Good Morning All -
Most mornings Mr Beachy brings me a cup of coffee and my section of the Daily News, I turn on the morning show, grab the newest magazine I haven't read yet, and get to work. Wish I could say it looks like the photo above but it really looks like this - rumpled and congested with the computer, paperwork and the phone...yep, it's my desk in a bed.
When I've caught up or had enough - I get to sweeping up and figuring out what needs to be done. More often than not, a chandelier needs beading, my ebay store needs attention, and I've always got painting and whitewashing to do. Of course, there's always cleaning, cooking, and laundry to do in between and I don't think I'll ever catch up on everything. I also have a constant little voice in my head telling me to head over to the thrifts for the spectacular stuff that was just dropped off.
Anyhow - A few weeks ago I cleaned out the Linen Cabinet - I don't need this much anymore, and I must let go of the extras. So here's my pile of what's going on to ebay and etsy, maybe you'll see something you love - there will more detailed photos over there.
Here's what I'm making over this week - painting, whitewashing, lining - a few will be for a couple of friends who are having birthdays - the rest will be sold.
One by one I'll get around to playing with each one of these treasures - lovin every minute, even in this incredibly hot summer with part of Los Angeles burning up in raging fires. My heart goes out to everyone affected, evacuated and scared. I hope it's over soon - every single firefighter is a hero.
Just a note: See the canning jar with the single hydrangea? I cut this blossom in my garden 3 weeks ago and look at it, still so fresh. I change the water every few days, but how is it so healthy after this long, normally hydrangeas barely last a couple of days, even when you soak the whole thing first. Maybe this - I don't know...but I accidentally break crystals all the time while working, I put em in a jar with some sea glass and maybe a few shells. Could that keep em alive longer? I don't know, but it worked.
Take Care - Make it a Great Day -
Sorry for the duplicate photo of the messy bed - I mean office.
