….but in the meantime…..
here are some pictures of the in progress to my hooking
I started out with a nice primitive color called “beeswax”….
…and started replacing it with a paint called “sweet 16”.
Kenny refers to it as the “pink nightmare”
This room has needed to be re-done for quite a while…..
…..for years I was always trying to re-organize it, so that everything
Well, guess what?
Sometimes you just have TOO MUCH stuff!!!
I sold (3) 33 gallon trash bags of wool to my friend Renee at
because I realized that I would probably NEVER IN MY LIFETIME
use all of that wool! A lot of this wool I’ve had for years, so if there
is a Rebecca Erb wool that you used years ago and can’t find it,
you might check out her store.
I’ve even been working on a wool quilt to try and use some of it up,
but more on that in another post.
I also let go of journaling items that I’d been holding onto as well.
This re-do has been a journey in being realistic about how I spend my
time and how much “real estate” I can allow certain things in my life
to take up.
There has been a lot of “letting go” and “space clearing” as well
as just pondering…..
Why am I hanging onto this?
What do I want this space to look like?
I’ve purchased a few new things for the space such as a nice new
pillow top mattress for the bed, because now someone could actually
stay over and sleep in this room….YAY!
I’ve also purchased a nice comfy reading/hooking chair. Have been looking
for a pretty floor lamp and perhaps some sort of low cabinet for some storage,
but have realized I may or may not need the cabinet because I might have storage
in another piece of furniture somewhere else in the house.
Okay, now I’m rambling…..more pictures later.
They will be much more serene!
