I don’t know if it’s the fact that we spent two days admiring the trees from grandma’s window or the crisp cool air outside, but I’m downright obsessed with wood graining right now. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, minus Pk’s sprained ankle. It’s just a minor football-after-turkey induced injury, but it put a damper on any ambitious home improvement plans I had for the weekend. It’s always wonderful to get out of town and remind myself that there is an entire world outside the cozy confines of my life with Lucy. Did I mention how thankful I am for her?
If today’s weather was a bedroom, it would look like this.
yum. Seriously, all I want to do is crawl back into bed, but Lucy has other plans. While my tiny Imelda Marcos sorts through all the shoes in the mudroom, I’ve been browsing through pics of amazing bedrooms. I’ve been thinking that this winter would be a good time to deal with one of our most ignored rooms – our bedroom. Hopefully these pics will inspire you too…
Lastly, if I have a bucket of kids, I would want them to sleep here… although the mom part of me would have to build some amazing custom bed rails.

Hope you all are doing something cozy and warm today. I think me and the dvr are gonna spend some quality time together during Lucy’s nap.
bugs and fishes,
You’re thinking “really Helen, another post about that blanket?” What can I say. I’m a little obsessed. Mostly I just wanted to play with Olioboard.
This is kind of the palette I’m thinking for the guest room, with aforementioned awesome blanket. Mostly neutral, layered textures, pop of color. Olioboard is an excellent creative tool/time waster if you want to get in touch with your inner decorator. Now I must go, because Lucy is practicing every noise she can make to convince me to give her more Yobaby.
