No, I didn’t tell anyone to eat cake for dinner. I simply went furniture shopping and saw this:
When the family pulled up in front of the furniture store, Meg was all like “Hon, there’s a shield with crossed swords over the doorway. I don’t think this looks good for us. It feels like the staff might be wearing chainmail!” He replied, Let’s give it shot, OK?
Well, as you can imagine, when the salesperson complied by showing the couple some bedrooms, Meg said something like “Well, it reminds me of a place I visited this past summer. Ever heard of Versailles?”
Also, did you know the complete set for a room is called “A Suit”? As opposed to a “Suite”, pronounced “Sweet”?
Meg was confused beyond belief when she finished her first furniture shopping foray. She tried to find some stuff that matched their vintage New England look, but saw a lot of mesquite, cowboy and French Revolution style stuff. Stay tuned as Meg scours the State of Texas for things that fit her lifestyle and sensibility. Oddly enough, she started with pillows and throws this morning and she thinks that might be a jumping off point for her. Shopping on-line appears to be the way to go!
She is also working on the prison style lighting and hopes that is gone soon.
Pray Meg doesn’t take her guillotine out and lop her head off in frustration as the quest for a cozy home continues.
