I have been thinking about whether or not to post this for several days now. I don’t usually like to post about me, except maybe my great thrift finds or house renovations, but I have been feeling guilty for the past week and thought I should post a little note to apologize for my lack of comments on everyone’s blogs (and on this blog for that matter). My life has been quite chaotic lately – to be brief, my boyfriend of 6 years and I have decided to take a break, so for the first time in five and a half years, I will be living on my own. In the past week I also found a new house and have been trying to buy it and have been going through hell to do so. I still don’t have the house and am not hopeful that I will get it. So in the next little while, whether I end up selling my current home or not, I’m going to be pretty busy with non-blog-related stuff. I have only had enough time to publish my posts that I prepare on weekends and Jo and I have some blogging commitments coming up that I have to get ready for. So I am pretty stressed for time these days, and my apologies for not being able to visit all my favourite blogs on a daily basis. I’ve included some photos above of some of my favourite rooms in this house…if I end up selling I will miss this place, but I think a change would be really good right about now.
I love parcels in the mail and this one from Kim is fantastic! Three magazines including two from Domino, Canadian Indian art cards and print, necklaces, table runner from the fabric in her dining room, flock paper from her canvases in the hall and a cute piece she picked up on etsy. I love the pieces that are connected to her home and I particularly love the card that came with it. You see I got to see her handwriting and that was like seeing Kim. (We still haven’t even heard each others voices.) The card was the best thing….well maybe the two copies of Domino were. Just kidding!! Thank you so much Kim.
This week’s retro treats are from Better Homes Decorating Ideas, Ruth Quatermaine, Meridith Publishing Company, 1967. My scanner has been running hot. True 60s inspiration or desperation. Love it or hate here’s your retro therapy.
