back into decorating


Its been over two months since my last post. Sad, but true. I am here tonight attempting to rededicate my efforts to my creative endeavors. My excuses for the long sabbatical are as follows: my full-time job wears me out, I don't seem to have as much time for decorating projects, I don't want to get online when I get home, we are budgeting big time, and trying to prioritize our earthly needs over our material wants. Who isn't dealing with these issues?

I'll tell you what though, I have missed blogging so very much. But above all, I have this unbelievable urge to redecorate my entire house. The passion I previously had time to explore and challenge every day when I wasn't working, has grown impatient and it tortures me. Every time I sit down to relax after work, my silly little brain rearranges every piece of furniture in the house to different rooms. While grocery shopping and doing laundry on the weekends, I imagine repainting the walls, and sewing new pillows. In my dreams, I demolish and rebuild my kitchen and bathroom and basement and front porch.


I would like to begin with what will soon be known as the great room swap. Chris and I are inheriting a couple of pieces of furniture, and the addition of these items will cause an upheaval in almost every room. I sort of have a master plan, which I won't bore you with now, as it is not set it stone. You'll just have to log on again to read about how the arrival of one wing chair changes the whole house. It is going to happen soon, I promise. Seriously, if I don't get to move some furniture around next weekend, I might just lose it!

Glad you are back at your blog! I've missed you! Can't wait to see what you do to rearrange your furniture! Hope that Chris is up for some heavy lifting!

Amen, sister! I think it's the cold weather and long months that are creating pent-up decorating energy (and the fact that every day that goes by makes me forget how frustrating putting together that Vietnamese-made desk was!)
Anyway, excited to see what you come up with, and looking forward to the inspiration that will hopefully propel me forward on my dream projects...a master bed/bath remodel.
