Tattle Tales and A New Office





There's nothing like single digit temperatures and snowy days to keep me focused on the warmth and coziness of home.  Like many of you I am all a flutter with organizing and room make-overs.  Today two semi freight trucks dropped off furniture shipments.  The garage is full of huge boxes.  Check:  Patio furniture (tip: when you are looking to buy patio furniture do it in the winter.  50-70% off awesome stuff), also a urban pedestal sink for the bathroom remodel, craft and sewing tables and chairs for my workroom.  I am so excited to get it placed. First of all I want to repaint the workroom.  Before and after shots later. The cardboard boxes will make some amazing playhouses if we can figure out where to store them till summer or til the playroom is finished.


Before Christmas I decided to move my office to a larger room because I need a little more space to spread out.  I asked Mr. T if he would like an office instead of balancing his lap top on his knee while watching TV or reading solely in bed.  In other words I was going to make him a man cave.  He liked the idea so I started thinking about what kind of chair to put in there.  After thinking through a few possibilities-leather, cold-recliner, ugly- I approached Mr. T with the idea of the comfy yellow upholstered chair with ottoman.  His response was classic.  "What yellow chair?"  "Really?" I say, stunned that he doesn't remember the yellow chair which has been in the family room for a few years."  After I jog his memory with a few hints he says, "I didn't know we could sit in that chair."  I couldn't quit laughing.  That's a keeper.  Anyway, after all was said and now done Mr T loves his new man cave.  (picture later)  But the question remains does the man of the house really notice what you've been doing to the house? ;)

But the real truth is Mr. T is amazing how he lets me have my space to create, nest and putter.  He doesn't second guess my decorating decisions and is a huge supporter of all my endeavors.  Love you Mr. T.
