Okay all you embellishing, altering and refinishing friends out there. Do I have a challenge for you!
I have mentioned my Mother’s visit in June. Apparently while she was here she decided I needed more furniture (notice, I didn’t say new furniture). For the past month she has been gathering up odds and ends to send to me.
The load arrived today and I’m not at all sure how to make it work for me. She upholstered and sewed cushions for all of it out of the same fabric. But none of the wood matched in color, style, scale, anything.
Please give me constructive ideas of how I can make this collection of flea market finds work as a cohesive whole.
Something is seriously wrong with my thinking skill lately. Maybe I walked too close to a thought sucking black hole, or it could be the constant background noise of cartoon voices and squabbling children. But I just can’t seem to string two thoughts together.
As an example, I went to an interview today and forgot to ask the person I was interviewing what his last name was. He is from Ecuador, and I was struggling so hard to understand him, I couldn’t think of what question to ask him next.
I’m lucky I made the trip there and back alive. I kept forgetting things like how to switch gears and rather one should stop or go at a green light. I have so many things on my mind right now; it’s all I can do to remember what day it is.
I need a vacation from summer vacation.
