What I liked this week …
I've decided to not let my perfectionism to keep me from blogging this year. So here's a peek at what I liked this week.
While some may say this was just an average chair from World Market, I must stress this chair brought new life to my Mom's living room, brightening up the space and detracting at least 20 years from the decor. My mother is certainly not one to embrace old age willingly and this chair is just as sassy as she is. Way to go, Mom!
I don't especially love my dining room table ... in this setting, as our only eating spot. Under other circumstances, I think it's lovely. It's a family heirloom but in this house, we have just one dining area. So yes, it's a little formal for daily use, but hey, it's what we have. The fake Suzani ups the fun factor.
All this happiness of the week is sure to be surpassed by the luxury of being able to do nothing on Saturday, at least for a couple of hours while I drink coffee and snuggle with my girls. After that, my perfectionism will kick in and I'll be forced to go transform or improve something, like the laundry situation or a table I need to finish. I'll probably start by making a list. But then I'll take a nap. It's going to be a glorious weekend with few plans.
