My living room makes furniture placement difficult. I don't have a foyer, so you walk
right into the room. And the only windows are "right there". On the other side of the
windows, there's an angled wall with a fireplace. Previously, I had a little black chair and
my grandma's round vintage table in front of the window.
I kept staring at the window space thinking it needed something more in the middle.
Then it hit me yesterday that what it needed was height. So I grabbed a stool from the
kitchen and placed a big spider plant on it. Much better, I think.
And then I put Grandma's table where the stool used to be.
It's a hot and steamy week here in northern Illinois. In fact, the rain is falling and
thunder booming as I type this. We had our neighbor's mulberry tree trimmed back to
her property line early this morning before the storms came in. Monkey-man got it
all done just in time. And I was able to use the leaf blower to get all the fallen mulberries
(man, those things are messy!) off the patio and move the patio furniture back into place.
So much better. Now all those nasty mulberries won't be falling all over our
patio, plants, roof and gutters. We'd been dealing with that mess for years.
Couldn't even use our patio because it rained tons of mulberries every day ~
and then they'd rot and stink and then the flies would have a field day. Not to mention
how the berries would clog the gutters and start to damage our roof.
Linking up with Cozy Little House Tweak it Tuesday.
