A couple of weeks ago I posted that I had some painting to do... well, I finally took a few hours this week to do it!
(sigh) Our little piece of rest. I <3 this color. I'm so glad I didn't chicken out and go lighter. I knew I chose the right one when hubby beat me home and called me just to say how much he loved it - breathed a sigh of relief even upon walking in!
...and to be honest, I've been collecting little bits for the last few years to create a special place for our room. The lamps and shades were bought separately, and the sake set was a little find on it's own. I love piecing something together that feels like every part belongs, and is loved.
On another note - I was actually able to scrap this afternoon! For me! When I do personal stuff, I really tend to lean toward the "less is more" attitude. I like the layers, but sometimes I just want to see the pictures and the story.
It was good to have a few minutes in the midst of everything to just play. Also took the boys to the park and enjoyed a Jamaican breakfast from my lovely mother-in-law today. Mmmm... I might have to scrap that some time!
I'm also busy working away on my fourth and final entry for the "Capture the Flag" contest! We were given an inspiration piece to work from, so I printed my choice, left it sitting where I could see, then I put something together as it pops into my head. I'm amazed at how quickly this method seems to be helping me progress through a fairly large assignment... I'll be sure to share a link when the full kit is ready! It's due on Friday...
Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
