So I have been a bad blogger.
Life and stuff, ya know?
Oh and of course, the house.
Can't forget that.
Summer is winding down and I find myself back to my old standby, black and white.
I tried color, even had a word...coloriness.
But old loves sometimes linger.
Last time we chatted I was gearing up for City Flea.
Since then I have started a new job...
an awesome new job...here...
it will be a perfect fit.
It will even require a blog, and Facebook and Pinterest and tweets.
More on that soon.
Hence the simplification of the house.
I need to be able to keep it under control.
I even moved the dining room yet again.
Back to a reading room, good for cozy autumn days and not for piling everything that comes in the door onto the dining room table.
Anyone else have that issue?
I for one am outlawing piles of junk in this house.
Because no one in the family pays much attention to my rules I suppose I will be the only one following them.
Speaking of junk...thrifted clock $6 and framed vintage B&W photo of NYC $2...score.
Having said that, my simplification calls for less...
less objects to dust, less clutter, just plain old less.
One comes in two must go out, at least in theory, haha.
Oh but I could not resist a little orange.
This IKEA rug was love at first sight
when I saw KariAnne at Thistlewood Farms using it in her gatehouse.
Orange just keeps calling me.
Maybe it is the coming change of season.
Or just that orange and gold are plain pretty.
Apparently I need to do a bit of vacuuming.
Two of the dogs are at the groomers getting shaved.
Can they shave cats too?
Boy that would really cut down on the work around here.
I doubt the cats would be amused.
I can just picture the scathing looks...total disdain...
Do you ever feel like everything is complete?
Do we ever finish?
Life is definitely a work in progress.
Goals change, needs change, tastes change.
One thing that remains constant is my joy at visiting all of you.
A little stretch of time to fill my eyes with images and my heart with words.
I really will try to be a better blogger.
Also, I haven't eliminated all of the coloriness.
I just can't get a good photo of my front room.
Any tips on interior photography would be gratefully received.
Wow, I am all over the place today.
Anyhoo, glad to be checking in.
Yours in just plain living, P.
