~SOME BLUE FOR ME IS GOOD~
I am trying to stay up more and more. My body is reacting adversely to one of the antibiotics and I am finding it difficult to walk...so that med. had to be stopped. At least for now. Getting my strength back seems to be a challenge and that has never happened to me before. Ever. Age? Of course not! Perish the thought! :)
Anyway...last month..I think..(I have lost track of time) I was in need of a new lamp shade for my bedroom lamp and of course I looked to my talented fellow bloggers first. I love the shades Marilyn makes on THE CUTEST COTTAGE LAMPS and have bought from her before...so I looked to her first. I found this one and though it didn't work for the bedroom lamp (too big and blue), I switched it with the living room floor lamp and I loved it. Perfect. I usually am not much into crystals but this was a wonderful change. And...it matched the little blue rocker which was here when I came.
I loved the fabric Marilyn used on this shade. Even though I am not into crystals ..I liked them on this shade.
Look how pretty and sort of Victorian they are. Nice.
The colors do NOT go with my picture frames..but..hey..this is home. Some picture switching is coming. I can feel it. Seems you change one thing and that leads to...well..you know the story! New carpets and paint by next year!! Right? :)
Also, as I mentioned, the shade matched the chair which I inherited when I moved here. It wasn't really my colors..but it is such a comfortable little chair and I wanted to keep something of the colors that Howards late wife loved. In some ways I feel I am just caring lovingly for this little home and making it comfortable. So the chair stays. She lived here for over 40 years...and please don't say you could NEVER live in another woman's home. One never knows what one will do when the chips are down. It just was not practical at our age to move to another home. I have grown to love this little home very much!
I must be better or I wouldn't be up once again at this late hour expounding away..and trying to get something posted. Back to bed. Tomorrow will be a better day! :) I MUST get well. There is so much to do and as Balisha says..never enough time!
