Happy New Years!!

Welcome to the year 2011!!! (okay so maybe I should acknowledge that its still 2010 and bid it good bye first...) but frankly I'm not so sad to see it go...2010 has been good in many ways, but it has also been very difficult!

Hope you have a great New Years Weekend! I'm off to bid my sister good bye, its been fun to have her around for the holidays but now she must go back to school :(

Bedroom Update

Do you remember this post back in October? The West Elm pin-tuck bedding? I have been admiring it for quite a while :) Well they had a sale on it earlier this month...

...and I couldn't resist any longer! The texture is great, and I wanted something more appropriate for winter. As opposed to the bright yellow with flowers and birds & butterflies I had :)

I ordered the Sea Spray (there are 6 color options) and it was much more muted than I was expecting. It is definitely a shade of blue on the website, but in reality it is much more grey. My roommate actually thought it was white...that's how light it is!

But it still works well with the blue and green. And I absolutely love how the pin-tuck looks!

I'm hoping I'll get the pillow shams from Santa ;)

Christmas at home

I'm sitting right here in front of the tree tonight...there really is
nothing quite like a fire and a Christmas tree!

Can I keep it up all year? I love it! That little lamb is from my first Christmas :)

And some other places with a little Christmas cheer!

When you first walk in the front door...

I picked up this nativity set last year after Christmas, I think its so sweet!
I love that it includes the shepherd and angel.

I placed the tree in front of the window this year, which I love from outside
but it required some major rearranging of the living room!

Every year for Christmas my grandma has given me a music box...
so as of today I have quite the collection!

I love unpacking them every year and listening to them all

It really doesn't feel like Christmas for me until I've put them up

And my attempt to rid the living room of flowers (don't worry, just for winter!)
I replaced the artwork with stockings for the season!

And I have to admit I really like them :)

Things that make me smile...

Yay! It's not a kitchen!! hehe...oh don't worry, there will be more soon :)

This room has an industrial flare to it, but I love how it all works together. I can imagine it as a doctor's waiting room, granted I've never been in a waiting room this beautiful, but if I ever find one I'll be doing all my waiting here.

Can you handle another kitchen? I just can't seem to stop!

This one has tons of fun pops of red! I'm drooling over that phone on the wall, anyone know where I can find one? (I know I don't have a home phone, but I could still just sit and stare at it!)

Snow day!

We got 7 inches of snow last night, it is truly a winter wonderland! All the school's are closed, and I'm pretty sure I got my work out for the week shoveling my driveway this morning! (good thing too, since the gym sent a notice they're closed today!)

And now all I can think about is why didn't I become a teacher! ;)

Anyone getting to play in the snow today?!
