I really need a big opinion.
Please tell me you have one.
And please tell me that:
(a) you are willing to share it
(b) you specialize in big opinions
(c) that actually….your specialty includes railroad signs
Remember the homeless railroad sign?
I know you were waiting with anxious anticipation to see where I put it.
Well….it ended up finding four homes in the farmhouse.
Four places where I love it.
Four place that are perfect for a little bit of transportational art.
And I can’t decide.
I need some assistance.
Can you please help a locationally-challenged-railroad-sign friend out?
Option 1: Above the mantel in the family room
pro: It makes my $1 cement block artwork look like it’s one step away from hanging in the Guggenheim.
con: Is it just me or does the gray make it look pink? Not the good kind of pink. The kind of pink that makes me think of indigestion.
Option 2: Above the chalkboard in the family room
pro: It makes the chalkboard look like it belongs on the station wall.
con: I accidentally knocked Monday for a loop when I put the sign up there and from this picture it doesn’t look like Monday has really recovered. Update: as I write this post….Monday has jumped ship and is currently on the ground.
Option 3: Between the curtains on the wall with the french doors
pro: That space over the french doors finally has something in it.
con: Just because it’s something…..doesn’t make it right. And I feel like it looks like the finials are pointing awkwardly at the sign.
Option 4: Over the closet door in the back hallway
pro: It distracts the eye from the smoke detector.
con: It feels a little lost up there in the space over the door. Maybe it’s the proximity to the erstwhile mentioned smoke detector, but there’s something about this that says too much “I’ve been working” and not enough “railroad.”
Now you’ve seen each of the options and heard all the pros and cons.
And I want your opinion.
Not just a little bit.
And I know you are saying to yourself that you aren’t really all about polls because you think your voice won’t be heard and there are way more important things going on in the world right now like Tom and Katie’s break-up and you are still upset because you voted for Jessica Sanchez for American Idol and you have never fully recovered.
But the thing is…..the fate of a railroad sign is in your hands.
PS Don’t forget. The giveaway for the smocked jute drapes is still going on here.
PPS When my husband read this post he rolled his eyes and said, “Are you really throwing this to the nation?” Ummmmm……of course.
PPPS I wish I had a fifth option just to vote for all of us to use the word erstwhile at least once today
