I crave change. Being close to spring and feeling the nesting instinct take hold makes me feel it even stronger. For years, about the time the flowers started to bloom, I would feel the urge to put a for sale sign in the yard and head out on a new adventure. Now I make do with mixing things up in the house and making it feel new to me. I love buying things that can be used in different ways and places. These new pillows found a home on the daybed in my studio for now and work perfectly to make this a cozy spot for pouring over old gardening magazines and daydreaming about spring. One day they might show up in the family room, foyer or master bedroom. I have a lot of pieces that get moved from room to room. To me, the more flexibility a piece has, the more value it has.
Another part of being flexible for me, is rolling with the punches. There have been a lot of life punches thrown around here lately. One of them is that due to the housing market right now, it is not feasible for us to finish our basement. We were initially disappointed but realize everything happens for a reason. We will get it done one day. This gives us the opportunity to focus on the rest of the house and finish up old projects before we start new ones. There could be worse things.
