Some of you have probably seen another picture like this that I took a few months ago, but I thought I would take another as I was snapping photos around the room.
That wall across the room is screaming for a picture. It is so obviously bare, like a beacon flashing at me. Hey, how'd those clothes of Steve's get in the picture? Oh yeah, because I moved them from the spot they had been when I was trying to take an earlier picture - they're kind of like a fixture...piles of clothes (Steve's that is...see, I like to keep my piles of clothes discretely hidden from view in my closet with the door shut). It seems my strategic attempts at getting the clothes out of the way ultimately failed when I had moved them so many times that I ended up forgetting about them. That's what I get for trying to pretend that we don't have messes - hah!
Do you see that little matchbox on the left - with the drawing of a woman's face, and a little hat and veil? Isn't she cute - it's old, was my grandmother's. In the box with the lid and the open box with dividers, I have many handkerchiefs of my grandmother's and great grandmother's. I really enjoy the different patterns, colors, and embroidery. Can't even imagine blowing my nose on them...yuck...and then stuffing in my purse...double yuck...but perhaps a slight daubing of a glistening eye at a wedding - that wouldn't be as bad. The "Mother" pin was made by Evy for Mother's Day this year. To the left is my new Annick Goutal 'Le Chevrefeuille' perfume, which was recommended to me by Sophie. I REALLY like it and reminds me a bit of my Kate Spade perfume that I love so much.
Why hello there kitty, aren't you cute perched atop my chair. He's only slightly amused by me. His name is K.C. There's that naked wall again - staring at me. I guess it wouldn't be as fun if every single wall and space was crammed full - at least this way I have a specific space in mind when I'm antiquing - it's more than justifiable if there is a space waiting to be filled - am I right...AM I RIGHT PEOPLE!? So we're all on the same page with that I see - wink wink ;o)
