inspiration – mismatched chairs

pastel chairs

via Centsational Girl

I know some people think that mismatched chairs is a bit of a contrived look but I love it.  A cohesive look can still be obtained by painting them a coordinating or even the same colour. This mix is great with white, blue, natural wood and a tiny pop of pink.

It inspires me.

Here’s what I was up to this weekend:

Fingerless gloves

Knitting up a fingerless glove for my left hand – three attempts were needed to fix my gauge, placement of thumb, etc.  Now onto the right one

The Birth House

Starting The Birth House by Ami McKay.  I know I’m late as this book received huge praise several years ago but it has been on my ‘to read’ list for awhile and I finally picked it up from a used bookstore last week

Wrapping gifts

Making a huge dent in my x-mas shopping list (and not leaving the wrapping until the last minute)
