The past few months have been adventurous. Many moments have been an unfurling of Lotus petals. Almost as if I were revisiting situations where I haven't quite "gotten it right" (or majorly gotten it wrong) and being given the opportunity to approach situations with a new, more accepting and open posture...not unlike this beautiful Lotus blossom coming into bloom.....moving from holding on waaaaaay toooooooo tight.......
To this blossom......
There's a sense of completion--not that this has all been easy (actually it's been kind of yucky), but definitely a time of preparation. I'm not quite sure what doors are opening. But this time around, I'm pretty sure that I can embrace the unknown as an adventure. I'm getting a little excited to figure this all out.....we'll see.
I'm still quite able to obsess over life's details...still need to work on this. Lately I'm obsessing over whether I should repaint and upholster this set of late 19th/early 20th c. Louis XVI-style dining chairs.
They are really very nice French chairs (great fluted legs and carved backs and solid ash frames) but some one did a number on their paint job-----and to repaint and reupholster will be a pretty penny......On the other hand, I'm seeing painted Louis XVI-style chairs every where I look and I already have the Suzanne Kasler natural linen.....Oh, I wish there were 8 of the chairs...But I love the 90's French Indienne-style upholstery (which is still in absolutely MINT condition)...Or I could just flip them super fast on OKL...... clarity please!!
-------I'm open to suggestions and cheerleading.
Fall is definitely here--but we are slipping back into scorching summer for a few days next week.....Please pray for relief from California's intense drought.
(In case you missed the news: George Clooney and Amal were married in Venice this week-end. OOOOOY!)
Have a wonderful week.
