Afternoon Mind Dump

Actually, more like digital camera unloading.
Hooked up my new little SLR wonder and found a few things to share.

Like these antique andirons I scored for $35 at the giant Cambridge Antique Market. I’ve been trolling for some to replace our broken ones, but they were all at least $150. Score one for my wallet.


My little DIY project I finally finished today- pasting grass cloth wallpaper over a warped/cracked door that would need a custom replacement made because of it’s dimensions ($$$). Now it looks clean and funky- a very easy way to fix a flawed facade.

My current all white mantle scape. Andrew says I’ve become a hater of color- not true- I just wanted something serene. I especially love my little white ceramic bird on a pedestal by Victoria Hagan that I picked up at Target (on the left).

I knew there was a reason I keep all my old bedding ensembles in trash bags in the basement. I pulled out some old embroidered blue and white Euro shams and threw them together with a 5 year old PB duvet cover and a 3 year old Hable Construction pillow and voila. It looks purposeful. Good thing I can be a pack rat.

Sad. A green foo dog I totally should have bought, also at the Cambridge Antiques Market.

And on a gloomy day, I had to buy myself some coral and pink roses at Trader Joe’s for $7.99. And a box of the best chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches on the PLANET.
Really, they are like crack.
