Since it’s apparent that I will need to remain at my mother’s home a while longer, I decided to return home to Phoenix to parole my remaining items from storage—the reason for the trip.
In the time I’ve been back in the Midwest, I’ve been lucky enough to find some inCREDible pieces of furniture to re-work. So I will –essentially– have a whole new household of furniture to work with! But this is NoT to say I’m kickin’ all my FABulous old stuff to the curb!
The projects I will be primarily working on will consist of UNpacking and sorting through things to be SOLD or given to my mom & some of the girls.
I’ve decided to lighten the load of some of my CHINA and am picking through to UPgrade some of mom’s dishes and crystal.
How I’ve missed my beaUtiful china again!
I’m thinking to also switch out some of mom’s lamps and other accessories.
With an OVER-abundance of projects to take my pick of, the problem nOw is– finding Space to WorK! If the rain would quit for a while I could spread outside for the immediate things—pretty please-mother nature ?!?
I’ll also try to integrate some of my garden treasures for the time being. . . how nice it will be to begin restoring things for summer. . .
I’ll make some cushions for, and refresh the paint on my comfy high-backed chairs. . . .
This table is a story unto itself—look for a post very soon about it. It’s a crazy story and project that I’d like to repeat—I have another design idea! ; D
These last two are very special to me. The lion head is a fountain, one of 15 that were removed from a Tucson, AZ estate that was being Modern-ized~ugh. I was there to verify the cabinet layouts for a co-worker. The demo-guys had already destroyed the majority of the heads—I BEGGED to save at least THIS!
I bought the iron cupola from a woman who was losing her family farm. She’d had it forEVer and was so sad to let it go—feelings I’m going through now myself.
