A SMALL INSTALL




Taps on the microphone....hopefully some of you are still out there:)  

I know....I often wonder why I can't get my post written in a timely manner anymore.  I hesitate to say this because my family and friends will be all crazy and start calling.....but....I do think it is mild depression.  In fact I think I have mentioned it before but it really does affect my work and just day to day living. 

Take procrastination and multiply it by 10....everything seems to take so much effort and I can easily ignore things which is not good when people have hired you to get it done!

Ever since my sister died last summer [it is coming up on a year] I have felt this way.  I can say it comes and goes and I know time can help but as I say...."one day at a time"....

The exciting news is that I did get a small install done!  Yay....alert the press!

It is my "modern glam" client and I have to say I am proud of how this one is coming along!

On my last post I showed you a few updates....and this one will reflect the bookcases and pillows along with a few other accessories!


Here is the before....when she bought the place.  This was the previous owners things.  She wanted to rip down the shelves but I talked her into painting them because I knew she would like them better....and guess what....I was right:)  

Pats self on the back!



Here is what the sectional and bookcases looked like before we started!


I did have a little "chat" with her before I started buying things.  She wanted a lot of picture frames of her family and equestrian objects.  I persuaded her to let me do a gallery wall of family pictures in the hallway and I said yes....I would mix in some "horsey stuff".  BUT....I was not going to make it a "theme"!

We came to a good place and Rose and I got started shopping.  [Rose is the best].



We are still waiting for a fixture to replace the fan.... but I am so happy with how they turned out!


Really most was thrifted except for the white jar at the top!



Man I love doing shelves!  And the pillows really came together on the sectional.  Waiting for the curtains to arrive which should happen in the next 2 weeks!




There is also a chair coming in the above empty space which has been shipped!  Hallelujah....
 



The bedroom is coming along but still working on a few things!



How I made myself sit down and do this is a small miracle...but baby steps right!  

Oh yeah I had so much fun hanging out with Mary Ann from 
Classic Casual Home and Kim from Northern California Style Thursday and Friday night.  They were in town for a DIY conference and we went to dinner!

You should read both of their blogs....so much good stuff!

You guys have a great Sunday and hopefully I can get everything I need to get done next week....finished!

Love your work as always! I believe a lot of women in our age group feel a little depressed whether it be due to a bad marriage, loneliness or bereavement. We seem to get over one issue then another hits us in the face. So long as we keep putting one foot in front of the other it doesn’t matter how long it takes. Sending much love from Australia.

Very familiar with grief driven depression. Hope you are feeling your best self as soon as you can.

Always love your posts. Thank you for the latest update. You work wonders even with the supply chain problems.
Hope your sadness lessens with time. Many people cheering you on both at home and in the blog universe. Lots of hugs from SF.

Beautiful work!

I always get excited when I see you in my inbox. Install looks gorgeous, can’t wait to see the finished product! You have been through so much the last few years, it’s no surprise you might be feeling depressed. It’s ok to take your time to feel sad. We’re all different and handle grief in different ways. If it gets to the point where it seems overwhelming you might seek professional help. Maybe some sort of grief counselor, or perhaps a therapist. I know this is not an original thought, just want you to consider the idea of leaning on someone else if need be. You’re a strong woman, but it’s ok to ask for help.

Looks great, I love everything you do and always look forward to your posts! It's so devastating losing someone so close, I'm so sorry you are grieving and will pray for you. Sending much love!

That bookshelf transformation is phenomenal!

Jenn Collins said...

Beautiful work as always!! Depression is so damn sneaky - I totally understand how it feels to all of a sudden look around and realize I've been kinda checked-out. Be gentle with your self <3

Sherry, there are 7 stages to grieving. You have experienced multiple losses and your 7 stages are over lapping. It’s a lot. You are a wonderful woman and I send prayers your way when we don’t hear from you. Hugs.

You know, I had three very close people die close together and I felt like I was never going to get out of the funk, when finally I just said: "you have to choose to be happy, I choose to be happy" out loud and it really helped. Maybe it could help for you?

This year has been my hardest ever. Hubby passed in January, two friends in June, mom broke her hip on her 96th birthday and I am immobilized in the Texas Medical Center after breaking my right femur. I was on my way to help nurse my mom. 2022 is definitely not my best. BUT your blog is one of my not so guilty pleasures. Please keep sending us snippets of your hectic life. That bed and bedding are gorgeous.

Sending you all the hugs! Love this room!

Grieving, me thinks. Love you but not in a weird stalky way.
