When Your Husband Asks for a Better Lamp to Read By...

When your husband asks for a better lamp to read by and you move the floor lamp from one side of the room to the other...


...you'll notice the bare wall you've meant to hang something on. You'll dig out two frames from your decoration boxes and sort through your child's art work for something suitable, then bang in a couple of nails to hang them.


You'll notice that moving the table and lamp from where you put the floor lamp looks a little bare, so you'll move the children's bookcase out and lug the dollhouse over.


You'll have to find a spot for the displaced lamp and vase from the side table, so you'll put them on the desk and move the things that were there to the windowsills.


Next, you'll trip over the bookcase and so you'll push and pull it over to it's old location in the family room (where you like it better anyway!).


Now, the table that was there needs to be relocated and re-decorated. Taking the round decorator's table that was there and putting it in storage makes taking care of at least one thing easy!


All that's left to do is find a home for the table that was kicked out of the reading room. How about in the corner where the baby swing is since the baby has gotten to big for it? We'll wait to decorate it until the Autumn decorations come out!


Moving the swing upstairs to the nursery where it will await it's fate of being dismantled until we need it again and passing the linen closet will remind you that the light bulb in the floor lamp that started all of this needs to be replace before your husband can switch on the lamp and read!

This is great. Sounds much like a day in my life.

I LOVE that little house-bookcase. And how wonderful that you were able to frame your child's art. I need to remember to do that as we get settled into the new house.

Tee hee.

You are welcome to rearrange my house anytime. I'll even give you a cookie.

Your home looks beautiful! Simple and functional as well. I love the dollhouse-we have one very similar from Magic Cabin but in a darker stain. Where did you get yours and the furniture inside??
Thanks!
Jennifer

Very nice! I got the inspiration immediately! I've been having fun mentally aranging and rearranging our playroom for when the new floor is finished. :-)

Oh, and I can't believe the baby has outgrown the swing already!

Sounds like the poem, "The Sailor," by A.A. Milne.
