At Last....The Boudoir

I know you all have been waiting on the edge of your seat for the boudoir to be finished. Alas, it was not meant to be as I have a mere three weeks left here and should probably begin to think about packing.

But I thought I would give you a couple of pictures of how far we came.

You'll have to just imagine the bed. The plan to sell it came about rather quickly and I didn't have a chance to take photos before it went bye-bye.

(photo taken pre-bed-go-bye-bye)

Notice the damask pattern on the inside of the lampshade. Which matches the curtains perfectly.

Sigh.

Don't get me wrong. I'm happy to be going to Todd's and decorating his bedroom with him. We've already looked at bedding we like that will incorporate what we both want and I absolutely LOVE that all of his furniture matches. I never got that far. But I'll just save my curtains and lampshades so that when we have an extra bedroom one day, it will be the Damask Room.

And since I never took any updated photos of my living room and dining room, once I actually got settled, here ya go.


And as a bonus, here are my Halloween decorations. These are from the same woman who made the Santa and reindeer.

I love that painting you have in your dining room of the old man praying (I think it's called "Grace"??. My grandfather used to have it (and still might) hanging in his dining room. I might have to steal it from him...

Your old apartment is cute and cozy. But it'll be fun to have roommates! I like having people around to cook for and entertain. And I know you're the same way. I'm jealous!

Your (almost) old apartment looks great. You did a great job making it "home" as I'm sure you will at your new place!
Kristin is very observant noticing that painting!

You know what's funny, Kristin? Uncle Paul has that same painting in his kitchen (Grandma Mabel's kitchen).

I found this one at an antique store a few years ago and was reminded of Nestorville, so I bought it. Todd likes it too, so it will still get a place on the wall when I move.
