Remember the post I did about painting my front door? I mentioned listening to “sweet baby birds chirping”, and how pleasant it was. Well, looks can be deceiving, because these “sweet little birds” left something extremely unpleasant behind. This is what the foyer looked like one week ago:
And this is what my foyer looks like now:
I am sure you are wondering how baby birds and my empty foyer are related. One word: MITES (gross)! While I was visiting my parents in Florida, the baby birds flew away from the nest, leaving their little mite friends without anything warm to live on. So, they decided that our home was the next best thing. They took over my burlap runner, lamp, plant, and pretty much everything else in my foyer. My husband had to throw everything away, and spend hours killing the ones that were in the house. While I do feel bad that he had to do this alone, I have to admit that I am so glad I was out of town for this disgusting event. When he called to tell me that he had to throw all of my things on the table away, I thought he was lying. At first I was sad, but I then decided to look at it as an opportunity to do something different and fun with the space. I will be sure to share all of the new, mite free finds!
