I am so excited about this movie! Everytime I see the commercial promoting this movie, I get more excited. It is by far one of the best books I have read. I have nothing but high hopes for this movie! How could it be bad when Julia Roberts is in it! Can't wait, August 13th! And if you haven't read Eat, Pray, Love yet, trust me and go read it!!!
I have this blank wall that is driving me crazy in our kitchen! If you saw my last the post about our new apartment, then you are probably thinking that it's the only blank wall in the house! True, but I love a homey feel and I love cool stuff on the wall. I have a 2 ideas and I can't decide which one to do.
My other idea is revolved around this! Manny and I bought this photo at the public market in Seattle. I thought about hanging this on the wall with some pics that I took of the market. Seattle is such a big part of us and I want to put this some where in my house! It needs a home too!
Manny and I have finally moved to Austin and are settled. My mom stayed for a week and helped me get organized and most importantly DECORATED! We only lack curtains in both the bedrooms! After that it will be done! Here are some pics of our new home!
This is our mantel. Manny had a little trouble with the window and the P at first. He loved it once we added more stuff. Plus he loves the ship next to the fireplace.
We went over to Alicia's a few weeks ago to set up baby Anna's room. When I got there my mom had bought these cute chairs for $6 TOTAL! I'm going to use them as kitchen table chairs with some others and mix and match them. I got some slate grey/blue paint at Home Depot and done! We are packing up everything this evening in our huge U-Haul and will be moving tomorrow!!! I'll post pics once the apartment is decorated!
Manny and I are moving to Austin this weekend so of course I have a ton of projects!!! I wanted to make an ottoman/coffee table. My mom had this old table in storage. We sanded down all the layers of paint and stained it. We also found this awesome fabric for $5 a yard at Hancock's. We ended up buying 8 yards! We are going to make curtains too!!!
Here are the before and after pics. I have another project that I will post tomorrow! It's still drying!!!
