I've Got Hang-Ups

One of the things I'd had my eye on for a long time is this Hang-It-All coat rack which was designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller in 1953. Its whimsical design fits perfectly in the studio, where we will use it to hang our coats and stuff. Dale's already got his Irish caps and cane up there. I wish the wall color came out better--it really is a beautiful aqua-y shade of blue.

On another note, I've noticed that the blog is getting a lot of hits lately. I really have a following? What's up with that??!?! Of course I immediately fretted over the fact that I haven't been posting nearly as much as I want to. I still haven't posted about my trip to SanFrancisco in June! Yikes.
It has mostly been because of the work thing, which I thought was beginning to get under control, but the projects keep on coming in. I'm definitely not going to complain about these problems of abundance--but it sure would be nice to go back to 8-hour days. And back to the gym.
And I now have Facebook. I sort of resisted for a while, but after my niece's wedding it was a logical decision as a place for posting photos and stuff that was accessible to many people. Sad to say it really fits my short-attention span lifestyle of late. It is just less time-consuming to quickly put up a photo or write a few sentences about what crazy-ass thing happened that day than it is to write a cleverly-written post.
Anyway, thank you readers for continuing to read this 'lil blog....I'm still having fun!

I'm glad you're still posting and getting lots of hits! :) I really like your writing--it's interesting and funny. :)

On another note, feel free to make me a Facebook friend. :) My first name is Carla--and you know my (and my hubby's) last name. *smiles*

The facebook thing, totally understandable. I blame twitter for killing my blog. Although I refuse to let it totally die, it's certainly been hang on via life support lately. It's so much easier to send out little quips during the day than the write thoughtful posts. Trouble is, my Twitter, Facebook and blog reach different audiences. There's some overlap, but if I only stick to one, people get left out :(

Glad to see your still here, and cool coat rack!

MHP--thanks for the support and bein' my friend. =)

GR--I hope you don't totally quit your blog because I love it! But I know how hard it is to post stuff. I've been staying away from twitter mainly because I don't have a smart phone but also because I've only got about 2Meg RAM left in my cranium and I think my head would explode if I give it any more data to process.
