Look what we started




The dining room transformation has begun!  That Marimekko wallpaper I put on the idea board is a no go though.  I went to order it and discovered it costs $150 a roll.  How did I not notice that the first time?  Ouch.  It's evidently cool to just seal over distressed walls and call it a day.  But somehow I imagine it's easier to pull off in a London flat than an Alabama suburb.  I'll keep you posted on our progress!  Love it when Mom and Dad come to town and light a fire under me.

Oh, and take a look too at what's growing by our driveway.  Someone spit a pit and it grew.  I can accidentally grow peaches but no amount of love and effort on my part has saved our cherry tomatoes.  Ironic.
