from house to home

liz is moving into her house! it’s a block from the beach and me, so of course i’m in charge of decor :p

above is her inspiration pillow, everything will be muy tropicale! it has all the amenities we never dreamed of when we both lived in new york…washer and dryer, garage, driveway, and oh yeah, butterflies, a yard and 3 bedrooms!

and look what just happened next door…

it’s a bit smaller and i like that…and the awnings are navy! how nautical

a real fixer upper but something to think about anyway! it’s always fun to look dream! as for ‘the secret’, well i’m at the part where they say ‘i can do that, i can afford that’ instead of the usual internal dialogue i won’t mention. guess we’ll just have to see what lies ahead. they say we’ll be surprised in more ways than ever imagined. how true! i know this book is super hokey but i do love this stuff!

in the meantime i’m taking my own advice to add a little something each day even if it’s super simple, and took out all my gran’s vintage sheets, got green apples just because they matched,

made a curtain for the door, (read: hung a piece of fabric from a great resource i discovered yesterday…every fabric was $5 a yard)!

and have my extremely low maintenace air plant friends

ok back to work! happy weekend!
