Never, I repeat, never listen to me when I go off on a rant. I recently defamed Martha and now I have to eat crow. I don’t even like fall crow. It taste slightly stale.
I just couldn’t help adding a little ‘fall’ into my decor. There’s nothing better than pumpkins and gourds and apple pies baking in the oven.
Nothing says I love life more than a white pumpkin with spider webs painted on it.
Despite the plastic skeleton hanging on my porch, I like subtle uses of color and nature to mark the change of seasons.
The spirit of the modern woman has been reunited with my inner Martha.
This is my late in the day, uncombed hair several of you asked to see. Should I cut?
I look displeased because I’m not good at taking pictures in the mirror. I cut half of my head out three times.
Please excuse the box that’s sitting on my bedroom floor marked ‘kitchen’…and the unpainted ceiling…and the pile FringeMan’s clothes on the dresser. Martha hasn’t made it to my second floor yet.
I also owe my mother an apology and it’s worse than eating Martha’s crow.
I publicly mocked her for suggesting I sew a blue pearlized octopus costume for my daughter to wear on Halloween, and I may have said something unkind about sew & stitch mothers and obsessive compulsive overachievers.
Yesterday I took it all back in one divinely inspiring moment of craftiness. I made curtains out of drop cloths.
It all started one summer day when I was painting the living room and suddenly crashed into my paint can. As thick white paint oozed all over my drop cloth, I was struck with what a fabulous curtain it could make. When I found out that each drop cloth was under seven dollars, I knew that one day they would be hanging on my windows.
My neighbors are going to need to get their cable reconnected now. No more watching the FringeFamily at primetime.
This morning I created a loom and I’m weaving a scarf.
I think Martha has taken over. She must be restrained before I start knitting socks.
The loom is really Nina’s fault. It was all her idea!
Have you connected with your inner Martha lately?
