Well...we have already pretty much agreed that blogging can be addicting! But being addicted to something doesn't necessarily need to be a bad thing. It can be inspiring, and I find something to inspire me, lift my spirits and and get my day off to an exciting start.
Sometimes the answers to a situation in life can drop into my lap through blogging. It happens a lot. I never fail to be amazed how fond you can become of people you have never met and never will meet.
It's all wonderful but honestly, I turn to blogging for inspiration...for example to paint my lawn swing...and not get rid of it because it is old and the top has rotted through and the seat is ruined and also split. But I will tell you about that later.
Right now...those darned CLOCHES' are still on my mind. Such cute versatile little items to use to decorate...and so easy to just change! I love it and I'm on the prowl for a few. so...below is one I added. INSPIRED? You bet!
Allidink at A Little Shabby Always Chic inspired me to find a little cupcake stand as I just fell in love with hers. And..besides I wanted a few cloches...and a cupcake cloche was a great start. So..I was a copy cat and took a lesson from my young friend. Smart girl, that Allison!
I got lucky and found this one on ebay for 6.00 and won it! Allison's is much like it, maybe exactly but in blue. That girl has an eye for cute things...let me tell you! AND she gave lessons on how to make those little faux cupcakes...not too shabby...heh heh..and certainly chic!!
This I found on ebay..and I love this lady's way of putting together things of Fantasy...see the little grasshopper looking into the looking glass window at the wing repair going on? And the lovely butterfly? Well, I live in this world of fantasy...so..it appealed to me...
I don't remember the artist...at first I thought it was Rebecca but I am just not sure. I don't think so but I will check and get back to you. Hmmm...am I..buying too much when I can't even remember where I got something? I ...wonder... :)
Garage sale goodies tomorrow...or..maybe my lawn swing.
There are other things I want to talk about...it's my blog and although I love sharing things I get for my home...and seeing yours...actually it isn't entirely what I had in mind when I started my blog. Yes...I wanted to do some of that...of course. I love my home...but mostly I wanted to write.
Haven't you heard that people always tell more to strangers than they do people they know? It's true. Sort of the "beauty parlor thing"..
What has happened is that...my blogging took a turn. How does that saying go? Anything you say, can, and will, be used against you? I ...think about that. A lot. So...after a couple of things happening during this past 6 months...I only write about "things"...not life.
As I said..I like that but...I LOVE to write...and I might get back to doing a wee bit more...if I can work up the nerve. It's not possible for me to not care what people think. That just does not work for me. I care. A lot.
I would try to write like no one's reading....but..is that possible? You cannot please all of the people all of the time..I know. What do you think?
Good grief...I need to lighten up...I am headed to bed shortly and unless I stop with the heavy stuff..I won't sleep. Again... :)
Smiles and love...
