I have 3 random thoughts for you today: Birthday Boy, Looking for a New Home, and The Weather. When you don’t have anything else to talk about you know it’s always safe to talk about the weather. But seriously folks, you need to help me out on this one. Our weather forecasters drive me crazy with their 7 Day Planners. Check it out below and give me your thoughts.
The cute little guy above turned 12 this weekend! I was thankful for Facebook sharing pictures from five years ago. Where has the time gone? Last night he lit the candles on his own birthday cake, which I suppose, symbolized the passing from childhood into tweenhood or something.
I miss hugging and loving on my boys like I did when they were little, but I find it fun and fascinating, (and sometimes frustrating) to watch them become their own person.
They make me laugh and sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out, but most of all they make me proud.
Happy birthday G-man! Your mom and dad love you!
Looking For A New Home
December and January are slow furniture selling months because of the holidays, followed by the financial recovery from the holidays. So all of us who paint and refinish furniture will continue to paint and stockpile furniture in the meantime. Today I laughingly told a friend that my house currently looks like a furniture store. People, I have furniture lined around the walls and my neat freak, OCD self is starting to lose it! I would like to see my walls again sometime soon. Like really soon. I’m thinking I might just hang an “Open For Business” sign in my front yard so I can get this party started. I’m sure the neighbors won’t mind :-).
Since we rearranged furniture recently, I no longer have a spot for my beautiful secretary. I listed her for sale today. If you’re interested, then let me know. I take PayPal and I’ll be happy to ship her your way!
Or these beautiful night stands which could also be used as end tables. The pictures really don’t do them justice.
I love how rich the wood looks! They would look beautiful next to your bed or in your living room. Promise.
And look at this beauty sitting quietly, waiting on her turn to be made pretty again. She may be a keeper. You see, I have this thing about old china cabinets. I just love them all. Every last one of them. And I want to bring them home to make them mine…
Here’s my current china cabinet. I snapped this picture after removing my Christmas decorations so don’t judge my decor too harshly. This one was made in the late 1800s. I love it, too. For different reasons, but I still love it. It’s going to be a tough choice when the time comes. What do you think? Should I stick with the one I have or move on to the new one?
Our weather man does this frequently. Look at the 7 Day Planner and tell me why Tuesday is NOT considered to be a “Cold” day???
Sunday is “Cold”, so why isn’t Tuesday? Or Thursday for that matter? I suppose 19 degrees is warm? We’re in the South so anything below, say 50 degrees, is cold.
I would love to hear your thoughts so please leave me a message! Enjoy the rest of your weekend ya’ll!
