Sparks are flying around the blogosphere again today, as we join in with Alyce, At Home With Books, to showcase our Saturday Snapshots.
After enjoying last weekend with grandkids, I started thinking about the arrangement of my living room. I wanted change. And even though I’ve changed various pieces in the living room, dining room, etc., two large pieces seemed unchangeable. I could only ever visualize the big sofa and love seat as they have been since I moved in five years ago. Like this.
But my granddaughter is very much an “outside the box” thinker, and while I’ve been known to do the same, I was stymied. Stuck.
But then she said: Put one of the pieces on the diagonal.
And I realized that would work. Plus, the fireplace is already at an angle. So here’s what I came up with….
So as I sit back with my book and gaze around, I am satisfied. For now.
And I have to laugh as I think about all that huffing and puffing and sweating in order to make the changes. It was morning, fortunately, but was already heading toward a hot day. But the best part? Finding inspiration from an unexpected source.
After I washed away the toil of the morning, I went to lunch with a friend…and relaxed.
Now I’m off to visit your blogs…and see what you’ve snapped this week.
