not only have i outgrown the furniture, but that girl has outgrown herself. i'm a very different woman than i was 13 years ago. changed in so many ways. when i walk into my home these days, i no longer recognize myself in it. it no longer suits me. this prompted a huge huge change, and a major impromptu shopping spree this weekend.

i chose pieces that spoke to me. the items literally chose me and i knew i had to take them home the minute i saw them. i love when that king of magic happens.
i finally have a beautiful set of durable kitchen chairs. i have a vintage round table, to be painted with annie sloane paint, and these chairs will make the perfect new addition to complete the look. mixing old with new.

|real sheep skin, one in charcoal and one i n pink (like the carpet below) one will go on the rocker above and one on the couch for extra comfort|
from romni wools in toronto
|vintage rug from design republic - YES in PINK|
|the florence couch from design republic - BUT will be in charcoal grey (NOT this colour pictured)... tufted seats, clean, mid-century look|
|teal buffet - will go in my hallway from rusteak in toronto|
i will have my own space, the kids and husband will have their basement tv/play area, and I will have my garage studio (in the spring when the ice melts).
it's all in the works. just takes some time, energy and lots of $$.
getting there. slowly but surely the new me emerging through my home.
