Today………..

I took random pictures! I noticed a crop duster hovering nearby, so grandma and I went for a drive. I managed to get some pretty great shots if I do say so myself. When I got home I saw that the ranunculus were blooming…so off I went to snap those too!

I fell in love with Ish and Chi’s prints a few weeks ago. Viv, the very talented artist of Ish and Chi, is based in Sydney, Australia and recently opened her shop. Her work is gorgeous, and in the perfect soothing pallette. Have a look in her shop, I’m sure you’ll be thrilled you did!

Happy Week, and possibly Trails

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend! It’s rainy and yucky in Northern California, but that’s okay…I’ve finally gotten a chance to catch up on your blogs. It was a good sales week for me, I sold three prints on etsy:

I have a new project in the works, which I am very excited about. If you’ve purchased any of my prints you know that I include a special *gift.* I will be featuring them this week in my shop, finally! I sold out of them before they arrived on etsy…please stay tuned!

Oh and about the “Possibly trails”…..I feel as if I have overgrown wordpress. I love wordpress very much, but it’s not very practical when running a business. I am not able to post javascript, and that makes it difficult with etsy. I am not sure if I will just transfer everything over to typepad, but I have been thinking about making the move. For $4.95 a month, I can have peace of mind, security…and many more outlets for my blog. I don’t want to keep moving around, but with not being able to make this blog “my own” it’s a struggle. Please feel free to share your input if you’ve made the move over to typepad, or have any ideas. Hope the weekend is going well, and again thank you for being the best peeps I could ask for!

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. ;)

Visibly upset! lol

I love… lamp. I love lamp.

Yes, I said I wasn’t looking to create a bedroom which looked like an antique store or museum, but I fell in love with this lamp, and best of all…it was only $40 at a local antique store. This is the lamp shade that came with it, but I don’t particularly care for it. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for a better lamp shade or where I can find one? Now that I have chosen this lamp, what color do you think I should go with my walls, bedspread, etc? I also don’t want to be stuck with a bedroom that is entirely PINK! I want 40’s glam…right, Callie! 🙂

New!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Here are a few photos that I posted over the weekend. I’m thrilled as I was chosen for another treasury. I can’t believe I’ve been open about 3 weeks, and have been in 5 treasuries…I truly feel blessed!!! I am thinking I may add my scarves to my shop, but haven’t decided. I’ll let you decide! =)
