Progress to Come

January 6, 2014

Hello lovely ladies and gents! Yes, Yes, I know it's been rather silent around here this past month. My apologies. Once I get my little paws on a proper camera I think that will change. 

I've begun to make small bits of progress in my home in spite of having next to no budget. If you stay tuned I'll share photos. I've rearranged the layout of the living room to take better advantage of the view. Really though, why sit on the sofa and look down at a car dealership when I can move to the opposite wall and look out at the bridge and harbour? Ah yes, I remember now, I was avoiding any glimpse of the kitchen. Not that the kitchen is awful… I just prefer to avoid house work.  I may just be the luckiest girl alive to have a handsome man who does the cooking AND cleaning. I may clone him and make millions.

Any whoo… speaking of cleaning… I was considering selling my glass top coffee table due to the fact that it needs a daily wipe down. This may be old news to everyone but me, but thanks to Windex Wipes I may just keep it. Highly recommend the stuff! (BTW the rug is long gone, something else I'm in need of)

I've also had some painting action take place in the living room. Black, pitch black. Although it was not my first choice, a compromise between budget and my gentleman's taste took place. I find a black and white palette more budget friendly as more budget friendly items in these two non-colours are easier to come by. Especially fabric. I may do a post on this at some point. Anyway, stay tuned for pics of newly painted goodness. In the meantime, feel free to ogle these…
