As we have been finishing up the last few details of the master suite renovation
I have noticed a "thing"
an eye rolling thing
as I play around with all my goodies
I change them around and around and around I guess for no other reason except
that I want to feel like after all this dastardly demo
I have landed myself in a spa
once I get it like I want it~
with all the stuff I won't use that I have been saving all this time
(not knowing for sure if I want it or don't want it)
I have been buried and working around and painting around and caulking around
that has memories and means something to me
I am so hesitant to let it go
but as I "arrange"
sometimes in my periphery
I see Mr. P.V.
roll his eyes
he really could care less that I brought this
thing a ma bopper home from a wonderful trip
I have no idea what it is...it came from a spa, it smells good
and when you move it around some kind of fine powder falls from it
who doesn't like that?
and look at that sweet little blue dish that I bought at a garage sale?
and look at this cute little perfume bottle that I found in a box of
I bet hubs would like to bury his head in this jar of sand
don't you know he gets so annoyed at all the useless
that I create?
and he can scarcely hold his eyeballs still
when I move this rug from in front of the bath to the shower to the vanity
oooo...can you imagine burying your wet toes into this?
So...where WILL it go???
This precious thing has been waiting to sit on the edge of the shower niche for a very long time
with a the rosary of a Methodist
I so wanted Larimar counter tops
but I had to go without supper one night to afford these
I have only arranged this window sill 6 times
can you see that bubble in this glass jar?
and that coral? Oh man..that coral!!!
and I bought this perfect chair off the floor
from Pier 1 in Lubbock during a winter snow storm!
I would have bought it for twice the price
but I only had to pay a portion of my chair budget to own it
as it was a close-out and the only one left
and yes...I have moved it several places as well..
but hubs is so glad to have a place to rest as he takes it all in
and what about all those soaps he's had to make room for by leaving his clothes behind at the hotels?
at least they smell good...seashells don't always
gosh I love that bamboo tray that I bought at an antique store for 1/2 off of $35~
when I moved this little number in was the time I realized it was not my imagination
that there was some eye rolling going on!
but if you want to talk
do you remember our tub sitting on the drive on baby bo peep's wedding day?
all I can say is this
thank the LORD
that I had some pretty stuff stashed away
to dream about
to keep my heart strong!
