Ever try to "force" something to work in your decorating? You know what I'm talkin' about. There is always one thing that keeps reappearing - the "Piece de Resistance" if you will (you have to use a French accent when you read that......go read it again with the accent this time). Every now and then you pull it out, telling yourself you finally found the perfect spot for it - on a shelf, under a table, on the boo-fay (I put the French accent in for you that time. What? I had to, you cheated last time). And if it were any other piece o junk you had lyin around it would be easy to just get rid of it. "I'll just sell it at my next yardsale" I tell The Man. "Didn't you just get that at a yardsale?" he replies. YES! That's not the point.
But the P d R is different, it's special. It belongs here, in my home, til death do us part. But where, where, WHERE??? The Powder Room? Just wouldn't seem right to stick my P d R next to a toilet. The Foy-ay (getting old?)??? P d R's color doesn't match the walls. The Kitchen? If I put it on the table, my kids might knock it over, on the island I'd have to keep moving it out of the way. You see my dilemma.
And from what I can see, it's a pretty common dilemma. I've heard some of you refer to it as "tweaking". Marty of A Stroll Through Life calls it "Decorator's Block". What do YOU call it? I'm not trying to "force" the issue, I just wanna know.
Here is a picture of my P d R of the week.
We first met at a yardsale a couple weeks ago and I immediately recognized her from the pages of Southern Living at Home. It was love at first sight and only $2. Suh-Weet!!! As of today, at 4 o'clock Easter Time, I've forced her on top of my fridge. By the time I sit down to watch Grey's Anatomy tonight, it's anybody's guess. Maybe the coffee table, but that's round and she's rectangular..............
