I totally want this lamp by Abigail Ahern... it would complete me.  She has a great blog, filled with great dark, grey rooms.  I keep going back and forth about painting my bedroom deep grey... but I don't think it would sync with the flow of the rest of the house until I paint my front door a light blue, which won't happen until I paint the exterior trim white...sigh.  In the meantime... I totally want this lamp.

A Room to Love

Another room I have loved for a long time... each time I see it's like the first time.  The library is beyond brilliant.  Love.

Dress Plan

I am escaping from that dark gully between the deep comforting slumber of winter and the onset of spring fever.  For me this month is all about sorting things out and making lists for the coming year as I impatiently wait for the seasons to shift.  I try not to buy anything in February unless it's necessary, like a gift...  it's the perfect month for a spending freeze, the January sales are over and it's still really too soon for spring things. It gives me time to fully appreciate and organize the things I already own before adding anything else into the mix... like this dress. Or trees... I'm not going to buy any trees until I can plant them.  So in the mean time I'll just be ogling dresses and trees.

It's sunny and clear! And it's a three day weekend!'s sunny and clear.  My head is filled with the glitter of it.
