Other bloggers make abstract art from all vegetable paints grown from their backyard garden and reupholster furniture with dirty socks but I'm still working through junk mail on my coffee table from February so let's just call that 'master tablescaper' on my resume.
So if you've been wondering why I'm blogging less it's because I've spent more time this Spring thinking about lipstick and The Walking Dead than what manner of DIY project I'm going to fail at for my resume.
If you don't count the massive amounts of laundry I did during the 7th Generation of Holy Hell weekend 3 weeks ago, the only home-related activity I've engaged in was a little tweak to my dining room.
That being I did some shooting at the range and added my target (In Hermezz orange?) to the right side of the China Cabinet of Curiosities and Shit. I believe in balance when it comes to decor.
And discipline and accuracy for proper firearm proficiency.
I should probably put some art or sconces up there but the souvenirs from the shooting range are more fun and remind to keep practicing. What have sconces ever done for you than helpfully illuminate a space and not scare your dinner guests?
But I didn't stop there. I pushed forward with monumental changes the internet would love like organizing my blankets in my linen closet.
Is it a freezing winter night and you're drunk on cheap wine and haven't shaved your legs in 6 days and want to walk around in a cocoon of fleece? I've got you covered.
Is it dusk during a Spring rainshower and you need a gentle layer on your extremities? Try these chenille spreads from my grandmother.
Going on a picnic? Need to look like an Anthropologie catalog spread? Choose which vintage quilt top goes with your olive tapenade.
Other bloggers probably only have one tasteful blanket they knitted from their shaved pubes but that doesn't really work with my next picnic theme.
I may not have fancy sconces but I have a linen closet that makes me swell full of fuzzy pride and dining room wall art that I have a sneaking suspicion Martha would approve of too.
So I apologize for being a bad design blogger but I'll never apologize for my badass hobbies and OCB.
That's Obsessive Compulsive Blanketing.
