Don’t forget we have a Quiltathon this weekend! Before we get into the Quiltathon, thanks for the suggestions about the two nails in the wall. I had kinda wanted to hang some kind of wall sconce there but I may just pull the nails, patch the holes and paint over them and be done with it. I love these sconces but they don’t go right there. Maybe I will run down to the decorating shop today and see what I find. If I find nothing . . I’m done; nails come out.
I don’t want to take the picture down. I love it and there’s really no other place I can put it. Elton Louviere is a local artist from home and this is one of his prints and it reminds me of the swamps that I love! If you look at his prints, it’s “River Mist”. I have “Ryan Street” hanging in my dining room. Even though I have no place in this house to hang it, I would love to have “Bird’s Camp”. Those are the scenes from home that I miss so much.
And, since the picture is kinda rustic, I wouldn’t mind a swag if I could get one that incorporates moss and woodsy type things. I’d probably be more likely to be able to have one made to my liking if I was in Louisiana but I think if I can’t find the wall sconce that I want, I’ll just take the nails out and forget it.
About hanging quilts, I have quilts over the chairs, over the stair rails, on several quilt racks and I almost feel like we have quilt overload here so I don’t want a quilt hanging on that wall, but if I didn’t have so many quilts all over the house, that wall would be a great place for it.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
About the naked book, I didn’t order it because I never dreamed I’d have a hard time finding it. I’ll order one and solve that little issue.
With Vince out of town, my plans for the day:
- Do the mountain of laundry that Chad brought up this morning. He thinks I haven’t noticed that he saves it til a rainy day so his laundry doesn’t get hung on the line!
- Put the pumpkin butter in jars and get it all put away.
- Go to Interior Motives to check for something for those nails. I’ll show you a picture if I find something.
Do whatever you need to get done today so you can sew with me all weekend, ok?
