Now that I'm mostly settled, I thought I'd share some pics with y'all. It's still kinda messy...ok, it's really messy. I haven't put any pics up yet. I have stuff all over the floor. There are dirty dishes in my sink. None of this will change anytime before January.
This is what happens when you A) are busy, B) have no furniture to store things, C) are out of town a lot and D) have packrat tendencies.
That would make a good band name: Packrat Tendencies.
Anyway, here goes. It's not very exciting, but you can at least get an idea of how my paint turned out. And how badly I need to buy slipcovers! Ugh. That plaid has got to go.
My rug--looks like one I saw in Pottery Barn, so I'm stoked!!
The pic that will one day go above my couch (Notice how well it matches my rug. This was not planned. But I love it when stuff works out like that, don't you?)
Aah, the front porch. Sure would be nice to sit out there today. Too bad it's friggin arctic here. High of 50? WTF?
Entryway (see the Samster?)
This is supposed to be a dining area...but for now, it stores random crap
The bedside table I ganked from Czarina's barn. I luuuurve it. Note my super-cute pink flannel pjs on my bed. Can you see the little snowmen? I rocked out and got the pjs for $15. I heart Tar-zhay.
The "wall o furniture" which Czarina thinks should go. I'll get around to it one day.
Those were the most interesting. As if you haven't figured it out by now, photography is not my calling. Sometime next month, I should have a more photo-op kind of home. But for now, it's a little...raggedy looking.

Oh! I almost forgot. Sammy has been getting cold lately, so we have been trying on some sweaters. If you ever want to laugh your ass off, try stuffing a 19 pound living animal into a turtleneck sweater they do not want to wear. This one here didn't work (too small) so I went to PetSmart and got him a cute red one. More pics to follow later.*
*Note: I am not one of those people who makes their dogs wear outfits. Sammy is cooler than that. But he seriously shivers for an hour after we go outside, and it makes me worry. He's got those big brown eyes, and he just looks up at me, shivering, and...well, you get the idea. The sweaters are purely functional. The cuteness is just a bonus.
