Moving and some decorating finds



I am moving in a few weeks, to a lovely little apartment about 10 minutes away--of course I am in major magazine-scouring, sale-peeping, housewares-radar mode. That's always the best part about moving; decorating a new place! It will be nice to have more space for the three of us and all of our things. . .

Those frames and the mirror pictured cost less than $30 all together! I plan to leave the mirror as is (the frame is sort of gold, but rubbed through to dark brown and red in places--it has some character) and then paint the frames black with some glossy paint. I think my print from Hidden Eloise at Hide N Seek will look great in one of them. I think maybe a nice black and white of the baby would be cool, and I don't know about the rest! I DO know that I need a nice oval ornate one and at least a few smaller ones.

Working on creating my dream rug on the Flor website at the moment--I really like the Martha Stewart Faux Bois patterns!

Sigh - I just lost 15 minutes on the FLOR site because of you! Such fun. Good luck getting ready for the move!

I know, isn't it a labyrinth of pretty? I just can't choose! :)

great finds! Good luck with the move. I HATE moving, but I do enjoy decorating a new place also.

Thanks BSC! I am totally procrastinating on the packing thing! It's only like a week till we move, but we're supposed to be getting the key soon and moving things gradually so it doesn't wipe us out--especially since we're going to be doing all this with our 18 month-old! :)
