When Mike and I took down our blinds in the spring to paint, we couldn't bear to put them back up, being wood faded to an unseemly, sickly green. So the neighbors have had the delight of watching us live our incredibly stimulating lives every night. You know, having cocktail parties, doing yoga, trimming our bonzais. Oh wait, I mean, sitting on the couch watching Biggest Loser on our laptop.
So a sad day for them has come, as we will no longer be living our lives of couch potatodom on public display. For Christmas I got blinds! Mike is especially glad as now he can maybe kiss me occasionally, and he can run around naked like a little boy who has escaped from the bathtub.
I bought curtains for the front room, to go next to the blue piano and green banquette. The fabric ties the colors together and gives it a nice British library feel. I have already imagined several new projects for Mike inspired by them, including building bookshelves with a ladder, a la Beauty and the Beast. Here is the fabric of the curtains.
For the rest of the house, we got honeycomb blinds, like these.
This next week, I'm working, but I'm going to pretend I'm not working by tackling a big house project that I have to finish in one week, before I have a party here on Sunday. I'll post about it tomorrow!
