Mehso-so

2.5/5⭐ This book is for people who have never thought about a metaphor. I guess there are such people out there, so I can't really fault the book for its scope. But for anyone who's read/watched/encountered any fictional story ever, it's mostly useless to have a book whose goal is to tell the reader “bathing can cleanse not just the body but also THE MIND“ or “knives cut physical things but can also cut through BULLSHIT.“ Oooh, *wavy hands* (cont)

hissingpotatoes The book takes so long to say the simplest thing, or nothing at all. It has little to no practical advice, though if you consider it a collection of archetypes/correspondences, it works better. Points to the author for equally incorporating worldwide mythology/folktales and not just Christian ones like I feared. The mandala exercise at the very end of the book was an interesting way for readers to actually think about their own lives. 2d

1.5/5⭐ When a book is limited to discussing only a handful of colors, most of them pales/pastels, everything starts to get samesy after only a couple pages. This book has two things to say: 1) painting wall trim the same color throughout the house unifies the rooms, and 2) yellow is a brightening color. And it says it over, and over, and over again.

In case your coffee didn't wake you up I thought this vintage throwback 70s kitchen might do the trick.

Tamra Oh man, that would keep anyone awake at any time. 😵 8mo
Gina @Tamra I can still see it when I close my eyes. 8mo
Tamra @Gina it has its appeal in a very hallucinogenic way. 😆 8mo

Gina @Tamra HA! You are spot on with that! 8mo
wanderinglynn Wow! Can you imagine someone on LSD walking into that kitchen? 😳 8mo
EadieB definitely an eye-opener! 8mo
Gina @wanderinglynn my guess is the designer / owner was on LSD when they designed this.. 8mo
AmyG @wanderinglynn @Tamra @Gina Ha! The Timothy Leary Kitchen Collection. 8mo
wanderinglynn @Gina good point. 8mo

I spent the weekend reorganizing my bookshelves. They are now lovely and arranged alphabetically. Here are a few of the shelves.

Samplergal It‘s so fun to see what‘s on everyone‘s shelves! Thanks for sharing. Great job! 12mo
britt_brooke Nice!! 12mo
BarbaraBB Are all your rows double? That must be hard, to choose the books that go to the back! 12mo

batsy Nice! @BarbaraBB Most of mine are also double or even triple stacked, which is why it seems easier to buy a new book than pick out an unread one from my own shelves 😂😂 12mo
RidgewayGirl @BarbaraBB They are on these shelves, but every time I tidy them up, different books end up in front. It‘s like a whole new tbr every few months! And if I want a specific book, it‘s easy to find. 12mo
BarbaraBB That‘s a smart solution! 12mo
BarbaraBB @batsy 😂😂 12mo
Liz_M I love the alternating horizontal and vertical! 12mo
RidgewayGirl @Liz_M Thanks, I do, too. And it lets me fit a few more books on each shelf. 12mo

I met Carleton Varney, interior decorator with Dorothy Draper Co., at the Greenbrier Resort. He signed a book for me and even drew a whimsical self-portrait. We told him we go back and forth for conferences. It says, “For Jill Happy Days at the Greenbrier__come back & forth soon Carleton Varney. #interiordesign #design #authorsigning

Have you ever been compelled to order a book online and been thoroughly disappointed? That‘s what happened with this book. I was reading in another book about this designer who transformed rooms into posh and fanciful spaces with hardly spending a dime. Maybe I could do the same? This is what arrived and rather than inspiring, it is depressing. Missing its outer cover, small crowded print and confusing black and white sketches. #learnedthehardway

robinb What a disappointment. 😔😩 1y
DivineDiana @robinb It‘s hard to know what you‘re getting when you order on line! 🤷‍♀️ 1y
Cinfhen Ugh!!!! So disappointing 1y

LeahBergen Blah. I hate when that happens. 😠 1y
DivineDiana @Cinfhen @LeahBergen Thank you for commiserating with me! ❤️❤️ 1y
robinb @DivineDiana that‘s so true. It‘s hard to know if the hype is your kind of hype or someone else‘s kind of hype...know what I mean?! I just hope for the best. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y
TrishB Yep, descriptions can be very misleading - good and bad! 1y
Itchyfeetreader This does not look splendid! 1y
DivineDiana @TrishB So true! 👍🏻 1y
DivineDiana Agree wholeheartedly! 😂 1y
Lcsmcat Oh, I loved this book. We used it when we were first married (34 years ago) and our edition has color plates. I‘m sorry to hear that you were disappointed. 1y
DivineDiana @Lcsmcat Thank you. Did you use any of her suggestions? 1y
