Aren’t these gorgeous? My dear friend gave these to me as part of my winter gift. She sells her beautiful creations on Etsy.
This is a sneak peak of the living room update. That’s the new couch in gray and I’m using punches of pink and swaths of purple. Poor Ryan, but it’s not as girly as it sounds. It’s mostly gray and wood with a few hints of color. I’m nearly done. I just need to update the art on the walls and get around to making throw pillows and a blanket. Have you ever tried shopping for purple fabric? There isn’t much to be found and most of it is lilac. I wound up ordering some yardage on reprodepot.com, but it was difficult there too. Who knows whether the fabric I ordered is actually purple (it could be blue or pink or gray–have you seen the color variance on different monitors?). I really wish that they took the time to write out what color it should be. We all had crayolas; there is a standard out there. We’ll see how it shapes up–probably just perfect.
Work has calmed down again, thank goodness. I’m trying to be more positive and let things slide easier. I have a tendency to meditate on problems like it’s going to help. Just so you know, it doesn’t; it just makes you crazy. Life lesson for the day! I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
