Wish somewhat granted! Got a text from my boss before walking out the door to take the day off. Of course I won’t really be napping all day, but it does give me some time to catch up on emails and get some things in order around the house I neglected this weekend (and make a yummy meal on a Monday!).
To celebrate, here are some things I found lovely, inspiring or just cool over the weekend.
These knitted Eames chairs from Plain Living. I love that it doesn’t permanently alter the original structure, and the poppy red is wonderful too.
These beautiful fall foliage inspired floral arrangements from Design Sponge. It’s inspired me to spruce up our dining room table today. It may be too late for most of these gorgeous colors, but we still have some pretty oranges and browns in our yard.
These original “stormscapes” by Stormscape Studios. I love buying original art. And these little paintings capture my favorite type of weather (dark skies make the landscape look so vibrant).
Old fashioned Rag-Rolls tutorial on A Beautiful Mess. I would love to try this on a weekend. Maybe my hair would learn to hold a curl.
I want to learn to quilt. Someday. Untill I do, I’ll keep practicing and fantacizing about gorgeous quilts like this one by Brandeye.
Have a wonderful Monday.
I would much rather pile into bed with Jared and the dog and nap all day today. The light is so perfectly soft and the house is so wonderfully warm. Instead I need to bundle up and trudge to my day job. At least there is no snow yet.
In other news, we FINALLY got the living room light up (with a little help from Jared’s dad). It was all the way back in April I was trying to decide which fixture to get. Well it’s up and it looks great. We now have light in our living room for the first time since we moved in. We still need to sand and paint the ceiling, but at least we have light. Painting is next on our list. We have decided to save up our extra money this winter to take care of the bathroom this spring. It will be our first BIG project since the floors.
Hope November is treating you well.
