I love to stay in my pajamas and while away my time on Saturdays (or, frankly, any day of any week, anytime)! Usually it’s a matter of not being able to peel myself away from my laptop and drinking two pots of coffee, while the house collapses in mayhem around me. I figured that I spent my thirties and early forties cleaning and organizing and ironing and cooking (I can hear my sisters spitting out their tea)–now it’s time for me! That sounds drastic, but it only really happens a few times a year that I don’t have to be somewhere, drop off somebody, pick up somebody, buy something, do something, or make something on a Saturday.
Today, I decided to catch up on some amazing blogs that I haven’t visited in a while. I saw a beautiful mantel display on one, so I decided to drag out my neglected camera and relearn how to set it up!
My house looks pretty clean, right? WRONG. That’s why you’ll only see the fireplace from the waist up. Below, it’s a frightening collection of dog toys, magazines, socks and dust bunnies the size of a small dog.
Here’s a really good example of how a whole room can be shaped around a single item. It’s pretty clear that they designed the room around the cushions. I’m pretty darn sure they chose the wall colors last…I could be wrong (NOT).
I have it on very good authority, Kim the back-stabbing-Haiti-relief-pink-toy-car-auction-out-bidder, that the movie Blind Side features my OSO storage jars! Apparently, Sandra Bullock‘s character has two of them on her dressing room table. Way to go Sandra…impeccable taste…I’ve always thought that you and I could be best friends…we both love Jessie’s smouldering bad-boy looks…we both have supernatural comic timing…we both deserve an Oscar…call me.
