Fancy Focus Friday

“Focus. Focus. Focus.”

I have to tell myself this constantly. My imagination is always running wild.

I have lists upon lists of project ideas.
I have lists upon lists of organization ideas.
I have lists upon lists of lists!
This is getting ridiculous.

I won’t even get into the endless ideas saved in my Pinterest boards.
(Will I EVER get around to doing any of those things? Who knows.)

One of my biggest peeves, though, is being able to actually finish a project once it’s started.

Oh, Headboard! How I adore thee.

I have a lovely tufted headboard in a not-so-lovely and stained shade of green.

I found it on Craigslist many moons ago for $30. I wasn’t so in love with the colour when I saw it, but it was a steal so I got it anyway. I didn’t mind the green so much after a while, but then I noticed the stain or faded part or whatever it is on this fabric that makes it ugly.

I’m trying not to think too hard about what the previous owners did to it.

I DO love this thing, though.


A monster might live under my building. I should be careful.
