Superman to the Rescue!

Stand back evil doers! Superman is here! Need help opening that new package that the UPS Man just delivered? Never fear Superman will help! All he needs is his trusty tools -  pliers and level, and he'll poom that evil package post haste! (side note: 'poom' is Zach's favorite word. As in 'Lightning McQueen poomed a tire!'  'Stand back ya swab, I'm gonna poom you!' or an unfortunate fall 'Mommy just poomed herself!' as I slipped on the vacuum cleaner hose and fell flat on my back!)

And do you see what was in that evil package?

My new fabric from fabric guru! I'm hoping to be productive this weekend and make some new pillows for our living room. I've just started on the brown and ivory stripe pillow. I got that fabric from Joanns here locally. It's a very nice slubby linen blend. I can't find the brown color online. But the ivory color is here. The best part is it's on sale now for only $3.59/yd! Can't beat that price!

I'm thinking I might add this pillow to the mix for a little more pizazz.

what do you think? It's $25 from Pottery Barn. I always crave a little more color in the cold gray days of January & February. Now I just need to figure out what to do with the other side of the room. Maybe I'll pick the dirty clothes up off the floor so I can actually show you what it looks like tomorrow!

Stay tuned...

bath inspiration

top left - unknown

It's that time of year again! Time to start house dreaming. These bathrooms are dreamy, aren't they? I've compiled even more inspiring pics on Pinterest. Check them out here.

Plans for the new house are s l o w l y coming along. I think my architect vastly underestimated me. You see, I tend to want to see all lots of options - before settling on the final one. Hopefully, I'll have some plans to post soon!
