I realize that this is an extremely lame blog post. But it is meant to demonstrate that I am extremely lame about finishing what I started. Perhaps you share the same m.o.: All excited, get a super fun project started, but then… your interest fades, you move on to the next before you finish the first. And then it’s December and you see you have… 20 unfinished projects. If you weren’t afraid to count. This little series is meant to keep me focused on finishing that darn Mahalo Lounge, one stinkin’ day at a time. Perhaps it is inspiring you to finish stuff, too?
Oh. I went 10 months without a door knob on the door from the hallway into the living room.Heck yeah there is more →
On the whateverth day of Kitschmas I finished covering the cushions of my vintage peacock chair and little tuck-under rattan table and chair set with leftover fabric from my draperies. This was pretty easy — I just needed to put my head down and get the job the heck done. My 12 Days of Kitchmas challenge continues to inspire me, and to make the degree of my procrastination when it comes to things like this done, I did this yesterday (Sunday) not a month or week or even three days ago. I’m keeping up by the skin of my teeth. Oh, I fixed some of the trim on the peacock chair too — *soproud*.Heck yeah there is more →
When the well-informed associate at the local lighting store says to you, sort of worriedly, “That is really old fashioned,” you know you’re making a good decision. That’s what I heard when I tried to buy a library-style picture light to illuminate the Vanguard painting behind the bar in my Mahalo Lounge.Heck yeah there is more →
Hahahaha I’m not falling for this again! You had us agonizing over swatches in shades of red/orange/coral for the sectional and you went w/green that wasn’t even presented as as an option……. you pick!😏
I hope you are not angry at me! I go through an arduous decision-making process. Hey: I REALLY am going to use one of these!
But. Umm. Then. Golly….
A dealer found this rare August Holland print — “A Power Within” — then found my story on Holland’s three tiki prints here — then left a comment asking if anyone was interested — then heck to the yeah, sold it to me. Heck yeah there is more →
My sectional custom made by Barclay Furniture, upholstered in Knoll Rivington Palm, was delivered yesterday. I’m still in sneak peek mode on my Mahalo Lounge, so here’s a sneak. I’m pretty over the moon. The sectional is delicious and sized perfectly to my room. The fabric is gorgeous — this photo, un-retouched, does not do it justice. More to come as the room approaches the finish line!Heck yeah there is more →
