Isn’t that a clever blog title? I’m sorry I can’t think of anything other than “this is another random blog post”, which is dumb. Especially considering last week’s blog post title was “hi”.
I had intentions of blogging on Monday, but the week got the best of me. A client friend once told us a story about a time she could not form a sentence. She was a week or so postpartum and was attempting to have a very basic conversation with her husband. She couldn’t put words together to make any sense at all. This tends to happen when you have a lot going on. All that would come from her mouth was, “my words are not good.” We love that line so much we use it daily. Our client actually sent us this quote framed in a pretty little silver frame for Christmas and there are many days that I’m tempted to strap it to a sweatband and wear it on my forehead.
My words are not good, but here goes a blog post.
I had a little photo shoot at my house this week. Not only are my words not good, but neither is my house. Okay, my house is not that bad, but being in the business makes me extra critical of my own space, which has a serious case of cobbler’s children syndrome. Nothing like a photo shoot to kick my rear into high gear and order a few things I’ve needed for a while. I finally committed to pillows. I love green, so it’s probably no surprise that’s the common theme here.
On more than one account I mistakenly called that Schumacher fabric “opium leaf” and then joked about eating the pillow once it arrived.
Unrelated, I bought Sloane some moccasin booties last week.
Then I introduced her to painting. And made the mistake of using the term “finger paints”.
So the next day we took our party outside.
(Table from Target, stool from Ace Hardware) If you look closely you’ll see that she took the colored paint brushes and placed them in their respective paint colors.
Yesterday over my morning coffee I was standing in a daze waiting for the caffeine to kick in and looked over at my rolling pins. They make me happy. I also like that my corbel brackets multitask.
Two of the rolling pins are Sloaney’s, but she shares with me. I share cookie and pizza dough with her, so it works out well.
That’s all for this week, sorry about my words.
