“So you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering.” - Brenda Ueland I am one of those people that gets a new item for my home and I temporarily go into my own little world. My husband Rob knows it when he sees it. "There she goes!" he says with a knowing laugh. And so the decorating domino effect begins.
But Spring is finally in the air my friends and this is typically when larger decor and organizational endeavours rear their pretty heads. I bring this up today because we just got some new shelves...all beautifully white and empty...just waiting to be filled. Rapture! (But I sit here waaaaaay past my bedtime just staring at the blank canvas that my husband just finished setting up trying to stay seated and focused enough to write this post because this little shelf project is gonna be a glorious series of workouts!)

And don't question me mid-nesting because until I say so, "I'm not finished yet!" Things start to look like my house has been ransacked and robbed before it slowly but surely starts to take a new but aesthetically pleasing and rejuvenating form. Everyone who knows me well understands that I have to try approximately three thousand, two hundred and sixty seven combinations and replacements before I am satisfied.
That is, until I bring home the next perfect little thing.
