HEADER

I changed my header because I just couldn't stand that snowy picture one more day. I have had it with snow and bad weather and I am way more than ready for spring. When will it be here??? This is New England so it could be a couple of months away, but have I mentioned that I. am. ready??

For Christmas our boys got together and got us a flat screen TV....32" of flat screen TV. I went kicking and screaming into the latest technology ( complete with DVR), and I had to rearrange my Living Room to accommodate the change, but I am finally OK with it. I bought that new russet/brick color wing chair to fill in the corner where the former TV in an old oak Army locker was. No one seemed to understand that I needed height in that corner. Why do men just not get that whole height, scale, visual weight thing? They just laugh hysterically at me. Ahhh...life in the Testosterone Temple.

Later,
Janet

  6. I love your header. What a beautiful room. I gave up trying to explain decorating to my family...I have 3 boys and men like their electronics over flowers *sigh*. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier, and to answer your question, I bought my liquid potpourri at Pat Catan's in the fall but you can probably get it at Michael's and in the past I have seen it at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

  7. LOL! How about when they hang paintings> They are always up around the ceiling! I am always screaming "eye level!!!" Your new header is beautiful! I am so with you on the snow & cold weather. I hope we have a spring this year instead of going from 34-80 in a weeks time! LOL! :) chris
