Recycled Christmas

Now here's a tree I could be happy with on the Green front. Just save all those beer bottles and stack 'em high to make a festive account of the past year. I bet this would be gorgeous at night with lights coming from inside the bottles. And when the holiday season is over just pull 'em all down and throw them in the recycle bin. How great is that?

Wishing all my blog family the best of the holiday season. May you be happy, healthy, and know that you are loved.

Advent - the Punk Rock way.

(click on image for redirect to site)
Now this is my kind of advent calendar. Too bad I only discovered it now and not Dec 1st. There's always next year for the first 17 days.

Today's song.
Merry Christmas to all those that long for the good 'ol days of our wasted youth. Oi!

Yes, it is that one day a year that I will participate in shameless self promotion. It is ALL ABOUT ME today.

Too Excited To Be A Perfectionist !!!

Sorry for the sloppiness of this post - all photos are from Home Companion. I could not figure out how to get them singled out.
The Dec/Jan issue of Home Companion has an article about the interior of Amy Butlers home in Grainville, Ohio. And guess who did the styling on it - MONIQUE KEEGAN !!! When I saw the shot of the bike with the industrial table against the wall I knew it had to be her. Silly me didn't read the header on the magazine article that stated that Monique was the stylist. The only reason I knew it was her was because I went back and reread the comments on the post that I previously did on her own home. Whoa was I shocked - Monique commented on my little blog about the upcoming article.
You can tell that this is a fabulous collaboration between Monique and Amy Butler - good friends are they. Sorry the photos are so small, you will need to go to the Home Companion site to see them in their full glory.
But better than the Home Companion article is the fact that Monique has her website for Enjoy Co. up and it is CHOCKED FULL OF PHOTOS !!! Go now - quickly!!!! You will be amazed.

I'm tellin' ya' - this girls got it going on. I wonder if she would take me on as a virtual intern. Hey - I'm a hard worker and a fast learner.

Must See!

You absolutely must go see Australia - in a large screen theater.

I am by no means a sappy, love story kinda gal and this flick has only 3 scenes that had gratuitous Harlequin novel yuck in it. The aerial shots will take your breath away and it's got plenty of shoot 'em up scenes in it for the boys. So it's not a chick flick in my opinion. It is the cinematography and set design that is so incredibly fabulous.
