that being said, i couldn’t help but hang up the real live mistletoe that arrived at my doorstep tout suite. i’ve made sure i catch jp under there at least a handful of times a day. smooch!
i’ve got lots extra! interested in some? i can send some to your doorstep for $5 (includes shipping!). just email me with your paypal email address and i’ll invoice you and, most likely, get it out that same day.
with little bug on the way, it’s clear that it’s time to find ramona a room for herself. she shared a bed with us for nearly the first year of her life. since that time, she’s slept in a crib in the middle of our basement that, though it has finished walls and ceilings, is hardly more than a concrete room with low ceilings (we live in a one bedroom home). but now we’re nearly done with a back part of the basement storage area that we were able to throw up some walls and create a small room for ramona. i can’t decorate until next week –after the carpet and baseboard is installed– but after that, i’m on a mission to make this teeny space perfect for miss minka moo. here’s what i’ve come up with so far:
clockwise from top left: || ekby jarpen shelf || gypsya bright paisley pillow || onefortythree brass wall sconce || vintage black dala horse || tarva dresser || moroccan leather pouf || roopantaran kantha quilt || adhesive black polka dots for the wall by walls by mur ||
what else, besides books and lovies and a few toys, does a little girl’s room need?

yesterday the lovely kathryn bacalis came over to snap some shots of our little space in lohi for an apartment therapy home tour. this arrangement was the kick-in-the-butt we needed to get our home in tip-top shape (painting the dingy kitchen, getting rid of our boob fans [seriously, they looked like big boobs], cleaning areas that i have been remiss in cleaning… for three years). i’m really pleased w how everything turned out. and i’m extremely pleased w kathryn who was an absolute delight to work with! i cannot wait to see the rest of the images when it comes out on apartment therapy.
