If You Give A Girl A Pumpkin
She is going to decide she needs to strip her apothecary cabinet down ta naked!
Because she likes to start from scratch.
Someone needs to bonk that girl on the head! I don’t know what is wrong with her?
After she strips it down and gives it a good dusting, she decides she needs to vacuum the wood blinds and move the beast to dust behind it too. Might as well make a day of it!
Again… someone! Please. Bonk that girl on the head.
Then she commences
rebuildi redecorating, placing the new pumpkin right in the middle of it all!
That pumpkin needs star billing. After all… it was all the damn pumpkins fault she’s cleaning and tearing the sun room apart on one of the hottest days of the year. The upstairs is cooking, and so is she!
But she is determined (i.e. stubborn as hell-o!)
And that damn cabinet, was getting damn decorated, if it was that last damn thing she did.
She decided to keep it fairly simple and concentrate on housing the extra plates, tea cups & saucers that would need to be within easy reach for the upcoming holidays. Yes, she just typed “the holidays”.
Wasn’t it just summer five minutes ago!?
Someone bonk her on the head AND build a time-stopper, slower-downer machine.
A wee little pitcher with delicate fall leaves fell in her cart the last time she was at HomeGoods. It’s just the kind of thing she loves.
A little fix, for a little price!
At $4.99 … who could say no?
With the damn pumpkin being a pretty pale aqua’ish blue… she figured she might as well add some more aqua so she dragged out a few of her most favorite Ball mason jars.
Some of the real oldies too!
Those are the very best.
Everything else was already on-hand.
Buying a lot of white over the years makes it seem like everything matches. She sure is glad she opted for white all those times she couldn’t commit to a color!
Never fancy, always affordable.
Thanks for dropping in today!
I’ll tell “her” you stopped by.
XOXO from the one who will be cleaning-up the avalanche of home decor that crazy girl left in her wake!!
Don’t leave yet!
