Just A Little Something For That Particular Corner

        I'm just trying to take it easy today. I don't have any games...tennis, football, or otherwise...on my schedule. And the only 'pressing' thing I have to do is finish a custom order for some little crochet flower appliques. My customer wants three little flowers to add to the bottom of her cowl. It's not a very 'pressing' project because I already did the flowers...pretty much...last night. I just have the backs to make for them today, and they'll be done. I'm using these colors...
         I admit....I 'am' feeling some anxiousness today though...about the car...and hubby's new route (he's fretting about it a bit because it's new)...and my health (still not feeling all that great, and now I have a leg that's aching all the time too! UGH). And so I'm gonna distract myself a little today...Not complain about it all!...I'm just gonna put my mind somewhere else, and pretend. Pretend it's all fine...and pretend that I'm decorating the house. ^_^ Not the WHOLE house! Just a few spaces, that need just that little 'something'! :-)
       Like the piano in the header photo. The piano...PHONE!...

       I think it looks classy...and 'cute as all get out!' ^_^ I could see it on a table next to the front door.
       And I need a few throw pillows here and there, for the sofa, etc.... I really liked the ones I saw in this shop called bedbuggs...A little cream and brown decorative flower pillow...

           A red rose pillow...

        Trust me when I tell you...I could roam around this shop all day! I could make my whole house a pillow sanctuary!! LOL Just click --> HERE <-- and you'll see what I mean!!

         I don't NEED any more, for real!...I've got tons of candles and candle holders all over the house!...but I'd love to have this pretty votive candle set for my bathroom just the same!!...

        Are you pretending along with me?! ^_^ Did you see anything you 'needed' yet?! No?!....How about this giant sized (63 x 45) modern abstract landscape painting?! :-] ...

           I think this would look so pretty hanging over my bed!...if 'YOU' don't buy it first I mean! LOL...Of course I'd have to remove the big portrait of the lady. O_0 
             Hmmm....I'll have to think about another place in the house for that one. Maybe the guest bedroom/office...But that green is perfect for my bedroom! :-/ WOW! Even pretend redecorating is tough! ^_^

       Okay...one more little thing...

          ...this cute little Victorian Hat Lady Jewelry Box! This would definitely be a frivolous buy! ^_^ But I'm known around my parts as' the hat lady'! So I immediately related to this box....that holds jewelry....HELLO!! ^_^
       Ahhhh! Taking time to pretend is fun. :-) ... It didn't change anything!....but it also didn't cost anything! ^_^ ... Speaking of not costing anything, I wanted to share a GREAT giveaway with you!...Not my scarf this time either...even though that's still available too. (see the right hand sidebar) :-) No! This time it's a Giveaway on the blog savvy spice...

        It's a Jason Wu floral handbag...Just follow the link to see how simply you can enter....numerous entries if you want!...The Giveaway ends Monday, February 27th.

       That's NOT pretend!! ^_^ ... Okay, I'm off to rest...and watch some t.v. for a while. Taking it slow and easy today. :-] Have a good day everybody! :-) {Sharing an 'oldie' poem too.....really taking it easy! ^_^}

Ease, By Rhyme

To ease my mind,
I jot down a rhyme.

When forced to think,
my brain cells link.

With emotions on paper,
anxieties taper.

With the flow of my pen,
I'm  at peace again.

And to jot down this rhyme,
brought ease to my mind.       


  1. Hope you are feeling better soon :) love the cushions, my favourite is the pink spotty one ;)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

    Enter me

    1. Thank you, Bee. :-] I'm sure I will. You can't keep a big oice...or typing finger...down for long! LOL...And thanks for the cushion love too!...Have a good day!...And you're entered.

  2. Deb I hope the car gets fixed soon. I know what it's like to be a vehicle down and it is not fun. Hope you get to feeling better. Remember sometimes stress brings on our illnesses. Relax and have a Great Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Thanks Velma. I hope it gets fixed too!!!!! Aargh!!!! :-)) And you may be right about the stress affecting me too, but whatever. Some things have to run their course when they're not in your hands to change them. I just pray for patience. And I'm getting that. :-] Have a good rest of the day, Vel!

  3. Take care of yourself and remember to breathe! :)
    Love that phone but I think it would take me a while to get used to dialing!
    Love your rhyme!

    1. :-) Thanks for the reminder. I just took a deep breath!! LOL...And I like that phone too. I don't know if I'd try to use it to dial out. I'd just get in-coming calls...and smile. :-)...And thanks for the nice words about my rhyme too!...Have a good rest of the day!

  4. I love that piano phone you found. It looks amazing! It kind of reminds me of a toy that I had a child. Those cushions with the flowers look wonderful. I quite like the brown one with the daisy.

    Sorry to hear that you aren't feeling the best. I know that stress about the car doesn't help. I wish we lived closer to one another so that Mark could help work on the car and get it all fixed. He's very clever that way :) I hope you're feeling better soon & that relaxing in front of the TV helped.

    1. Yes Jo! I like that phone too! I remember seeing one sorta like that YEARS ago that was shaped like an antique car. I thought the piano idea was kinda classy looking. I really like it!! :-] And those flowers cushions are gorgeous too! ALL of them!...And I'm feeling a bit better tonight. I got quite a bit of rest today. Hopefully after another good night of sleep I'll start to turn the corner...feel good-wise. :-) We'll see!...And why oh why isn't Australian right around the corner?!! ^_^

  5. I hope you get better soon & the car is ok. Love the piano phone!

    1. Thank you. :-] I'm already feeling better today. So, I'm hoping that continues...And I'm glad you liked the phone. Hello!.....Hello! ^_^
