Help, I need somebody

I haven’t gotten very far because I haven’t decided what I am going to do with the walls. Should I leave them white? I originally thought about a light blue or grey with crown moulding, but now that I have decided on my lamp…I am unsure which direction to head? I bought this garbage can about 4 years ago at an Antique fair in Sacramento a few years ago, because I absolutely LOVED it. Yes, I fell in love with a garbage can 😉 I don’t really think the lamp and garbage can “go.” I am officially confused. As you can see, Lucy is very upset about my indecisiveness and does not feel like getting off the bed until I make a decision. No…I have not decided on bedding either. Btw…I have ALWAYS loved Pottery Barn’s black frames with white matting…does that “go” with my lamp, can, and bed? Boohoo. I need Thom Filicia to “Dress My Nest!”

I hadn't mentioned that the floor in my bedroom is stained concrete. There's my prized garbage can! ;)

My trusty "new" lamp, minus the shade.

As you can tell, Lucy is very upset that nothing has been accomplished. Notice my photo on the wall, and the ricola's on my side table. ;)

I’m Mad

I have always made it a priority to always post positive things here, but today…I’m making an exception. Last night, I was able to post my latest post, and went to sleep. It’s been a rather ackward week to say the least…it probably all started when my lucky bamboo plant broke right at midnight on the Chinese New Year. If that doesn’t scream bad luck I don’t know what does.

This morning I attempted to turn on my computer, but it decided it wasn’t going to cooperate. I tried everything I possibly could think of, and when looking at the mac manual it stated to insert disc one. I did that, pressed c like it asked me to…and nothing happened. It then stated to back up my files, and erase everything….tried to do that, but nothing was deleted. The apple just sits there, while an annoying circle just goes around and around. At first it told me to restart my computer, but now I think it must really be in a bad state as it just goes around and around and around. What tops it off, is I just extended the warranty, got the discs in the mail, but guess what I never downloaded them to my computer, which means….I don’t have extended warranty on my computer. Oh happy day! No, I don’t have an external hard drive, and I could kick myself in the you know where. I worked so hard on opening an etsy shop and if I lose all my photos guess what that means. I am so upset right now, I don’t know if this is God’s way of getting me not to worry about tomorrow, seeing as I’ve been worried all week about finding out my grandma’s test results, because I was irritated by someone’s email..or what. All I know is, I feel like Cameron Diaz in The Holiday, where she tries her hardest to make herself cry but nothing happens. If anyone is mac savvy, please help me. If I lose all my pictures, and have to close my etsy shop, I am going back to a pc. This is my second mac, and I have had it.

Help Me Redecorate My Room! Please :)

I’ve decided to redecorate my bedroom, but this time I’m actually following through. I spent the last few days searching different styles and deciding what I do and do not like….and scaring the heck out of myself with feng shui and Chinese New Year superstitions…sorry family! Come to find out, I don’t like much! I’m not really into modern, I love traditional (but not the entire room), shabby chic is NOT my thing, I like a bit of glamour,  I really want a Barcelona chair, crown-moulding, I’m torn between painting my room grey, white, or blue, pink accents or purple accents, what type of table lamp to buy, how to hide the cords to my printer, computer, television, my precious paper shredder, and last but not least for my wallpaper to finally come down!!!!

I have a few posts this week from different things I’ve found, and I’m hoping you, my blog buddies will help me out, since you never let me down!

Wallpaper before I got a hold of it——


As you can see- I started taking down my childhood wallpaper. I didn’t pick this, it was never my style. As a child I wanted posters with Joey from NKOTB, or Dylan McKay, but I was never permitted seeing as my mother didn’t want holes in her precious wallpaper. If I am going to be Lemont and live at home like he did on Sanford & Son, I want to be in a space I actually like! 😉 For those of you who have not seen my bed from the 1800’s that I bought at an antique fair a few months ago…here is my headboard:


Btw…I still haven’t bought new bed linens. I’m still looking for the perfect AFFORDABLE duvet cover or quilt, comforter…what have you. Suggestions, gladly taken 🙂

I decided not to refinish my vintage parlor, but instead have started using this vintage dresser my mom and I found at an antique fair in Sacramento, a few years ago. I’m not sure if I’m going to keep my “stuff” on the vintage mirror that I’ve been using as a tray.


Oh and here’s my Christmas present from my mama! It’s actually made of an old window and has a mirror (which obviously I need to clean!)
