|"Ta Da!" (allegedly my first words)|
I have plans for The Imaginary Mouse to go global...I mean, its totally doable considering that I already have seven followers and two of them are people I don't even know!!!
(Okay, so two of them are my sister Misty and I have no idea why she is on there twice but that still counts as seven followers...because I make the rules up around here, that's why...)
I had a revelation this morning...I crave creativity in my life and sometimes it's just not possible to haul a piece of furniture to the carport, clean it, strip it, prime it, paint it, and seal it with a baby like Gus
But this...this sweet little blog...it can be my creative outlet for now...I can't tell you how good it makes me feel when I see I've gained a new follower or, even better, have a comment left about a post...(hint, hint)
So I am going to try to post more often...not everyday...but maybe twice a week...It may not have a lot of "big reveals" involving furniture but I will share with you ideas and dreams I have for our little abode and maybe it will inspire you to try something in your home...you know, to think outside the box...
In light of the new look, I thought I should explain just who The Imaginary Mouse is...
Her name is Tressa...I
She is gray with big pink ears and she always wore a pale aqua shift dress...I have no idea why I named her Tressa...She had a brother named Johnny and a sister named Apple...(yep, Gwyneth Paltrow totally stole that name from me)
|Here is an artist's rendering of Tressa|
as she was late to today's photo shoot...
I can also remember pretending I was a cheerleader by running to my room and grabbing two of the throw pillows off my bed and bounding back in to the living room and performing to "Dueling Banjos" for Daddy while he sat there
Speaking of applause, I also thought that when I swished water around in my mouth it sounded like applause so I did it often...when I had no family to entertain (or maybe they were hiding from me? Hmm...)
Go ahead, try it...you know you want to...take a swig of whatever you are drinking...we won't judge just because its not even noon yet...
Doesn't it sound just like applause???
So the next time you are feeling blue or neglected or your boss tells you that you aren't turning in your T95 PL Reports fast enough, take a swig and let the crowd go wild...
Oh, and look...here is the fabric I got to make panels for the French doors in our Breakfast Room...
|Please disregard the dead fern on the left and get a load of all that happy going on all over that fabric!|
I think I will even have enough left over to create a border on some window mistreatments a la The Nester I want to do in the den...
And another project I want to take on is to use some moss somehow in my house...I'm thinking moss letters, like these:
|Pottery Barn letters|
I first saw the idea here at Dear Lillie, an incredibly talented blogger that has a beautiful home and an adorable daughter and another on the way...how does she do it?
There is something about the fresh green moss that just sings spring to me...If I get really brave (and have a three hour time slot to wield a glue gun safely without Gus around) I would love to go after this mirror:
|Silver mirror that needs some pizazz...it just seems embarrassed to be hanging behind the incredible Horchow Finale lamp and Anthropologie lamp shade|
So what do y'all think of the new look of The Imaginary Mouse?
Hey, I have an idea! Leave a comment (pretty please) and let me know!!!!
(and Tressa, The Imaginary Mouse)
P.S. Gratuitous Gus picture alert:
|Doesn't it look like they are saying the blessing? They weren't but this sweet moment certainly makes me count mine|
