Where I muse about just about everything...
From the weather in Texas, to my kids, pets, travel and friendships. Basically, about life. And oh yeah, about my Coquette Bath & Home™ products, too.
It's been a few weeks since I last wrote, but believe me, it hasn't been quiet. I'm buying a new house and there's been a lot of emails flying back and forth, and data going to the bank, and looking around to find new stuff.
I've drawn out ideas on graph paper (and then regular paper when I mislaid the graph paper packet!) and I've been trying so hard to find cool stuff for this my first real home.
Now...I've had a home before. But this is my first one solo. I was buying a house, just my lonesome, about 25 years ago. When I met this guy. And decided to stop that purchase. I lost $500 down payment...but it was okay, cause I was in...well, probably not love (now that I think about it) but whatever...I did. And then I decided not to do. And that brings us to now.
So this is my first, just by myself, house. And I want it to be amazing. I found a very cool house, but then there was the issue of furniture. Whenever you move there are always things that don't quite fit. And that's true here. I still have a 'regular' house with 3 bedrooms, but the rooms are smaller than currently. So I'm adjusting. And that's fine.
I need to find a nice couch and a dining table (because the one I have is too large and--really--too destroyed by 20 years of kids and coloring and nail polish and spilled nail polish...etc.) Today I found this, though...
Really nice to sit upon, and I'll also recover it. The one I have is beige and I intend to pad it a bit more, and maybe firm up the seat cushion a tad...and then put a lovely wild fabric on it.
I also found my closet light, but more on that later! Hope your day is good and talk to you soon!
Hiya! Daylight savings time begins this weekend. And while I do hate this moving clocks this and that, there is absolute truth in the reality that springtime is coming.
Because it surely has been a weird winter here in North Texas! I love springtime. All of the trees put out fresh new leaves and flowers are everywhere. For a few weeks, I can even sleep with my window open, welcoming in the cool nightime air. And it is pretty blissful.
I'm also moving to a new home this spring. After much thought, I've decided to move. A slightly large space, actually, on a nice sized lot, and I'm going to create the 'ultimate girl closet' (because the house was obviously designed by a dude...and a dude who wasn't into clothing, because the master bedroom closet is amazingly bad. More on THAT later...)
On the way to the move, though, well...I have stuff. Lots of books to sort, and knick knacks to pack. Some to sell and donate. And, then there's the products. Yeah, I do have a lot of that, too.
Which is usually a very good thing. But...well, I'd rather send it to you, than pack and move. So, if you noticed the homepage of this site, you'll note that I'm giving a freebie away to you, my amazing customers. Every order over $35 gets a free gift.
No special code. Nothing to do. And this even applies to my Etsy store, too! Order whatever you like (just make sure every order is over $35 before shipping/taxes) and I'll throw in something else.
I promise you'll love it.
