Comparing



I opened blogger in a different window/tab so I could write a post. I decided to try the updated blogger interface. uh, oh! That might have been a mistake as I'm back in the first window/tab and I'll be definitely comparing things. And if I am missing for a bit it'll be due to technical difficulties! yikes! I gather that ready or not, a change in Blogger is definitely coming.





I started off this morning with a quick Internet check then right into laundry. I grabbed the vacuum and started to clean. I am so happy to find like minded people in the blog world. Some of my acquaintances feel too much changing around is the sign of a frustrated female. :( But I've found kindred spirits who feel if you need to move it to clean it then have a happy time rearranging things. I like that! 8)

So I shoved the chairs around in the sitting room and the table and then I pushed the brown wood-look bookcase from the kitchen into the sitting room. It used to live there and seems happy to be out of the heat and steam and back to calm repose. I'm definitely going to change that blah door to a glass paned one. I'll need to have frosted or painted glass but I've never changed my desire to have that glass door.

The old china cabinet enticed the fridge to move up and over a bit and hunkered down to her new command position in the doorway. Much better than always having the bathroom door blocking her view. I'm beginning to really like painted furniture. I'll keep my wood floors and a few table tops but I'm thinking I'll be painting everything else. The trim will be an antique white because I've learned with this white/white china cabinet that mellow is better. I will be changing up the innards of the cabinet and bookcase but tomorrow. I'm not procrastinating I'm trying to stick to the schedule. I am supposed to be machine quilting in the afternoon and preparing for the new challenge at quilt group tonight.



While I'm quilting away I'll be entertaining a few more push, shove moves and then I'll be comparing all the what if's ...



And just because...


here is the grand kiddie comparing the view from a little higher up and a lot closer in! Fuzziness, grape juice mustache and droopy jammas, not withstanding! ;^)

I like painted furniture, too....now if I could just find someone to paint it! haha I really like your china cabinet white, it looks so crisp and clean. Careful with the heavy lifting!

when I do get around to vacuuming, it does often result in a rearrangement of furniture! Probably doesn't happen as often as it should though!
Your gate leg/drop leaf table sitting by the doorway looks to be identical to the one I'm using for my sewing table. I love that it has two good size leaves, and the butterfly leaf in the middle - accommodates a lot of quilt!

Rearranging furniture is what I feel is my reward for cleaning! And fresh opportunities to redecorate with flowers, or quilts! Love being like minded with you! Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Xo

I always enjoy your moving things around as I am not able to do so...Mr. C has everything exactly where he wants it and there is no moving anything. My Grandma always changed things up and I liked that. Your little one is adorable just as she is right there at the kitchen sink!

I also like to move things around, especially on hardwood floors. But moving heavy furniture on carpeting is a bit of a challenge. I move where I can, but mostly I change my accent pieces, decorations, and wall art. Love watching what you do, though.
