Oooooo Sometimes......

I'm listening to Erasure on my iPod and blogging! How great is that? Maybe only if you are an Erasure fan... :)
Anyway, I spent the morning staining cabinets at a house that we are getting ready to rent out....it's the only thing I've done to help my husband get the house ready. I had been dreading having to do it, but once I got started, I actually started to enjoy it. There is something satisfying in taking something and making it both beautiful and functional. I also had a feeling while I was there that I hadn't had since we first moved into the house we live in now....

I felt that wonderful feeling of what it is to make a place your home. There was something about seeing all those empty rooms that made me feel like I had a fresh palette before me. If it were to be my home I could fill it up any way I wanted to, I could make each room into whatever I wanted it to be. Then it struck me that I could do that in my own home. It's strange, but I get so caught up in life that I forget that I can make my own rooms into whatever I wanted them to be. It's just so hard sometimes to find the time to repaint, rearrange, redecorate. Oh well, maybe I'll just have to make some time.

I managed to finish a necklace this week. It will probably be the only new thing I have this week, the rest of my time will be filled with a commission, and more staining.




I'm hoping to have time to list it in the shoptoday. It's name is Cyanburst, and it is imbued with my dreams of sitting on a white sand beach, watching the ocean while the sun beams on my face and a gentle breeze blows my hair....

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week! :)

  1. That necklace is absolutely STUNNING!!!

    I know what you mean about making your own home just like you like it. I am trying to do that now with my bedroom. Only it is going in baby steps. Not the all-out-redecorating-show-makeover-in-a-weekend I'd love to have!
