Too Much!!! or Not!!!
Here is a room I'd never put together and yet I really like it.
Yes, I'd pick that sofa....no...I wouldn't pick that coffee table.
Yes, to the lamps....no to the rough wood frames.
Did you notice the detailing on the lampshades?....they are all tied up.
Yes, to the turquoise tray...no to the typewriter.
And those pillows in sharp contrast to all the bits of turquoise in the room?
I would not have done either.
Just shows...sometimes you need to add in things that you don't necessarily like all that much
to make it interesting.
I really love this room.
I know I have a tendency to go too feminine...I'm working on that.
Here is something I really wanted to show you today....
Forgive the bad photo taken with my iphone.
I took my Mom home yesterday or rather I followed her home.
She drove her own car...but I followed to help her carry things and settle in and
I had Marcus in the car with me.
I've fallen in love with that big old Moose of a dog....
Here is his photo in case you've forgotten what he looks like...
Anyway...back to my tale...
I took Mom home and this is what sits across the street from her house
in the across the street neighbor's yard.
A goal post sitting facing the street!
Mom had mentioned the neighbor boys were playing basketball to the south of her.
She said her dogs go nuts barking at them as they play ball in the street.
In the street!
Well, I think this is ridiculous! It made me laugh and laugh.
How many times did my Dad say to us kids.
"Now, why don't you kids run outside and play in the street?"
Of course he was joking.
But in this case...this family is literally encouraging their children to
PLAY IN THE STREET!
Granted, it's not a very busy street but still...I think these parents should be reported
for endangering their minors.
I have to say this street is a very quiet one...there were times when I was growing up
that our dog would take a nap in the middle of it.
Cars would drive around her.
Well, one car drove around her once.
we didn't let that happen again
we didn't let that happen again
Ah....small town life....
I was glad to be back in the city by nightfall.
Without further ado....here are my favorites from
Mod Mix Monday last week.
Cottage and Broome's sweet little garden cottage under a blanket of snow.
Miss Kopy Katt made lots of little sweaters for her flower vases.
So cozy. I really love these.
Town and Country Living's pretty foyer.
Her house shows up here time and time again.
twelveOeight diy painted this cool chevron rug
An Extraordinary Day decorated a window for Valentine's.
Simple and Sweet
And finally....who could resist this face....I mean table runner.
Debra at Common Ground fluffed her home and added some
accessories that may or may not have included that cat.
So my Mom went home.
We both shed tears.
I told her it was nice having her all to myself...something I had not had
since I was two years old and my sister was born.
Anyway...she's doing great.
I told her she can runaway up to my house any time she wants to.
The house is quiet without her and that loud mouthed Marcus aka Moose.
