An Apology and Exciting News

I'm sorry about the video fiasco.
It turns out the mini home movie from my last post can only be seen on a laptop or desktop.
It's a video of Hubs mocking my continuous arranging of our home
 played out by Disney princesses.
Funny{har har}.
But really it is and you should check it.

Also
some exciting news to report,
I was officially asked to design an office space for a neighbor friend who works from his home.
When I say 'official' I mean he offered me money.
As in a real job.
As in getting paid to do what I love and obsess over even when I'm not getting paid.
I've helped numerous friends with their homes but always felt silly taking money from them for it.
But now I feel it's not so silly.
It's what I want to do with myself...hopefully more so after kids are older.
Also, reading this helped.

Large's room redo is almost complete.
Her new bedding and curtains came last week and they look amazing with the new wall color.
I'm a little jealous because her bedroom is now way cooler than mine,
but I've already got ideas for a new master suite swirling around in the noggin.

This is Large's bedding.


This is her new wall color.

This is a decorative accent pillow I bought on etsy.

I also found a vintage bentwood Thonet chair for $35, 
I'll say it again...$35,
that I'm painting mint green to go with the desk I scored on eBay for $99.
I love eBay more than most people I know.
True story.

And, as long as I'm divulging everything, this is my new favorite table topper 
which I don't own but someday hope to.

  4. I feel you, girl. I recently got my first check for work (I've previously done trades with people only), and it was thrilling. It also makes you beholden to someone, and you can't just tell them to 'stop changing their minds already and pick something!' But, you get the idea. It's the bests. As in plural. Congratulations. Upward, shall we?
