I am starting to get the notices that things are shipping out to me. Yay! I should have my turtles this weekend. Yippee. I love those turtles. They would be so cute in my craft room, in a tiny little basket.
I have decided my craft room/our guest room is going to be decorated in a beach motif. I have not told SO this yet, but he said I could do whatever I want with it, and that is whatever I want. I have some nautical-themed stitching, and Shores of Hawks Run Hollow would go great in there--changing that one square that refers to the dead guy. He has the living room decorated with lighthouses (but not in a tacky way), and we do live in Maryland, and I have always loved the water, so this is a great way to tie it all together, and I am sure I can find a few nice pieces so it doesn't feel like a sewing room for when our guests visit. It would just be a matter of decided if we want to stick with sheers for the window to keep it airy, or try to find something a little heavier. I can see doing both, especially because we have that Dazor lamp, and the room faces west, so I am terrified that the magnifier will start a fire when we aren't there because we didn't put it out of the light far enough (Yes, I am a little paranoid). But wouldn't it be so nice to have a room that is just like the beach, with silvery blues, and sandy beiges, with photos of the seashore, and some stitching to come home to after a crappy day at work? Just like being on the beach, but without the sand flies. I could even put my little box of shark teeth I collected out, since they are one of my treasures.
Even my little turtles would fit in. They aren't sea turtles, but who's gonna know the difference?
