New Digs for the New Home: Part III

I should be on Part VIIXIVIIII by now (I know that’s not a real numeral by the way) with all the stuff I’ve been buying.  For anyone wondering what it’s like to be owner of a new home, I’ll tell you what it’s like.  It’s never perfect.  Many friends have been stopping by lately while I’ve been home with my contractor and handyman.  It’s been so fun showing them everything I’ve done, and yes, you will all see it soon once done!

I think Pottery Barn has my credit card on file.  They should, anyway.  I had 16 items in my shopping cart that sat there for a week.  They even sent me a reminder email that I had items in my cart, encouraging me to check out.  I know Pottery Barn, I know that my total is equivalent is that to a 50mm/1.2 lens.  For those who do not know what that is, it’s the price of a nice Louis Vuitton bag – a NICE one.  So, I waited.  And waited.  Then realized that my handyman was coming soon and I really needed his help to install these things so I cringed and checked out with my purchases.  I never want to look at that receipt again.

My lovely realtor Kat bought me the set of ceramic vases, outdoor bee pillows, and nautical door stop as housewarming gifts!  I felt like it was Christmas as my neighbors carried my goodies over and I opened box after box squealing like a little piggy, “Weeeeeee!” as I threw the packaging in the air.

I share with you just a few of my latest additions to the home.

I purchased fabric by the yard because I plan on sewing custom draperies for my kitchen and laundry room.  I’m looking for a very particular style and I can’t seem to find the right fit anywhere and I plan on mounting the rod to the ceiling instead of the wall for a different look.

Diana Elizabeth opened up a Pottery Barn credit card because she heard she gets $25 back for every $250 she spends.  That would have been really nice to have known a while back.  Oh well.
