I’m back, I survived. But here’s how day 1 of TV free week went down. Everytime I walked past the computer I had to pace and downtalk myself from turning it on. Finally realized that the obvious way to cope was to open up the box of Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls and start shoveling them in. It immediately calmed me down. Each day that went by it became a little easier (with the help of a lot of unhealthy snacking). But the bottom line is I’ve missed you all terribly!! I did take some more macro shots. Just when I think I’ve run out of material something like the beautiful luna moth shows up on my porch.
And last night I counted up comments and we have a winner!! Jan from Snippety Gibbet! I know I promised you a package last week, but I’m never on time, and now I can add the framed quilt pieces. (Erin your enthusiasm was priceless – I’ll be contacting you with a consolation prize!)
This was something that Nate and I worked on during TV free week.
Actually the table itself looks great, it’s the rest of my house that doesn’t go with it. So the table draws unnecessary attention to itself like a tourist wearing a loud shirt, bermuda shorts, and sandals with socks! When we finished this and put it into place I was rather depressed. I also had a sudden urge to rip up the carpet, buy new curtains, and all new furniture just so it would look good with the table. And this is the phrase that circled my brain like a gnat – “Repeating the same behavior again and again and expecting different results.” I thank Melinda for that pithy little saying which is sticking to me like a cockle burr. If you want to see gorgeous painted furniture in the right setting check out Knack Studios flickr pics and blog.
Anyway, it’s good to be back – I’m looking forward to catching up with you all. I’ll be sharing some of the other things that we did with all that free time (HA) we had last week.
