This is a Promise with a Catch

In my last post, I mentioned a project I wanted to work on and asked for your help.  You all came through like champs, and I had such a hard time deciding exactly what quote I was going to use.  

     Watching a video from nieniedialogues, I noticed she had some adorable patterned letters on the front of her piano (Watch the Friday I'm in Love video from Nov. 4th).  

Seeing as how Tim & I admire ours more than we actually play it, I wanted in on that patterned-letter-piano-action.  

 After a quick trip to Hobby Lobby, I ended up with this...

     I also added a framed picture of binoculars that came from an old Sears Catalog.  I cracked up at the connection between "finding" love and the binoculars.  Maybe I'm just easily amused.  I have one or two things I'd like to move around (I'm not crazy about the blank space between the records and the phone).

     One of the things I dread about winter is moving around about 3/4 of our living room decor.  The wood stove makes everything next to and above it SO HOT that it makes even the simplest of things a potential fire hazard (or melts them completely as we learned the hard way our first winter).  I'd also like to mention that the heat from the wood stove killed my favorite houseplant, and yes- I'm still getting over it.

Make it Yours @ My Backyard Eden

All joking aside, I'm pretty tickled with it for now.

     Why'd I end up with that quote, you ask?

Well, you'll just have to wait until tomorrow.

Love and patience, grasshopper.
