just when you think you should slow down your wine intake on account of the new year, you discover it’ll help spruce up your home. so you continue as you were.

I believe in the beauty of wine bottles. and in recycling, or better re-purposing them. as candle holders. or possibly a vase.

I was searching for a way to divide the eating portion of our peninsula from our sink, and think I found the prettiest barrier.

and of course, we keep the corks. and any significant dates like [J]’s golden birthday we make sure to document before adding to our collection.

time to go restock the wine rack!

happy wednesday.

grey + yellow.

I blame thank pinterest for so many things. but by far, my favorite [to date] is the grey + yellow color scheme. to me, it’s the perfect blend of relaxing comfort & happily bright.

in [J] & I’s last apartment, our bedroom was decorated simply in black + white, with red accents. until I found the best looking striped grey comforter. [then we moved, and my vision was put on hold].

our soon-to-be [in 7 days] bedroom will be gleaming with yellow accents. & because I was too excited to wait until move in.. I bought an over-sized candle lantern. and explored for further inspiration. let me share ..

ahh, can we move into our new place already? I’m ready to bring these ideas to life. now.

7 days.

I now must take [J] to the airport, again. he will be hard at work, down in new orleans. until either the 49er’s or ravens are crowned champions. then he’ll return, & we’ll move.

happy tuesday all.

the week in photos.

we have all [basically] made it through the first week of 2013. and guess what? I’m still optimistic about this being A GREAT STINKIN’ YEAR.

I’m ready get back on the job search horse. [because I said eff you for awhile]. I have bigger & better plans for my blog. I’m excited about growing {TwoCoins Etsy Shop}. and [J] & I moving into our own place, so I can decorate, dammit! [danger: this blog will make a hefty shift toward DIY when that happens. I will send out a forewarning. promise!]

in other words: I better not waste any time ..I have a lot to accomplish. so without further ado ..

it’s friday!
