Friday we ran out to pick up the new-to-us furniture. It's...well. It's MUCH nicer than the pictures on CraigsList showed; I was thinking it was simply 2 plain display units with a shelf. What it actually IS, is 2 French Provencial (or thereabouts) display units, with pawed feet and beveled and curved glass (the units are sort of trapezoidal. Hard to explain!) and wood shelves, and the shelf on top has fancy-smancy iron filigree. It's.....Oh goodness, it's GORGEOUS. And totally over-the-top. And ALL my to-keep books FIT in the shelves, behind the doors!!!!!!
We have all our SciFi collectibles on the shelf, with Yoda on the very top (many, many Yodas. I....kinda like the little green guy! :lol:) I'll get a few pictures when we get the artwork on the walls - right now, the art is on the piano and it looks bad. The room itself is nice and relatively tidy (but...cluttered, because I have NO place for my wheels to live. :sigh: The studio is on my list, after the Master Bedroom.)
As of right now, the public areas of the house are nice and tidy. I just have the studio and Master bedroom to go...and I'm only doing half the master bedroom. Why? Because my husband keeps saying "WE" need to clean it...only by "we" he means "ME"...and I'm tired of being the only one who cleans. He complains about the mess all the time, but won't help - well, he "helps", if by "helps" you understand it to mean "makes a bigger mess, gets tired and leaves it all until *I* get fed up and clean it up". Yeah - not happening this time. I'll clean my half - which includes the bathroom and closet - and he can do HIS half. Or not. His call.
Anyway - I need to start on MY half, then go get hay. And finish school. Laters! :lol:
