Ever feel as if this is where you might belong?
I feel this is where I might be headed soon….
I saw this sign on a vintage window at the Springfield Extravaganza two weeks ago and it just caught my eye. I wonder why?! I think I am going nuts!! These past few weeks have been a blur, with all that is going on around here. And now I am trying to get organized for my trip to Florida next week for a wedding and the furniture market in North Carolina a couple of days after Florida!
The daughter of our good friends, Rick and Kim is getting married Oct. 9. This will be a fun shin-dig, ‘cause Rick and Kim are absolute hoots! Kim puts me to shame when it comes to the definition of the words, “Crazy and wild.” She said we would be meeting the future parent- in-laws together at the rehearsal dinner! Images reminiscent of “Meet the Fockers” keep coming to mind. Yikes! And I’m not even related!
Rick and Kim look perfectly normal, don’t they? He’s retired military; they golf & play tennis; they have two perfect kids; they have me for a friend….. *smile*
But Kim and I are not what you would call ordinary- we are really kinda nutty and often get into situations that have our husbands walking off and pretending not to know us. I know that those of you who know me personally are nodding your heads- I can see you…. uh huh…..
So I’ll definitely try to put my best foot forward when I meet their daughter’s future in-laws. If we’re lucky, Mrs. In-law will turn out to be just like us and the night will turn out to be loads of fun and mischief! I’ll have to let you know when I get back. I’m sure Mr. Sullivan is hoping I will behave and not disgrace the family name. He’s not going with me, by the way, so there will be no one to rein me in.
Until then, I wanted to show you what I bought recently. I know that most of you already have something similar to this- I’m only now jumping on the bandwagon to buy one because I’ve been too lazy to drive over to the fabric store to get linen and paint to create my own.
I found this at Tuesday Morning and love it. Fits just fine against the back cushion of the leather chair in the great room. I think it adds a little touch of European flair to my eclectic room. Ooo la la…
And maybe, just maybe~ I’ll get out of the asylum and have enough of a renewed sense of peace and calm so I can get over to Joann’s to purchase what I need to make a pillow of my own. I’ll let ya know if that happens any time soon….
