Puppy ~ Little Chloe

*I have fallen off the face of the earth*

But I got a new cute puppy! :) Meet Chloe! She is only 8weeks old in these photos. They were taken in October 2008.

I never even check my email anymore! My job the last year has consumed my life. I hardly spend anytime working on my projects around my house. So, sitting down to type a long blog entry and uploading pictures just doesn't happen anymore. :(
I do miss it!!!! Hopefully someday I can get back to the interior design/blog world.



I waited, and waited, and waited.....

Its finally here!!!!! My own IKEA! (Only 9 miles from my house!) Going to IKEA has helped me to get back into the "decorating spirit"! We finally get to furnish our Master Bedroom. I ended up NOT liking the orange and white IKEA bedding in person. I did fall in love with this though.....


In the photo above, I have black MALM furnitire from IKEA. Well, we aren't getting black. We went with white. That is what I really wanted. My bedroom is a mess right now. Once I start getting it together I will snap some photos. Here are some cute little chairs that I have bought from the antique mall where I work.

My work will be having its GRAND OPENING the weekend of April 25th. All I do is work. I have no time to blog anymore. :( I am enjoying my new job though. (and my IKEA store!)


*Bold Patterns*

Hello! I needed to post something! Working at an Antique mall is really making me realize how much I love VINTAGE stuff. I actually have rented a booth of my own at the mall I work at. (I will post pictures soon.) I also need to post pictures of some of the cool stuff I have bought. :)

For now though, I am just posting about some stuff I love to look at. This cool pillow is from Henry Road. I really want to make pillows that look like this!

Or how about a Bedspread made from vintage scarfs!! I love the colors and patterns!!

I actually was looking for Black & White shower curtains and found this stuff. Still haven't found the "perfect" shower curtain for my hall bathroom. I think I have decided to decorate it Black & White. I have so much color everywhere else in my house. I want to find something very MOD with a strong 1960's feel. I like this floral one from Target.

Its a bit busy, but I think I could pull it off! lol ;)

We are working on our Master Bedroom again. Our new IKEA opens next week, and we hope to get it ready by then. We plan on buying a bed and all new furniture for our bedroom. I am very excited to decorate the room FINALLY! I think its going to turn out great. I am working on picking out the bedding. I love this new bedding from Target!

I still love this IKEA bedding.

I might just buy something that is a SOLID color. I don't want the room to be to crazy! We'll see.

Again, sorry that my posts are lacking. All I do right now is work.


*posting soon*

I know I said I was going to post more. :( I just am so busy with everything at work. My laptop is finally fixed, so I will be able to post alot easier soon. I promise. :) Hope everyone is well. I really have alot of catching up to do. lol


*Current Events*

Okay, here I go. Taking some time to post something. ;) I am so tired and working long hours and everyday. I like working, and I like the money, but I can't do anything else. :( So here is a post kinda about what I've been doing since mid-December.

Well, Xmas came, and went. Along with my birthday. So, glad its all over now. I always get Hello Kitty something for Xmas. I got this cute little calendar that I hung in my closet. I love it.

Here is Cody, Muffins, and me on Xmas morning.

WooHoo! Got my barstools FINALLY!

I also got Photoshop Elements!!!!! Of course it doesn't do you any good if your computer gets a virus, and crashes. :(

Here is where I have been.......

I will be spending lots of days and hours behind this customer service counter. This is my new full time job! As an assistant manager at a new antique mall opening up near my home. This is a photo of our store sign going up! How exciting!

I had talked about working at IKEA in the past. I am very glad that I changed my mind. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new job!! I am working with great people and it feels like family. Here is some photos of some booths....

These are just some that I like so far. I will take more photos later. (If I ever have time! HA!) The antique dealers are just now moving in. Our store opens on Jan 31st to the public. Its going to be crazy! I have decided to rent some spaces at the mall. I will have those to design and decorate soon. (If I get a day or two off!!) The house is slow. Not to many projects happening. I have attempted to do some collages.

Basically the picture above is as far as it got..... thats a post for another day.

There is always cats on my bed,...that never changes. lol ;) Something that has changed is some new artwork in my living room. YEAH! Drey sent them to me all the way from Austraila. To make it even cooler,... Jo from Desire to Inspire drew them! Its so neat to see them hanging in my home. :) (Reminds me of Two blogger friends that Inspire me!!)

So, now I have something in my corner. I hope to hang a Roy Licthenstein print on the other side.

Thanks for stopping by! I am sorry my posts are lacking,...and especially sorry that my comments are very lacking. :( Once I get my laptop back I will be able to atleast sit in bed on my computer! ( I don't need sleep, just blogging. lol )


Finally Back!

Well,.....my laptop is still down, but my husband was sweet enough to hook up my old computer for me. A friend of mine is in the process of rebuilding my laptop for me. He told me that the virus was that bad. He is going to be able to save my photos though. (Thank goodness) I have really missed blogging, and especially reading everyone elses. :(

I am now working 7 days a week though,....so even with a computer, I do not have alot of free time. I will just have to spend each day looking at one blog at a time so that I can catch up. Hopefully I will get back into the groove of things soon. :)

Hope everyone is well!
