pyrex and all-wheel drive

These are the latest and greatest... I especially love the snowflake dish. And speaking of snowflakes...Now that I traded in my car for something with all-wheel drive... I'm sure we won't get any for a long time! No, seriously according to all the best sources (The Farmers Almanac), we're supposed to get more snow this year than last. And since I got stuck in my own driveway several times last year... I decided it was time to suck it up and buy a grown-up car. Although I guess you can't really call it a "car" per-say. It's an '08 Nissan Rogue. Used though. And with my trade-in and everything, between the payment and insurance we'll save almost $200/month. And hopefully stay out of the ditch! I was SO sad today to leave my car behind though. I really loved it :(

Ah well... The sacrifices we make to live in the suburbs!!



More from the Ikea trip. I love this fabric because it lets a nice amount of light through. Almost like a printed shear. Kind of busy next to the Amy Butler fabric covered lamp shade. That might be my next project...

a new project

Eric's mom moved a couple of weeks ago, and we inherited some stuff. One of the things was this dresser. As you can see by the first picture, I couldn't leave well enough alone. I sanded and painted it, and changed out the knobs. I like how it came out, although it's not what I originally intended. I had painted the dresser part a green color a couple of shades brighter... And it turned out horribly. I still think I may paint the dresser part a different color eventually. I do like the color of the drawers though. I was thinking maybe navy for the other color? I would like to eventually tie it in with the color of the little bedroom, and put it in there. Maybe with fabric like this? It's from Amy Butler. Hmmm...
