Decorate the House with Orange? Not Me!
So I keep having dreams about babies and not feeding them! strange I know! but seeing as I am going through my Perimenopause I suppose you can at least give me a bit of sympathy! Lol!
So do you suppose that is the reason for me, creating a mess in every room…yes gals…I am still dusting, moving and sorting! and I am nearly at the end of my second week! Yikes!…I am chucking out my chintz…getting rid of everything that just wasn’t really me!
You see, the Happy Shabby look is Quintessentially English with splash of French Shabby Chic…it was never 1970’s Kitsch and it was never 1970’s Retro…I still love those things that I have bought over this last year, but they just do not suit my Karma!…(if you like them…they will be in my store shortly HERE please keep a look out)
And because I am a perfectionist…everything has to be done just right! so I am painting, dusting and moving stuff that has not been dusted, moved and painted for a long time!…is it nesting? Because I am now a middle aged woman and I feel the need to clean! lol!
Oh well whatever the reason….it is all looking good!…I keep telling Freddy, not to worry I will be finished soon…but I have a feeling the total Happy House Make-over won’t be finished for another week! Eek!
Rosie bought some friends home with her earlier this evening…and I found myself apologising for all the mess on the Dining Room table (and all around the house, if I am truthful ;)) I did also suggest that they might like to take something home with them…but they didn’t get my drift! lol!
We have also had a vintage feather quilt DISASTER! Yep I decided to lazily wash a vintage feather filled quilt in the washing machine!!! NEVER AGAIN! for we were scooping feathers out of the machine for about 5 days…and I really did think that we were going to have to call the Doctor in to fix it…but where there is a will…there’s a way! and the fact that we kept on trying to clear the blockage ourselves…we finally succeeded and it is now fully functional again Thank Goodness 🙂 Oh the smell of lovely Daz powder and Yellow Lenor…is irresistible Hmmm!
We also have a dilemma! You see Freddy wants to keep said (above) Ugly McDonalds RETRO Chair which is not ‘Quintessentially English with a splash of French Shabby Chic‘ (remember he did tell me I had free range to do what I wanted in the house!) and Guess What! I don’t!…In fact I want it put into the garage-storage! even Room 101 will do! lol! I want my red and white stripy pug chair back with pretty shabby cushions….So please help my lovelies…what do you think…I’ll keep you updated with progress…should be another couple of days! fingers crossed.
I love you all and remember….if you love me…you will hate THAT Retro chair lol!
