A Few New Things Around Here...

  Well life is good these days having my hunny back home and worrying A LOT LESS, and so I went to Home Sense to enjoy what I love doing best which is decorating of course! I found a few treasures including this gorgeous ornate lacquered mirror....hmmm now to figure out where to put it LOL!
A while ago Holly and I found these gems on a thrifting adventure (I haven't killed them yet hee hee)!
I LOVE this antique looking iron coat rack!
Remember my slipcovers I was having made for our kitchen stools? Well here they are~ Rachel Ashwell inspired loose fitting linen slipcovers! They actually look a lot nicer in person! Kim (the lady who made them) was so sweet to ONLY charge me for the fabric and not for the labour since they took a little longer than expected (I insisted on paying but she refused no matter what I said)...I love them, they are beautiful Kim!
I also have something else I'm REALLY excited about...as if life could get any more exciting right now... Nathaniel bought a truck the other day!!! You know what this means right??? I now have the FREEDOM to scour the city for goodies to paint (Holly...this spells a lot of fun this summer for us!!...now we can get twice as much in a load if we need to)! The day Nathaniel brought home the truck I actually took it on its maiden voyage to a thrift store and picked up a great old desk I'm in the process of painting...stay tuned I'll be posting the transformation as soon as I pick out the new hardware!~

Thank God you are back writing on your blog. I totally understand why you took a break but I was lost without it! Even though we talk lots, I miss you so much and often feel like I am missing out on important things in your life...your blog is a perfect way for me to get a glimps.
Love you!

Love love love the mirror! Which HomeSense were you at? I need to see if there is another one ASAP!! I have been looking forever for one like that, in white! If you can't find a home for it, I'd gladly take it off your hands! :)
