Help!

Okay, I've tolerated this cheap looking staircase in the entry of my house long enough! Do you think I should have it torn down? What about those tacky lamps? And the ugly carpeting? Oh, and the pots of greenery. What about those? Do you think I should put them out on the curb? Should I ask the servants to help me choose a new paint color too? Do you think that would help make this space a little bit classier? Do you think those tile floors are too shiny? What about that red velvet settee? And the planter that blocks my view of the three story conservatory? Do you think that should go too? Do you think this is really my house? Do you think maybe it's April Fool's Day and everybody else has posted something clever and funny and I'm hurrying too fast and trying too hard to compete even though everybody can see right through me and knows this is the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York and that's me about five years ago thinking I'm so cool acting like the lady of the house and suggesting the place needs a remodeling job?

Is that what everybody thinks? Really?

  3. Yes I thought you looked like you belonged there, you shouldn't have told us otherwise. I guess the you wouldn't have an Aprils Fool's prank though.

  4. Okay, you had me at first. I was thinking SHEESH! No wonder she has time and money to do all those nifty crafts and things with the grandkids! :-D Great April Fools' Day "gotcha"! Thanks for linking it in the GRAND Social! (And I had to click on yours FIRST, because of the plea for help.) You nutty grandma, you!

  7. Good one, J! Congratulations on your runner up win as Favorite Grandparent Blog! Of course, I think you should have been first place as you do it all by yourself (and looking pretty darn good while doing it!) rather than with a group of Gmas! Readers' Choice makes the rules; but pretty neat to come in second!
    You DO have the best crafts and cutsie things around!

  8. Personally I think you should ask the servants to put up tea so we could all visit you in "your" lovely home. Hee Hee What I am wondering, my deah (we are after all, English today, right) is how you manage to craft so much without getting "your" lovely home messy - you must be one clever crafter - and fibber too Hee hee.

  9. THANK YOU LADIES!....for all your fun, happy comments! Actually I think my whole (real!) house could fit inside the living room of this place! And our cats love to nap on the steps of our "royal" staircase. I think they may be trying to kill us both! If I abruptly stop posting, well that may be the reason why!
    Happy April Fool's Day everyone!

  15. You had me going for a second. I am under the impression that some bloggers live that way. Although I will admit, it's not usually the grandparent bloggers. ;)
