    Glad the move went well. Don't feel bad about not having anything on the walls. We've been here 5 years in August and only in the past 6 months have we started actually putting nonessentials on the walls (the pan rack and dreamcatchers were up almost a day after we moved in.)

    Thanks Geo and Naiad


    Yeah, I am not big in the whole decorating dept and am definitely more function over form, but I can see K's point about it making the place look better. Plus she wants to start having people over, which makes it more important. Apparently this will require me wearing pants. I hate the idea already.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Hey canio! Glad to hear you back, and glad that the move is over.

    This has not much to do with anything, but we are very slow to put stuff on the walls, too. Mostly because I pitch a fit if hubby does it without me. But I need to explain... You see, hubby has a decorating aesthetic that does not mesh well with mine. His version of picture hanging goes like this - "See blank wall. Grunt. Must hang stuff. Grunt." So he simply hauls out the framed family photos, a cordless drill, a handful of drywall screws, a stud finder thingy, and just starts drilling and hanging until either the photos or the wall space runs out, whichever comes first. No forethought as to placement, or actually using something that would preserve more of the paint/wallpaper job, or even if another wall would be better for some reason.

    I am no interior decorator, but I just like a little more finesse than drywall screws, you know?

    My husband is also horrible at hanging pictures. He thinks that a 1 lb 8x10 frame requires a drywall screw/anchor assembly, when a small nail would suffice. Now, if I want to move pictures around, I have huge gaping holes where the screws used to be instead of tiny holes from little nails that I can fill with a quick swipe of a finger and a dollop of toothpaste. His holes require freaking drywall screen and spackle!!

    My husband works maintenance in a factory. He's always overcompensating with his fixes to fend off the idiots a bit before they break the machines again. Apparently, he thinks this mentality is also required at home. But, he won't let me put chainlink around my garden to keep out the animals. Go figure.

    Dunno' where mine got his sensibilities - he has a degree in chemistry, and currently writes computer programs for the environmental industry when he isn't managing enviro projects for his company. Seat-bound brainiac, he mostly is.

    Mine won't let me get a used semi rim for our fire pit. He thinks it looks trashy. Do you know where I live?!?! Most folks places out here are a cross between a junkyard, trash dump, used mobile home lot, and open toxic waste field. And - our firepit sits out of sight of anything and everything behind our rural, woods-bound house. Harrumph. He once got me a dainty little metal fire ring with cute cutouts of moons and stars in it. I had it reduced to rust in no time, just from the heat I produce back there. And yes, he likes a hefty fire, too.

    Oh, I am the wall-hanging master. I just do not see the point of putting things on a wall. That said, the point very well might end up being keeping the wife happy, which is the point of having a wife afterall.
