I'm Back!!!!!!!!!

It's been a long time since my last post, but I think I'm finally ready to get back into updating my blog and to get started on my long list of things that I want to do to my condo.

Most of you will know, but some of you won't, I lost my mother to cancer on June 20, 2012.  Before she passed, my dad and I spent as much time as possible with my mom taking care of her and just cherishing the time that we had left with each other before she passed away.  It's almost been a year and I'm starting to feel like it's time to get back to things that I'm passionate about.  I know this would make my mom so happy to know that I'm back working on my blog and that I'm going to starting working on projects and decorating my condo again.

Since it's been a while since I've worked on my condo, I'm feeling a little A.D.D. about the whole thing.  There are so many great ideas and thoughts running through my head that I don't know where to begin.  Let me tell you... with all of the my idea folders that I've created from the many magazines that I collect, the digital folder full pictures that I've saved from the internet and my Pinterest account ( I don't know where to begin.

After some internal deliberations I decided that I should start with purchasing a new bed.  My current bed situation is sad, just a plain old bed frame with box springs and a mattress.  I originally intended on creating my own headboard with fabric and a ton of batting.  The problem was, I just couldn't find the right fabric with the right pattern or the right shade of gray.  So I decided to put that idea on the back burner.  Then one day after work I was looking through the latest sales on Joss & Main ( and I came across the Limoges bed in the perfect shade of gray and decided that I had to have it.

Here it is....

 The next step is to order box springs and a mattress that actually fit this bed.  As much as I love(d) the West Elm duvet cover and pillow shams, I'm pretty much over this set and I'm ready for something else.    So continue to come back and check out my blog, I promise that I will have more post very, very, very soon.  In fact wait till you see the decorating that I've done in the living room.  If you look at my Home Tour page, the rooms are pretty bare and lack decorations.  I've been working on that and have so much to share with you.
