the homemade headboard
what a gift to have a domestic husband! i have always felt bad that i don't enjoy cooking, scrapbooking, or making wooden signs. the thought of sowing on a button gives me anxiety. in fact before i moved to california i made my mom give me a lesson, we practiced on rags. (what would i do without her!) the truth is this blog would not even be in effect if it weren't for colt, it is just too much for the uncreative tara to handle. so when i had my credit card out ready to buy a new bed (spending money, something I am good at) colton told me he would just make me a headboard. well, this isn't the first time colton has told me to not buy something that he could just make. the phrase "i could make that" is heard quite often in anthropologie when i pull out a lovely little skirt or sweater. i have yet to have colton hand make me a beautiful embroidered blouse, but he did do the headboard and it looks pretty swanky.
p.s. i wanted some black and white pillow cases made, i sent the fabric home last week for the other domestic person in my life to sow-calli
