Eleven Things Volume 12

1.  I'm emotionally attached to people...places...and definitely things.  I'm trading in my car next week.  I've had it just about 9 years now and I'm pretty sure I'm going to cry and cause a scene when they drive it away...

2.  I'm super-obsessed with the color navy lately. love them all.  I've decided on a paint color for my bedroom...and my new car is even dark blue...go figure...

3. I have a feeling this is going to take 87 coats to cover...even with the paint/primer in one.  The color is Indigo Streamer by Valspar.  I ordered a new paint roller thing that is supposed to make painting super-easy....I'll let you know how it works
4. I went to a vintage/home sale last weekend in Glenwood - I found these two great treasures - an old wooden rolling pin and a little preserved plant - I forget what kind this's not boxwood like the big now that's going to bug me... 

5.  I have a milestone birthday coming up in less than 2 months...I really want to go on a fabulous vacation but with putting a roof on the house and buying a new car...AND replacing an exterior door...I just don't see it happening 

6.  Speaking of the roof...not as exciting as treasure hunting but here's the final result:

7.  I haven't kept up with my shred diet at all...need to get back on track next week.

8.  I finally found drapes at Target for my bedroom de-girl-ifying project - I'll share some photos once I get the room painted and get everything styled. 

9.  I re-worked my closet 'room' (again)...I also purged some items which helped the room feel less cluttered...#workinprogress

10.  I really need to reform my shopaholic tendencies... all I keep thinking about are all the great barn sales and antique sales going on this weekend...

11.  I updated my profile photo - on the right sidebar...I can't figure out how to make it bigger without it taking up the whole page...sorry if you have to get out your magnifying glass :)

Have a great weekend!


  1. I like the new profile pic! I only had to squint a little to see it! lol I can not wait for the weather here in Iowa to become spring like, I am having garage sale withdrawl. :(

    1. Thanks Christopher! I couldn't agree more - definitely looking forward to warmer weather and great yard/estate sales - it's just not the same in the winter! :)
