Whoops! Wrong Cure. It's the Apartment Therapy Spring Cure!! I am soooo in this time. I tried it before in our old house but, dang, that place had sooo much wrong with it...including 7 years of accumulated JUNK.
Now, as you can see by the last post, I am in a new, uncluttered home. The downside is that we have practically NOTHING for furnishings. We weren't able to bring all of our things with us to Wyoming and being a thrifting girl I assumed it wouldn't take long to replenish what was needed. Boy was I wrong. For some reason the prices of "used" home furnishings are CRAZY!! Even the trash! And we are a million miles from any IKEA, Target, or other decent store. I love our new town, really I do, but I can't even find a Domino magazine here. It's all Country Living and Quilting Digest!
So now as Week One is about to begin I am trying to go through the questions in the Apartment Therapy book to determine my Decorating Style which isn't going well. I am to eclectic to catagorize. (That's my way of saying I am a mixed up mess).
John Wayne because he was a man above men. I just love him the way you love a grandpa!
Henri Matisse. I do love the colors
Andrew Wyeth because his work is so haunting
Barbara Michaels/Elizabeth Peters:
5) Music (my most eclectic area)
Rock (KISS, ACDC, The Donnas)
Pop-Rock (Pat Benatar, Blondie)
Jazz/Blues (Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday)

I rarely eat out. But I love retro diners.
