    ha ha ha ha ha! That squirrel is my spirit animal……………… Obsessed is a very strong word Michele, although, I can while away an hour or two re-arranging glass cloches on my kitchen island, I do get a little too irritated by the sight of a cushion placed on it’s point, I don’t think the words; pleather, cup-holder or reclining action should preceed the word “chair”, EVER and my husband has been known to utter the words, “I’m just glad I’m not Helen Keller!”

      AMEN and amen to all of the banned chair prefixes! Lord have mercy, I want to be that patient, loving, peaceful doggie who is not bothered at all by the compulsive freak and is enjoying the massage! Thanks for playing along, friend. xox

      I’m laughing hysterically at the words you say should never precede the word “chair”. I feel EXACTLY the same way! When I had a decorating business I swore to myself that if anyone ever asked me to design a room with team-colored reclining chairs with cup-holders in them, I’d refuse the project.

      (I’m gonna laugh over this one allllllllll day! Thanks for the wonderful giggle!)

    Guilty as charged on most points. Though I don’t follow anyone on Pinterest, I go there for inspiration frequently. Years ago, I truly thought Pinterest was just for decorating inspiration ideas. When someone first told me she’d gotten a recipe from Pinterest I actually said “There are recipes on there??” Yes, Decor Obsession is my middle name. 😉

    Loved the wonderful giggles while reading this post with morning tea. I’m going to share it with a friend.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Loved your squirrel video. I laughed out loud. You forgot the 10th clue; when you subscribe to every interior design blog out there because if you don’t, you’re afraid you will miss something really fabulous. Now that’s obsessed!

    • michele
      April 20, 2018 / 4:07 pm

      Yes! Great clue and F.O.M.S.R.F. helps my blog stay active! Happy weekend, Lisa. 🙂

    Guilty as charged!! Always envisioning my kitchen cabinets a different color!! Now the difference between damask and jacquard, I’m a little sketchy on that……maybe I’m a borderline design freak?. Have a great weekend!

      You are sketch-y all right – in the loveliest way! Bon weekend! xox

    I love to decorate and vignettes are my passion. My husband thinks I’m quite bonkers. Friends & family come to me for advice and tweaking. Pinterest, Houzz and decorating blogs are my companions during quiet time. But, paint is not my specialty. I find it painful – so many slight variations. No bodies perfect, right?!

      You are in mighty good company! Have a wonderful weekend, friend. 🙂
