Inspiration Pieces

After a really tough week... Tess getting really sick again... knowing it was time to let go... Getting the call from my favorite painter on Thursday morning 15 minutes before I was leaving for a meeting that he could get to my living room and dining room NOW, if I wanted. I wanted. What I didn't want was to have to decide on colors without time to really live with samples on the wall for a day or two. Sleepless nights. Two of 'em.

I thought it was going to be in January before he could get to me... Temperatures of 24 degrees stopped the exterior painting on the job they were doing... leaving me a shot to squeeze in... I took it. After one disastrous choice of Silver Sage, which ended up looking like Frankenstein on my ceiling, it is done. Ultimately I chose a color that flew in the face of every bit of advice I solicited. I like it. BIG change... but, it is time for that in my life... LOTS of work to do on making this new color/look complete... but, I love a good challenge... and, I think I've got one!

Today, I found these two mercury glass urns in a 75% off sale!!! I was sooooooooo excited to find them! They are PERFECT inspiration pieces for my new look... They are perfect inspiration pieces for me... Unexpected... Just Right... Almost a Gift... Love 'em!!

The Bungalow 's a changin'...
It was sure quiet coming home to no little greeter tonight... We miss you, Tess.

It is so wonderful to be greeted by unconditional's gotta be tough! I don't even want to think about not having Trixie! Are you gonna get another pet?

Amanda said...

Love 'em. Can't wait to see it all in person. Sorry it's so lonely. I know it will be sad coming home for Christmas with no Hoppy to greet us either. I don't look forward to that.

Hey Noni! Thanks so much for stopping by! I checked your blog out and it's just lovely! I love the one about your son hunting, I'm a HUGE hunter myself (profile pic is not just theatrics. That's my beloved over-and-under)

Keep stopping by, I'll do my best to entertain ya! (sorry for the cursing, I'm trying to "get better")
