What I've Been Up To...

Geez everyone I've haven't posted in so long. I've been trying to adjust to my new work schedule over last week. Then in between I've been working on my make do chair and finishing up customer orders. Then yesterday I met some fabulous ladies from A Primitive Journey proboards in Berlin Ohio. I had so much fun talking with and shopping with them. I'll show you my finds this week. Right now I'm at work as I type this on Steve's laptop.

I have been wanting to paint my living room. So this week Steve and I went Lowe's and I broke down and picked my paint. I just kept standing there looking at the historical colors. I just couldn't decide. Well I finally decided on Caramel.

So I went from this... why does it seem like a lot of stuff when you put it in another room? lol









To this....







A blank slate to start over. Yippeee!!!! So stay tuned to see what I decide.

Funny story...

Today I am at work with a girl I've never run with before. She was looking at her phone and said you gotta see what my boyfriend did in my living room. He hung these pictures over the couch. She shows me her phone and lo and behold a Johnston Benchwork couch with a George Washington and Abe Lincoln pictures hung above. I'm like nu uh. LOL I started laughing pulled my Judy Condon books out and said I decorate the same way. So she took my books and is looking through them right now. Then I showed her my premier issue of A Primitive Place. She is in heaven. She said she just started decorating this way. Today is gonna be a great day!!!!!!

Here's the picture... Stacie was kind enough to let me post this...

Love the new color and I can't answer the mystery question as to why things seem to multiply once you take them down and place them in another room!
I'm loving the Benchworks sofa!
