I don't remember what office space I first saw this sign, but I thought it was hilarious and I have used this phrase many times :
"The beatings will continue until morale improves"
That's pretty much been my attitude about my house lately. I feel like I have been beating her into submission. I realize my personification of my house is not at all normal, but I don't make claims to normality, I just confess what I'm thinking. I've been pretty much convinced that my house thinks it's supposed to shop at Dilliards and do lunch with the house next door. She's been whining at me...."But I have GRANITE COUNTER TOPS! I'm not a farmhouse!" I literally had to call my mother. She said, "It's your house. Do what you want!" Oh. Ok.
So I've been pouring all my creative powers into making this house feel like OUR home. More than just getting stuff moved in, but really working for us. You know that feeling? When you sit down for the first time all day and look around you and think, "I'm at home. This is comfortable and I like looking at this." For months now, I have sat down and thought....."mmmm...what's wrong with this? It neeeeeeeds something."
So that's what I've been working on. Here's a sneak peak of what I've been doing. Click on this link to see the whole set.
