"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

A Promise Mostly Kept

I wrote this time last year:

This time, though, I actually think that the dream is going to realise itself. I firmly intend at this time in a year to be wending my way through northern British Columbia, testing the weather, and plotting my route across the Yukon border. I am making a promise to myself to celebrate Litha next year right at the arctic circle, pulling off from the Dempster to to celebrate a sunny Esbat.

I celebrated Litha this year 300km shy of the Arctic Circle, at the southern limit of the tundra.

Modern Furniture

The more I settle in Miranda, the more I itch to redecorate her according to my tastes. I won't be using Go Modern for inspiration, that's for sure!

My tastes run to non-cluttered 'cottagey shabby chic French proven├žal' and I have a serious disdain for contemporary furniture. I like wicker and antiques!

If you like black furniture, a site like that might be useful to you. I prefer cream. In fact, I'm actually dabbling with the idea of one day painting Miranda's oak cabinets cream!

They also promote glass tables. I can just imagine the paw prints on one of those (plus the breakage factor in an RV!).

But if your tastes favour sleek lines and stark minimalism, I'm sure you'll find something to fall in love with at Go Modern.

Mailboxes

In the market for a commercial mailbox? Mailboxixchange offers some very nice ones, as well as mailboxes for residential use and other related products.

Since I'm someone who feels that everything she touches should be both useful and beautiful, if I were ever to start a business, such as a rental property, I would probably start with them in my search for a commercial mailbox with an 'antiquey' feel to it.

In addition to commercial mailboxes, they sell house numbers, curbside decor items, and assorted sundries, for a total of about 2,500 different products for both commercial and residential use. They also have an affiliate program.
