New chairs!

So, I lucked out and got both chairs for only $80 from the Craigslist seller. Such a great deal! The chairs are in really good condition, only the welting cord is dirty (supposed to be ivory).

No idea. Just…

Mind racing

Thinking of housing stuff non-stop. Money has been tight since moving in so we aren’t where I’d like to be. Hopefully ordering A BLOODY FREAKING COFFEE TABLE next week. Can you hear me screaming with delight? I finally settled for something completely different from what bf and I initially discussed. We’ve decided on an acrylic table so more of the oriental rug can be enjoyed.   (1, 2) Towards the…
