But more importantly, it's the Friday of a three day weekend!
I am going to scout out a flea market in NE Kansas this weekend, lounge about, cheer on my Wildcats(Bleed Purple y'all!) and generally enjoy this "last summer weekend"
What do you have planned?
This week I've been picking out paint colors and working on a DIY Ikea Hack that I'll be sharing next week... let's just say, I decided that if we're going to stay in our tiny apartment for two more years(that makes it four years total living in 515 square feet with a husband and a dog. I'm gonna need like 10 bathtubs and 6 full size refrigerators to make up for this experience!) then I'm going to make the best of it, and that starts by living more intentionally with our home. I want to love the colors on the walls, the furniture we surround ourselves with, and generally make it more us. Apartment deposit be damned! To be honest, I don't think after 4 years we will get much of our deposit back, which is fine. It's $500.00 and I know they repaint and recarpet after every tenant leaves anyway, and I would rather love my home than worry about $500.00 in two years.
In related decorating news...I saw oodles of pins a couple years ago and made it my mission to find a variety of sizes of....embroidery hoops! So I could recreate looks like these:
Which I totally did, by the way, and loved it!
Looking around our apartment, I decided I had too much going on(I have a lot of gallery walls LOL) and so I decided to get out of the embroidery hoop game.
This is my collection:
|*That color on the walls in that top picture is actually pretty true to life of the color on our walls, hence why I want to paint it! It makes our home feel like a cave 80% of the time!|
If you would like to take these off my hands, I can send them out today or tomorrow(or Tuesday, if you pay Sunday or Monday)!
Just comment with your PayPal email address and I will invoice you!
When they are sold I will
