As we come to a close of my virtual Housewarming, I just wanna thank you guys for stopping by and saying such nice things about my little abode. Everything you've seen has been our first draft. I'm not one of those people who can sit around and let something look crappy until we have the time or money to do what we really want. I'd rather spend a couple bucks and do a temporary fix to get me by. I mean, c'mon, I give my throw pillows dirty looks, can you imagine what I'd do to a undecorated room? So obviously this little house of ours can expect a lot more in terms of makeovers and decorating and of course, I'll share it all here. But you're not here to listen to me yap, you're here to win a freakin prize. Let's do it.
The winner is...# 8! Again! Congrats Bethany! Email me at oh.thats.swell at gmail dot com to claim those purty towels.
And while we're at it, let's do another! We're going to visit my office today so I thought these would look cute on your file cabinet or other assorted metal surfaces. Another awesome etsy find...from Freestyle Gifts.
Check these out.
The winner has his or her choice of these Mid Century Embossed Wooden Letter Magnets spelling "Awesome", "Nutty" or "Hilarious". These letters are from a 1950s game of Anagrams. They are black with white letters are made of shaped wood measuring about an inch square. If only she had the words "Dude" and "Freakin", she'd have my complete daily vocabulary.
So leave a comment anytime before Monday night at 9 pm EST and let me know which word you like best and what word you wished she was able to make. Keep it clean folks, my mom reads this here blog.
Ahhh the office. What we do here: Paying bills, Petting the desktop when it feels neglected, Shred the ungodly amount of paperwork we accumulate et cetera et cetera. This room was clearly the little boy's room. And yup, you guessed it, I kinda liked the wall color. It will eventually change when future hellion #2 comes along but for now, it's fun!
The desk and fun orange boxes are from Ikea and the pics are old school carnival shots...skeeball, carousel, ferris wheel, bumper cars...LOVE them. They also make me happy.
Did I neglect to mention that apparently we live in a cave? That's why all my rooms are so dark. Anyway, here is our guest room/future nursery...in all of it's pink glory. We actually had nothing sitting in this room 2 weeks ago besides my vanity, an armoire and the two ottoman/storage boxes that are now being used as bedside tables. Then I got a call from my Dad telling me he's coming into town this week and all of a sudden, I needed a guest room. Off to Target I went where I picked up an air mattress and the two little lamps. I grabbed the duvet cover & pillows from the clearance aisle at HomeGoods and all of a sudden I had a guest room. Not too shabby for one night's work.
I'm such a nerd. I'm really excited about these pillows. Ok, I know that HomeGoods is cheap. But these two actually had Bed Bath and Beyond tags on them still. Yeah, $39.99 each. Ok, so even with a 20% off coupon, someone (not me) would have paid $32 each for these.
Well that about wraps it up for now. I'll be back on Monday with actual Housewarming party pics and another winner!
