Bringin' in the Green ...

I think it is because I am a Libra.  Last night at dinner we had a "sign" discussion. 
 Do you ever really think about this?

My family agrees that as a Libra I like to "visit".  Yes, we have had discussions about this ... what is your strength?  Mine ... as lame as it sounds ... is to "visit".  There is nothing I would rather do than sit on a porch, deck, den, table with a glass of tea or wine or whatever you are or I am pouring.  

It all started on my Aunt Matt's porch in Greenville, Alabama.
Have a I told you about this?  When the mosquitos were out she smothered me in Vick's Vapor Rub. 
Yes, it works.
Not even the nasty mosquitos can interfere with a good

And also as a Libra ... I have a hard time making up my mind.  
I like Rustic. I like Refined.  I love Both.

But I do Know that I want to bring in the Green.  
And with Black and Cream Buffalo Plaid.
Not only at Christmas.

What do you do best?

Making the World More Beautiful.  One Room at a Time.




  1. Interesting thought. I can't nail it in a word, but Im great with creative ideas. Not so much on the follow through, but I can visualize. I drive my husband nuts coming up with all these ideas and he says to draw up a plan with the measurements, but I don't think like a carpenter or builder. The artist in me is etherial and floating a few feet off the ground. I'd like to visit with you again! xo Nancy

  2. I'm a Virgo so a perfectionist at heart but can't quite get there so it's very frustrating. Wanting my home decorated for Christmas now and done beautifully, but oh, so much work to do...hope you're having a great week!!

  3. My husband and I both Cancers so we like to nest. We both love a comfy space.

  4. That is a good discussion. One of my favorite childhood memories is playing with dolls under the dining room table while I listed to my parents and friends visit. :) I love a good visit too, even though I am a Cancer. I don't know signs very well but I do know I'm loving that buffalo check.

  5. I like this conversation. We are all so quick to know what we 'can't do', it is nice to recognize what we are good at. I like to think that I am good at organizing groups of people. I have endless ideas, but then talk myself out of most of them. I like to visit, too. The staying focused part is my challenge.

  6. Hmmm, I'll have to think about it - I just asked my husband, he said perseverance. Visiting sounds much more fun!! Can't even imagine being covered in Vicks - yick! :)

  7. I'm a Capricorn and I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean but I would say one of my strengths is my optimism. I always feel like everything is going to work out. Can't wait to see that buffalo check, lady!!

  8. I'm like Kimberly, a Capricorn, and my strength lies in being ambitious and working all out for it. I think it's an advantage mostly, but sometimes can 'push' people away. I love the thought of rustic and checks Kim, the wait is a killer!

  9. Great discussion, I think my strength is big ideas, i love to plan things but don't always follow through. I love thinking of possibilities and I genuinely love people.

  10. omg ~ I am smiling and laughing and so enjoying the message and the spirit of this post! As a fellow Libra (Libran?), I relate; all to well, the visiting, the indecisiveness....the love of many things, however seemingly dissimilar...the drinking...well maybe the drinking isn't about being a Libra! Anyway, you are refreshin and IT is refreshing to be encouraged to think about what we're each good at and maybe even what we'd like to be better at. I too, am real good at "visiting". Being from Alabama, I'm real good at talking during those lengthy visits and I'd like to be even better at listening, both personally and professionally. From a career perspective....I can select carpet or paint colors or case goods in my sleep.....just don't ask me to cook you spaghetti or bake a cake. Well you CAN, and I WILL (because as a Libra, I'm also very kind and giving), but you just may not want to actually EAT it! Design, decorating, creating, aesthetic fine tuning....THAT I can do as naturally as I breathe. Thanks for a great blog and a lovely post! Always a pleasure. TJF Design

  11. My husband says I'm good at encouraging others....
