There's a fungus among us (but I decided to blog about something else)

I'm tired.  Have I ever mentioned that before?  I don't complete full sentences, thoughts, really anything other than appetite, when I'm this tired.

Have you ever read design interior blogs when you're tired?  Gone to TJMaxx when you're tired?  Tried ordering off the dollar menu?  Decided between an ice cream sandwich and York mint patty?  (I ate both plus another york mint patty.  the big ones.)  Gone to AAA to rent a van with all four hubcaps?  DMV?

So now I'm tired an anxiety ridden.  I'm not good enough and AAA and DMV employees have successfully made me feel inadequate and have left me wondering if my children are in fact comparable to ferrets.  (So I didn't brush their hair today!!!!!)  Most importantly, I'm frantically calling, emailing, scouring craigslist for a dresser like this:
(mind you I'm not trying to get a new bedroom furniture sets.  This is for our living room/den)

and I want to turn this:

into this:

Oh the list could go on.  


Hopefully I'll come back Monday (oh, whatever, it's a long weekend.  I call them vacations) with wonderful pictures and stories and the best Irish tan you ever did see.  

See you thennnnnnn.  <3 <3 <3  

(the mere thought of vacation and my fingers just typed 790 words per minute.)


  1. my grandma has that exact white china cabinet, minus the red paint. exact same! i'll make sure you get it when she dies ;)

  2. I love York Peppermint Patties. They are pretty much my favorite candy and now I would love to have one. Or several.

    Those are some amazing projects. The yellow dresser is STUNNING. I definitely think you need to make one just like it.

    I hope you have a wonderful and even more importantly RELAXING vacay. I have missed you immensely, my dear!

  3. love love, I too scour craigslist for dressers worthy of becoming sofa tables... sadly we have hand-me down sofa's so not a wise task, but maybe it could be a tv stand first? haha

  4. I gotta say, I've got a furniture refinishing project that lingers in the back of my mind. It just might be time that I get up off my arse and DO IT ALREADY. This post may have just inspired me.

    Enjoy the vacay and see ya on the flip side.

  5. God love your heart...your a Mommy! Of course you're tired honey! My mother has been tired since 1977. But I hope vacation replenishes the soul and invigorates the spirit! And if not, rum will! But um...not too much...that will start tired cycle all over again. Speaking from experience and all...

    And that furniture?? Is GORGEOUS!! I love it and I know you're going to do amazing things with it! Good luck finding just ONE piece of furniture and not a set on Craigs List. I think when people are ready to sell it...they are ready to sell it all! ;)

  6. Oh how nice! I wish I could buy stuff like that to turn into something pretty!

  7. Talented! That's for sure!
