It's about time....

OK...part 3 of  mart is still delayed so that I can bring you this info.
Today I am finally [6 months later] getting this put up.

Oh...don't get me wrong.  I actually ordered the paper and have had it.  But then I couldn't decide if I wanted to do it...do I want to paint the room a lighter color [the backgound of the paper] do I want to put it on the ceiling...blaa...blaa...blaa....so there it sat in a closet for 6 months.  Then right before my little Christmas party on the 23rd [like 2 days before] I called my paper girl and blazingly asked if she could come put it up before the party.  I literally had to hold the phone out the window cause her mean and callous laugh shook me to the core.  What....for real...what is the big deal.  Oh...I see...your are very busy with people who actually booked ahead of time.  Humbly hang up phone and pouted for at least a minute.  Moved on.....I'm simple like that.  No grudge holding for me :)

On to today.  Here are the words I said to propel me forward....you can always paint the room after.  If you don't like it change it.   That is what designers say to themselves...not to clients.  Clients:  Timeless....you'll love it.....your friends will be envious.....please pick this one because it is MY favorite and I want to see it up.  And other stuff.  If any of my clients are reading this...not you....older clients from way back.

Another thing I am excited about...how did this post become about: me  me  me  me!
I ordered a new camera: The Canon G12.



I really thought about this.  Ok obsessed.  Ok stalked.  But I wanted something that was still easy to carry and the thought of trying to figure out how to use one of those honking big cameras with lens and lots of buttons will throw me into a tailspin.  Directions, lessons...and just another dang obsession.  Not now please.

If you remember today is new haircut day.  Hope I don't end up like this.....

It is a rainy Tuesday here in the ATL.

Pin It!

Oh, good, you got your camera. I can never seem to commit to wallpaper although I love it dearly (see my powder room paint post)! So, I feel your pain. Can't wait to hear about your haircut!

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

You are too funny! Love the reasoning between designers and clients :)

Lissa @ After Adornment said...

Too many choices! I love the idea of putting it on the ceiling...like being under the trees.
I also just got a new camera. One with the lense and all the buttons and stuff....it's hard, but I'll get it someday!

can't wait to see up. You are on of the only ones that can make me actually laugh out loud.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

I could have helped you out with the wallpaper hanging...used to do it as a sideline back in the day when it was all the rage! A girlfriend and I had a little busines...Covergirls...get it? Cover (as in the wall) girls...I know it was a long time ago!

New haircut! Can't wait to see it!

I have always loved that paper! And it will look fabulous. I had to laugh about calling the paper girl, b/c I am the same way, when I decide to do something...I want it done NOW, lest I change my mind, again! And congrats on the camera, I am sure you will love it.

Julie Holloway said...

you'll have to tell me if you love that camera. I just bought a little one at Target because I can never figure out the big honkin' one.

Hi Sherry, You always leave such nice comments on my blog that I popped over here to check yours out. OMgoodness! You are unbelievably talented. I looked at your website as well. Incredible. I'm now a follower! :)

SuzyMcQ said...

Hi Sherry, I just found your blog and you are amazing! i read tons of decorating blogs and, well, I just love yours and enjoy that you are so honest and down to earth and a fantastic decorator.

I used to work for Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma Home and you are so good at giving your rooms an expensive look at a reasonable price. They don't look "decorated," they look genuine and clean and crisp.

I am so looking forward to following your blog to see what you come up with next.

Wonderful camera choice! I can't wait to see your shots taken from it. Have a lovely day, Kellie xx

Ok. I'm waiting for the gorgeous haircut photo. :-) You're so brave to wallpaper. I love seeing it but, quite honestly, just don't think I could bring myself to do it (maybe one of those temporary wallpapers they have now?). Your comments about what you say to clients cracked me up.

Val said...

Congrats on the camera!!! You deserve it!!!! Can't wait to see the new hair style!!

I need a dose of you every morning to make me smile. Love the wallpaper!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Seriously, you would think getting a haircut is like going to the dentist because I *dread* it...it just always feels like you never know what you're going to get! But the wallpaper looks FABULOUS! Can't wait to see it up!

You crack me up. I was laughing out loud. I say to clients "Just live with it for a while." I'm getting my hair done tomorrow and it is way over due.
