DID I EVER TELL YOU I COLLECT FIGURINES?
Hi Ladies: Hope you are all having a great Sunday. Our last week of February, did this month just fly by or is it me? I will be starting to take down my Valentine's Day things. I hate that, I love all the hearts and pinks and love messages. It just makes you feel good inside. I do green in March, not sure why, (St. Patrick's Day?) I just like each month to have color, so March is green. I do like to leave a little pink around so decorations are really green and pink. Even as I write this it feels a little weird. I am over the top. Maybe therapy is not so far off. Blogging really makes you take a good look at yourself. I don't think of myself as self-absorbed, but as I read my post, I am beginning to question a few things. Do you ever wondered what your grandchildren will think of you as they read your blog when they grow up? Pray for me would you?
It is cold around here and still raining off and on. So far my new roof is working well, thank God! We are not done with the rain or the mud slides yet. We have been in drought mode for so long, so the change is good. At least that is what I tell myself, when I am having trouble moving around because of the dampness.
Master bath is still undergoing remodeling. It is such a mess. It is very weird to have a handyman walking in and out of my bedroom to get to the bath. I like my home to look in order when people visit. It throws me all off when things are messy. Everything that was in the bathroom is now in my bedroom. I am spring cleaning at the same time and wishing it was Spring. I am giving a lot of items to the Goodwill, which is a good thing. Even, Noah, complained Saturday. He did not like that I moved his rocking chair and let me know about it. He quickly moved it where it belonged. Then he said in almost a yell, "I want apple juice!". It felt like he really was saying "I need a drink!" It made me laugh so hard.
Noah can say up to 6 words in a sentence and he is not even 2 yet. Is he a genius or what? The hard thing, for me, is to figure out what characters he is talking about. They have names like Yo Gabba Gabba! (It is a cartoon, who would have thought?) What happen to Mighty Mouse? We had to go get some yogurt with sprinkles. Life is always better with a little sprinkles!
Anyway, did I ever tell you I collect figurines? I think I did. I have quite a few. Since I do not have any "March" decorating done, I thought I would show you a few of my figurines. I have some in every color except orange, they are so pretty and girly. I love girly things, they seem to make life just a little softer. It is the middle of the night and I am having trouble sleeping due to pain. So if this post sounds like I am not very focused, please cut me some slack.
I picked up this yellow plate, I think it is Majolica. I really like it. This could be the beginning of a new love for me (therapy)! If you happen to know if that is what the plate is, please let me know. Thanks!
I received this wonderful gift from my dear friend, Gwen. She sent me some pink pearls (top of page). Gwen always knows when to send me some "love". I do wear most of my jewelry, I just like to see them out. That is why I decorate with them. They come out by color, of course! When you are neurotic it crosses all lines. Please stop by and say hello to my dear friend Gwen at http://acharminghome.blogspot.com/. Tell her I sent you.
Have a wonderful day! Blessings, Martha
