Sleepy. Trippy. Decoraty. Winny.

SLEEPY. Hi everyone!!! Not much going on around here other than I'm sleepy. I have been trying my darnedest to be in bed at 10PM every night (totally going against my night owl tendencies) and yet I am still sleepy. Don't ask me how that happens.

TRIPPY. I have a new personalized piece coming down the pike next week. Why not this week Nina? Well because I'm waiting on a supply kiddies! hee hee! Also, I'm taking a mini-vacation this week.

DECORATY. In other news, Mr. Beads and I have been on a decorating kick this month. He painted the living room this wonderful earth tone orange with a neutral tan-nish accent wall. I picked out the colors in the "oops paint" section of Home Depot. If you don't know what oops paint is, you are sorely missing out on decorating on the cheap! Google it. Here is a quick shot.
So you know, once you start these sorts of things it's hard to stop. I think we're going to go for a vaguely ethnic look in here. We'll see how it goes. My attention has been pulled towards mirrors, bookshelves, the little tchotkes that make the place look good (candles, throw pillows). We're out of control. But don't worry we are only as out of control as we have budgeted for! Once the money runs out, it's over! Which reminds me, go buy some stuff from me so the good times can continue to roll! heh heh.

Here are some things I either got or want:

How cute are these candles? From Kohl's. Saw these today. Going to get the orange I think.
IKEA Hemnes mirror for the mantle.
IKEA Expedit bookshelf. Got two of these bad boys.

IKEA Tullsta. Think I want two of these. We'll see. They are not as light colored in person. I might be late with this, but did you know there is this site Bemz that specializes in slipcovers for your IKEA furniture? How cool is that?!?!?
We are a bit IKEA heavy handed here I know. But what can I say? They fit the budget.

And finally we may go ahead and get a slip cover for our couch so we can have more versatility with the color scheme. What do you all think?

WINNY. No room makeover is complete without perusing Etsy for some things non? I found this cool decal shop called Janey Mac and I found her blog and I won some decals!!! SWEET. These will be great practice. Can't wait until they arrive!!!

Hope all is well with everyone else and in case I don't get back here this week, have a great one!


p.s. ooh I wrote a novel!!!

um, ps- you wrote a novel?! I have been writing and rewriting the same first chapter on a book for MONTHS. I'm gonna need more information. At this point between work and the kids I'm lucky if I can even read a novel (this too shall pass)
p.s. Love oops paint! - diggin' the color you guys chose.
