Oh, how true! I framed the poster I received from Ruth at The Beautiful Life. The frame is white, although it is a bit hard to see since the wall is off-white – plus, you can see my reflection! My husband wants to hang this on the stair landing in place of the Guardian Angel. So, we’ll give it a try. I think he wants to strike a balance between all the vintage things we have and some more modern graphics. He has good taste, so I will follow his lead.
I did what I call the ‘loop’ yesterday. I drove down to IKEA and then on the way back hit Trader Joe’s. This is a day long endeavor since both stores are south of us in New Jersey. Oh, I love IKEA – I bought a few things we needed but I got out of there much faster than normal. I had places to go. I had to buy both of us new Day Planners, look for replacement ear buds for my iPod, and buy some necessaries at Trader Joe’s. All in all, a good and productive day.
I thought I would give you a ‘shabbifying’ update. The coffee table that Marsha sent me started out like this:
The Easy Cutter is great for cutting wood and mitering corners and a whole lot of other things that I have yet to discover. Linda was very gracious when I asked her what to use in this new hobby of mine and gave me her favorite tool recommendations. If you haven’t been to her blog, Une Petite Folie, you must visit. She built her gorgeous, amazing dollhouse from scratch and her work is simply exquisite.
I’m off to clean the bathrooms – my least favorite job in the world. Actually, I’m only doing a bit of a clean-up, since bathrooms are officially my husband’s job. Oh, Don…where are you?
