The new music station caused me to once again shuffle everything around in the Living Room but have no fear, folks, Paul is staying.
(An updated furniture floor plan. I don’t know what happened to those poche walls but it looks kind of cool.)
There are some pieces in the house that I really want to hold on to, others I keep around because they fit in for now or I’m still hunting down that amazingly-perfect-but-so-cheap-from-a-thrift find. “Paul”, as I call my McCobb Planner Group secretary is a keeper. He was holding up the ledges wall but has now moved over here to greet visitors at the front door.
This wall is looking a little bare but I’m slowly moving in artwork as the furniture continues to shuffle around. What’s great about this setup is it gives us the “landing strip” they’re always pushing for over at Apartment Therapy. The salon-style vinyl chair is a great place to drop my purse or my work bag and Paul gladly holds the day’s mail and the contents of JT’s pockets.
(View from the front door above. That’s my Martin Sigma that I still don’t know how to play yet.) Ironically the salon style vinyl chair and the four wood chairs we have around the tulip table were the things I thought for sure would sell at the Green Shag sale last year but didn’t. Then I had each posted on Craigslist and now I’m pretty glad they’re still here. Go figure.
In the (much larger) world outside our living room, Google decided to close down its Reader. I liked Reader so much that I even blogged about it (almost two years ago! yikes!) So what is a blog-addicted girl to do? I tried out Feedly and liked the iPhone app but it wouldn’t work on the required Internet Explorer browser we have at work. No blog reading all day long? Not happening. So I switched over to Bloglovin. (Kind of wish they had a better name, makes me think of McLovin from Superbad). It has a much more image-oriented format, which I am enjoying so far.
(Yep, that’s a screenshot from my Bloglovin account and I am a major blog addict!!!)
In the blog world, I’m afraid we may have lost JT from this site forever. He set up a great new site for his band, Grand Beauty, here. We haven’t all the way decided on things but I think he may start posting his guitar raids and fixes on the band website. We’ll see.
At any rate, you should check it out. He’s uploaded a bunch of their recordings. That’s my husband singing “Beast of Burden” and if it doesn’t make you want to take your clothes off and dance around, you may need to have your head examined. Cheers – CT
PS – HAPPY BIRTHDAY SISTER!
