I've been admittedly lazy about showing pictures of our new house, which though we put a good amount of work into when we first moved in, slowly started to taper off. The living room I feel pretty good about and will one day post pictures of that, but the bedroom has always made me a little crazy. It's tiny to start, and it's blue. Very blue. After painting part of our living room, I got lazy and decided the bedroom was fine as is, plus I couldn't convince Will that tearing everything out of our bedroom, sleeping on an air mattress, and painting all weekend sounded like fun. Fair enough.

But there's hope! I've had amazing second hand luck lately, and my bedside table and lamp prove this. The table I found at Value Village for $20, and after a little sanding and stain, it look good as new. The lamp I found at the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, which is a rad little flea market we stumbled upon last weekend. If you haven't been there, please go, you won't be sorry. SO much good stuff, and all reasonably priced. That lamp was $24, I also got a set of 4 vintage bar glasses for $8 and she threw in a wood plate I was eyeballing.


Alright not the best pictures of the table, as you can't really see the legs, but you get the idea. I'm just excited that my bedside table is no longer a chair. And a drawer and a lamp?? We're growing up around here.

How the hell is it friday already?

Annnnnd yet another week has flown by. Remember when I used to update this thing? Also remember how I said I was going to bring my camera with me all weekend and take lots of pictures? Turns out I'm a liar, not only did I not take any pictures, I didn't even take it with me anywhere. FAIL.

Oh well, on to pretty things. I'm working on a fun project right now that involves creating patterns, so I've been doing some inspiration research and stumbled upon this tumblr, among others. If you're needing a little creative boost, I would recommend it.

That's all for now. I would promise to update this next week with photos of my fun filled weekend but that would probably be a lie...again.

This week flew by, it's been so busy around the DEI headquarters, which is of course a good thing, but I'm whooped. The weather has been amazing lately, and sadly it's not supposed to last through the weekend, but I'm making a personal goal to get out and take some pictures, and do some backyard work. Once it's all done I'm determined to post some pictures...

Anywho, happy Friday, we can all exhale.

I just saw this thermo-sensitive stationary on Blog Milk and instantly had an inspiration overload, just THINK of how many awesome things you could do.

As the weather gets nicer I'm getting inspired to spruce up our backyard. Hard as I try I just can't find a good spot for a hammock, but something like this little guy might do just the trick. Now the challenge of finding one that isn't crazy expensive...
