I had such a fun time rearranging my furniture yesterday that I worked on it a little bit more today when I could manage between playing Lego Batman with the boys, laundry, trying to get my e-mail under control and acting as a wrestling referee (again with the boys.) I was shopping my house for the perfect thing for the top of the Empire dresser and I remembered an antique child’s wheelbarrow I bought and fell in love with a few weeks ago. It’s one of those nutty ideas that I was sure would look good in someone else’s house, but not mine. Well, if it didn’t work, I could always change it.
I like it there. Something about it works. It almost looks sculptural.
At this point I’m planning to make a hand painted antique-looking sign to hang over it. I’m sort of excited about it. I love it when I feel inspired to work on my own house. I also decided to move the French cane chair from my office to round out the seating arrangement.
I even started to tackle cleaning up the dining room, but I didn’t get very far with it. Oh well, I’ll take what I can get! Tomorrow is my “long work day”, so I hope to get a lot of painting done.
Before I sign off, I want to apologize if you’ve received a popup or warning of a virus on my blog recently. It seems like it was coming in through one of my ads and that code has been removed. If you do receive a warning message, please don’t click on it, just close the windows and let me know you’re still seeing it. Obviously, I don’t want to give my readers viruses! Good grief. I can’t believe this kind of thing is even an issue! Grrr.
My computer issues are getting sorted out as well, thankfully. Me and technology have been like oil and vinegar the past couple of days. My husband decided it was time to buy me a new laptop, so he picked out all of the features I *need* and is having one built for me. I bought my current laptop almost two years ago and it’s a good time for an upgrade. Hopefully my compatibility with electronics will have improved by that point!
