The boys decided they want to wake up on their own this year, so far it's been two days and they are doing a very good job at it, it's hard to believe how big they are...since I'm not an early riser their request is actually fine with me, but secretly I lay in bed and I'm ready to jump out at any moment in case of need, they managed to do it all on their own and didn't miss the bus or need me at all, is it actually a sad story? are my morning motherly duties over for good? I can't decide,I have mixed feeling about it.
This week I took some new photos of the dining room and living room back wall, I am dreaming of a new shelving system, one that will run from side to side and all the way up to the ceiling.Looking at the photos it doesn't seem like such a priority anymore, but I hope we can get around to building something nicer then these Ikea Billy system shelves we've had for 20 years now,they must have moved 5 times with us!
A gilmpse of the dining room (with a bit of my studio space spilling in on the left). The branch on the wall is actually a light fixture my husband built, it's covered with tiny lights in pink and white and looks very cool at night.The white hutch was a horrible brown I painted white, distressed and changed the knobs to mismatched ones.
The living room back wall with the Ikea shelves,we painted the fireplace matt black this year and hanged a smaller painting of my mom's, this one is of three flowers which reminds us of our three boys, I like the scale much better now.
