Quilt and Studio

Although I've only been watching eBay for 2 weeks in hopes of finding the West Elm Chanel Stitch Quilt in Horseradish, I am kind of looking at this one in yellow, from Pottery Barn, as a close second.

It's on sale right now. I don't like it as much as the other one, but I do like it quite a bit. We'll see.

Today is a snowy one. I'm still on the fence about venturing out to work. On one hand, I just started working again and it's so nice to get out of the house (cabin fever...) but at the same time, it's a far drive and I'm not so sure that it's the best idea to go. The snow looks very slippery...it's the light fluffy stuff, which is never good for driving in, especially during the first half, which is mostly roads going through fields. I wonder if the hardware store in town has a shade of paint that I can agree with. It would be for my studio. I'm going for a deep charcoaly greenish blue (which i've chosen to call "dirty mermaid", haha) and white. After months of trying to feel the space out, it's the only color that seems like it would be right. Which is strange because I'd never really choose that color anywhere else. But the studio is in the basement and is currently a bad putty-orange color, light dusty blue, 4 types of wood and some brown and ivory. TOO much going on in a space that already has the personality of a tornado. I'm going for white tables and walls and that greenish color for the pegboard. Photos to come, even though it's not supposed to be next on the to-do list.


Well, I should go. I still have more coffee waiting for me and I have to shovel the driveway. I like shoveling. Everybody keeps trying to get us to buy a snowblower but I tell them that we don't need one yet (don't they know about the COOLER stuff you can get for $400?). Maybe in 10 years (which would be 5 for joe since he'll be that age in 5 years) but not right now. Although I guess I shouldn't say that with the little amount of snow we've gotten this year.....next year it could be day after day, and then shoveling gets tedious (takes too long). Okay, see you.

We got all your snow!

It's so much fun setting up a studio space. Will there be more lighting?

Sale comforters are good + really, it's not THAT much different.
