~Happy Thursday...And A Proposition!!~


Good evening ladies!! I hope you all are having a wonderful Thursday. I am SOOO glad it is Friday tomorrow. Not only for the most obvious reason of no work, but that I a super excited!! I decided after reading all our your encouraging words that I am just going to bite the bullet and start spreading some of my Prim goodness all over the house this weekend. And I can't wait to get started.

What can it hurt. Like you all said, if I place something on a certain shelf, etc. who's saying it has to stay there right!?!? That's how the word "tweaking" was invented, wasn't it?!?!? Due to a woman changing her mind...LOL!!

I am not sure if you all remember me posting about a shelf that "Big Daddy" had made for me that I was too scared to paint. Well, guess what!?!? Yep, it is also another victim of my lack of decorating confidence. So, I decided that it was going to be my first project that I take on this weekend. Not only for the obvious reason that I need the shelf to display some of the Prim goodness that has taking up residency on my kitchen counter and closet but also for that fact that I think it has really hurt "Big Daddy's" feelings that I have yet done anything with his awesome creation!! So, wish me luck ladies!! I am gonna need it!! LOL!!

But before I close up for the night...I have a proposition for you all. I know that one way that I get inspiration is by looking at all of you beautiful homes and they way you all display things. So, here's what I was thinking...what about starting a weekly tour of homes Maybe we could call it "Tour My Home Thursday" or something like that. Where we would assign a certain room of the house each week. I know that most of you have posted pics of your homes in the past but this would be place where we could compile all of those in one spot. Making it easier for us "decorating challenged" to get our inspiration.

I know that I saw something similar over on another blog. However, most of the homes participating in that tour all had different decorating styles. Not that anybody wouldn't be welcome to participate no matter what your decorating style was...but most of us seem to have similar styles and in my opinion it is always nice to get some fresh ideas. Especially for us who have wonderful things just taking up good counter space and not being truly appreciated in the Prim glory!! LOL!!

So, if you all think you would like to participate and would be willing to spread the word and see if we can get others to join...maybe it would be fun!! Whatcha' think!?!?!? Does this sound like something you all would like to do?
