Hello folks! Well, I don’t have a lot to share since not much has been going on lately.
2 weekends ago I went to this market/fair thing I went to last year to sell some bags that I sewed. Last year I sold quite a few of them, and since last year was the first time they had that fair I thought this year should be even better (word-of-mouth and such, you know).
It was all outside and the weather was so-so. Mostly sunny, but a little windy and a few drops of rain at one point.
Surprisingly, there were not a lot of people there. The ones who were there were mostly seniors and also seemed mostly interested in the food.
Most people didn’t even stop to take a look. They all seemed to follow the smell of the Bratwurst.
Well, guess what- I didn’t sell a single thing! Not one. My mom bought one of the bags and one of the oilcloth make-up bags, since she had her eye on them ever since I made them. And then my grandma bought 2 bags as presents for friends, but I don’t need to go to a market to sell bags to my family.
My mom was actually the only one there who sold a few things (she does garden pottery). All the other “vendors” also didn’t sell anything. So yeah, we’re not going back next year. We even left early while it was raining a little heavier.
So, about the reconsidering part of this post… I’ve been looking at my living room, and, well…
I like the mint green. I like it with the couch, I think they go great together.
But this gray/mint combo is what could be called “seasonally challenging”. It’s hard to make the room cozy and warm and comfy on these cool fall days and nights. I can’t imagine Christmas decorations in here, really. But mostly…
It’s just not me!
It feels too modern for me, I’m still a country casual! So I think I’m gonna repaint. I ‘m thinking about a soft warm creme color, something kinda off-white and neutral but warm and cozy. And then I want the ÅDUM rug from IKEA (here’s a close-up):
It’s nice and soft and not too hard to keep clean and I love the color. And yes, I know that with a similar wall color and the color of the couch it could all look pretty blah and boring, but in my head it looks perfect! I can add color accents in the art on the wall and by switching out throw pillows and candles around the room. And most importantly, I think it will feel like me, and therefore like home.
Oh, and I kinda think the same goes for the gray walls in my bedroom. The gray is darker than I had wanted and feels a little cold. Especially now in the fall. I can’t imagine what winter will feel like! So I might repaint there, too…
Have you ever regretted or reconsidered a paint choice?
