> Tres Chere: We Need To Talk

We Need To Talk

It's you not me....I mean it's me...not you
I'm just not that into you anymore.

There are just too many parts of you for me to understand.  


I know you are broken into a million pieces over this.


It's time for us to move on.


We need a fresh start.

Look what I found to replace you.

Three Body Pillows and two packs of sash rods.

We cut holes through the top for the sash rod and hung the curtains. No sewing required! The perfect curtain.

We added the crystals from our Ex (The Lamp) and a ribbon to tie them back to let the light in.



After everything is said and done...there will always be pieces of you hanging around.





We took the top two pieces from the Lamp and hung them upside down to create our "Faux" chandelier.


 
It was spray painted with "Red Pepper" by Krylon.


Once it dried we put it back together added the crystals and then hung it from the ceiling.

 
Pieces of you still remain in my heart.

Until our paths cross again...

To Be Continued......
