Proof that something has happened

Do you see that! That is a bed with bedding and a nightstand yes can you see someone might be able to in fact sleep in that room.
The living room doesn't look so good, but we will be working on that one tomorrow. Anyway the walls need to be painted and lamps need to be added.
I just love seeing my little belongings starting to fill up the corners of this little house. This is the office/craft room, ahhh it is just going to be so cute!

I have been thinking about mail today. I have a little project that I am going to be starting that will involve sending letters among other things and realizing that I after almost a year I know what my address will be for what I hope is a good while.
So address labels are surely needed - see how my mind works I must have cute address labels (all of these labels are from tiny prints). I think that I am kinda in love with the sweet silhouette stamp at top. So cute!

I guess I am just letting myself be distracted after my very long week that I am still recovering from three days later. Oh well I'm off to line dresser drawers with pretty flowered wrapping paper. Small joys!

Give me Liberty

Gosh sorry about all the bad puns and cheesy ripoffs I've been using lately, but I always have loved puns!
Now the real subject of the post the much anticipated, by me anyway, Liberty of London line has arrived at Target. And sadly from what I can tell most has also departed. When I stumbled on it Sunday I ran into women with carts full of patterned goodness. Then when another shopper told me they were already totally sold out of most of the home goods online, I just had to snag a few things. I picked up the small frame at the top of the post as well as the shade on the lamp below.

I think it will find a home in my living room. I only wish that curtains, rugs or sheets had made it into the collection, I have been longing for living room curtains sewn out of this Liberty print for a long time now. Sigh someday!

You light up my life

Now that the dust is settling and it is starting to feel like a real live human could live inside these walls I have turned my thoughts to a new fixture for the kitchen. I think we (and by we I mean my mother and me) have weeded it down to one of the following:This one is from Schoolhouse Electric I love the interest that the black adds.

This one is from Rejuvenation and reminds me of one of my favorite things vintage Pyrex!

And yes of course they are both yellow, are you picking up on a theme?

Moving right along

Things have been going very well over at the little house. This is a shot of the nice clean basement it is the same space as this one:

Worlds of difference isn't it. And that is just the tip of the ice burg. My family was actually able to have our weekly get together for Sunday dinner at my house! (even if someone had to sit on a step ladder) It is really starting to feel like a place I might live and not just spend a great deal of time/energy/money on. Hey by next weekend there might even be a bed and a couch there, isn't that going to be great!

There wil be packing

I have a confession to make:
I hate packing. I hate packing for a trip, I hate packing my stuff up for the day and I really hate packing to move. I have been "working" on packing for two months now and I am in no way ready to actually move. Last night I though I'd get so much done, but then I packed a whole box of books and had to look high and low for my packing tape and then I lost steam. Isn't it bad. Uggg I hate packing.
