making spaces

19Nov09

Little by little, we claim corners of our new home.  Though we really have to save our pennies for the basement reno, I couldn’t resist the temptations at IKEA yesterday.  This lampshade looks like the woods outside our house.  Nerdy, perhaps, but I love it:

My dad made this lamp for me when I was little.  The lampshade is new…. as are the candles…

and maybe we didn’t need the throw pillow quite yet, but it is pretty.  Yes?

Just forget that I should have sewed it – out of recycled pants or some such thing. W and I had a party:  ballroom, meatballs and fries, chocolate milk and shopping.  Neither local, nor sustainable.  I am hiding my car keys.

    It eases my guilt (just a little bit) to know that not everything in your house is made from re-purposed curtains and dish towels. And your Ikea purchases make for beautiful spaces.

  3. sounds like a fun date with your boy – and looks great too!
    i’m glad there’s 9 hours between us and ikea. dangerous.
