Day 197 – Spontaneous Decorating Spurt

For the past three days, I’ve been having issues getting started on decorating our new house. I have a certain style that I love [boho/eclectic/shabby chic] and really, that kind of style can’t be planned in a way because it’s very free. [Hi, my name is Rain, and my purse is a lunch box from the 70s.] So for three days I’ve been throwing furniture out, getting mad, taking it back, throwing more out, and probably being pretty annoying. Luckily, Aldwyn is understanding of my quirks, so he didn’t smack me around or anything.

The plan for the other side of our new little creek is to have it be like a little farm, but I can’t seem to find any good vegetable gardens. We went to a few places tonight to look at some that I’d seen on marketplace, but they weren’t what I really wanted. [Btw, did you know that farming is kind of a thing in the Gorean places? I had no idea!] If ANYONE knows of any places that sell good looking gardens for the ground, please let me know!

After our trek around some stores, we came back and the creative inspiration hit me. Aldwyn called it my spontaneous decorating spurt. Hey, Rain cannot be forced to be creative, you know!

Day 197 - Spontaneous Decorating Spurt

It’s not NEARLY done, and I still have 4 more rooms to decorate, but at least we have a place where we can sit and be comfortable. My goal for tomorrow is to get at least the master bedroom done, and possibly the bathroom. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect kitchen, and I have a few kitchen sets from Funky Junk and The Loft, but I think I might need to really rip something apart and put it together to make it all work the way that I want.

My cat is staring at me, so I guess she’s ready for bed.

Day 114 – The Best Yard!

My friend Emerald is pretty awesome. She’s bright, witty, and the kind of writer I’d like to be one day. She’s also one of the original Bluebonnet residents and has been on the island with me pretty much since I took it over. But the BEST part of being Em’s friend and neighbor?

She totally has the BEST YARD.

Day 114 - The Best Yard

I have absolutely NO idea where she finds half of the things that end up in her yard, but I’m glad she does, because it’s so much fun to look at!!
