so...what have you been up to?

Thursday, April 10, 2014


I was sick. The flu. Ick! It zapped all of my creative energy. Actually, it zapped all of my energy. So I curled up with my blanket and my ipad and I spent several days doing nothing.  Which sounds wonderful, But when your sick, it's not wonderful. 

I've been wanting to do some redecorating, but I wasn't sure which direction to go in. I love vintage, but not too vintage. I love bold colors and contemporary pieces too.While I was ill I discovered that interior decorators refer to my intended style as Industrial Chic. Who knew that I had a style? :) Here's some inspiration photos that I found on Pinterest. Did I mention that I love Pinterest? You can find me here.

As soon as I started feeling better, I went shopping. I'm not wealthy, so I'm going to have to transform one piece at a time.  My first purchase was two of these cute bar stools. I am thrilled with them!
I have a few ideas for some crafty home decor pieces with vintage flair. I'm excited to get them started. Except a trip to the ER on Tuesday set me back a few days. As I recover, I'll plan my future projects. Meanwhile...what have you been up to?

  1. Oh my - hope you're feeling much, much better! Despite being under the weather, looks like you were productive in journeying into decorating/renovating ideas! Love the photos you've selected to guide you! Industrial Chic - who knew! We're in dire need of some 'style updates at our place, but...where to start has me in a complete stall! Lottery win required (and then I'd hire an interior designer to do the work *grin*)! Stay cosy and warm - sending well wishes your way!

  6. Well at least you used your "sick time" for some productive purposes (yes, Pinterest, you are a noble pursuit). LOVE that you shared your thoughts and musings and inspirations here, so thanks for the lovely eye candy. I can't wait to see the clever things that you incorporate into your space. You've got a great eye and even when you're sick, that creative vision is there!
