A Goal for 60

I didn't do a very good job with resolutions for this year but.... I have come up with the ultimate resolution for myself. By the time I turn 60 (in 1 1/2 years) my house will be fully decorated. I have a lovely home, lots of nice furniture, lovely new bath and great kitchen. It all falls a little bit short because I need rugs, things on the walls and things to make it cozy and pulled together. I met a lady that lives around the corner who is starting her own interior decorating business and is specializing in using what you have and buying on the cheap. Yesterday we went to Home Goods and found this chair. I couldn't pass it up because it is and it isn't outside my usual. It's my colors but a fun change. We also did some rearranging around my house that's leading to a few new fun projects. I'll have lots of before and after pictures to show. I think it's going to be a fun resolution - some shopping and some do it myself. I also think by the time I'm 60 my house should look finished.

LOVE your chair - daring yet classic black and white. I'm laughing at your goal to have your house complete by the time you turn 60 because my goal is to be in a new, much better suited for our family, house by the time I turn 40. I've had this same goal for a few years now but there's so little inventory out in the country where we live - plus we need to stay in our school dist. Well, i'll be 40 in december and i surely hope that both our goals come true. Can't wait to see your new rooms!

What a great chair! My house is always a work in progress. I think you and I are about the same age, so I'm hoping I get there by 60 too!
I was just reading a comment you posted on 'A Friend To Knit With' about putting sweaters together. I would LOVE to have your help with a sweater I finished a while back and can't (for the life of me!) figure out how to put together. Would you mind letting me know if you would do this for me and how much you charge?
Many thanks,
