Mr. Snooty might not agree, but I MUST HAVE THESE for Christmas. These amazing ski goggles are equipped with a camera, with which to take videos while skiing. Obviously, these ski goggles would be great for countless hours of laughs as everyone gets to ski with me, hear me curse, fall with me (wait. I don't fall, I crash), hear me trying to talk on the lift ride (or trying not to talk on the lift ride) as well as getting on and off the lift with me and countless unknown
I apologize for not being around of late. I've been redecorating SD's bedroom only it's not to the point that I can actually call it *decorating* YET. Her room is so small that I had to call and apologize to her after shopping for a new bed. SD replied, "Thanks. I'm tired of sleeping in the fetal position when I come home." How could we have been such awful parents? Our son's room is enormous, as is his bathroom. You can barely turn around in SD's bathroom. It's. That. Small. She never once complained while growing up. Anyway, I sold her day/trundle bed (with 8 sets of sheets & pillowcases, a comforter & 2 shams) for $200.00 on Craig's List, to make way for the new bed.
As it turned out, the queen sleigh bed would have only allowed her 6" of walking room. Anyway, it took me a while but I finally figured out that the new iron sleigh bed with pillow-top mattress will fit in the guest room and my great-grandmother's four poster bed (from the guest room) will fit in SD's room. When we move (if we ever move), the new bed will go in SD's room then. I took a couple of pictures at the furniture store but they are sketchy, at best.
Did I mention that it takes 4 to 6 weeks to get the bed ordered and in my home? Back when we originally bought our furniture (34 years ago), you could buy furniture and have it delivered that very day. Go. Figure. I can't believe it has to be ordered now.
I've also bought some more hideous pieces of furniture from our local Goodwill, that I hope to transform into something gorgeous. I just finished sanding this little table yesterday & got it primed last night. I'm hoping to get it finished today, in a red. I'll show how it turns out when I'm finished.
The painter will start on SD's room next week and I'm having him do it in a taupe with white molding. I'm desperately trying to get her old room finished before Thanksgiving, when she'll be home for several days....
It's been hard trying to blend new pieces with the old stuff we're getting rid of, while keeping a vision of what I want for the new place in my future but I'm certainly trying to keep perspective. I'm also trying to make the new blend with the old so that it will look good while the house is being shown to prospective buyers. It seems to be an uphill battle and I'm not sure who is winning.
I can't wait to get started on this pair of side tables from the 70's...
