hello my dears! I’m back from my phone and internet free weekend. It was a truly fabulous retreat for me. I had lots of time to reflect on my life. I pondered things like, Do I like where I am heading? What am I doing to hold myself back? How can I be a better person? And most importantly (for the blog,) Am I turning into a furniture hoarder?
I checked the math, and recently the rate of my object acquisition has been increasing exponentially compared to my furniture release. Meaning- I’m buying shit, and not getting rid of the old shit. It’s getting to be a bit of a problem.
Exactly two weeks ago today, I proclaimed to the world that my dining table was pretty enough for now. It’s not my “vision” but it’s solid and I have other areas to work on in my home.
Then eight days later I decided that layered table cloths are the best thing since fried macaroni and cheese balls. (If you haven’t had one, you are missing out.) And layered table cloths look best with round tables.
So without a further thought or devotion to my existing table, I went and picked up one of these guys off Craig.
But, Friends, I promise, I’m trying not be a hoarder. I really am.
For instance, last weekend, I passed a chance to scoop up this daybed at an auction.
You see I don’t really “need” a daybed frame. So even though I thought it was the bomb and could surely turn it into something super cute like this…
