decorators best

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

In July every year we have an event called “ Secret Gardens ” Last year we visited some of the best decorated backyards in the neighborhood and this guy had turned the complete backyard into a pond and gardens. The backyard was about 150 feet wide by 50 feet deep and a pond covered 85% of his lot. This 3 level pond was just beautiful and equipped with a filter hidden behind some bushes. The deep end about 4 feet was at the base of the falls, so I guess he left the fish there for the winter. At least this guy had no lawn to cut ! 

Greek Gold and Garnet Bracelet, Hellenistic, 2nd Century BC

The most distinctive feature of this bracelet or armlet is the treatment of the outer surfaces of the hoops. Decorative elements are covered with a delicate network of filigree created by placing parallel rows of wire in a zigzag pattern and dotting the points of contact with granules. This unusual decoration is best paralleled in a few exceptional works from Thessaly. It is a rare forerunner of a popular kind of Roman bracelet featuring twisted hoops and hinged box settings decorated with gemstones.

Silence (2016)

Directed by Martin Scorsese

Cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto

headcanon is that after sherlock met john he rushed out (and in fact, did not go to the mortuary) but rather went and grabbed all his stuff and moved in to 221b right that instant and told mrs. hudson “I’ve found him, oh my god, I’ve finally found him” and he tried his very best to decorate the flat all cute and mrs. hudson just watched fondly from the doorway as sherlock tried to decide where to put the drawing he did of his own feet and she helped move the chairs when sherlock was debating on where to put them and then as he left he hugged mrs. hudson and gave her a kiss on her forehead and said in a sort of dreamy way “we must be on our best behaviours tomorrow hudders, we’ve got john watson to impress.”  

I’m Standing Right Here (dad!Tony x reader)

Requests

1. Please can you do a Tony Stark x daughter reader? Like reader is around 18-19 y/o but feels really unwanted (doesn’t have a mum) and that nobody really pays attention but Nat (mum figure), Wanda and Steve (best friends) are always there? Sorry if this was long and specific xxx 

2. Can you do an angsty Tonyxreader where instead of the reader, it’s Tony that’s having problems and his bad habits are getting worse but everyone just thinks it’s stress until he tries to kill himself one day? And everyone, especially the reader feels bad that they didn’t notice and don’t know what to do now to get him help

I couldn’t bring myself to do a suicidal Tony, so I went with it a little differently, hope you don’t mind!

Family Matters (Daughter! Reader x Joker)

“Imagine being the Jokers daughter. Because of him, you have power and money but it all comes with a price. You don’t want to be evil like your father. The only chance you have is to team up with Jokers biggest adversary, the Batman.”

Requested by @jokerhastakenmeover, “YN is Jokers daughter and Joker makes her work with him, she can be more scary or intimidating than him, but her and batman speak whenever they can to try and figure out how she can get Joker in prison and work with Batman because she doesn’t want to be evil, they get a plan”

A/n: I really wanted to explore this further so I decided to make this a series~ I hope you guys like this, I’m really enjoying it so far.

Warnings: Language.


It was an ordinary night for the daughter of the Joker. You were leaning against the counter of bar, drink in hand as your eyes moved over the people grinding against each other on the dance floor. You watched as a woman walked up to a seemingly random, but rich judging by his watch, guy who had been dancing with a different girl. She told him her name and once they were passed introductions, she wasted no time shoving her tongue down the mans throat. You rolled your eyes at the sight, some people just didn’t have any class. You swirled the contents of your glass around as you looked away for the gold digger.

“You got a problem? Huh, little girl.”
