Have decor will travel.....

Ola ya'll,

Saturday Floozie 2 and I spent hours and hours out on the boat.I brought my camera and totally forgot to take any pictures.Doh!

We were supposed to meet up with our neighbor Dr. Charlie and his girlfriend Jennie. We searched for them about half the day and never found them. No surprise there.The lake was so crowded with boats it was like a holiday weekend .

I was going to go back out yesterday but I could not keep my eyes open. I was a lazy slug all day.

I spent some time on the internet looking to solve our decor problem (in the England house)

What's the decor problem? We don't have any decor. That's the problem.Not only are the walls completely bare (except for cat shelves) they are also painted a hideous shade of white with the nail holes painted a non-matching shade of white. *cringe*

Everything over there is ridiculously expensive and /or ugly. (No offense Britain)

This for example. I could buy this at the thrift store and spray paint it black myself for about 4 dollars.

No, I will not pay 40 bucks for it in England.

How about this? I do think it's cute for a Christmas decoration.

But for 35 dollars? Umm, I think not!

How about this? (Bradley! You must get one of these!)

Isn't it adorable? I've never seen the likes of it in the US.

But ....I digress. The only way I am going to have a decor in England is if I bring it with me.

I have started collecting some lightweight stuff that will be going in my suitcase.

After going through every speck of art in Hobby Lobby........this is what I have so far.

I'll have to get frames over there.


More cats.

Kitchen towel hooky thing.

You like thrift shops. England is full of wonderful thrift shops. And the English love flea markets. No need to buy new stuff to decorate with - there is gold in those thrift shops. You will find a lot of interesting, attractive and unique stuff. Pet Peeves: people who hate sunflower eaters? If someone would want to eat a sunflower (are they good to eat?) why would another person hate them? I'll have to think about that one. We like to eat roasted sunflower seeds but have never tried eating the whole flower. ? G5
