in my room… it’s all in the details.

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.56.11 PMHey look… it’s baby ME!!!

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.44.38 PMSo, my new kitty Sebastian is the sweetest thing ever… and he’s a total monster too! Love him. My recently deceased loves Kiki & Joe never broke things… and I have a lot of breakable things. I broke more than they ever did. Sebastian loves to jump on anything… anytime… all the time. Lamps have fallen (the ones you see here), scarves and curtains ripped, ceramic pig (and other ceramics) broke to bits. So, after a couple of months living together he seems to be calming down slightly. During this time I’ve been moving things around in the bedroom. Changing things up a bit. I got rid of my headboard and foot board that I’ve had for like 20 years. My bed is now on the ground like it was when I was a teen. I’m kind of loving it. I think Sebastian and I have found our groove together. So let me take you on an “intimate” tour of my bedroom (Sebastian’s playroom) …

SISSYDUDE LOVES: The NEW Crows Nest Barber Shop & THAT Vivienne Westwood MAGNOLIA wallpaper on the ceiling.

Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 4.35.33 PM

I’ve been going to The Crows Nest Barbershop for a few years now. LOVE the place. Jimmy cuts my hair. Anyhoo, they just moved into a new space and it looks pretty AMAZING! The old shop had more of a classy frat boy den look… the new space went more old world. They ditched all the skateboard/vintage Playboy magazine/ 90′s cool guy stuff but kept the Jesus paraphernalia (less tacky Jesus… more creepy pretty Jesus).

Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 4.35.01 PM

Sure they went for the classic subway tile, black lacquer trim and light turquoise walls… but they went (((BAM BAM BAM))) on the ceiling with the Westwood Magnolia wallpaper. With the thick ornate bright white crown moldings, boy this really makes a statement. The wallpaper echoes all those beautiful bark cloth curtains from the ’30s, ’40s & ’50s but close up it’s a total digitized “cutout” effect which wouldn’t be as lovely on the walls. But up 12 feet in the air… stunning! Sissydude LOVES… indeed!

if you care… LIKE MAGIC!!! NEW old kitchen table & chairs…

newkitchen2

I’m making a better flow in my place… no Feng shui bullshit… just making more space to easily roam about. I felt like the furniture was taking over a bit. I wanted to see more floor… SERIOUSLY!

I had a fairly large kitchen table that I knew was too big for the space but I’m tall so it worked for me not the space. But last week the largeness of the table and four chairs was driving me nuts. The cuteness of the Tiffany box blue had lost it’s ummmm… cuteness. So, I thought I’d throw the table & chairs on the street for anyone to take and get a much smaller rustic wood table and 2 chairs for the kitchen. I thought it would be a long search (and I don’t really have the cash flow right now) but I found what I wanted at a favorite antique collectable shop (for Toronto locals the store is REC at 1080 Queen St. W).

newkitchen1

The prices were really good. The three chairs were from a dairy farm in Upstate, New York. They must have been painted a good dozen times, tons of paint worn off, wood exposed. Greyish/beige with red accents. One chair looked like it may have been a fave of some farm pooch because it was full of scratch marks and chews. LOVE.

The table was perfect too. Nice and chunky with a slat top. I told the owner Ron about me getting rid of my kitchen table & chairs… and that these would be the perfect replacement. Then the magic started. I never even thought and then said I could take pictures of them and if he was interested he could have them… and maybe he could take a few bucks off for me. Sent him the pics and BAM! “Want to do an trade?”

I was so happy… and so was he! I walked by the store today and there was my old kitchen in the window. I couldn’t go in, but I really wanted to know how much the set was going for. So, if anyone wants Sissydude’s old kitchen… it’s for sale!


for those of you who care… i removed a chair & table from my living room!

anatopm

I know… WHO CARES! I do! I’m very proud of myself for ditching two pieces of furniture to make a “better flow” in my living room space. It really feels better in there. MORE ROOM TO ROAM, people! Here are some images taken today on this lovely bright autumn afternoon…
