I'm still in the thick of renovation...the painting is finished, the new flooring starts going in on Tuesday and I have been SHOPPING (mainly via the Internet)
24/7 (or so it feels...).

This is the paint color, although it doesn't look this brown on the walls...more green in it.

New bed (but not the headboard or footboard)...still looking for a headboard.

8x11 area rug....

New sheets and duvet covers...etc., etc., etc......

Meanwhile, we have moved the contents of our closets to the living room

and hope for no company in the next few days!

I treated myself to a very lovely Kantha Cloth Vest by Mieko Mintz...the link is to her wonderful website...such eye candy!

I took my friend Joan out for her birthday yesterday, and my vest had its debut...

It's totally reversible, light as a feather and something I'll wear a lot.

BTW, I'm also wearing my Danish outfit from Bitte Kai Rand. AND...the new funky bracelet is from Marirose who I discovered at Artistry in Fashion and told you about. I LOVE her work!

Maybe, just maybe, I'll get to spend the afternoon in my studio...my fabrics and my machines are calling to me!

  14. Oh, I love the paintings in your living room.
    Your vest is incredible. I love the diamond-placed pocket, how it looks from the outside and inside, and the humongous collar. Your Danish outfit and bracelet are also wonderfully unique and beautiful.
    Good luck with your continuing renovations. Your bed choice gets two thumbs up here.

  15. Wow - beautiful vest in such a gorgeous vibrant color.
