    A thousand year old body would be awesome! Certainly better than a body dead only a few years. (Insert Home Alone "scream face" here.)

    I suck at decorating, so the best I can do is tell you an error to avoid. Don't rush. Whether you're into new things or found things or antiques, search until you find the piece on which to build the room. Because if you don't wait, you'll see it on craigslist about 48 hours after you've settled for a lesser choice.

    A 150 pound concrete Buddha for a garden is only a good choice if you're never going to move again.

    That's all I've got. I don't like matchy matchy for me, so I can never just go in and buy a whole set of anything, and I've made enough errors that stared me in the face far too long that I'm often on the fence about a piece until someone else buys it. I suck at decorating.

    I agree about don't rush BO. My Mum and Dad have built and decorated quite a few homes over the years. They have done teal doors, yellow doors, you name it they have tried it - however now after all the many experiences that they have had - they will say paint all your walls an off white or quiet bland/neutral colour, and then use all sorts of amazing colours to dress up the rooms. ie black bed covers, or red towels, different coloured throw over the couch, amazing things on the walls.
    In my new wee cave we have sort of done the same, and am loving being able to change a room with a bedcover. I certainly can't afford to buy things regularly but can change the guest bedroom, or my bedroom with the old swapsies.
    I really do agree with Joanie thou - don't rush, and if you get the chance, if you are out shopping or visiting - take pickies of what YOU like !!!!!!

    hi baby *squish*

    i took the pics from the front door, what isn't seen is the ceiling fan w/light. it was too bright for my mood and i don't have lamps set up yet so i turned the far light on. the brick and open space extends up about 3.5 feet to the side from the door

    i found a big dragon skull garden decoration, it's sooo cooo but now i'm tempted by the thought of a 150 lb buddha just because it's the epitome of contrary and stubborn

    but these are kinda my design leanings, country antiques and jewel tones. i friggen love antiques. maybe i'm weird but older things feel more real to me

    pinterest and camera will be ready at a moment's notice *nod*

    but if my brain completely explodes from indecision, i can put my antiques on one table and red pillows on another then just sit and drool from explodey brains

    and i can't find an adequate gif/pic/video to use as a spacer. the internets has failed me tonight.

    i bought dog food, a magazine and nail polish tonight. of the 3, only the polish will do me any good because the magazine is a women's throw weights around magazine. i am grudgingly and hesitatingly beginning to accept that i have limitations

    and it is an ugly thing to accept

    i do not want limitations, but sitting in the car in the dark in the drive crying.. well.. i guess that i have limitations

    because the physical activities i've been partaking in along with the rainy weather have completely destroyed my torso

    i am a strongass woman, dammit. i do not cry in the car in the dark to a country music soundtrack.

    in my mind i can tear down old walls and put up new walls and create a giant beautiful flower paradise while squatting 100lbs, no problem

    in reality.. i think i might be crippled. maybe. a little. maybe.

    or maybe i just need a nap and a pill or 3, i don't know yet

    but i did pick up some extra sleepy valerians, 2 bag steep coming up
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Ehhh, crying to a C&W soundtrack? They are tear-jerkers, a good many of them. Crying doesn't make one weak.... lying on your back, giving up, and peeing on yourself? Thats a different story. Keep up the fight. You only lose the war by quitting the fight. Now buck up little camper!

    If you want I can do a mean R. Lee Ermie immitation if you prefer.....

    Oh, you know what you get when you play a country song backwards? You get your dog back, your house back, and your ex-wife/husband back....
