It’s too late in the day to call this one a Sunday Potpourri post, but after bingeing on Gilmore Girls all day, I felt the need to write a post. I carried my camera around and snapped some boudoir changes.
The chair (above) was once in the entry way/dining area, but now fits into a spot here. I love the Ireland photos on the walls in this photo: the angel, on the far right near the bed, is from a cemetery in Ireland. On the left are some boys in Dublin, and the one in the center, scarcely visible, is an old man next to a statue. Also in Dublin.
Lots of red hat stuff, too; a framed text in between the Ireland photos is the Red Hat Society mantra, entitled “When I Am Old”:
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat that doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me,
And I shall spend my pension
on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals,
and say we’ve no money for butter.
I have always loved this poem, ever since the time when I could even conceptualize getting older…and typed it in red text to frame next to some of the Red Hat stuff.
Now I don’t belong to the society…I consider myself too “young,” LOL.
Here is another view of the bedroom (more Red Hat stuff on the bookshelf on the right, and above the TV, a photo of two old men in an Irish pub).
And here are more Irish photos and figurines on my desk in the bedroom – (the Coca Cola lamp is a remnant from the dining area, where most of these things live):
And finally, another view of the entry way:
And now that I have finished my Netflix for the day, I’ll be back to reading The Last Letter from Your Lover, by Jojo Moyes:
And then I will be watching The Good Wife…love that show!
Are you enjoying your Sunday? What have you been reading/watching/or doing?
