Quick Bits

Hello my friends. Sometimes I have so many subjects that I want to post about that I can't even choose, so, that's when we have 'little bits' of things. Let's get right to it, shall we?

Yesterday the postman brought me a little package from Studio Waterstone, a new snuggie of sorts for my smart phone....'she' just had to have it to go with her bling cover...for those chilly summer evenings..Ha! 

Lori, the artist that created this, has a brilliant line of handbags and accessories that I have been drooling over for quite some time now.  When I saw this I knew the phone 'needed' to have it.

I encourage you to check out what Lori is up to over at Studio Waterstone here.

For anyone who is fond of Mid Century Modern syle, you will love this magazine.  It is put out quarterly and I look forward to every issue.  It is published in my home town of Portland, Oregon.

I remember visiting friends houses as a little girl and many had kitchens much like this one, we even had coffee pot just like the one in the photo above.

Look at that perfect fridge...how fun!

Look at the way the window opens....not quite sure how a screen would work there.

This has to be my very favorite part of this kitchen...The lady of the house must have been the envy of the entire neighborhood and bridge club of course!

On to  a problem I am having and wonder if any of you have the same.

I follow a lot of people and at times when I go to follow a new one I get a message that I am following my allotted 300 and I need to unfollow someone and to go to 'Manage' to do that. I have done that many times in the past by going to the same place as you see above.  Now, when I click on 'Settings' it takes me to a sign in place and I go sign in with my Google, as it brings me right back to this page and around we go again.

I have gone to Blogger help and gone to Bing.com etc....with no answer.  Does anyone know for sure how to unfollow?

Well, I'm sorry to show, that this is as far as I have gotten with my new project.  I have spent most of my time out of doors while the sun shines.  No fear though, as rain will eventually be coming and that will take care of that.

Tomorrow is a travel day for me and then the Mister will be coming down to the City House on Friday to have a nice weekend with the kids and grands.  I will be checking in with you but will probably not be posting until Monday.

Have a good week and Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there!   xo

Ooh, love the phone snuggie!
I saw that mag recently and was quite tempted to pick it up. And at least you have started on your knitting, I still haven't a clue about what to do with those sticks :)

Have a great time in the city!

fun post, Sherri, especially seeing some of the retro. I still have a (usable) mixer, color yellow, that I've had like forever.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the weekend.

That kitchen is pretty amazing. We saw a kitchen like that in a home Matt and I looked at during our house hunt. The whole place had a retro vibe.

I wish I could help you with the unfollow thing, but I don't really use it. I place all my subscriptions into google reader.

Lynn said...

Cool kitchen! I see the add button but no where to "manage" your list. Sure hope someone has some good advice and if you'd tack it on to a future post I'd appreciate it-thanks:@)

Hi Sherri! What a sweet phone case! That kitchen is amazing. How fun to have all those vintage treasures in a kitchen, oh a dream. Your dishcloth is coming out lovely. Enjoy your week, and the sunshine. xo Heather

First, I love your new banner!
Your phone snuggie is as cute as your I-phone. Very girlie.
And I think that is one cool dishwasher. The kitchen reminds me of those during my childhood too.

Love all the retro...
wish i could help out with the "unfollow" but I've wondered how to do the same...so hopefully someone will help and we'll both know the answer.

Love the banner!!!
Enjoy the weekend and happy father's day to the man of the house.

Vintage Home said...

ted and bunny said...

have a great weekend, thanks for the lovely bits...I adore that (what me here in the UK sees as a) diner look for a kitchen.
You've got further with your knitting than me!

I am using the newest version of blogger. To stop following someone all I need to do is go to the manage blogs I’m following section, obviously you know how to find this, then say I wanted to stop following Little House in Paradise I’d click settings on Little House in Paradise, then it asks me to sign in, I do with Google, after I have signed in it closes the sign in page and sends me back to manage blogs I’m following page. From there I click on Little House in Paradise settings a second time then it displays box with my settings for Little House in Paradise, it also shows my profile with my user image, from the my profile bit it has add links, remove links, I had to click remove links and then after removing links if I look directly across from the blog name Little House in Paradise the stop following this site option, and that is how I can stop following someone’s blog. Maybe if you are using an older version of blogger that is why you can’t un-follow someone.

You might have plenty of time to knit now that the rain is back. We have given you a Sunshine Award hoping that it helps the sun come back. Hop over to The Farm House and see.

Katiebee said...

Love your new banner! ohhhh and that magazine....putting that on my "to find" list~
my phone looks blah next to yours~ i need to do something about that!

have a great week my friend~

We're only allowed to follow 300 blogs? Hmm, I'm up to 307 and that's after unfollowing a bunch! You should be able to click on "settings" to bring up a pop up. You can "stop following this blog" from there.
