relax, it's going to be okay

finally things are coming together, at least for the guest room! i have been creating a very relaxing, calm like feel and today one of the finishing touches has just been added. i have been searching for the above lamp every where, i wasn't yet desperate to pay pottery barn $130 per lamp and thank the Lord i didn't, because i found the perfect fit at Marshall's for only $70 each. Marshall's never seem to let me down... Although they do keeping me waiting but it's always worth the wait!

out at the barn

as you guys know from earlier post i have a bit of an obsession with pottery barn. i just love the inviting and comfortable looks they create. yesterday i attended a decorating class at Pottery Barn. It was very informative but nothing the average woman doesn't know. the topics include, thread count {Egyptian cotton is the best}, furniture arrangement, lighting, mixing textures {my all time favorite way of decorating}, dressing your dresser, fabric no no's {don't hang a silk curtain with casual cotton bedding}, and so on.... one thing that i did learn is, pottery barn will give you a private consultation either before they open or after they close. If you have questions about arranging your furniture or setting the right mood throughout your home with lighting, the barn is there for you...

it's a domino effect!

what is the world coming to? first house and garden, then blue print, now domino? this is crazy folks! what are we to do, really? i suppose now we will have to eat dinner at the dinning table and talk to each other! it's a sad day, month, year! i certainly hope president obama can get us out of this funk, so regular folks can get back to consuming stuff we don't need!
