Time sure is flying by..."like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives."
I can't help but think of that every time I look at this vignette even though there is not one inkling of an hourglass in sight. Weird!
It's hard to believe I actually made time to blog and was still tablescaping while I worked at Stein Mart. With all the responsibility of that position I am amazed that I even got one post out much less a few years worth. Looking back now, it's easy to see that I did start to pull back though.
What's funny is now that I have more time to blog I seem to be less inclined to do so. It's not that I don't enjoy it, because I do and I do miss the communications with other bloggers. I just seem to be a bit stuck in the same ole same oles. Ever been there? I also really miss one of my most inspirational bloggers ever, Liz at Savvy Seasons. She always had a way of showing her decor that got me in the mood to rearrange and redecorate my own. I hope your doing well my old blog friend! Anyway, that's the long and short of why I haven't posted much at all...I am stuck, just like those hands on the clock above.
I have managed just a few changes around here lately though. I recently purchased two new mercury glass lamps to use in the dining room. I actually found them at Walmart of all places. They didn't come with shades so I used some of my old shades and that's not quite what I want. So, I am keeping my eye open for just the right ones.
And....do you remember when I purchased this (new to me) cabinet several years back? It was bought with the intention of painting it black. Well, of course I waffled on that idea for several years. I even let myself get to the point of starting all over and wanting a new dining table and hutch to match.
But yesterday, as I was feeling restless on a cold Saturday afternoon inside, I decided to start repainting my hutch. Of course I waited until almost 4:30 in the afternoon before I started. Yes, really! I guess you know what I'll be working on today now don't you?
I can't wait to see this finished. I think it will hold me off of any new purchases for a bit. I still really, really, really want a new table and chairs and have several ideas on that.
The fact is, I have been feeling very very restless lately as far as my decor goes. I really want to update the whole house again with a different look. I am kinda getting tired of older furniture and am wanting new, more modern, but frenchy and classic with a twist of modern. Does that make sense to anyone other then me? Unfortunately, the budget doesn't allow for such drastic measures as what are in my head. So, I guess I will just have to continue to chip away at it a little at a time.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have a beautiful and blessed Sunday!
