A long time coming!

Suffice it to say that I LOVE the curtains and am so happy that I went through with it. Although I lament that fact that I live alone every time I come home to an empty room.

Plain Ikea curtains, pom pom trim purchased with MM at the jaw-dropping M & J Trimming on 6th Ave, a rod from Home Depot, and lots of might.

Having your bed alongside a window is fantastic, as I basically sleep in the windowsill and have a dreamy view of Sage Hall's dome and fall foliage.

I am really enjoying this $6 palm that Lauren and I both got, but I suspect that it's beginning to foster some little gnats (and possibly a maggot).

Since I've taken this (very dark!) image, Britte has painted me an oil still life which now peeks behind the left curtain panel. Includes one of the 300+ dried fish I used for a 3D Design project. (Now the sculpture is sitting on my floor in a trash bag. Have the gnats discovered it yet?! I guess I'll know when they do.)

Monday to Thursday, Friday to Sunday

Four days a week, I slosh around from class to class to class to class to class to class to the Box Office to dining halls to bed. The other three days, I've been having the loveliest time with sweet babies fooding and antiquing. We found this gem off of Northampton proper: Vintage Treasures. Very reasonably priced and seriously, was fuer ein Schatz!! Can't wait to go back!


Waiting for the sun to take pictures...

Sea Blossom Knob, Anthro, 10

There are perfect imitations at T.J. Maxx -- four for $10. I have been waiting for years now!!

What to do with them? Perhaps fashion them into curtain tie-backs? Save them for a desk?

Perfect fitted sheet fold

Would seem obvious, but I always dread wrestling with the elastic on these.

Almost as good as Martha's tip of putting a marshmallow at the bottom of an ice cream cone to eliminate drip. !!!!!
