I Can't Stop

8.14.2016

Sometimes I wish I could just turn off my mind and just stop. Stop thinking of new projects to do. Stop thinking of moving things around. Stop wondering if this or that would look better....just stop. But since I can't turn my mind off things are always changing around here and being updated. It's just the way my mind works and I know I'm not alone.

The round table doesn't look like this anymore.

The mirror which I do love has undergone a change plus a few other changes in this room.

This mirror has moved again and has been replaced with something better.

This ottoman was a bit large for this room so it has been moved and replaced with the drum table again for a better fit and I painted it again. For the life of me I can't find a picture of what it  looked like before except for when it was the green gray color which was Chateau Gray.

This bench has moved and been replaced with something else.

I've been gathering things for the great room to transition to fall soon. The rug has been switched out and I can't wait to share the new one. I'm ready to swap summer out for fall soon if only it would cool down outside. We'll hang on to summer a few more weeks.

I guess if I could turn off my mind and get it to stop then the blog would stop too.
That would not make me happy!

Stay tuned for all those changes and I'm sure more.

Happy Sunday!

  1. You big tease, you! I am convinced you never sleep, Kim! I am constantly changing things around in my head but I don't always act on them. I guess that's why I love to see your updates so much. Always so inspiring! Enjoy your Sunday!

It's tge way you are wired and of course we live seeing your changes and wonderful ideas. Perhaps you could start creating and helping others design their space or write a ni e coffee table book? Love seeing all your inspiring changes!

  10. Dear Kim,
    Don't worry about not being able to stop - that's a blessing, not a curse. If ever the day comes when you're not able to start, that's when to get concerned! So many of us are like you - we love to keep feathering our nests!! It's what keeps us going and brings us joy!

  15. Kim, I've said it before, you are an energizer bunny. My mind is often thinking of creating, changing, etc. but getting my body in gear to actually do some of these things is another story.
    This afternoon, I'm enjoying reading some blogs, while we have a nice rainfall outside. '-)

    1. Jane, the day the blog quits making money is the day I'll have to stop changing things. :)

  18. Kim I'm just like you my mind is going all the time. Right now I have the flu and what do I do...not rest....I get up and stain a crate for the kitchen. Now that could surely wait but nope it was on my mind so I had to do it.

  20. You inspire me to "shop" my home to change things up! Thank you.

  21. Yes..but you are an inspiration to so,many of us because of your never ending ideas for us to interpret in our homes. I am still looking for wall space to do a breadboards display like you have. Ha! Sheila

  23. Haha! I've always said it's a disease! An inherited one, since my mom and I (and my daughters) all have it. I always love seeing your changes. It's so refreshing! Thanks for all the inspiration.

  24. My husband asked me once if I could just let my mind go blank and
    enjoy the moment. We were sitting on the front porch of our dream home which sits on the back side of 16 acres looking out over the rolling lawn surrounded by the trees dressed in their fall colors reflected in the water of the lake, blah,blah and so on. I was talking about ways we could landscape around the drive, move some bushes, plant some trees, paint and add some porch furniture.......I WAS enjoying the moment!! I turned to him and said,"Blank? No thinking? Nothing???" Whoever heard of such:/
