Weekend busy-ness

What did I do this weekend? Besides a huge amount of running around, long visits with family on Saturday, and trips to Ikea, we managed to re-paint the wall.


No pictures yet, because we're letting it cure before we move all the furniture back in place, and we're currently living among stacks of books.

I also picked up this little cutie while I was at the thrift store getting some old sheets to use as drop cloths.


I've been drooling over enameled colanders at Anthro and Sur la Table, so when I saw this one sitting in Goodwill I snatched it up immediately. $2.99 and it feels like it's better quality than the new ones. And now that our main wall is blue, I think that red accents are going to look great.

My creation

We made a quick trip to Ikea for a lamp and naturally ended up with several other things. Namely this fabric and this cute set of bowls.

The only downside to all this activity is that I am soooo tired and it's only Monday. I think I need a weekend to recover from my productive weekend.
