numbered mugs

I have been obssessed with these mugs from a photo in the book "Decorating for Modern Living" by Gerd Hatje and Peter Kaspar for quite sometime. It has been suggested that doing this DIY would be quite easy, but I'm lazy. I don't know, something about the font and the simplicity totally does it for me.

Here is info on the book!



I got a beautiful new dresser. Take a look. Oohs and ahhs allowed. I found it through Apartment Therapy Classifieds. The woman who sold it to me was definitely a kindred spirit and helped with great/inexpensive delivery from Santa Cruz.

A long time coming. . .

Ok it has been a super long time since I've posted. I have to admit I have not gotten very far on my room. But there have been some minor adjustments. For example I just purchased a bookshelf/dresser from Thrifttown for $30! I also updated my bed with a new bedspread. That cat has been around, I can't seem to trade him in for a danish dresser anytime soon.
These ceramic owls need to be hung. They were a $25 ebay purchase.
I purchased this vanity chair for $11 from that place Shauplatz on Valencia. Cute, no?
After much procrastination (and assistance) I replaced my old sheer curtains with these brown Ikea curtains. There are 2 curtain rods and I plan on placing a pattern of some form in front of the brown.

Let there be more light. . .

So Shayners sent me a link to some items I might love and I do heart these pendant lamps from Design Within Reach (I've swooned over them at the Jackson Square location). Don't think I would actually get these for my room make over. But I heart them. I am definitely on a big lighting kick right now. Boring huh?

Older brother Lampie. . .

Hopefully my new lamp will get along with my old one. Here is an older yellow lamp I got for $5.99 at Thrift Town. I added a new lampshade. Everyone suggested getting a dark lampshade, but I am into the clean white look.

Here is a close up for the lamp I just found. I love the cracks under the glaze. Not sure what this effect is called. . . .But super pretty.
