I was off most of last week, galavanting around with my little guy swimming, shopping, napping… enjoying.
I was going to get back in the swing of things today with a real nail biter of a post about how we finally installed shower doors in our master bathroom.
But I’m feeling far too inspired of late to talk about boring ol shower doors.
D has the wood all laid out to start building our dining room table, for which I cannot wait, and I think I’d like to make it this runner as a welcome home gift.
So simple, so pretty, so homey.
Also needed for the three adjectives above:
A wire cloche. Don’t know what a cloche is? Neither did I. Keep scrolling.
That’s a cloche. Made of wire. And I need one.
PS – She made that for $1.04! She’s got some other really great projects and tips, too. Dig around her blog when you get a minute.
I told you all that I’m involved in this Blogging without Borders thing, yes? My focus is our master suite and I thought I had some solid ideas all wrapped up and ready to go, Amy style. But they keep falling apart and my terror grows daily. My curtains are on the to-do list, but isn’t this a cute little idea?
Vintage door knobs as tie-backs. Duh!
Now we’ve been in the house for about 6 weeks already, and we really are loving it, but it’s taking a while to really feel settled in. It still has construction dust around the edges, and this interesting new-car-smell. It’s not a bad smell… It is just an odd mix of sheet rock, freshly cut cedar, and newly installed carpet. You know the one. I have a habit of keeping candles lit, but I think I might need to step it up a notch for that extra kick of cozy.
Lemon, rosemary, and vanilla. Mmmm…
Speaking of vanilla.. Did you know you can DIY that?
