Short people got.......

For those that do know me, I take great pride in my home decorating abilities. I change paint colors often and have been known to sew new pilows for the couches more than once. I don't really know how to sew, but I try. Perhaps the fact that the last ones I made are basically dsintagrating at the seam is a sign I may need to read the sewing machine manual before trying again.

Anywho, as I said I take great pride in my home. All the pictures are hung just so, every decoration has a specific place and a specific reason for being there. I don't like bare walls, they need to be dressed up. So we have a few wall hangings in most rooms of the house.

Recently, a friend came over to the house and had a very interesting question. He wondered why we put our pictures so low on the walls. I did not know what he meant so he explained that the picture groupings seemed to be lower then normal on the walls. He said he thought they were supposed to be just above eye level. Then thinking about it broke into laughter. You see, I am 5 foot 5 inches tall... or short! So too me, all of the pictures are just above eye level. For that matter so are all of the sinks, counters, cupboards...... :)

A very funny experience that I thought all could enjoy..... HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

P.S. All pictures have been moved up a few inches on the walls!!!

I just watched a home decorating show on HGTV and they said that one of the biggest decorating mistakes people make in their homes is.... they hang pictures too high! So maybe it has nothing to do with your height - you just have a great eye for design!!

Mike and I had this very same conversation when we were decorating our house. How do you find eye level when I'm 5'3" and he is 6'3"!?!

I'm excited that you have a blog. I've linked you on mine. I hope that's OK.
