I should have:
1. mopped these sticky hardwoods
2. walked 4 miles (yeah right)
3. okay, walked for 20 minutes
4. done at least one load of laundry
5. found that missing phone bill and paid it
I did no such thing.
I did support our local economy.
The best part of being a resident of Atlanta is our bargain shopping!
I treated myself to a skinny cinnamon dolce latte and hit the road.
Man, I do love Ballards Backroom. A lot! I found a $249 beadboard drying rack for $9.99!
I also got four of these:
four document cushions for 50% off! My boys always complain about these metal chairs being cold...
a new gray plate for my plate rack hiding the cookvent. (little one on the left. $7.95 from Anthro.)
see the lamp shade on the table? Got it for half off from Anthro, too. I have been stalking that one.
The best stop, as always, was my trip to Barnes & Noble. All my money goes to either books or decor. No nails. No facials. I am a kinda low-maintenance, high-maintenance girl. Does that make any sense?
Cottage Living reissued this. I am sure I have it somewhere, but this first image looked new. It is so good. Boy, I miss Cottage Living. Do you?
This image began my love for banquettes and Saarenin. I have an IKEA one. I do want a real tulip one day.
Here is the translation of that at our old house. Horrible picture, I know. I did love this room, though.
Love this image, too. The banquette, the cream and gray painted floors..the ghost chairs. perfection.
