Well hello sweet friends. What a wonderful and nice surprise to see that so many of you are still following along. I loved all the ‘welcome back’ comments. Made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
You might reconsider following along though, after you see today’s post….
It is a clear example of how nutty I can be.
You see that posy of flowers there is all nice and beautiful all right, but it makes no sense. No sense at all.
I bought it yesterday for my new house. I even put a little tablecloth down to show it all off.
Now that is all good and well, except……
Today I started the first demolitions and deconstructions in the house. For the next few weeks I will be ripping out floors and ‘additions’, and half-baked DIY projects from previous owners. Making a big old mess. And then after that the contractor will come in with his guys and start even more serious mess-making. So for the next months I will be quite literally biting the dust. And everything will start to look way worse than it does now.
So decorating with a bunch of flowers makes no sense. No sense at all.
I needed to buy my first flowers for the house in celebration of what is to come. And what better way to remind myself that I just need to get through this fase to reach the good fase. This little bunch of flowers is hope and expectation and reassurance that somewhere soon I will be wipping out the white paint and start making things look good again.
This little bouquet of flowers makes me feel welcome, in this still unfamiliar and strange house. And misplaced as it might be, it brings a smile to my face.
I guess this little bouquet of flowers is quite a powerful little thing.
It also might be the last ‘pretty’ image you see here for a while…..
