New pieces for the office

First, let me tell you something, I am a decisive person.  It will take a person twice as long to coax me out of a decision I’ve already made because I’ve already invested a lot of time to come to my decision – because I do a whole lot of research.  And sometimes, like Mr. Wonderful or the house we live in, it only takes me a glance to know I’m all in.

I was hoping that finding furniture for my office would be the same way.

I was searching online like crazy for the new look I want, I added items to my carts, then removed them, then let them sit in my cart only to expire (dang you timed shopping cart websites, what is this?  A timed shopping spree?!) and then I had to readd them again.  All that time coming and going didn’t help with the decision making thing, I felt bipolar.

I finally found the new seating for my office after two whole days of searching online.  You’re not seeing double, they came in a pair for $279 on One Kings Lane – Sign up today on OKL for a $15 credit for purchases of $30 or more.



Aren’t they the cutest things ever?  I just did a cartwheel.  In my mind.  This girl hasn’t stretched yet.

Also got this…

Product_SVF17565_Image_1Found this adorable lamp from the Land of Nod, $59. I am very aware that store is for children, and I do not care.


When it comes to prints, I LOVE architecture.  See the two prints on top of one another in our living room:


Well those are 2 of the set of 4  I found at Scottsdale Marketplace and nearly cried out of happiness when I scored them from a seller who just so happened to be there in her booth and gave me a deal.  The best investment, ever. Those two are staying where they are, but one is going from the bedroom and into my office now.

Oh, and while I was surfing for office stuff I also found a perfect granite colored tufted side chair that will go where those stools are, much comfier and fill that space.

And these beautiful fine art reproduction prints, the pair for $99 will compliment the newly moved architecture print:


I firmly believe that if you invest in beautiful artwork you’ll always find a way to keep them displayed in your home forever, no matter how you change your rooms.  That’s the beauty of sticking to your true style, most things you should be able to move amongst rooms – not all, but most.  And, I do think these would just look darling in a little girl’s room one day too.

I said would.  If one day we decided to give up our lives and have children.  Would and if are not terms used for predicting the future, they are terms used to soften possible momentary lapses in judgement.

      Hi Mailinh! I can’t wait to reveal it! The prints come in on Monday but I’m still waiting for Aaron Brother’s penny sale so I can get all the frames I need!

    Don’t rush the kiddo thing for sure! (Why can’t two lovebirds be lovebirds flying freely together before laying eggs right away?!)
    Whenever it happens, it will be in God’s perfect timing. While motherhood is a treasure and children are gifts, you really do give up your life like you stated and as a newlywed, this is some time with Hubby you can never get back again! Make the most of it, like you already are!
