Poetry table and sneak peek of kitchen revamp.
I have discovered paint pens. We went to work on making those herb marking stones that are the rave on Pinterest right now.
Once the rocks were complete I decided to pretty up my sad, abused, outdoor patio table. I quickly spray painted it purple, got out my poetry books and went to work.
I hope every time a friend comes to visit they add their own bit of poetry or wisdom to it.
I have a list of fave poets, but I always seem to turn to Emily Dickinson and Keats, and Whitman...and Tennyson....and and and......... How about you? Have you given it a try? What floats your boat? I recently had my mind blown when I took out my old Shakespeare ten-pound-book and re-read some of the sonnets. Oh my gawwwwd. Mind. Blown.
The caterpillar was taking a quick read as well, I think he preferred Maya Angelou.
I'm in the middle of a kitchen re-vamp right now. Here's a peek at my new "extra girly" curtains.
(I always wanted to live in this little pink house in my hometown. I loved it, seriously. It was actually white with pink shutters and pink adornments all over, including lawn jewelry. I might paint my house pink one day, just because I can. heeehee)
Curtain bows inspired by these lovelies:
And this curtain on the opposite wall is from fabric in the 1970's- for real vintage fabric, upholstery weight, from my fab friend Melissa. Thanks girl--I know it may be ugly to everyone else, but I love it. The pink ruffle makes me smile.
I've been painting some old furniture for a quick pick-me-up----so the chalk paint on this roller cabinet is perfect for practicing My girls thought it would be hilar if they moved the bananas after I wrote it on there...see? Sigh. The other writing is a selfie affirmation "You are fabulous darling"--because we all could use reminding (of the fact that you are fabulous, not just me).....
Am I making sense?
Sometimes I wonder.
If I make sense.
I'm suddenly realizing I need another coat of pink on these drawers. Yikes. This is why I usually leave the painting to Melissa. LOL
Do you ever feel like redecorating your entire house, even though you just decorated it less than a year ago? I do. Maybe it's a sign of multiple personalities. Or maybe a need for renewal. Or...maybe nothing but bored eyes. I need inspiration surrounding me, so if it's not doing the job, I change it.
there it is.
