well obviously i am talking about the boston marathon explosions. but also my white walls- more on that in a minute.
when i heard an 8 yo boy was killed it was all i could do to not come undone and go on a killing spree myself.
if you haven't read patton oswald's take on it (if you are glued to facebook like the douchebag you are then you've seen it) (points finger at self) please read it. it's a good lesson to take away from all of this murdery sadness.
i want to let my boston readers know that i am thinking of them and if there's anything i can do please let me know.
moving on in topic (not in importance)...
i began painting my living room BM simply white.
side note- these pics are dark bc yesteday was gloomy and overcast.
the color is perfect though.
exactly what i wanted.
H O W E V E R...
my trim is decidedly gray in comparison.
tobe warned me and i didn't listen.
so now i have to paint it all.
and that makes me sufficiently stabby.
i always knew i was going to paint the baseboards and even the windows.
but not the molding at the top.
oh sweet jesus.
it was soul crushing as i lay on my couch looking up and snapping pics on my phone.
laughing on the outside.
crying on the inside.
but those tables up there are new and i got them for a song.
A SONG I TELL YOU!
they are one of a kind blue denim-y looking lacquer.
made for the queen or some such craziness and there is no other pair in the world like them.
in that photo they look like a damn ikea lack table.
but they are bigger and heavier and denim-y-er.
i will take better pics when the room is done and styled up all pretty.
and those lamps are going.
i've had them for years and i love them but they are not right for this room.
instead i purchased 2 70's brass moroccan lamps on ebay for a song.
A SONG I TELL YOU!
i didn't want a pair of lamps bc i have a pair of tables.
i wanted tall, mid century and brass.
similar but different.
same height, same feel but different shapes.
they are the exact same height from the bottom to the top of the harp.
and i scored them for so cheap i can't even tell you bc you will explode.
pretty awesome right?
boston...we love you.
everyone...keep your heads up.
hug your babies and have some wine and celebrate your life.
