But before you go visit her over at Living Proof Ministries, let me just say that this post was a follow-up to one that she did on moving a simple table from behind her sofa to against a wall. This was the FIRST time in 25 years that she EVER moved a piece of furniture in her home!!!! I simply cannot imagine as I am a habitual mover/rearranger - and have been since I was about nine years old. My mom never knew what to expect when she came home from her job as a school speech therapist. I moved knick-knacks, chairs, sofas, side tables, a piano ... and on and on. The piano, BTW, was a challenge. I remember grabbing one corner at a time and shoving with all my might, budging it one inch here and one inch there - over and over and over until it reached the site I'd deemed "perfect". Really, it is a passion of mine - and I've spent time in MANY of my friends homes redecorating for them - or staging their homes for sale. I find it ridiculously FUN - and SO much cheaper than buying new stuff!
So, anyway, I found it incredibly odd, to say the least, that Mrs. Moore had only just discovered that you could actually move furniture from one place to the other! (I find it so refreshing to literally see things in a different light - it translates into refreshment of my very spirit!) However, her post from today reveals that she is not alone ... and neither am I! She observes that the women, at least in her blog community are "comprised of formidable teams of both movers and immovers (the false noun form of the adjective “immovable.”)" Furthermore (this is SO interesting) "immovers appear to prefer daytime and movers are undeniably night owls. (As are vampires.)"
Indeed, I am a NIGHT OWL (I prefer this to vampire!) AND I am a MOVER! For more fascinating insights on decorating/redecorating ... visit Mrs. Moore right here!
PS - You'll find that in her post, she is puzzled over what to call the sofa table now that it is no longer behind the sofa. I suggest to her that it is a "console table" as per definition a console table is "A small table, often with curved legs resembling consoles, designed to be set against a wall."
Anyhoodle (I borrowed that from my real life pal, Shelly, over at "I like the way you do ..." - cute, right? You can borrow it, too ... I think ... I didn't ask. I guess I stole it.) ... but, anyhoodle, enjoy a good laugh care of Beth Moore!
Just for fun:

BTW - Are YOU a Mover or a Non-mover?
