Terreeia is in Italy.
It was a last minute decision for her to go (well we decided 6 weeks ago), she has friends who live there some months of the year and I was invited but then I decided I wanted drapes for the house instead. Now that the landscaping is basically finished, I need to finish decorating the inside of the house so I can get it photographed and the drapery is seriously holding things up.
So I said, "Honey, you should go, I'll get drapes and next year we'll go together".
I know, I am a little crazy to choose fabric over Italy but I won't go another winter without the windows being covered. And drapery for the entire house is expensive.
Also I thought I'd be on the get slimmer plan while Terreeia's away since she's the gourmet cook in this relationship–on my own I pretty much eat salad and power bars–but I forgot that my mom now lives nearby. She calls me daily and says "Come and eat". I love my Mom.
As I write this, it's noon on Thursday, I looked in the fridge and found nothing to eat, so I rustled up a Pink Smoothie (which is way better than a power bar) and because I'm my Mother's daughter and she will always add MORE greens to anything so it's even healthier, I thought "Instead of just one medium carrot, how about two? Instead of a 1/4 of a medium beet, how about 2 small beets." Ugh, my lunch currently tastes like pulp! I recommend just following the recipe, the first time I did it was absolutely delicious!!
I try to make green smoothies every day. Irene is a great sport, she drinks them even when I've stuffed them so full of greens that she declares they taste like grass.
Anyway, Terreeia sent me some pictures from her trip I thought I'd share with you.
She sent me these images when she got to Rome. These lipstick heels come with different colours you can change every day she reported.
Red is hot, Kate at Centsational Girl recently blogged about her trip to New York and said it's everywhere.
This is the note Terreeia sent me to go along with the image below:
I emailed her back immediately and said "Don't buy me any sneaker boots, haha".
This is where she's staying. It looks so like Italy doesn't it? Sigh. Love the yellow!
On the drapery saga, I have chosen this fabric for our family room from Robert Allen:
It will be a horizontal, textured stripe, I just love it!
My living room drapery is currently on hold. I originally wanted a satiny look in yellow but when I ordered a yard of fabric from Maxwell to make sure it was the right colour it was too gold so I'm back to the drawing board. I'd love to put the decision off forever really because it's for me but I will decide very soon.
Now I'm looking at linen in yellow and I've found something at Robert Allen in the right colour so we'll see. And I'm still on the hunt for drapes for the master.
So my lovelies, what would you have chosen? Am I decor obsessed or what?
