And I love working on our house. We've got a hundred imagined projects; 30 or 40 we'll get too eventually; and about 10 in the works (like the half de-wallpapered powder room. Now that's an ugly sight). Adding little things here and there, a picture, a vase, some thrift store dishes is a fun way for us to indulge on a budget and a tight schedule.
But I would be lying if I said I didn't suffer from what Melissa over at The Inspired Room calls "magazine cover-itis" (http://theinspiredroom.net/my-house/). (Loving her blog, by the way.) Like, I swear if I start drooling over the most recent Pottery Barn bedroom/bathroom catalog one more time . . . But, I'm trying - I'm trying to live in the moment and enjoy what we can do, and even more so, trying just to enjoy the fun of creating a space we love (and, finally, a space with a window in the bathroom!)
Above: my favorite find from yesterday, a bluey-green bowl with speckles inside ($11). We're thinking of this color for the dining room table. Like it?
