And so it begins...

Bed delivered. Mattress on its way. Three duvets purchased. Three duvets will probably be returned.

to say things have been a little topsy turvy around here the last month is putting it mildly. I won't get into what has been happening, but as I come out of the haze, it's really put a lot of things into perspective. first of all, I have an amazing husband. I don't say it enough. I don't know what I would do without him, literally. My family and friends aren't too shabby either. Being surrounded by so many wonderful people makes me realize how lucky I am. Tough times have a way of making things clearer, and the things that aren't, well, I just have to remember this....

Apologies to the author of this, I pinned it and now the only link is to Google. 

During this time, my design plans have taken a back seat. The house is at a stand still. So I'm putting it out there in cyberspace to keep myself on task. These are the things I want to accomplish in the next month:

  • Buffet/sideboard for dining room
  • New light fixture for dining room
  • Floor lamp for family room
  • New kitchen calendar/frame
  • Bedding for guest room
  • Bedding for our room
  • Hang art/photos around the house
  • Make wedding polaroid collage
  • Spray paint the backlog of items I have accumulating in the garage

Lay your weary head to rest...

I won't be cryin' no more (shout out to Kansas) because we just ordered a new bed. No more jockeying for space, no more elbowing each other in the face. We ordered a KING! bed during Macy's Labor Day Sale.

I've been dreaming of having an upholstered bed and this one is so luxurious looking. 

The rolled headboard. The nailhead trim. The shimmery fabric. It's luxe without being girly. 

Now I'm on a mission for the perfect bedding. Any suggestion for bedding shops or online stores that are outside the usual suspects?
