Yellow is a color that I recently let into my life. I never liked it growing up, but it's a very happy color to me so now I use it was an accent whenever I can.

For the past week or two, these roses have been staring at me every time I pull into the driveway. I'm not so sure of the location in the yard...they are really tall and kind of just on their own. Which bugs me. So I cut them and brought them in.

These have been inside for three days but I hadn't noticed the fragrance until today. I thought I disliked the way roses smelled, but as I was walking through my hallway I thought to myself "oh, that's nice!" and then I walked through again and thought "wait, what is that? is that my candle? can't be". And then I realized it was the roses. Huh. Anyway, I wasn't fan of roses till about 3 days ago. I decided that next year I will start a rose garden. Because, you know- another creative endeavor is *just* what I need.
Okay, so speaking of yellow, I thought I'd give you a glimpse into the guest bedroom. We put this room on hiatus because there is a lot of stuff that we need before we can complete it. I'm hoping sometime this winter. But for now, here it is:

This is what it looked like before. I can't find my photo that I took without the tape around the windows, so this will have to do:

To finish it, we need:
+window treatments (IKEA)
+nightstand (to be thrifted)
+new lighting (undecided)
+rug (undecided)
+chair (undecided)
+frames (IKEA)
+decorations (thrift)
+art (etsy and some self made stuff)

So basically we need like $350 to make it okay or $600 to make it good. I will settle at $500. ;) I need to start saving.

Okay, it's 9:00 and I'm feeling like I need to do something with my day. My damn foot is still bothering me so I kind of feel like I should really continue to chill and go easy on it till it's better.

I have always been a huge fan of roses. I am lucky enough to have lots of mature rose bushes at my new house but, like you, don't like the placement of them. I am just waiting for them to go dormant this winter, then I will rearrange my garden! If you do grow a rose garden I think you will love it.
