Procrastinating at a High Rate of Speed

I never have fewer than ten or so projects going at once, for I have the attention span of an espresso-addled gnat.

I'd like to claim it keeps me sane...but that would be a lie.
Not to mention that sanity was never the goal in the first place...or an option for that matter.
My mind never sleeps.  I don't even try to fight it anymore.

In between being forced to do things that responsible adults are expected to do I have been attempting to get the house ready for Gracie's annual tea party!

I suppose it might be more effective to concentrate on one task at a time but I am utterly incapable of doing that.
Short of a lobotomy, it isn't going to happen.

I moved the family room back to its original layout.  The problem is, I like it both ways so each time I change it I obsess over whether it was the right thing to do.
I still like it best with no curtains but until we pick the entire house up and move it to a lot with a view the drapes stay.

He never knows where it will be when he gets home.
Men seem to like their sofas stationary.

Vignette in Family Room.

I found a zebra print cowhide on Craigslist!  It was brand new and now the Library smells like the shoe department at Nordstrom! One of the happiest places on planet earth!

The gentleman I bought the rug from has many more.  Let me know if you would like his phone number!  He also sells on ebay!

Here I am creating vignettes when I should be washing dirty breakfast dishes!
The dishes are soaking in the sink so, technically, they aren't dirty.
They aren't even dusty.
Am I the only one who washes dishes before I put them in the dishwasher?

I liked this vignette so much I decided to make it into my blog header!

We removed all the remaining mirror from this gorgeous French screen.  I am waiting on toile fabric from ebay to cover the panels. It will be stunning!

This is a Before of two chairs that I reupholstered in toile for Gracie's playroom!  Stay tuned!

Craigslist! Can you believe it?  Three hundred dollars.
Should I paint it?

Craigslist.  Thirty dollars for the pair!  You can see them in the Dining Room vignette, above.

This is also a Before photo.  I am in the process of painting and recovering them to resemble a Swedish Rococo chair I saw on 1st Dibs!

Inspiration chair

The chair on the left cost $25, the chair on the right $2,500.
I have four.
Note the similar shape.  
I am fairly certain that I will never own a $2,500 chair, let alone a set of four for $10,000!
I am happy with the alternative!

Seven foot tall bird cage.  Craigslist.

I have a ga-jillion more things to share with you but my mind is already twenty steps ahead...

I am off to visit my blog friends before this rare moment of quiet focus recedes...
