Quick Update on Earl

Just a little note to let you guys know that Earl is okay. I think a combination of factors brought on his migraine and then the allergic reaction to the shot was no fun at all! The doctor this morning gave him a shot of morphine and benadryl and sent him home to bed for the day. By tomorrow he should be fine. The episcleritis has him a little freaked out, but it's one of those things that you can't do much about. Just be patient and see what happens...
He's a sweetheart, but he always has to do everything in a big way!

In other news, here are some photos that have been languishing in my camera for over a month!

First, the view down my hallway. Aren't those circles at the end intriguing? I have to admit, I was not a big fan of this look when it started showing up on the blogs, but I really like it in person. Remember the ugly lacy embroidery hoop things from the eighties? Yikes! But these aren't anything like that. They're really graphic and clean and gave me a great way to showcase some of my favorite fabrics.
This is the "bluebird of happiness." Carmen drew and colored this when she was nine and I loved it so much I color copied it. Now I can use it wherever I want. This one is modpodged onto the linen cupboard. In the hallway shot above you can see my cabinet quandry. What color should I paint them? Earl wants to use the brown that we've used on the other doors, but I say it is too dark for such a large expanse. I think we should get the toast (wall) color in a gloss and use that. What do you think?

Lastly, how do you like these "new" coasters? Obviously they are the same fabrics from the hallway, but what I really love here is the "no sew" aspect. I just covered my shabby Dollar Tree coasters and then added a felt backing. Hurray for glue guns!Here they are ready for action:

Okay, now I'm off on my rounds of Bloglandia!

  1. I'm so glad to hear that Earl is doing ok. I don't know what episcleritis is, but being sick is never fun.

    And your circles: love them! Especially the green Boston Tea Party fabric. (How could I not? I love green, and I'm from Boston!) Carmen's bluebird is darling, you have to put it back after you paint the cabinets!

    I'd vote for toast. However, I have this feeling that dark brown might give it a Shaker-kind of look, but I have no idea why. But keep in mind that I've had some really disastrous color choices in my life, so you might not want to listen to me.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
