As I was going through my "after" photos, I realized that there were some fun details that I had left out. Some are decorative...others just a behind the scenes look. I thought I'd entertain you today with some of these photos of my decorating endeavors. Be aware that I am slowly trying to finish some things up around here....and already have my eyes set on new challenges...so of course...this is NOT the end!
I would be a liar if I told you my house was always clean....however I do try to stay in a "somewhat" organized state of chaos "most" of the time. :)
I've come to grips with the fact that I'm one of those "creative types" who needs to be surrounded by piles of inspiration. I TRY to keep it clean...sometimes the house looks like a whirlwind has hit it...but then I'll do a bit of cleaning up....and that's when IT happens....
Something will just strike me funny...and I'll be inspired to throw something together...and voila...something worth sharing with the world. It is such a feeling of satisfaction!
It is a very happy day for me when I can have a clean home and a creative one!!!
I feel all illuminated inside and out...refreshed if you will.
I just want to sit down and stare at the surroundings I'm in and be lost in thought of my next endeavor....
Speaking of my next endeavor...I'm wondering what you think of this piece. I have a pair of these antique glass paintings...the other one is a white crane. I love the pictures themselves...and the look of the frame...but I'm ready to paint the frames a lighter color...some would say this is a terrible thing to do...but I believe in doing things that make me happy....and I'd be happier if they were lighter. These are after all only "things".... So what color do YOU think they should be? I'd love to hear what you think. Be aware that the inner trim is a soft gold, and there is a light brown velvet trim...I can't change that....so whatever we pick needs to look great with that. I'll be looking forward to your advice! :)
I hope you are all well....and I'm always so happy to have you here.
Enjoy your day!
