And I hear you whispering about the oil painting that’s leaning against the bed. I like it there. Just leanin’……just taking a break from the hard, busy world. My sister will have no patience for such nonsense. She’ll offer to hang it for me. She’s one of those people who’d you’d definitely pick first if you were gonna be stranded on a desert island. She just has good sense and knows how to use all manner of power tools and even hung bead board in mother’s bathroom by herself. I’m sure she could start a fire with a piece of flint and a rock. Yeah, she’ll want to hang that picture and then offer to install an outdoor lighting system before she heads home. But I digress. What do you think? Hang it or lean it?
Want to know what I did this weekend?
I did what I do best. I redecorranged—that’s a technical term for ‘redecorating by rearranging what you already have’.
I gave this room a makeover a few years ago for my daughter Caiti and we have both loved it so! It has such a relaxing, artsy, vintage ambiance.
The burlap bedskirts, silver-patina walls, and mirrors create an atmosphere that begs you to strum the guitar and curl your hair. Caiti recently moved into the guest room (which has less ambiance but a t.v. and a very comfortable bed) so I cleaned and redecorranged this room today in anticipation of the arrival of my sister and her daughter Hope. They will be coming on Friday for Taylor’s graduation and a post graduation pajama party—and to stabilize my ever-deteriorating/emotionally unstable self. I also added the window mistreatments today which are just linen fabric hung with alligator clips.
All I need now are a few small love gifts for our ‘guests’ and 3 more clones of myself—so that I have a chance at finishing the enormous ‘to-do’ list that currently bewilders my sensibilities. For now, I breathe deep and enjoy this lovely little bedroom.
