Picture me walking around the store with this huge canvas, placing it by different things in the store to see if I still liked it. Yes, I am a little nuts like that.
So, it passed all my little tests and came home with me.
I even got out a level and used two nails to hang it. Sometimes I am a perfectionist. (Like now, when I keep changing my mind about whether or not to put a comma after "sometimes." I found an explanation HERE.)
Back to the canvas, it reminds me of a quiet spot on the lake we live near.
After three years of crossing a bridge over the lake to get home from work, my husband finally stopped saying, "We should get a boat." Now we have a boat. I tolerate the water sports. I like the cold drinks in the ice chest. I am excited that my adult kids come home to ride said boat. Did I mention that we can dock the boat at a Mexican restaurant that has awesome margaritas?
But, I LOVE the times when we get to a quiet spot on the lake and just go slow. Sometimes (comma, no comma, who knows?!) my husband even notices that it is really quiet and turns down the volume on the country music blasting from the speakers.
That is my really happy moment. I love the ducks, the trees, the quiet.
I guess I was just born to enjoy peace, quiet, and nature.
Again, back to my new aquisition. Here it is on a wall that has been waiting for "something."
Now this side of the room feels finished.
On the other side of the room, I also found this beautiful throw in the clearance section of Pottery Barn. But there is something else I want to do to the two IKEA arm chairs. Stay tuned.
