I’m having company…..which is like my superbowl…..the world cup….the indy 500. I’m a maniac and as soon as I heard the news, more ideas popped into my head than you could shake a stick at. I become someone my children don’t recognize. I move around the house fast and talk to myself and take lamps off their dressers and bedspreads off their beds and spray paint and hot glue and begin the ‘REDECORRRANGING’. That’s where I ‘shop’ the house and the basement and ‘shake’ the snowglobe, if you will. They start to wonder if they can even sleep in the same room anymore. I’m not finished but I’ll give you a sneak peek. Don’t tell Taylor I took his comforter or Caiti that I took her chair and her candle sticks…..or Emme that I took her lamp. It all washes out in the end. But hold on to your ‘stuff’ if you live in my house…..’cause nothing is sacred. And you stand still too long….your liable to get painted.
most of the items are things hijacked from Taylor’s room….
and I’m taking profile shots too…..to send off for my silhouettes……
and a chair ‘borrowed’ from Caiti’s room…..
and a beautiful damask make-shift ‘tablecloth’……it’s just 5 yards of fabric that I bought from Hobby Lobby for ten dollars!!!
and a fun little table decoration I threw together. I looked like I was doing Kung-Fu when I made this….
and a window ‘mistreatment’ that is pinned mostly…..with the most gorgeous tassel and three trees….to decorate the kitchen window…….
and this pile of stuff……
which I turned into this…..
Are you tired yet? More coffee anyone? Stay tuned ’cause I’m in a frenzy and there’s more to come. Oh, and I forgot to mention all the food I’m making…..pumpkin creme brulee, gingersnaps, homeade bread, and much more. When my in-laws get here I’ll be sittin’ on the sofa knitting…..like nothing ever happened!
