with a heart all it's own
with lots of bookshelves for art display and books ofcourse
and a mantle
for an ever-changing inspiration board
and walls to hang up all that i've been working on
and a beautiful view
and all my thrift store finds that don't quite go with the rest of the house
it's hard to believe it's almost done and that i can finally spend some quality time here with some sense of order after sitting on my bed to sew all these months or fill the dining room table with my sewing machine and fabrics.
i hadn't wanted to tell you that this room and all the bottom floor flooded with an inch of water two days before x-mas. so i waited, aired it out, and gave it time to heal.
it seems it has now forgotten, as i have,
how close it came to danger.
and for that
an ode & a song
