Embarassment of Riches, or HoMD #40

How do I love today? Let me count the ways:

  • I had a great phone call with my Godson who lives in KC (he called me!). He was full of his usual energy and happiness.
  • As part of a big outing, The Husband and I went to IKEA and found some fabulous stuff, including a “night tower” (a tall dresser I plan to use as a nightstand), new mixing bowls, and a throw for the sofa.
  • There was socializing with one of our friends. We drove over to his house (after the IKEA excursion), and he kindly treated us to a delicious dinner.  Afterwards we hung out at his house and played Wii sports.
  • I busted through the 100-point score ceiling in bowling. What 100-point ceiling, you ask? That would be my 100-point ceiling. But no longer, because our friend (who took bowling in college) coached me to a personal best of 193!

It was a very, very good day.

Tonight was SnB again. Last week we decided to do a bit of show-and-tell this week, and I am in awe of the creations I saw.

One clever, clever stitcher makes “plushies” (stuffed dolls) that should be on sale across America. She is positively genius. Her work-a-day life in the retail world is nothing less than a travesty to the creative universe.

She brought several plushies, and I can’t choose a favorite, but here are three of the best examples of her work (you can find all her art at her site on

Who doesn’t want their own personal Igor?

I’m a big fan of pirates and Johnny Depp, so I love me some Captain Jack Sparrow. He even has tattoos if you push up his sleeves!

And last but not least, the scariest Dr. Doom plushie in existence. I just want to hug him!
