I can’t believe it’s 69 degrees in August in the south! These past couple of days have been super chilly but it’s forced me to stay inside and put the place together. It’s slowly coming along, but I have a lot to get done. I still need to decorate more. Before getting my work done, I had an afternoon snack: Pretzels, chocolate cherry yogurt, almonds, and coffee. I made a trip to the farmers market this weekend and stocked up the fruit bowl. Not only does fruit taste great, it’s the best kind of decor.
My friend, Emilee, finally made it down here! Her and Enzo are my new roomies:) It’s like a mini grumples!
I love these dogs!
My room has so much work left. I need to make a headboard for the bed, get paintings for the walls, possible paint, get matching lamps for each of the end tables, refinish the end tables, and get a reading chair.
Having my own place and not worrying about where I’ll be going next has taken a huge weight off my shoulders. I feel so calm and at ease now.
Before I forget, my duvet covers are from Ikea.
I’m in the process of painting some canvases for one side of the bedroom. I’m going to either add a city to this, or a black tree. What do you think?
Grumples loves to drag every single toy out instead of keeping them in the basket. It’s our little game. He’s already done it twice this afternoon.
Some of you were asking about my bookends. I got them at Homegoods (of course) Remember the wine & painting class I did in Arizona? I put up the paintings!
This one was just for fun because I love elephants. I took the original drawing and blew it up for my wall…and something else exciting with it 😉 You’ll find out soon!
My parents gave me their mirror from Italy years ago and I’ve been so sad that it’s been in the storage unit. I’m glad we’ve reunited! I love the gold, too. If you can’t tell, I’m a gold person.
I also have all of my cozy throw blankets for the movie marathons. If you have any headboard ideas, let me know! I’m torn on what to do.
I made an overnight pulled bourbon chicken in my new crockpot thanks to Windsorstore and can’t wait to share that recipe with you. You’ll LOVE it! So stay tuned for that!
