It's Complicated...

Yesterday I met a lovely, very elderly ,couple who reminded me of the plot of the movie "it's Complicated". Have you seen it ? If you haven't I won't spoil it, but it is about a divorced couple, who years after their divorce, reconnect and the complications follow. It stars three of my favourites, Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, and Steve Martin.
It is also a Nancy Meyers movie, so if you love a good Martha Stewarty, Hamptony, high end and totally drool worthy will adore the background of this movie just as much as the story. 
Every time I watch it I say...."That vegetable garden is insane!" because of course I totally want that vegetable garden but know it can only ever exist in this movie or Martha Stewart's back yard. But I digress. The reason the couple made me think of this movie is that after being married in the 1950's, divorcing in the 1970's, they are remarrying, this coming Saturday. They reconnected recently and discovered that all the problems that caused them to divorce were gone, and what remained was the two people who had fallen in love all those years ago. They held hands the whole time I was with them and their was very sweet. But what did I get you ask?? Well, not a great deal but below is some of my favourites. 

Canadian (Yes Deb, Canadian) Ice Skates
Leather suitcase, still with keys and in lovely condition.
Leather hat box. Below is the interior. 

1960's handbag. I love these.

Pair of Bull dogs. 
I love their pudgy bodies and squashy faces.

Pair of lamps in a nice orangey colour.

The shades are still good. 
Apple ice Bucket. These are getting harder to find and this one is in such wonderful condition, still bright and shiny and no dints...yey.

But my favourite, I know some of you will have already spied.....
ATOMIC COFFEE MAKER. I haven't had one of these for ages. I was only thinking about this fact recently when a friend and fellow blogger ( Hi Jo) purchased a similar sort of maker. Funny how that happens, you think about something....and then you find it.

And now because I know you want to see it and I always enjoy it, the movie trailer.


  1. Oh hellooooooo Mr Atomic! They are a seriously sexy design ... and seriously expensive these days. Hate you :)

  2. Noice one! I too have been after an atomic coffee maker for ages. hey I was at the WAC yesterday, are you 'shrinking'?? We finally got our space, Mishas one next to Kimmy, we go in on April 10.

  3. I haven't seen the movie yet but it must have been or is going to be on tv as I did see the ads and thought it looked good. I will have to see it now if only to check out that garden a bit better! xx

  4. You sound like such a hopeless romantic Katherine.

    I must admit I have never seen one of those coffee thingos! xx

  5. I'm a hopeless romantic too. Thanks for sharing this lovely story. It brought tears to my eyes. Of course, all your finds are great too, as usual.

  6. Lovely story Katherine. Roy and I watched 'It's Complicated' on our wedding night, so it is sort of 'our' movie....yes,that is what you do on your wedding night when you get married in your 4o's!!

  7. LOVE that movie!!! The vegie garden is totally drool worthy. All the plants were apparently freshly planted on the day of shooting the scenes... someone told me that when i was pondering if i could somehow grow a garden like it. Lovely story, and so are those lamp shades - lovely that is. Hope you're doing well.xo

  8. Oh I remember some of these items from my parents days - especially the apple ice bucket. this was like a walk down memory lane! most of it went in a garage sale many years ago - funny isn't it how one persons trash is another persons treasure? I've got a half-written song about that and this blog might just inspire me to go and finish it!

  9. I am in love with the pit bull statues. I love the design in them and the face on them. Priceless

  10. Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!

    for a few of my sites but wasn't sure if it would yield any positive results. Appreciate it.
