While listening to Anthony, I lovingly applied hot pink to my little bookcase. And painted a canvas to match.
Sexy. Still grooving to Anthony, waiting for the paint to dry, I organized the closet.
And rearranged the furniture. Organizing is always difficult, because some of my favorite pieces get put away. I don't want clutter.
Stuff can be such a burden. I have too much, even though I try to continually pare down. I have a rule, nothing new comes in, unless something old goes out. And I never put things in storage. If you are putting stuff in storage, you don't need it and should get rid of it. Here's some of the stuff I got rid of. As I put it on the curb, I thank it for serving me. And I trust someone who can use it will take it. Stuff should not be hoarded, it's meant to be dynamic and flowing.
I picked up the lamp I had been thinking about at Target. I was uncertain of this purchase. I worried that I wouldn't like it when I got home. Now I adore it. Has several light settings and casts a beautiful glow.
I got rid of my Noguchi-rip off, rice paper lamp. The dust from the renovation project ruined it.
Saturday I went to the vintage store intending to buy this lamp.
I adore it's organic nature. It's from Norway and I believe made of teak. When I got to the store, I found there was actually a pair of lamps and the owner wanted $129.00 for the set. I hemmed and hawed. I didn't want to spend that kind of money and I only needed one. After much consternation, I put the lamps in lay-away. My readers know I do everything on the cheap, so this is one of the most expensive purchases I have ever made. However, I really look forward to picking them up.
I couldn't wait until next month for something pretty, though, so I bought this really cute blue bottle (the one to the right, had the other two). Not sure why, but I gotta thing for blue bottles.
I'll show you what my apartment currently looks like in my next post. Wish I could have Anthony Hamilton over for tea. And wouldn't you know it? He was in Cleveland Friday! Damn.
