I just want to memorialize these things so I can remember that I had them once upon a time. See, in the last few years I have developed a little interest in furniture, interiors, design, etc. I don't think it's something I'll ever really be good at, but it's something I enjoy looking at. I go through days or weeks occasionally where I keep up with apartmenttherapy.com like it's my full-time job. I have a folder in my Pictures folder called "Decor", and within that folder are 68 more folders, breaking down inspiration pics into different rooms (Entry, Dining, Master, Kids Rooms, etc.), different pieces of furniture (Chairs, Card Catalogs, Sofas, Window Seats), and even quirky, weirdly specific categories like Peacocks, Houndstooth, Black/Yellow, FurnitureWithFaces, and Slanted Ceilings. Now, I am so incredibly paralyzed by indecision and perfectionism and anxiety that I rarely implement any "decor" of my own. (No, I still haven't hung any photos or art at our new house...what if I ruin the plaster and the whole house comes tumbling down around me?!!) Still, I like to look. And I like to own, if only briefly.
I know my taste does not align with most anyone else's. It's not really the "Utah" style. (I'm not knocking the Utah style...the rustic, comfortable look is appealing in itself just like nearly every look has its own appeal). So I'm not expecting anyone to be over the moon about the pictures I'm about to post. I'm just posting them to keep track of their time in my life and home(s). So, without further ado... (trying out draft.blogger.com's new multiple photo uploading here. I hope it's a million times better than the usual uploading procedure!)
Whew, that multiple upload was smooth! Yay, Blogger! I hate you less now!
Now, some of the inspiration pics that go along with these. Sorry, I am not going to attribute on these. Most from apartmenttherapy.com. some from Domino and other places.
Sorry, lame post! I finally have started putting together photos from our trip to Williamsburg in March and my sisters' trip out here, so, wrap-ups of those great times will be along...someday.
Oh yeah, there was a tornado yesterday in Philadelphia, and a tornado warning out here in the suburbs! It has been raining like crazy all week. Today has been pretty nice, but as I started writing this post it got dark as dark outside and now the rain is coming down again. I hear the weather's not much better in Utah, but I'll see for myself in a few days! Yes, the boys and I are flying out Saturday for a 2.5 week visit home. Tyson can't join us, due to work, but we are going to love seeing all our family and friends. I'm so excited!
