Hello my friends, I hope you're enjoying a great weekend. I know I've been a bad blogger the last week or so. It has been crazy crazy around here. I wear a lot of hats through out the year, this time of the year it's one of a tax preparer. The late nights and long hours at the desk leave me too exhausted to even think about taking pictures let alone put a post together. Trying to decompress has been a challenge, you go to bed and you're too exhausted to even sleep. I was bound and determined today to share how I've worked out some of kinks and frustrations.
You might recall a while back I was thinking of painting the kitchen, I had narrowed down the choice of paint colors to two. I remember saying there was no hurry, I think I was trying to convince myself I would put it off, knowing full well once I get something in my head I'm going full steam ahead to complete the project. I'm not sure why I always seem to start a paint project right in the middle of tax season, but I do. I run myself into the ground, again I think it's the only way to decompress and work out the kinks of long hours of sitting at a desk.
It's no secret I have a love for blue and white, I cannot believe I sold so much of it when we had the auction. I told myself I wasn't going to replace any of it, my heart and head didn't get together on that agreement. I've slowly been bringing out pieces I've had put away and purchasing new pieces when I found what tugged at my heart to bring home.
Maidenhair Fern is a soft plant that adds depth as well as beauty to any planter. With the added height of the concrete column I'm slowly working on getting all those nasty cords hidden. You can see HERE how I tried to diffuse their blatant appearance.
After the walls were painted I decided to move things around a bit. The rabbit had hung on the same wall for, well let's put it this way, far too many years.
previous pictures what on earth was I thinking? I certainly didn't need 2 lamps so closely together, it was so redundant. The beautiful platter got lost in the mix, it was too heavy, too crowded, sometimes less is more. Yes, Miss Lynne I like this much better, cleaner more sleek.
I'm sure you've seen the roosters and the birdhouse on top of the cabinets a gazillion times. I just couldn't bare to put their beauty away. The rooster on the left is quite large and weighs a ton, well maybe not a ton, but it sure is heavy. I don't think it looks too crazy to have roosters along with my gorgeous rabbit does it? I could however move them to the sunporch, bring some of the larger rabbits inside..... there I go again tweaking an area that's already done. lol
