not only is change happening in my soul but as it does, change is happening in my home. I have an old dining room table.. probably 1930's. I would call it vintage but am a tad tired of that word. How it has lost it's true meaning these days. Just about everything on ebay or etsy is listed as vintage. Not. the word that should be used for that is repro. My table is not a reproduction, it is old.... anyhow, that is not what I am posting about...
the chairs. The chairs that came with the table need a little bit of pizzazz.. a little bit of ...how would the french say it?? .. .... the fabric was in need of a change. it was getting a little jaded.
grab a fistful of fabrics, all different:
explain to husband that it will look wonderful if these fabrics could be covering these chairs... wishing & hoping that he will get the hint and offer to do it for you.
.... and he did!
next on the list is something or some kind of Trompe L'oliel (and that is not the correct word, I know.. but it sounds good and it is suiting my 'french' mood of today very well... and i know what I mean) on the wall under a painting of a rose... of course it will have to be the usual 'La vie en rose' which apparently means 'bed of roses'... perfect. My life is truly a bed of roses.
what is happening at Inglewood? my tanks are overflowing with all the rain we have had the past week. I am not sure if autumn is on the way or if we are in for some hot humid weather when the rain stops. The crickets are chirping loudly which to my friend Peter means that autumn is here... but as it always does, autumn will come eventually. I have two large pumpkins on my vine and tamarillos are forming on the tree.
No news on my brother in law Paul. He had surgery yesterday and we are now waiting for the biopsy results. UPDATE: it seems that the tumour is cancerous and now we are waiting to see if it will be responsive to treatment. The prayers that are wrapping us all in love and care are definitely helping.. so thank you again. so much
