a good morning


It really was a good morning.  I had such a wonderful weekend ice skating and playing around Boston and then today I found out all my classes are cancelled...what are the odds?  The sun is actually shining into our apartment, and not only did my boyfriend bring home this adorable heart candle with flowers last night, but he learned how to start the coffee machine.  Hey, it's the little things and I'm soaking it up.  Do you remember the ikea bookshelf in the background, from my previous organization project?  For the few that are wondering, I ended up painting it a light gray and moving it towards the window for now.  It was too matchy matchy near the desk.  All the extra storage items found a place on an old Container Store bookshelf:






This is right behind our bedroom door and as you can tell there are pipes and wires, etc.  Nothing exciting, but all the crafting supplies are here and a stack of magazines that need to be filed.  I added the flowers and candle, but to keep it real, they are never there! 


anyway,  hoping to have a few love posts up this week...until then, I'm going to make a serious to do list {which better involve the school books on the right of my desk} in my new notebook with a big cup of coffee.

happy monday!

and of course, don't forget to enter the Pretty Chic SF giveaway!

  17. I think the best days off are the one "surprise" ones. A little pocket of time you can use as a gift.

    I hope you had a great, cozy day!

    {and I love those beautiful blue magazine files - Container Store, too?}

  21. How did you paint the IKEA expedit shelves?? Spray paint? How many coats did it take? Did you sand previously? Can you tell I'm now interested in doing this myself... haha.

    Cheers,
