Stuff Portrait Friday Again!


I put my stuff in my trunk -

The back of the dishes -  Posted by Picasa

This week's Stuff Portrait Friday is hosted by Renee. The theme is to show: a favorite alcoholic beverage, the trunk of your car and your dishes.

I decided to put all these items into one picture, but couldn't resist adding another photo showing just where I found my screen name!

Although I own three sets of dishes, I chose this set as it most relates to my theme here.

Oh, and just so you know~ I'm not planning on eating and drinking in the trunk of my car!

Oh come on SierraBella! You could go get a big ole piece of that "goat leg" from the restaurant, slap it on your pretty "SierraBella" plates (very cool by the way!!!) and slug down some Yukon Jack, ALL THE WHILE sitting on your bumper.

Now THAT would make an awesome photo op!

So that's where Sierrabella came from. I like it when people reveal the origins of their screen names.

soozieq-
Ha ha ha!

Mr. SB suggested using paper plates and plastic utensils in the photo. (We have no plastic utensils here BTW.)

He knows how anal I am about paper plates~ for a sandwich maybe, but never for a meal!

Thanks, they were a gift from my eldest daughter.
When we moved here, we began getting gifts of everything in the way of mountain cabin style decor.
If it has pinecones, trees, bears or deer~ I got it!

Oh Man, SierraBella we could have hooked you up BIG TIME with the whole Bear and Moose theme when we sold the cabin.

We sold it "as is" with all the furnishings! So the "lucky" new owners got all the nice (it really was nice, it was all new!) furniture in addition to all "cliche" cabin type decorations.

See when the Hubs was married before, his wife decorated the cabin. As much as I LOVE animals (cats), I would *never* have decorated an entire cabin in cat swag. The bathroom had cats, the hallways were COVERED in cat pitures and posters (WTF? Who hangs posters up anymore these days? Matted and framed, one thing, taped to the wall ~ um no). The Kitchen had more cat knick knacks then I thought possible. It was a tad eerie to say the least.

So as soon as the divorce was final and he got the cabin outright, we went in and it became a more "manly" cabin. Moose (meese? or mooses?) & Bears EVERYWHERE!

There was a store called Home Outfitters that we totally raided. We could have easily have added some more "stuff" to your "pinecones, trees, bears or deer" :-)

Well... we were trying to go for a more The Sopranos Meet Napa Valley look (think Francis Ford Coppolas home) for this house, but everyone figured we live in the woods...
So now we're really eclectic!

I can't imagine cats everywhere! Too much of a good thing?

My favorite color is a particular shade of blue, but I've contained myself to one blue bathroom and some blue accents here and there.

The blue bathroom can be explained! It's mostly tiled in a white with a hint of blue-gray. So it's not over-poweringly blue.

Love your dishes! I'm realizing how boring my dishes are! Where does everybody find all of these fun dishes?

spoiled-grrl-
Welcome!
(I went over to see your blog- are you 'gonna' start one up?)

I was told the dishes were from Mervyn*s! They may have come out at Christmas-time.

My other casual dishes are from Pfaltzgraff, they make some cute patterns!

I dunno...I think the trunk of one's car is the only proper place to swig Yukon Jack.
You're hardcore, baby. And your dishes ain't bad, neither.

Blogging away into the night are you?
I've been having a bad day (although with all that's been going on down South I should just shut up!)
Anyways~ I'm getting ready to get into some of that Yukon Jack just about now. Care to join me?

eclectic-
Y'know, while I was commenting I thought to type the word eclectic in bold letters, but my computer kept logging itself off so I had to hurry!
Of course there's only one eclectic!
Am I forgiven?

jac-
Yes, dish is correct!

And what a delightful dish, if you know what I mean.
