Spring is here and my mind keeps going to ‘eggs’ – especially the blue of a bird egg. I found this image courtesy of The Graphics Fairy. She has a wonderful site filled with clip art. I made a copy of it on heavier weight paper and put it in a frame from Ikea. I just love it and it was very inexpensive, too! The tiny eggs came from Vignettes.
I’ve been wrestling with lower back pain lately. The furniture in this apartment is all donated to the theater. As I’ve posted before, none of it is great for my back. Lately, even my best efforts (boards, lumbar pillows) haven’t been helping. In desperation, I went to Ikea yesterday to contemplate buying a proper chair. I have about 3 more months here and don’t see how I can function with chronic pain. I wandered around contemplating my choices. Do I just buy a chair, put it together, knowing that I can’t transport it home? The one I had my eye on came in a more bulky package than I had hoped; not easily repacked and sent home. (The idea of renting a van seems better and better.) In the end, I went with this $39.00 wicker chair, thinking at least it has back support. We’ll give it a try ~ hopefully it will do the trick and I won’t have to spend more money on another chair. I hadn’t been in Ikea for a long while, though why I picked a Sunday I don’t know. It was absolutely jammed with people.
More eggs – I love the pastel of these eggs from Michael’s nestled among my fabric eggs and the new Somerset Life. It is absolutely beautiful! Check out the story inside on La Maison Rustique. By the way, I had a comment from Mary asking more about the sale. Mary, just click the link and all your questions should be answered.
I’m going home for a visit on Saturday! I can’t wait to see my husband, my dogs, my sweet little cottage and work in the garden. (Another reason why I have to get my back in order.) I have Don checking out the yard for signs of life. He assures me that my lilac bush planted last summer has made it through the winter and has little buds on it. Wonderful!
Have a great day.
