The caption says that "People are now more comfortable embracing quirkiness and individuality". Do you think that's true these days?! And do you think this room view fits that description...quirky, I mean?!
I saw this picture in the new March edition of the Country Living magazine that I got day before yesterday.
I didn't think it was quirky at all! I mean, it has beautiful butterfly prints, a beautiful lamp, and a vase full of pretty flowers. Where is the quirky part?! It just looks like a cute and comfortable reading space to me!...Does that make me quirky, that I don't see the quirkiness of it?! LOL
Oh well...I've been called worse than quirky in my life! ^_^ In fact quirky may be a step up!!!....Quirky or not, I love it! And I love some other things in this month's magazine too! I just have to share!!
You probably could guess that one of the first places I would turn in the magazine would be the section where the new recipes are! :-) I do love a new food recipe!!...But, while there were recipes for Macaroni and Gruyere (accent over the first "e") Cheese, Savannah Red Rice with Shrimp and Smoked Sausage, and Grits Fritters with Country Ham and Cheese, they weren't the first thing that caught my eye. It was this!
Arugula and Baby Lettuce Salad with Soft-Boiled Eggs and Roasted Oyster Mushrooms!!!...WOW! My first drool-fest was over salad and eggs!! What does this say about me?! Maybe I really am quirky!! ^_^
Anybody that really knows me...and has cooked for me...will tell you that I have "fowl issues"! I don't mean issues with "foul", as in foul language...although there is that! LOL I mean "fowl", as in chickens, turkey, birds....eating them! (mostly at only a certain time of the month! *wink! wink!*) So, for me to see this plate, with fowl eggs on it, and have a "Yippee!" type reaction is a big deal for me!!
It just looks yummy for some reason! To me?! The girl with 'boiled egg, texture in the mouth, not good' issues?!!...Yes! it does! The reason may be because I love mushrooms, olive oil, vinegar, honey, and mustard. All of which are also in this recipe!! I think I'm going to try this one...I'll let you know if I was able to eat it! LOL If you don't hear anymore about it...don't ask! ^_^
No worries though. Some good will come out of those eggs!! I could use them for this!
For sprouting seeds in the shells!! Is that cool or what?! :-) It seems to make so much sense too! Whoever thought of it is a green thumb genius!!
And being the "word-smith" that I am,...(I never called myself that before JUST NOW! LOL)...I love, love, love this idea!!
Hand-written words in picture frames to hang on the wall!! What a great use of space!...Don't get me wrong, I did think about framing my poetry before, but I was thinking more about the frame than about the words. That's how my Fishing Life Poem in a Frame came about:
I personally designed and crocheted the frame cover!...But I never thought about the words to my poems being in my own hand-writing, framed, and then hung on the wall....maybe in groupings!!...Again, kudos to the creative mind behind that idea!!...I wonder if it's a poet?!
The only other thing that really caught my attention...in the recipe section again of course...was recipes involving beets!!
Beets!!....Maybe I really am quirky! Or about to become a vegetarian...Or it's that time.....! I'm not going to say it out loud!!! Or write it out loud!!! LOL I'll stick with quirky. ^_^
Now, I could end this post right here and not tell you about the other magazine I got,...but then I wouldn't be me!! :-) But don't worry, I'm not gonna go on and on, page after page, about my Roaman's magazine. I'm just gonna show you the two outfits in it that had me thinking that maybe I really am quirky....or a real trend-loving type of girl, (in other words, REALLY quirky! LOL)...or I just love flowers waaaay too much!
I'm not that crazy about the neck-line of this dress, but I just love the hem-line!! So pretty!
And I know you think I'm liking this bathing suit, but no 'Honey'! I LOVE this hat!!! I wish I had that in my repertoire!! I am, after all, "The Hat Lady"!!! ^_^ You can see all of my hats if you click on THIS POST that I did a while back....This is a repeat of the poem from that post too!
And have a good weekend everybody!! :-)
The Hat Lady
I have become 'The Hat Lady',
but that wasn't always the case.
I had tried for many years
to find a hat that fit my face.
But then, while searching for some shoes,
I saw my size hat in the store.
"I'm not a hat girl", I had said,
but I can't deny it anymore.
Now I have hats made of straw,
in colors, with beads and tied string on the trim;
with tassels and felt, like cowboys,
and lace and fur on the brim.
I have become 'The Hat Lady',
a silly description, I know.
Cowboys die with their boots on-
but with a hat, is not a bad way to go!
