TWEAKIN' THE DRESSER and so on and so on....

You would think since I've cut out sugar from my diet that id be tired and horizontal on the couch hey? Nup, instead I've found this new kind of energy that has me buzzin like a bee on yippee beans! I cant stop! I'm painting, I'm re-arringin', I'm tweakin', it's madness i tell you, complete and utter MADNESS !
LOL but I'm lovin it! Not sure about Shane though...yesterday he came home, walked in the bedroom (where i was was folding clothes, wearing a sheepish grin and avoiding eye contact)and declared "You just cant help yourself can you?" He was referring to his once timber bedside table...i say 'once' because yesterday i painted it white ! I laughed my hiney off and said "Babe it's the yippee beans, it's outta my control" !
Today I'm off and racing again....tweakin the dresser! Well it needed dusting so why not tweak it a bit while I'm there? I'm really lovin' the bottom shelf now. I slightly frou froued some sweet old glass bottles i had and popped them on an old bevelled mirror with some of my other pretties. OHMYGAWD can you believe this mirror fell off my wall last week, in the middle of the night and DIDN'T BREAK??? True! I just about wet myself when i woke up and saw it on the floor! Just goes to show they made em to last in the good ole days!
Oh ok so you want to see some piccies don't you...okies here you go then.

I'm bringing in some more blue into our Family Room because we are getting new sofas and i REALLY REALLY NEED THESE!

They are a real icy blue and i adore them. I know you're thinking, Uh Shann, they aren't pink.....Well i know that but i love blue too and our Family room has to suit everyone... and it just helps that i saw these and i want to marry them. LOL.
Im still in the process of convincing Shane but......i told him i would clean up the dog poop for a month if he got me these..he saw right through that lie but..DRAT he knows me so well. Onto plan b then i think!!

Spring is in the air ......perhaps that is what has put the extra bounce in your step Shan?

Either way, you are getting heaps done.

Bottle some of your energy and send it my way PLEASE!!!
You make me chuckle.....I picture you buzzing around your house and singing too :)

Bek said...

Wow you have been busy, even your blog post sounds full of energy.

My husband can totally relate to yours, he sais the same thing often. Once he said I am happy as long as you don't paint me white. I told him he better not sit still 2 long in one place as I can't be held accountable when I have a paint brush in hand:) I did paint him pink the other day. He was giving me cheak but I did not paint him white. Maybe the guys should blog....

Good luck with the sofa's.

The couch is to die 4! I'm redoing my sitting room and had a heck of a time finding a couch I liked. I ended up having to pick the fabric and have it made. Lovely dresser too. You just keep tweekin'!
