Today marks my 1-year anniversary writing this blog and doing Instagram. It has been so much fun and very rewarding. Maybe its been more for me than anyone else really. I never realized before just how much I do in a year. I have always been this way, going from project to project, planning my next project months out, while I am finishing up another, because, well you know, time management. I am all about that, and I wouldn’t want to waste any time doing the planning once I’m finished a project, I want to be ready to go. I wake up in the morning and I am off and running, sometimes I feel like I can’t keep up with myself. I drive my husband crazy, and maybe a few others, what am I saying, there are days I drive myself crazy. They never known what to expect, but they always expect something. Things are always changing, or evolving as I like to think. I make tons of mistakes, but…..I learn along the way. My taste has change or morphed into about 3 different distinct styles over 30 years. In my early twenties it was Primitive, then that changed to Victorian with the purchase of this home and now I am more Traditional. I guess that’s one change every ten plus years.
I have learned a lot over the years. Some advice, spend the big bucks on classic pieces, consider the light in your room when picking a paint color, don’t be afraid of paint use it on walls and or furniture, Antiques are always in style if styled correctly, vessels of any kind are a good investment: buy a lot of them, mix the old with the new for a fresh modern look, take chances, and never say never.
Well I am off and running with lots of plans for the New Year. I certainly don’t want to wish time away, but I can’t wait to see the things I have planned unfold before my eyes.
Thanks for Stopping by the Blog
