Go ahead and get the tune of the Allman Brothers “Lawd, I was born a ramblin’ man….” going in your head.
This post is all over the map rambly.
We’re fixin to talk about sales and renovations and skirts blowin up and Brady bathrooms and Grey Gardens and gold polka dotted burlap and much-ado-about-nothin-pins and deer.
Haven’t been posting much lately…
Not much to share, our house is in complete disarray.
“Out with the old” is my motto of late.
If I’m tired of it, it’s outta here…and straight to Urban Farmgirl!
This whole set-up sold last weekend…
as did this…
It makes me happy to see things that I’m tired of go to new homes!
And on that note…this pretty thing is ready for a new home as well.
If you are local and would like to purchase it ($225) shoot me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
I will mark it sold when it’s claimed.
I’ve decided that rather than having a house/room full of pieces that I feel like this about….
Thank you Riley, for that lovely demonstration...
I’m living with empty spaces until something that blows my skirt up comes along!
Who knows…maybe I’ll even become a minimalist!
bwahahahahahahahahaha…did you like that one?
In other news, we are posssssssssibly going to be renovating the upstairs.
The Brady bathrooms must go.
Walls must come down.
Dressing rooms must be demolished…
You know, to make way for a big ol’ soaking tub.
Along these lines…
Have I ever told you that I’m a hermit/homebody and don’t like strangers in my house?
Picture Grey Gardens without the cobwebs or cats or raccoons…
or weird scarf…
To get that icky mental picture out of your head, I’ll leave you with a little easy project I finished yesterday for my office.
Have you seen the burlap with gold polka dots at JoAnn’s???
I’ve been out of the burlap phase for about 2 years now, but this stuff made me change my tune….
Just enough sparkle to rock my world.
It’s taking the place of the infamous paint chip calendar.
Actually I took that calendar down about 2 weeks after I made it.
I just wasn’t feelin it.
Let me switch into Joan Rivers mode for five seconds… (I’m pinching my face real tight as I say, CAN WE TAWK???)
This stupid paint chip calendar has been pinned thousands of times and has been viewed on this blog…
wait for it….
227, 195 times.
And before I sign off…
I think it’s about time for the latest deer photos…
my daughter does not understand my fascination with them…
“Mom…we have deer in our yard every day. What’s the big deal?”
I took this one the other morning out my office window…
we have a huckleberry tree out front and this same deer comes here for breakfast and dinner every day. You can set your watch to her.
It’s Egypt hot outside and Arctic cold inside…hence the condensation on the window.
And I snapped this one today…
this mama deer has two of the teeniest little babies I’ve ever seen. Like smaller than Riley wobbly legged Bambi tiny.
They are a little camera shy.
What can I say?
Here at Grey Gardens this is entertainment at its finest.
Hopefully with a more interesting and cohesive post…
but probably not.
