just the beginnings...

we're finally shelling out some money to try to make our house's random rooms look a little better.
our kitchen is so weird with it's open space. we have plans to put this loveseat and a chair in here...but what do you think of this rug? it can still go back. tim thinks it's too big. man, rugs are expensive.

this looks 110 times better in real life...not so shiny. BUT i finally bought a duvet cover for our spare room. (and yes, its not ON the duvet yet because i need to wash it) this means, if you want to come and stay with us - you don't have to bring a sleeping bag! yay! but aren't those blue pillows the perfect colour to go with the walls? i love winners. i bought that little side table peeking out over there from value village and have big plans to paint it before spring break is over so stay tuned for an updated version of this room coming soon. :)

and come sleep over!

you know why i like you bec shulba...well a lot of reasons, but one is this...

when i thinking of "creating a house", i immediately think i can't do it. but then i think of you, the person i am "meant to become" haha. and you're doing it, so i can too right?

its weird how that was meant to be a thing i like about you and it turned out to be a thing about me. haha.

but seriously, i love that you do things your own way and in your own time. thanks for being you bec.

oh that sharelle is so generous with the compliments and comments...here's my attempt:

I love the photos behind the loveseat in the kitchen "nook" area. Did you develop them all/enlarge them and frame them yourself? I feel as though I need you to help me do this at my house...

PS - I enjoy my google reader, but find that I forget to come and comment as much. My apologies, Bec!

I think the rug looks great. I was just watching a show on rugs, and they say the biggest mistake people make is they get rugs that are too small, so no, I don't think it's too big.
