Here's how the living room is looking. I'm really digging the lighter, brighter color.
I'd ordered a green shag rug from Overstock but when I just checked the status it seems I made a mistake and really ordered a black shag rug. Needless to say, it's going back immediately. I was so looking forward to that shaggy, grass-like rug. I'm going to see if the price goes back down and order it again, this time making sure I'm ordering green.
Tomorrow the house gets inspected so we can renew our foster care licenses. I have so much to do...every room will get peeked into! Today I really need to tend to the craft room...
But all I really want to do is sip coffee and daydream.
OH! p.s. The three angels spent the day with me yesterday. It was so much fun! You should see how much these little ones can eat! Want to hear something so cute? The little girl (I'll have to think of what anonymous name to call her) has a word for when she really likes something (reminds me of Teresa's Foofala story!)...it's Neek! and it's said more like a little squeal like what you imagine a cartoon mouse might say. Neek! Neek!
p.p.s. I know you're going to want to know about the stuff in the living room picture, right? The house pillows were made by my amazing friend Catherine of Red Shoes... http://www.redshoeshomegoods.com (I think I'm going to grab one of her new pillows too so I'm watching her site like a hawk...a hawk, I tell you!) And the houses on the wall are by my sweet friends at Berries in the Meadow. Look here or contact the cottage. The cuckoo clock is my favorite gift from Rich for Christmas. It's from Pottery Barn Kids but I think they are sold out. And the mural? Also from Rich for Christmas from . here I overheard Rich telling my mother "You should see what Amy did in the living room...she put stickers all over the wall." That made me feel less excited about it. What do you think? Does it look like stickers? Is it silly?
