Long Time No See, Gold Top and House Projects

 Long Time No See!

Hello friends! So sorry it has been such a long time since you heard from me. There just hasn't been a whole lot of blogging going on around here! I have good excuses, though. We started on some house projects which have taken up a lot of our time and, along with that, I have been suffering from a spell of "writer's block." Sometimes, I just can't think of anything to write about that I feel would be of interest to any of you! As you can see, Cassie has been assisting with the house projects. But, unfortunately, not with writing blog posts! Guess she has had writer's block too!

And Garden has been assisting with house projects, as well. What would we do without the help of these two furry assistants!

As you can see, "my room" has been emptied out. A few weeks ago I decided to update the room a bit. That led to The Mr. asking me if I would like for him to repaint the room for me. I decided that would be a good idea. Then, The Mr. decided that the whole room should be emptied for easier painting. Oh my goodness, how is it that a "small project" turns into a BIG project all of a sudden!! So, after emptying everything out, I have been going through "stuff" trying to decide what to keep, what to give away, what to throw get the picture. And that takes so much time and energy! We also decided to get rid of the green sleeper sofa which was in this room and I picked out a new chair! I can't wait to do "before" and "after" pictures for the blog. That will be just a little while though as I am still working on putting things back in the room. I also want to pick out a new rug and get curtain toppers back up. It's exciting to do a room redo but also hard work! Thank goodness for the help of two cats 😉!!

In the meantime, I thought I would share this pretty gold peasant style top with you. I'm not sharing it with you to brag about a new top but, rather, to talk about the color. Gold is not considered one of "my colors" as I am supposedly a "muted summer" for clothing colors. So colors like pinks, purples and blues look best next to my face. However, when I saw this top I really liked it and when I bought it and tried it on I liked it even better! The style and flowers just lifted my spirits. I like the ruffles on the shoulders, also. Very feminine.

So, here's my point in sharing this top. Sometimes, we just need to break the rules when we find an article of clothing we like. It doesn't matter if it isn't on our color pallette or our usual style or whatever. If you like it and enjoy wearing it then, for goodness sakes, just wear it and enjoy it! There are too many rules with fashion and trends and I am looking through my closet for clothing and colors I like. We truly know ourselves best, don't we?

I hope that each of you is doing well and that you have enjoyed February as much as possible! I promise to be back later this week with another new post for you!

Until Next Time,

It's always exciting to redo or refresh a room, but it's also a lot of hard work. I'm eager to see your before and after pictures of your room. I always love seeing pictures of Cassie and Garden as well as hearing what they're up to. And I really like your new gold top. I think the color is very nice on you. I don't usually wear a lot of brown, but I just ordered a top on sale that has some brown in it. We'll see what it looks like "in-person" when it arrives. As I get older, I find myself branching out with clothing colors. Just like you, I'm not following all those rules so much anymore.

Well, it's good to see you back to the blogging world. I sure hear you about writers block! I really try to post weekly - and that doesn't sound like much, but there's not much in my world these days.

I love that you're redoing the room, cant wait to see the before and after photos. And, of course, it's wonderful you had such good helpers.

As for the top - I LOVE it. That's one of my favorite colors and I like the style too. May have to go looking for something similar.
