“I would like to say I’m taking all this building chaos in stride. Really… I would like to say that… but since I can’t, what I can say is I tend to go to my happy place when the days turn comical. Have I mentioned I have a port-a-john sitting in my front yard? Oh, I have? Well, I believe it bears repeating.
I’m not always the most organized person, and I am often amazed how I manage to get anything done. I have to work hard to maintain order in my life, seeing as how I don’t come by it naturally, and because I have no control over what is happening to my environment right now, I’ve taken to thinking about minute details.
There’s a scene in the movie Romancing the Stone, where Kathleen Turner takes a wrong bus, winds up in the middle of the jungle, is sucked down a mud slide, and is plopped down in the middle of a huge puddle. She is disheveled, her clothes are ripped, she broke off the heel of her shoe, and when she regains her footing, she begins looking for a lost button. You see how ludicrous this is, right? Well, right now, I’m looking for a button!
So, here’s the deal. Tim gave me this awesome vase for Christmas. Actually, it’s really more like 8 little vases stuck together… think sea anemone. Anyway, it should have 1 little flower in each vase. I’ve had it put away for our new room. I decided tonight, it would do me good to find flowers for this vase.
I happened upon the lovely Etsy shop The Felt Florist and found these little felt rosette flowers. https://www.etsy.com/listing/176621923/bunch-of-12-rosettes-build-your-own?ref=listing-shop-header-1 They will be just the right size for my vase. I’m waiting to hear back from the shop owner with a question I have about colors.
When I get the flowers, I’ll be sure to share a pic of them in the vase. Should be awesome.
And, there you go, my friends… I found my button!”
Well, here is the vase from Tim. He bought it at a small shop SOMEWHERE in South Carolina, but I see they are available on Amazon, too.
And here is the lovely bouquet of flowers I bought from The Felt Florist on Etsy.
They are going to look lovely in the new room!
