"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

decorating can be fun!

I am all about the fun side of decorating, but it’s not all fun and games.  The heavy renovation work will have to wait for a week or two while some of the more subtle changes take place.  You know the sort…the little paint touch-ups…a little light upholstery work. 

The easy stuff.

I picked up a few great fabrics today.  Some will end up as giant throw pillows.  Others will end up as seat covers for the dining chairs.  I haven’t decided which is which just yet.  But as usual, as soon as I decide, I will get the pictures up for you to see.

I am bound and determined to have this house decorated before spring turns into summer.  I fear it may be a bit on the ambitious side considering we are doing everything ourselves.  Then again, I am pretty stubborn when I set my mind to something.  And the kitchen is almost finished.  It’s all downhill after that!

I think I might spend the whole day tomorrow on pillow making.  Sewing can be quite therapeutic—provided I have all the proper tools when I need them. 

But as for now, it’s after midnight, and the only tools I need are a warm bed and a few sumptuous pillows to crash into.  Sounds pretty good to me!

Until the next time…I’ll be stitching my way through the day!
