We broke 100,000!

I offer you each an award of loveliness.

I enjoy that you all stop in from day to day or time to time. It probably means more to me than it should but I appreciate it, nevertheless. Your comments are special and your interest in art/sewing/scrapbooking/kids, etc. is what makes this online place a place that I want to come back to again and again.

I made something yesterday that I posted about HERE.
After
Here is a shot of another Craigslist score.
Craigslist Find
And one for the ladies...
Magnum

Our mice are moving out, the mosquitos were sprayed, and we have pretty flowers on our porch.

Its getting better.

I love the wood grain project, I have too many particle board ikea pieces that are just calling for some of that fab contact paper! The nightstand is an awesome find too! The house is looking oh so perfect and catalog-y!

That face is so adorable. He is such a cutie pie!!

Holly said...

I'm SO LOVING that shelving unit that you DIY'ed for S's room! I might just have to attempt something like that for Luka. He is almost to the age of saying farewell to the crib, and we'll have to buy some new furniture for his room. You score so well off of Craigslist...we don't ever seem to have much cool stuff in our area. :0(

I don't know if you heard from Elsie, but you should come see my news! (on my blog) :)
I hope little S had a good 2nd birthday!

I think I'm in love with your son.

Wow your decor is just beautiful! I went to a part on Haight & Divisadero on Saturday night and thought of you. The decor was incredible. I wanted to take pictures but it didn't seem like it was that type of party where I could roam around the flat and take photos.

They had this really beautiful antique chair that they reupholstered in a shiny, green vinyl. There was this really unique chandelier with extra large light bulbs hanging kinda like a big octopus. So much else to describe.

Glad your mice are leaving!

TheresaK said...
