I love that quote and I want the same thing..........but I think money is necessary for some great moments to come about:)
Like the quote and how it's done, but I'm really intrigued by what's in the bowl. Are those super balls, gumballs?
Dont't know how much this is meant to be an ad for Rowe furniture, but I have to say this. We have had a Rowe sofa, loveseat and ottoman for 12 years and they are one of the best purchases we've ever made. Extremely well made, has held up against 2 little boys, 3 cats, lots of snacking. Highly recommended.
I'd like to do both.
I find that quote so poignant. Being 'wonderful' is a judgement that comes from others, and is, therefore, outside of your own control. When your sense of self depends on others, you just can't win in the long run. Poor Marilyn, such a lost child.
Yes. Her life was heart breaking proof that these are not words to live by.
Meh. Words of Wisdom on my wall quoted from a drug addicted starlet who died from overdose caused by over indulgence? Nah. If I'm quoting people on my walls it's people who actually make a difference in the world, people who are/were selfless & uplift others' spirit. The quote I keep on the bathroom mirror is: "When someone shows you who they are- believe them" ~ Maya Angelou. On the wall of my kitchen is "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated."~ Mahatma Gandhi. And on the wall of my office is the quote: "Sometimes, we hold onto the things that God himself is trying to tear apart”~ Tyler Perry (as a reminder to myself to let things go that no longer enrich my life). These are so much more profound than wanting to "be wonderful".
I came here to post the same thing! We have a Rowe sofa and loveseat that are 10 years old and in great shape. Very well made and comfortable. I would love to get a new sofa that is more up-to-date and stylish but there is nothing wrong with our Rowes. Love them!
If we're going to blame actresses for Hollywood being the horribly sexist place it is, count me out. I don't know the context of the quote, but it seems to me it could just as easily have been a statement of spiritual or professional ambition. I do think the record reflects that she was not materialistic, which I happen to admire.And addiction can happen to anyone. Knocking on wood.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
