This is the one and only bedroom. Abi the diva has managed to place herself in nearly all the photos.
The red and white checked buffalo curtains came from Primitive Star Quilt Shop.
This window looks out on the patio, where I can see my container gardens and the birds that flock to the outdoor space.
Nothing real special or expensive here. You will not be seeing Pottery Barn linens on my bed. Too rich for my blood. What you see is what I’ve had for quite a few years.
Maybe Abi is trying to show you her new haircut, courtesy of Mom. I’m tired of paying for a groomer every three or four months. At the end of that time, they look like monkeys.
So I ordered some electric clippers from Amazon.com, and did it myself. I have a lot to learn. Abi’s face and head is the hardest to get right somehow.
You don’t see Charlie because he is not a photo diva. Poor Charlie has one bald spot on his back because I couldn’t quite get the clippers started when first trying them out yesterday. He is easier to groom in some ways because he has straight hair. But he fights you and is quite strong. It is a battle.
This is the only room where I have a TV set up. I really don’t care for a TV in the living room.
So this is one of my four rooms. Well, if you count the fact that I have a tiny eating area at the end of the living room, it is just three rooms.
You’ve seen the living room. I still haven’t gotten started on the kitchen. I will have to pace myself, because I want to do some painting and some bigger projects. It may take me awhile. But you know it will be done in a frugal manner.
I’m coming along on the bathroom. I have a red and white buffalo checked shower curtain that I ordered from the same place where I got the curtains and the gold and white quilt. Primitive Star Quilt Shop has great prices. I found them by googling buffalo checked curtains.
You know, I have lived in all sorts of spaces in my life. From big turn of the century homes to garden homes to small homes to an apartment. Just because you live in an apartment does not mean you can’t decorate your home to reflect your personality and what you value.
You may think there just isn’t a way to fix your space up for whatever reason. Lack of funds or lack of space.
Look at your living space with new eyes, and a creative mind set. Pinterest is a great place to get ideas. You will find all sorts of thrifty ways to decorate your space, no matter what your budget is.
Bloom where you are planted, no matter where that happens to be.
