Importing Blog Posts

I continue to procrastinate. I am now playing around with importing blog posts from my various blogs from past years into Easily Distracted by Shiny Things. So far so good. If you see some weird things hang tight. I have to reformat pictures as I import them.


Ever have those days where you have a ton of stuff to get done, but no real motivation go move your butt from the couch? Today was one of those days. Instead o f dishes, laundry, housework, bills, plants and pets to take care of, etc. I decided to clean up my bookmarks. Remember before Pinterest when you would bookmark cool ideas? I finally went though and opened each bookmark, pinned the neat-o idea I had been saving for years and then deleted the bookmark. Repeat about 150 times. Well that was productive, not. I then proceeded to update the look of my blog, repeat about 50 times until I found something that I liked for today. My son yells at me (not really) about not posting to my blog but then spending hours tweaking how it looks. He is right of course. I hardly write anymore. And blog posts are few and far between. He had an great suggestion of importing posts from various previous blogs into this one so everything is in one spot. How awesome is that idea?! I don't know if I can do it, but it will be fun to try. As for the writing more suggestion .... crickets....its a good idea of course. But will I do it? We shall have to wait to find out. Inspiration seems to be lacking. I've got updates to the house to document but my camera is eating batteries faster than I can take pictures so that will have to wait.

Hollywood Regency Bedroom

I love Hollywood Regency style with its eclectic mix of glamor, shiny surfaces, Asian influences and a touch of mid century modern. At least 1960's Hollywood Regency has a touch of mid century modern. This is a mood board for my bedroom.I hope to get pretty close to how this looks. I already have the chair, the peacocks on the wall, the lampshades, both the nightstand chests and another chest I'm thinking of painting white. My budget for a complete transformation is $500 which includes paint, bedding, new lights, artwork, drapes, accessories and an upholstered headboard. Wish me luck! Of course I'll post before pictures when I'm ready to get started and update pictures throughout the process.
