Just Doing It

IMG_8761

I think one of the great adventures/obstacles in decorating (not my favorite word)

around the house,

is

JUST DOING IT.


It is so easy to get paralyzed by doubt,

or ideas of perfection-

or sitting,

or procrastinating.

But then one day something happens-

usually a sliver of a thought-

an idea-

a glimmer of a plan-

as in

I’ll put green and silver in the kitchen.

What happens next is a lesson straight from

my high school English class :

practice builds fluency.


Doing creates doing.

So…

Let’s all act as if.

Hop up.

Get up.

Move something…anything.

Try something.

Doing creates doing.

Is green in my kitchen

perfect?

Good grief no-

I’m just doing it.

You can too.

Love silver paired with just about any color but it really is eye catching paired with your green.

The green in your kitchen is lovely.
I used to have a collection of this green majolica, wish I still did.
