For those of you who remember I painted my bedroom walls sometime last year. Well, at the tail end of my vacation I was cleaning my basement again and found my yard sale goods. I then decided it was time to put stuff on the walls in my bedroom. For me, the bedroom is the most difficult to decorate. I can never decide what I want. I just don't get the "vision" like I do in many of my other rooms. I asked Steve to hang a little shelf on the wall and it all unraveled from there. Steve was pulling things out of the basement and hanging them for me because I couldn't decide. I then knew I better get my behind in gear and start decorating. So, this is as far as I've gotten on my bedroom.
The curtains on the corner were Goodwill finds. They are actually tab tops, but for now they tabs are just tucked in.
The curtains on the window were Goodwill finds too. They had the pom pom fringe on them. I also ended up not dying my curtains at all. I had thought I either wanted to coffee stain or RIT dye them. But I think it lightens it up in my room since that is my only window.
I'm thinking of hanging the wood box on the shelf under this stitchery... still not sure yet.
On the wall above this shelf I think I'm going to make a little log cabin quilt to hang in this spot. I also need to look and decide what I want on the shelf. Like I say this is a work in progress. And the candle holder down in the corner will be moved. lol
Other than that I am back at work at getting absolutely nothing done at home. Grrrr... why can't I win the lottery???? lol I have started a new stitchery from someone elses pattern this time. I also got a request from my friend Leslie to design smaller samplers that don't take as long to stitch. Along the lines of my free pattern. So I am going to start working on that. After my last pattern I had already thought of doing it she just said it out loud to get me moving on it. :)
Yesterday my daughter and I went for orientation at the Career Center. I think I am more afraid of her starting than she is. I admit I broke down and cried when we were in the intervention specialists office. I need to let go and let her find her own way, but it is difficult when you've advocated for her for so many years. We have a busing issue we are working on to make her and me feel a little better. We have 3 days and counting until she makes the first step towards a career and her independents from me if it is possible. We have a long road ahead of us, but she is taking life skills Math and English which is more geared to everyday situations instead of geometry and algebra and those types of classes. Come Monday I will be a nervous wreck until she comes home and says she did great.
Well, since this my only day off this week and I have a couple more things on my list do I better get cracking. Thanks for visiting and I'll talk to you soon.
