The Tour Part 1

Monday, August 18, 2008

I am told that the coolest thing about looking at blogs is seeing how other people have made use of found or rescued objects. Most of the things in my house are from garage sales, clerance racks and hand-me downs. My husband and I went from a one bedroom apartment 1 year ago to a much larger home. I found myself in need of a lot to just fill the space. What you will see now is the aftermath of a mad scramble to fill my space to make it presentable to live in and for someone else to eventually buy. The picture to the left shows a cluster of small objects that work together to fill a very large space. I am often made fun of because I will buy lots of small things in lieu of some of the larger things that may make more of an impact. What you see here is the result of that innate quality. Here is another example of that same design flaw that I have. The "stick" is my attempt to fill a very large space and bring some of the outside in. I have a very formal home with lots of intricate trim. Most people who know me would say that it is not really "me". This stick and others make my home look a little nature sheik(sp?). My mother (who is my real estate agent) made me take down the rest of the sticks. A little inconvenient having her be both. Now she feels it even more part of her job description to tell me what I should or should not do in my house. More later!

Hey Sarah,

Vic sent me your blog addy and I've enjoyed reading. Your Sunday morning praise and worship sounded exactly like you were in the right place at the right time. Sometimes we need that extreme quiet and solitude to worship.

Enjoyed the peek into your house and look forward to seeing more. Yes???
