. Never did own an egg chair….yet. I always wanted a round phone too! One of these days I’m gonna find that chicken at a flea market and buy it and a round phone too! I love love love vintage phones, you know, the rotary dial ones. I have several and keep them out. I have a red phone that we call the Bat Man phone, it hangs on the wall. Recently the phone repair man had to come out because of crappy internet and staticky phone lines…he sat down at my computer table to check the internet and picked up my vintage pink phone
and I had to tell him it wasn’t hooked up. So, he got up and went to the one hanging on the wall, the Bat Man phone, which also isn’t hooked up lol. He was so funny, he looked so confused! And I had to tell him the clock wasn’t set right either since we refused for a while there to comply with the time change lol. I guess out here in bohemian country we make our own rules for living lol. I told Wayne as we’re developing our brand this year…it’s easy because we’re not just products…this or that or the other…we’re a lifestyle, it’s our lifestyle and it’s all about comfort…in pillows, linens, food, art, life, living…simple…living comfy cozy…living free. Not worrying about the Joneses or keeping up appearances or anything just living, loving, cooking, making art, enjoying life and each other and animals. Acknowledging the sunrise and sunset
and all the little moments in between. The taste of cold butter on crunchy vanilla wafers and the scent of hot coffee brewing and bacon sizzling in the iron skillet. The feel of fleece pjs and wooly socks and Molly’s soft soft soft coat. It’s pound cake and homemade cookies for afternoon tea and bean sauces and cooked cabbage and ice cream at midnight. It’s love notes written in on the grocery list and holding hands while driving down the road running errands. It’s playing and making music on acoustic guitars and tambourines and xylophones and drums and hopefully…soon…keyboards…I really want to tackle keyboards again. It’s stacks of books and learning Italian for someday…just in case and anyway it’s fun. It’s clean towels and hot from the dryer clothes piled high waiting to be folded as Zoey sits on top like she’s just climbed Mount Everest. It’s life…simple, easy, bohemian, country with a laid back tie dyed appeal all our own and we like it and want to share it with the world…cause what the world needs now is Love and Healing and to get Priorities in order. Ok, friends, I hope y’all have a great day! And I hope hope hope you’ll stop by again tomorrow…Peace Love Art
