the other day, i was in my master bathroom, and i noticed this doll-size rocking chair. my only thought was, "why do i still have this hanging around my house?!?"
i will be the first to tell you that some of the fun things in our house are items that we *find* left out for free pick-up. my husband is especially good in spotting the great "ground score." (his words.) this rocking chair was NOT one of them. we have struggled to find a place for this item in two houses. there simply just isn't room anywhere. it recently spent about 6 months in our closet. i cleaned out the closet two weekends ago, and moved the rocking chair into the adjacent bathroom, thinking i would then move it to the car (only because you have to pass through the bathroom to get out of the closet.) there it has been sitting. it's gone now!
the other day, i was in my closet, and i noticed this country cat draft dodger. my only thought was, "why do i still have this hanging around my house?!?"
(same closet cleaning episode). i am tempted to call this a "kountry kat" draft dodger, because that would tell you that it does NOT go with my decor. at all. it's a throwback to a job i had working for an importer of gift decor. it used to have a matching doorknob hanger. i don't know why i though i needed these things. i don't know why i managed to toss the doorknob hanger but not it's heavier, scarier older kat sibling? i'm sorry i did not photograph it's gangly legs or wire-filled "pose-able" tail. you will never see it now!
the other day, i was in my side yard, and i noticed this pile of leaves. my only thought was, "why do i still have this hanging around my house?!?"
this pile of leaves was collected well before Christmas, i'm sure of it. and the way you approach my house from the road, you would have seen this pile of leaves every time you came to visit. it had, of course, become invisible to me! fortunately, it was nothing that a leaf bag and approximately 4.7 minutes worth of work couldn't fix!
the other day, i was in my creative zone, and i noticed this good-mail-to-be. my only thought was, "why do i still have this hanging around my house?!?"
