it didn’t take much

bonjour friends! tonite is my first evening in my own home, i can blog uninterrupted all nite if i want! i hope to get over to see you and say hi. i’m glad you’re here!

well, even tho i’m not even thinking about opening another store, i can’t resist daydreaming about it when i see something special. then reality sets in and i say, enjoy your freedom!

still, it’s cute isn’t it?

well we’ve been having a love affair with our new town, pretending it’s the summer of ’72, (this statue is in the center of town, mom, do you love it)?

days have been filled finding resources for fabrics, visiting upholsterers and doing runs to ikea and target and home depot more than i’d like to admit…of course it’s all soooo much fun!

these canvases were some of the great art pieces that ikea had, i thought they were both powerful and whimsical

as for chez moi, my floors came out better than i ever dreamed. i don’t even want rugs and thought i’d have to cover them completely!

but something may be missing…

till i can figure out what i’ll keep on working and nesting

and working hard to be organic as challenged by carol…i did get solar lights for the walk, organic sheets and detergents. there’s a lot to think about but i like it!

and of course liz has been a decorating fool and got even more yellow pillows! more of her great taste tomorrow!

    It has been 8 years since I have had a wide open space to decorate. There is something so wonderful about it, isn’t there Claudia? To just stand there and imagine what to do.

    Ohhh the possibilities……

    It is much harder to do that with a fully decorated place.

    I have a harder time seeing the forest for the trees.

    Wish I had a new place to decorate…but I HATE MOVING :)

    I’ll live vicariously through you.

    The floors look amazing Claudia – who knew?! p.s. I’ve heard bamboo sheets and pillowcases are supposed to help you stay cool – not sure if that is true or not?…
