|Dyson V7 Motorhead Fuschia|
What a difference a day makes. I have been in my house officially for 24 little hours and it feels like home. I was in the other house for 9 months and it never ever felt like home for one minute. I have high speed Internet, I have TV, and I have a brand new security system with cameras in a gated community with great security guards. I have already made great strides in the house with most rooms looking pretty wonderful. I am in love with this house. I always loved the title of Bunny Williams' book An Affair With a House.
I am waiting on starting to hang art for a couple of weeks. My one and only phobia in interior decorating is hanging artwork. For two of the One Room Challenges, I hired the owner of an art gallery in Alexandria, Virginia who hangs art in people's homes to hang all of my pieces - one was very large and another was a set of six, both of which I was nervous about doing myself. I would love to hire someone for a few hours to come over and put everything up for me. Do any of my local followers have a recommendation?
I mentioned ordering the pink Dyson cordless stick vacuum for this house. This review is "An Affair With a Vacuum." It is pink. So so cute. It is light as a feather. It has no cord. It has excellent suction. It goes 30 minutes on a charge - I can do this entire house in 10. I am very very visual. I can't stand ugliness. Even my cleaning tools are works of art to me. Here they are hanging in my old laundry room.
I think this vacuum visually is a little work of art and functionally fantastic. And remember I have two long haired dogs. I highly recommend it.
It's one reason I have always had Apple products - gorgeous form and great function. I still have my raspberry pink IMac.
I came across this old post of mine on Pineapple Monograms. aren't these fun?
So "Florida" style, I think.
I am taking the day off tomorrow - I have not had a day off in weeks. On tap is HomeGoods - the manger has probably already sent out a search party looking for me. And seeing my friend and hairdresser for a cut, color, and blow-dry.
On a somber note, I am incredibly saddened by the number of emails and comments I have received from other survivors of domestic abuse who are followers of CC. Covid is not the only pandemic out there, I'm afraid. I think many women suffer in silence and I think many others who speak out seeking justice face a system that falls so far short of what it should be. I hope when the dust settles I can find a way to use my legal background and personal journey to help other women.
