1. New Blog: The Happy Home Therapist

    image

    Howdy, folks! Just thought I’d share a bit-o-news about a new blog I’ve booted up: The Happy Home Therapist. If you’re into interior design and decorating, or shopping and home decor, definitely check this one out! I’ll be posting reviews on stores I visit, sharing photos and illustrations of personal design projects that I’m working on (like my first home!) as well as providing links to affordable furniture and home decor vendors and stores. Sometimes I even talk about vintage and retro furniture and design—since we all know I love this so much. ;)

    You can also leave comments!

    My aim? Paving the way for happy shoppers, happy wallets, and happy homes. :) Would love it if you could join in on the discussion!

    Definitely dieselpunk. Not to mention sexy as all get-out.

  6. Amazing TV Show Soundtracks!

    YouTube playlist of my favorite TV show tracks. Of course, Battlestar Galactica tracks dominate because it was just THAT awesome. But I got some Legend of Korra on there. Gorgeous work on that show!

  9. If only the chairs had rivets! Still has a very retro “aviation age” look to it. But that bed!

This is like the most exciting discovery I’ve come across for some time now.
Murder, mystery and mayhem with a detective-flapper in my latest TV obsession: Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries!  Kinda like a flapper-era Rizzoli and Isles, really, as Miss Fisher has a best-friend-physician whose professional opinion she seeks out from time to time.
What a riot!
(Season 1 is available on Netflix, Americans!)

Iiiii wouldn’t compare it to Rizzoli and Isles, which my family quit five minutes into the first episode when one of them woodenly deduced that the husband victim had been tied up and forced to watch the wife be raped before they were both murdered.  Maybe it got better after that, I wouldn’t know, but I’m four eps into Miss Fisher and it’s just as concerned with being fun as it is with the social issues it touches upon.

tiyana.marie.speaks: I’ve only seen a handful of episodes of Rizzoli and Isles, but I always thought the two characters had a lot of fun, light-hearted banter going on between them, despite the nature of the cases they worked on. Though honestly, with Miss Fisher I was looking at it more from the “detective-and-medical-professional duo” angle than anything else. Funny thing is once I got past the first episode of Miss Fisher, haha (that came after I wrote this post originally), I realized it wasn’t so much about her working with her physician friend as it was about Phryne going around and doing her own thing.
Because more often than not, Phryne will do her own thing, no matter what anyone else says.
Ah, well. Too bad! It’s still loads of fun to watch.
