Just as a side note and before you think someone will find me eaten by my own dogs :) I can be practical: I built this house with my ex-husband but he left half-way through so I learned to frame, put in nogs, plaster board, put down undertile heating, put in old floor boards and so much stuff I really could have easily gone my whole life happily never doing. I know how to use every power tool on the market and was scared of the Skill-saw (Circular Saw) for about 3 years but have been forced to add that to the list of tools I have mastered. Angle grinders cut tiles as well as roofing iron, the router is a shit to get right, I have no table saw so learned to use a level and clamps to get a perfect straight edge.
There are still many things that need finishing, but the best thing about all of this is I can choose which area of the "house decorating" or "house building" I want to do next. Having a couple of projects on the go at once lets me decide if I don't feel like sanding the dumb deck. It also stops me from getting overwhelmed - lots of lists with many things on it so the smallest of stuff gets crossed off.
What I am trying to say is: 1. all of us can do absolutely anything in life if we want, have to, need to, etc. I get so many people say to me they could never do it - but they absolutely could. and 2. It may make me sound slight less crazy about the next bit :)
There are many silly things I collect (it's not junk if it looks nice) some of which are downright ugly. I love china ducks but I am telling you I have looked for years in NZ for a set and this guy is the best I can find. I really want three so bad!
For everyone who has a beautiful beige, black or white
interior home with lots of glass - you will hate this :)
