I wish I could tell you that if you want to see this cabinet you should go to our space at Blue Door to see it however, I put it there a few days ago and it has already sold. I think was are on to something and very excited about the current work going on in the workshop.
We also purchased this Rachell Ashwell -Shabby Chic Interiors book this past week. Rachell Ashwell has been around for awhile and has often been credited with starting the trend of painting furniture white but this book shows some use of very soft colors which is very interesting. We loved her very simple vintage themes in this book. So if you get a chance check this out.
Over the last few years we have struggled to make a living in this new economy of ours. We found a few years ago that we just needed to stop watching the nightly news. We just didn't need more bad news and have looked for way to feed positive thoughts and ideas into our lives. In so doing we have noticed that there is a lot of negative in our culture. There are people on the radio and TV that seem to make a whole living out of being negative and angry. Imagine how we could change our world if we all decided to assume the best of others and not the worst.
We had a friend of ours the other day who was sheduled to go on a hike with a group of friends. They decided to stop for lunch first and during the lunch the conversation took a very negative turn. It seemed the conversation took a very negative turn into politics and than into bashing overweight people. Our friend excused herself from lunch and just left. This year we are getting alot of negative political messages already. So much email seems to assume the worst that is political in nature and most people don't even seem interested in making sure they have their facts right. A few years ago I remember hearing a motivational speaker talk about stinking thinking. Maybe we need to start with getting some of that stinking thinking out of our own lives and call it when we see it in our lives and around us. What if we could all turn are thoughts each day into creating things that inspire people, think of what a different world we would have. So today create something beautiful for yourself or those around you, even if it is just a positive thought. There is plenty about life that is good, so embrace it and encourage it in others.
