The method to my madness (piano room curtains, part 1)

This week I've randomly decided to start obsessing about my piano room again. There's really no rhyme or reason to what goes on inside my head. I'm having a hard time finishing any one room because I get so bored so quickly. I like to randomly hop from one project to another; most of the time before the first project is even completed. So anyway, this week is Project-Piano-Room. Here's where we last left off... ...carpet lines and all. :) I swear, these carpet vacuum lines have been heard 'round the world. Who woulda thunk a few lines would cause such a commotion?! (Several … [Read more...]

The chair my butt broke

So I plop myself down the other day into my {not} favorite {but it's the only one I own} blogging chair (the chair where I do most of my blogging)... And wouldn't you know it? There's a crrraaaaaack and my arse is on the floor. Awesome. I guess I finally exceeded the weight limit. A summer full of gorging on ice cream and cookies has finally caught up with me. There's no way I'm tossing out my $25 garage sale chair that I bought IN the actual real for real hills of Beverly Hills. Nope. Not gonna happen. So I took the chair apart and fixed it. It really was a … [Read more...]

Ceramic animal heads are better in trios

Hey friends! I hope your week is off to a better start than mine. My blog decided to blow up on me Monday, and I'm stressing big.time. A three month chunk of photos have been deleted from my blog. I'm trying to restore them, but if you see broken images, that's why. Thank goodness for *chicken (see bottom of post). So anyhoo, enough about me and my pitty party. Let's talk ceramic animal heads, shall we? I bought my beloved cow and pig ceramic heads back when I lived in Los Angeles. I drug them back to Texas with me, spray painted them Heirloom White, and hung them in my … [Read more...]
