I actually accomplished a lot, since I couldn't just hang out and Hulu one more episode of Angel Season 3...
Instead I found the perfect rug for my living room, took a gamble with some rather outrageous window treatments, picked up more paint, masking tape, curtain rods, and picture nails, hit Value Village for some seriously awesome vintage throw pillows, took my dry cleaning and alterations in, mailed the last of my christmas presents (hush, now), and paid my PGE bill. I feel very grown up. Also very broke. But the house is really, really starting to come together, and I'm so excited to show you what I've got so far...
Here's a little sneak peek at my bathroom...Its actually finished as of last night, but I took these photos a few days ago, right after I installed the window treatment. I'm in love with the quality of light in there now. The pink walls are very golden and glowy in the morning, and fade to a pale lavender by night. The glossy off-white trim keeps everything really fresh. Man, paint is the greatest.
These earrings were so amazing that I had to buy them, even though I don't have pierced ears!
Ok, so I've really been digging a sort of borrowed-from-the-boys look all week long; Androgynous styling with hyper-feminine details, and simply pretty hair and makeup. It feels fresh and sexy, and just a wee bit scrappy. These jeans have built in suspenders. I die. The field behind me is not even a block away from my Grandma's house. It used to be a favorite haunt of wild geese and marsh birds of all kinds, but now its being graded to become a soccer field. I'm torn. Wild geese? Or sexy soccer boys?
