Looking like a barbarian/warrior slightly disheveled...
Can you tell that I am growing out my hair?
It is a slow process but now that my frozen shoulder is in the thaw stage
I can get back to using the blow dryer.
Casual Beach combing OOTD

Hunting for Beach glass is a favourite pass time of mine.
Speaking of glass...
I emptied out the cupboard in the Humble Bungalow dining room and wiped down all the shelves and packed up many of the pieces of crystal
(which were purchased at $1.49 day at Woodward's back in the early 1970's)
popped them in the dishwasher for a quick clean up
before wrapping them up and whisking them off to the WIN thrift shop.
What possessed me you may wonder?
My husband knew that I wanted to pare down and have a simple set of stylish
classic glassware that will never "date"
Here is the Tapio Wirrkkala Ultima Thule style of glasses I am now collecting.
My sweet husband brought home 4 of these goblets as a surprise which really kick started the whole de-cluttering exercise...
Thank you Honey!
Here's how the shelves are looking so far...
the vintage ones to the right of the new goblets are from thrift shops.
I have kept a few other wine glasses
(on the shelves below, not in the photo)
until we purchase more Ultima Thule.
They are quite pricey...
I hope to find more at consignment or thrift shops
or watch out for sales...
The laundry room got a quick lick and a polish this week too.
The vintage enamel ware seems to go well in the black and white themed area downstairs.
Upstairs beside the farmhouse sink
is my "work area."
I found an Antique transfer ware platter at a local shop to hold all my supplies.
Peach Blow circa 1886
Marseilles Soap Cube
Spring Parrot tulips
almost at the end of their prime
but still beautiful.
I have a bunch of cookbooks by Julia Child
waiting for me at the local library
I am going to try and make her fish buerre blanc.
Until next time...
Enjoy your weekend.
