~ The living room decorating is progressing, albeit slowly. New accent pillows for the couch in lime green floral? Check. Walls painted? Check. Artwork hung? Lamps purchased? Hmm...
Last weekend, however, new lamps were tracked down at the wondrous HomeGoods in Woodbridge, Virginia. I really had no set idea of what kind of lamps were needed and I've yet to take the tags off these (can you tell I sometimes have a hard time making decisions?) but I have a feeling they are keepers. Slightly different pink pattern than the walls, but I think I like that. Eventually I plan to have the wing chair and its ottoman recovered in navy blue linen or duck cloth. See that still life above the chair? It was purchased for $2 and has become the central inspiration for the living room makeover.
~ This past weekend I made a much-needed trip to Trader Joe's to stock up on frozen organic vegetables and fruits, as well as sea salt, bubbly water, and other 'necessities'. Oh how I wish a TJ's would find its way to Fredericksburg. I plan on writing a letter to ask them to come on down - there is a perfect storefront downtown that would be a great location (for me at least!).
~ A couple of girlfriends came over for the Golden Globes on Sunday. We had cheap champagne in my great-grandmother's etched champagne bowls. Delightful.
