Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

I adored you when you first came to live at our house.  I was so grateful to Sewing Bee for finding you for me.  You looked so fresh and sweet at the start.  But, I say this with a heavy heart, it is time for you to go.  I'm not sure when this will happen, but I wanted to prepare you.  We had a good run, didn't we?  It's been eleven years.  (Holy Cow!  I can't believe I've had you for that long.)

I've been seduced.  It's hard for me to admit this to you and maybe we can blame the internet, but you just aren't as attractive as you used to be.  I keep seeing newer fresher colors and ideas on the blogs I visit.  Yes, we can blame the internet for this.  I am so sorry.  My friends don't understand how we can be coming to an end, but it's time.  They haven't lived with you for 11 years.

You should know that the new inspiration is already living here with us.  I've been keeping it in the closet for awhile now, but Worker Bee is getting on board and I need to bring it out in the open.  I've been buying it little trinkets all along now.  You'll always be in my heart and in lots of photographs.

It's not you, it's me.

I'll let you know when the final good-bye will be.  Thanks for being so understanding.  Please don't let the living room know about this yet, 'cause it's next.

P.S.  Want to see the new guy?


Oh dear I was so emotionally distraught talking about my break up I forgot to mention my giveaway.  Today at midnight is your last chance to win a spa-like giveaway.  Just leave a comment here to be entered.

Thanks for dropping in for a chat.  What do you think of the future changes?


  1. It's hard to change ... I know! It will be gorgeous when you have it completed. Can't wait to see.

  7. I can't wait to see pictures of the room after you get it done. How exciting to be changing the whole look.

  8. Oooo la la! What a lovely change it's going to be! That wallpaper is cute though. But I'm sure it served you well for those 11 years. Time for some excitement!

  9. This posting cracked me up. But I love the new fabric! hope to see more soon. I'm enjoying your blog! Sherry

  10. Janelle, breaking up is hard to do. I love the cherries, but I also love the new look, too. Too bad we cannot have two or three houses to decorate, huh?

    Your blog is looking soooo cute, too!


  11. LOL...glad you didn't rush into it! Change is hard. I can tell that you aren't impulsive so I know that you have given this a good deal of thought. Just leave the cherries on your garage heap and I'll be by to pick them up in the middle of the night. ;-)


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
