I like metal art


Metal Willow Tree, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

This pretty metal willow tree had been stuck behind the sofa for a few years and I decided this weekend was the time to hang it up (and it is straighter than my photo looks). I was going to hand it over the black computer desk, but getting it over the desk would have been a small feat. I took down a John Lennon framed piece that has a black frame and we’ll put that over the desk. I thought it would be nice to hang trinkets off of it too. I added a little domino book to the bottom there from a pal from the UK.
Bri also hung these stars up for me.

Brian and Sean assembled the Ikea bed yesterday (mostly Brian). He bought the same bed that he bought 7 years ago as it was a good price and the only one that fit in his room. The only issue-the directions, as they did 7 years ago, tell you to put the one set of support feet on in the wrong direction! Bri brought the old piece in again from outside and the feet were the opposite direction! You’d think someone would have caught that in the directions and fixed it in all this time. Sean said the new bed is a bit too firm-lol

I’m still looking at OW-OH blogs-over 700 now. I am getting a bit of eye strain, so I hope to divide the last 100 or so to about 25-30 a day. Where there is a will, there’s a way!

  1. Well it’s about time you hang those up if they’ve been sitting behind the couch so long! hehe The tree and stars look lovely.

    I don’t know how many times I’ve come to put something together by following the directions and they’re wrong! As you say, you’d think someone in the company would notice it and do something about it…no doubt they get lots of calls about it as well.

    I’ve only got about 40 more to visit in the OWOH and then I’m done. I had to quit for a few days because of eye strain! lol xoxo
