172: orna-mental

Oh yeah, here is another corner of our kitchen:

Do you  recognize that pink tin on the right? 

Sometimes people ask, "What the hell do you do with all that crap you buy?" 

Well, here is what I did with those vintage Christmas ornaments I got a few weeks ago:

They now live on top of the fridge. I love them because they aren't all the usual red and green.

Ok, fine, in this shot there is red and green, but overall, there is more pink, champagne and shades of blue.

See me peeking at you from the left corner?

So, friends,  my heart has been heavy lately. It's not all cute kitchens and estate sale scores around here.
After a few weeks of sinking toward the abyss, I am starting to bob to to the top again. Ah, buoyancy, why don't you come to me sooner?

I am trying to make myself feel better. It sounds corny, but I am trying to learn to be my own best friend right now. This week I have been eating better, and doing a bit of running, and in a few moments I am leaving to go to my first yoga class in two weeks. Yay, me.

I wish you all lived right here on the Cape and we could get together and make stuff and listen to music and be silly together. I know I have said it a bunch of times, but - truly, your comments and encouragement  mean so much.
