It's the little things that count - always - at the end of the day it's the small acts of kindness that make everything bearable.
Do any of you remember " April " ?
I redid her antique dining room set HERE and HERE and her chairs HERE and had way too much wine with her HERE
But my favorite post about her refers to her heart collection HERE - I'd never seen so many hearts in one home ( and that post didn't cover all of them )
FAR TOO MANY LINKS I KNOW - SO IF YOU'RE ONLY GOING TO CLICK ON ONE OF THEM - CLICK ON THE HEART ONE - IT'S SOOOO WORTH IT
A couple of weeks ago - ( actually the second day we moved into this house ) there was a small bag on the door waiting for me.
In the midst of a " hell on earth " environment someone thought of me and left these ......................
My smile was ear to ear ( and at the same time I was dangerously close to crying ) I didn't have to even look at the card to know who it was from - isn't that an amazing " signature " to have?
But of course the card was every bit as beautiful
And the cutest thing of all ???
Her real name is not April at all lol - that was a name I invented for the blog - that she signed it as such made me smile even more :)
Here real name is June - there I've said it - it's out there now - because it deserves to be.....................
But really from here on in I will call her the Heart Lady - because she collects them - because she has a huge one - but mostly because she touched mine deeply with her kindness.
This gets added to the one Carol from Heart and Sand sent me when she found out I wanted to start collecting them
On another note, the wallpaper is up in the bedroom - and the floor is almost finished - I'm painting out the wooden frame window ( and don't give me hell for it - it does NOT look good with the white and black - you know it - even if you hate painting wood - you KNOW this would look better painted, right? lol )
The right side of the floor is completely finished - the left side still needs a couple of more coats............
The wall paper was a nightmare to put up - with the window and the angled ceiling!!!
And tomorrow hopefully I'll show you the ceiling I went with for the kitchen - it was not what I thought I was doing at all !!!
For every comment you leave - please know I read them - they're my smiles during the day - when I take a few moments here and there to come sit at the computer - but sitting at the computer is becoming fewer and farther between with this mandate I've set for myself to have the bedroom completed by Sunday !!!
I think John may leave me if I don't get it done - seriously - 2 weeks in and he's done - can't stand living like this and keeps telling me " this is insane woman " so the countdown is on :)
Oh and in the midst of all of this I keep forgetting - I received some Milk Paint to do a review on and I'm oh about 2 months late in doing so - ( the move, people, the move !!! ) so I'm really hoping I can get something done with it within the next couple of weeks - because they have graciously agreed to sponsor a giveaway at the same time.................
Off to put another coat on the floor :)
