If you've been coming around to this blog for any amount of time you know that I love red. Most rooms in my house have a lot of color. Yellow is the main color with red and green as accent colors.
I deviate from this palette a bit in my bedroom. All of that color would be too much in a bedroom which requires calm. The walls are a creamy white and most of the furniture is white. The accent colors are black and red and I just love the overall effect.
This is the top of David's armoire. We bought the armoire with the house since we have no real closets to speak of. Those red cowboy boots are child size and Lily likes to wear them. They always end up back on the armoire though because I love to look at them.
I was 29 years old in this picture and just a few months pregnant with Lily.
This is my radiator. I know that some folks love radiators because they lend an old fashioned feel to a room. My only complaint with radiators is that they limit the use of an entire corner of a room. It's a little frustrating to envision a new room set up only to have your dreams thwarted by a radiator.
This is my dresser. I keep all of my precious jewels from Goodwill and Target in those old jewelry and sewing boxes.
This is not in my room, but in my dining room. I've been meaning to show you my baby pitcher collection for ages. Also, you button naysayers, notice the buttons arranged by color and placed in cute little jars. So there.
I did make it out junking the other day, but I did not find much. I am hoping that as folks start clearing out their homes in a post holiday frenzy some good stuff will find its way to my favorite junk stores.
In other news David is slowly getting better and I am still running. I have thirty pounds to lose and some days it feels like I will never get there. I am trying to remind myself that it will be slow and steady but some times I would prefer fast and immediate. I've lost ten pounds so far and am enjoying the feeling of my clothes being looser. I am also completely excited to look for cheap smaller clothes at the junk store- a goal that is sure to keep me on track!
