Thursday afternoon Mr. Postman brought me one of Teresa's (French Poppy) wonderful prints that she was so kind to give away last week. I chose the Cafe' print...but it was really hard to make a selection; they're all so beautiful. On my list of things to purchase is this print from her Etsy shop...a wonderful companion piece to hang in the little dining alcove off of my kitchen. Of course, that would entail doing a switch-out of kitchen 'furniture' from the alcove to somewhere else so I could put my small bistro set there. It seems like I'm always moving things around. Next weekend is a three-day for me, so as of right now, that's the plan.
I've had the urge to move lately...I absolutely love where I live and it's so convenient to work. On the minus side, it's quite expensive to heat and it really is much more room than I need. When I look around and see the accumulation of furniture and just plain old 'stuff', the thought of moving it (or divesting myself of it) just about does me in. It would be nice to live in a pared-down space...to spend lots less money on housing and utilities...I just don't know if I'm mentally and physically up to it. One of my co-workers is moving, so last weekend I went to look at the duplex he'll be vacating...it's about a third the size of what I have, but it does have potential...and a real back yard and off-street parking. So much to think about!
Do I 'need' all that I have? No...but it's comforting having it around. Look for a book sale to be posted soon...I think I'll put them up here before I list them on Amazon or Ebay. Step number one in de-feathering my nest.
