Random thoughts, too

My kids are really cute and I love them alot. (just looked at a picture)

My eyes are watering so much lately that the skin around them is raw.

Why does my cousin go through cycles of "the silent treatment"?

I wonder when I will be able to afford the new entertainment center I want to (pretty much) complete my living room.

I hear the movie Talladega nights is really good.

My husband and I need a night out to the movies .

I think I will fix enchiladas for supper tonight.

I have my first major wrinkle and it is under my eye. It kinda makes it look puffy but it actually isn't, it is just wrinkled. I tried to blame it on the pink eye I caught a month ago, but I bet that isn't it.

Will I ever get that big wall in Miss L's room decorated? Should I try working with the old window from the auction.......and maybe add in the sign that says "Fairy Tales Really Do Come True" above it....... or just save my money for a mural. I don't know what else would go with antique furniture and a patchwork quilt???

Is is cruel to let your child believe that "fairy tales really do come true" when I haven't really seen any concrete evidence of that yet.

I know this has been asked before, but, WHY is there braille on drive-thru ATM's?

I wish I was closer.....I have wanted a mural in her room since we built our house a little over a year ago!

It is hard finding something for the walls that go with her furniture--(an old bed, desk and dresser) I am not complaining because I love antiques, and my mom refinishes furniture....so it works for us. However, it seems like I not finding pictures...etc anywhere that would compliment her room and furniture.

I have recently purchased at an auction a old three-paned window. I am trying to figure out how I could put it in her room and it look right......

I would say it will remain in the garage for an extended period if I don't hurry up and make up my mind.

Yes, a mural would be much easier...

Take a few pictures and upload them for suggestions. We have a large wall that I've often wanted to fill with an antique window, shutters, door, etc. If went with a window, I would suspend it from chains from the ceiling about 12 inches away from the wall.

What about grouping a variety of barn stars?

ATM's come standard with the braille since not all ATM's are in drive-thru's

I have actually wanted to use barn stars in my living room for a while now. I am not sure what my hold up is.... I found a burgundy/maroon one that would be perfect for that space. I should just go ahead and order it. It seems like decorating is such a work in progress.

I have gotten things like I thought I wanted them....only to move it months later and be finally like...."Yes, this is it"

Knowing me, they will probably get moved again.

Barn stars WOULD be cute in her room if I could find them in a sort of muted pastel color. Her walls are a creamy yellow.

Karen Forest said...

The more I think about it, would stars of that color even look ok? Maybe it they were antiqued or something..... I just don't know.

I am an obsessive-compulsive decorator. I decorate and redecorate all the time. It's a costly hobby that I'm sure my husband wished I'd replace with a less expensive one.

Those stars are becoming popular, I'm sure you won't have a problem finding whatever color you're looking for. If not, there's always tin (silver).
