Busy Days!

Hello Friends,
I just wanted to pop in and say hello. The past week has been a blur of school functions, house cleaning and home improvements. I really haven't been able to get into the studio but I have a bunch of projects all lined up for when I get a minute...or an hour or three.
The living room is finally finished except for the new coffee table that should be here some time this week. I LOVE my new linen cabinet that we bought at Ikea. We are using it to hold books and eventually a flat screen TV will go up top so I can watch my sappy chick flicks without the men in the house complaining. I don't want any dirty boys in my living room anyway:P

I don't know if you can tell but it's a pretty yellow with yellow and white stripes inside.

My favorite lamp I bought at home Goods. I really just bought it for the shade. I am waiting till I find the perfect lamp base but for now the one it came with will have to do.

Cozy reading spot!

Because the couch is in front of the big window, it's now our cats favorite place to sleep. So I have to keep it mostly covered with the big green chenille blanket.
Well, that's it for now! I hope you all are having a wonderful week.

Each week seems to blur by for me too! Your house looks so cute- I think I could cuddle on on the sofa with the kitties! SMILE! Have a wonderful week!

Oh, I LOVE your new cabinet and the room is spectacular! So colorful and clean looking! I would love that chair to sketch in. Have fun!

I love the cabinet & yr home is so incredibly neat - like pages out of an Ikea catalog! (That's a double compliment!).

I love the cabinet and the color in that room is wonderful! I am in love with those bird prints.... I hear you on running on empty, when did life with two little men get sooo crazy!!!

Love your taste in furniture! My husband bought me a case similar to your but in black and slightly smaller as a valentines gift:) I like the striped paper idea! I may have to add paper to lighten it up a bit. Every blog that I have been visiting in the last day has said how busy they are..I think we should all take blog breaks every so often :)
Hope you had a great Valentines!!

I just had to come back and tell you that right after I read your blog, I was looking at my new March issue of Country Living magazine and there was your IKEA cabinet! It is shown on a page full of yellow things!

I laugh every time I see the word "neat" describing my home!
Next week I'll show you pictures of the family room. The word neat won't even enter your mind:)

It looks great! Don't you love having something a little unusual like your darling lamp?

Very cute cabinet! gotta love ikea!! I have a small hat lamp like that. My husband bought it for me our 1st Christmas together...it was so expensive and I couldn't believe he remembered me pointing it out in a boutique. He also gave me my engagement ring that day...so I especially love my little lamp:)
