Oh, right – I owe you an announcement

In CategoryAdventures in Decorating, Navel Gazing

Sorry I didn’t post on Monday, I’ve been so busy packing I haven’t had a minute.


Jim told me the other day that I should start packing and I burst into tears and cried, “Hormonal Things Are Happening and if you want SOMEbody to do something USEFUL, I suggest you go to the store and get me some chocolate!” and then I ran away.

Not really, but sort of.


Jim’s no fool. He’s not necessarily a saint, either, because he had a pile just as big for his own snack drawer.

I packed two boxes today,* though. Go me! And then we had to take a break and go to Chick fil A. Because obviously.

In any event, we closed on the house a week ago, and it all went very smoothly (thankfully), and the title company closing facilitator person commented that she hadn’t seen an interest rate that low in a while, which was very gratifying indeed. It could have been a lie, but I’ll take it.

The sellers still haven’t turned over possession to us, though (hopefully this weekend), so I’ve been using the MakeRoom thingy at Urban Barn and creating all kinds of idea boards at Polyvore. I am nothing if not an efficient manager of my time.

In other news, one of my knitting pals, Crafty Friend, had this fun idea to rent a space in an antique booth together and see if we could support our thrift store habit. So we did.**




All the cute stuff is mine, and all the OH MY GOSH I MUST HAVE THAT IMMEDIATELY stuff is hers (like that super adorable chicken painting that I probably need).

She makes her own funky jewelry, too, and is starting an etsy store. I’ll let you know when it’s up and running.

In the meantime, come over and buy a turquoise table. No pressure.

    Moving is the worst. I used to think we’d only live her a few years and then try to trade up houses. Now I think, eh, they can bury me in the backyard someday.

    LOVE the booth. So wish I could come shop there.

    1. You’re booth is absolutely adorable. I love the blue desk.
    2. I think that one can never have too many paint swatches.
    3. Are you done moving yet because I will cease to function if you don’t write another Random Monday soon.

    Oh man, I really want that lamp in the last photo! Want to ship to Canada? And I used to own a typewriter exactly like that.

    Jim sounds like a smart man. My own husband has taken to sneaking emergency hormone supplies into the house and hiding them for just such an occasion. He thinks it may save his life one day, and he may be right.
