it's beginning to look...

a lot like Christmas!! I was sipping tea last night cuddled with my favorite boy-o. I love having a lit tree in our living room. Really why can't it just stay there, white twinkly lights and all?! It also dawned  on me as I sat there... our living room looks completely different than it did last year. Look... 2010: 2011: almost all the furniture is different! I'm loving our low modern sofa we scored at the Kasala (outlet) downtown Seattle. It's so low you can sit on the back side and join conversation with people sitting at the dining room table....

food

chalkboards Cooking & Recipes fall stew served in pumpkin House Fix lifestyle change Personal recycled wood chalkboard vegetarian diet

Becoming a vegetarian is learning how to cook all over again. (not that I really knew how to cook in the first place!) Since embracing the farm to fork method of eating...we've been forced to learn what produce is "in season" here in Seattle. I've been doing a little homework over the past several weeks. Finding a plethora of info on our local farmers market website where we're buying most of our veggies, fruits, nuts and breads for the week each Sunday. I've also learned PCC, the natural grocery store we're buying everything else at does a lot of the homework...

Yucky brown linoleum floors in tact too. The only things we'd done so far were install a garbage disposal (cause I've never lived without one and I knew I was destined for a backup with out one) put in a new faucet, and knocked out a scalloped wood valance that hung over the sink at the ceiling Fast forward a few months, to a wild D.I.Y. moment of...

keys!

House Fix key holder key rack letter press Misc. Creations! wall art

How in the world do we have so many keys??? It's a daily occurrence one of us can't find our keys. My quick fix... used a wood block letter press I found at second use (my favorite architectural salvage store) then took my handy little dremel and drilled holes for some screw in hooks and then hammered in a picture hanging bracket on the backside. wha-la. a whopping $4 spent...sweet. and 8 just happens to be my birthday too. :)

arlins room...

Thought I'd finally share the robot curtains I finished (weeks ago!) and share a little of Arlin's world with you too! I splurged on fabric. I just fell in love with this Japanese robot/train theme print. it's kinda kitschy/vintage and the colors go with everything we'd already started in his room. instead of a drapery rod we installed a tension cable, picked up all the parts at the hardware store for just a few dollars. Originally I intended to put grommets in the curtain header but I haven't found the right size and finish so I'm just using hook clips...
