This is a couch and a throw in a friend's studio. It's decorated sparsely, but I find it a very comfortable place to hang out. Now, when it comes to interior decorating, I'm not your man. I struggle a bit just looking for new furniture or even deciding on paint for walls, but luckily I live with a gal who seems to be able to see the 'big' picture. She knows what she wants and goes and gets it. Yes, she excels at the big, but her true strength seems to lie in the small touches. She is confident too. She never asks, she just makes the subtle changes around the house. For me, it becomes a game of wonder, as I stumble upon changes. Additions all. A basket here, a bottle with flowers here, a stack of books here, a plate rescued from a garage sale, or a lamp on the porch with a string of little lights entwined, they all seem to at to the essence of this dated farmhouse. I guess we all have our strengths. Oh me? Well, I ain't braggin' much, but I think I might have taught one of our cats to talk this summer. What have you been up to?
