Mod Vintage Stencil Mania
Yesterday I got an email from a Mod Vintage Life reader - Heather.
She wanted to share photos of her stenciled walls.
Aren't they lovely?
I'm usually not a big fan of stenciling but oh...I love what she has done.
Those haphazardly placed blossoms above on a smoky plum wall...love that!
I also love that sleek desk mixed with the ornate lamp and mirror.
Just the right mix of old and new.
This hallway is super pretty too....
Loving every bit of this.
And how about just a few gold birds flying away!
I knew you all would enjoy this.
I love the way she's got all these flowers mounted to the wall too.
Heather doesn't have a blog of her own...but she should, shouldn't she?
She promises to email me more projects as she does them.
The other day I put up a humming bird feeder...yes I know very very late.
But I just hadn't gotten around to it this year.
I put it up and within an hour I had a little one flying around.
Of course as soon as the weenies went out...it disappeared.
Humming birds don't like weenies.
I guess they don't realize how unthreatening they are.
The weenies don't even know the hummers are there!
So the last few days my friends who are all meaning well...
keep calling me to ask me what I'm doing.
I just about can't take it any more.
I'm not doing anything....and I don't want to talk to anyone about the fact that I'm doing nothing.
Tonight my friend Deidra called. I hadn't answered her calls the last couple of days
but tonight I finally did.
As soon as I said hello she asked if I was mad at her.
"No", I said, "I'm never mad. I just couldn't take having everyone calling me asking
what I'm going to do next."
"I just don't want to talk about it".
"I don't know what I'm going to do...if I did...I'd be doing it."
She said she understood how I felt and said that I should do what she does when
people ask her what she is doing.
She says she tells them she is working on her novel.
That usually shuts people up cause everyone knows a novel takes a few years to write
and they are very impressed.
So for awhile anyway....I'm writing a novel.
