Happy Halloween!

We had an office Halloween Party today and I won first place formy head in a freezer costume! Yay! I'm going to take my prize money and buy something purdy!

Wanna See Something Gross?

I had a little accident in the garage involving flip flops and a little bit of water. I didn't think it was that bad until I went to the hospital the next day and they told me it was broken. And THEN they called and told me it wasn't broken. All I know is it hurts!

My Greedy List!

I'm participating in Vintage Junky's Wish List Party. It might as well be called my delusional list. Cause Most of these...ain't never gonna happen!

Personal Chef. Oh how I want a personal chef. Someone to be at my beck and call, making me the most delicious dishes.

Before I die, I will own a Range Rover. I may be 89 years old, but it WILL happen. Okay, on to my more practical list.

I would love a pretty armoire like this one.

I want to swap out my current dining room rug for a seagrass one.

I don't know if a barn door is practical in our current house, but boy do I want one.

We could use new stools for the kitchen. The ones we have are too tall and lack any style.

I think our target lamps need to find their way to the dumpster soon. To be replaced with these beauties.

I'm hoping to stumble upon an AMAZING vintage sign one of these days.

My mom is getting rid of two wing back chairs soon and I'd like to slipcover them and put them at the head of my dining room table.

We really need a couch of some sort upstairs. One this size, but with similar lines to the one below.

I want one of these vintage racks for our bathroom to keep towels on.

I need to skirt SOMETHING! Anything!

A bar cart! (I don't even drink really...but I like the look!)

Craigslist Scavenger Hunt

I have a little routine everyday that I go through once I get to work. If I don't do it, I feel like I haven't accomplished anything. I start by going through my google reader, which is getting quite large. I usually have about 300 items to read every day. After that, I do my craigslist scavenger hunt. This is my list.

I found both of my farmhouse tables this way. Because, let's face it--craigslist can be hit or miss. So this list reminds of stuff that I need. Okay, stuff I want. I also try to keep it fairly vague, in the hopes that I'll find something pretty awesome.

Uh-huh. Yes.

Saw these plates today on Wind Lost and thought I was going to have a heart attack. I love them oh so much. And Horchow is having a sale right now. Normally, a 20 piece set is $ only $115. Not bad. You get 4 soup bowls, 4 cereal bowls, 4 salad plates, 4 dinner plates, and 4 mugs. I kind of just want to hang the plates. I think they would look so good against my blue shutters in the dining room.

I did it all for the Nook.

Well, I haven't done anything to it yet. But I will. Soon. Seriously, I will. Any day now.....

I want to wallpaper it, that's for sure. I'm obsessed with ticking these days, so I think ticking wallpaper is the perfect marriage. And then once that's done--I'm going to mount the TV and get the DVR off the floor. Then that will free up some space for a little make shift bar. Yup. Any day now......
