2. Came across my new favorite word today: "designerati" - TM Decorno, who alas, is no longer writing her blog, but, happily, is still guesting at a couple of other design blogs from time to time. I spend a LOT of time reading design blogs online
Edited to add: that's not meant to sound all judgemental. It's just not what *I* want to do, is all. No offense to the online designerati intended. :)
3. The less-fun part of decorating: maintenance. *UGH* Do not want. What's hanging over my head right now that I'd rather not be doing? Sprucing up the baseboards in the dining room, for one thing. I did the entire rest of the house last summer, but somehow I forgot to do the dining room, and it looks that much more horrible next to the rest of the house where all the baseboards have been scrubbed, re-caulked, and re-painted. It'd take me like an hour if I'd just get off my ass and do it...but I probably won't. Bleh.
