Now I know this is not a BIG deal..and I know some want to not read about decor etc..and that's fine.
When you've waited years and years to do this sort of thing, to me, it IS a big deal.
Not whining..well, perhaps just a bit..but for so many years, school clothes, keeping food on the table etc. came first, and things like wallpaper and decor was just not in the cards. Basic's..that's what we kept up with. How I LONGED to do things like this, and now I can.
:) Oh wow! Just had a flash of remembering scrambling to keep the electric, and gas on.
Or to pay the phone bill.. Laying awake nights, unable to sleep, trying to figure out what could wait and what could not..and (embarrasses me to say this ) but figuring out if the check would get to the bank before I did. Anyway, you get the idea.
Oh lordy, am I trying to excuse myself? Of course!!
I don't need to do that, do I! :)
So..here's my wallpaper. Just had the hall wallpaper done a couple of months ago and now I'm going to do my little bathroom.
This is delicate wallpaper and I don't think it will cause a problem with the other paper. Besides, the paper's are not right next to one another and who would give a darn anyway.
NO ONE! :)
Monday at 8:00 is when the paper hanger is coming. NO..not the sweet man who stepped into a five gallon can of paste and tipped in over onto my newish carpet. (I hate even remembering it!)
He retired and
fled, I mean moved to Palm Springs.
The picture doesn't show it but the texture of this paper is just beautiful..and the little feathery leaves in the background are like raised satin. It's just lovely. The walls are pink now..and I do like them..but it needs something. I found some lace curtains on etsy SO inexpensive that I could not believe it!
They just arrived and they are so delicate too. "Girly girl" or not...it's my little powder room off the bedroom. Gonna be sweet, sweet, sweet.
Should I wallpaper the ceiling too?
Almost makes your teeth ache, doesn't it? :)
I painted the little shelf and coat hanger in the hall a pale butter yellow yesterday and hung it this morning.
Am I going overboard with wallpaper. ..yeah..probably!
Someone asked to see a picture of the little doll I bought, after I dressed her in different clothing.
She fits right in with the rest of the toys now.
I don't really remember if I have shown you this nice little sewing box that I found on ..I think ebay a few weeks ago. I needed one to carry to my chair when I'm sewing..and the one I have is BIG and heavy. This one I thought was cute..so I snagged it. The description said the lid was cross stitch, but it looks and feels like needlepoint to me. Doesn't look like it's ever been used. The inside is pristine.
A deal? I think so.
That's it...I'm outta here. I've even bored myself. Going to bed.
Silly to get so caught up in a TV Drama. series..but..I know I'm not the only one.
I ordered Lumpia, a dish I was introduced to by the college students at their tag sale and benefit.
They even deliver right to the door. I ordered two different kinds, beef and pork and the shrimp. Also got the sweet chili sauce and sweet vinegar sauce. Both were delicious and since I couldn't make up my mind, I bought both.
We are going to treat ourselves..and daughter in law is bringing home made ice cream.
We're making a night of it!
So, who's going to join us? :)
