Mississippi River Rising

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the surging Mississippi River. The photos look so devastating, I can't even imagine the hardship.

Desk Details

In a previous post I featured my desk nook makeover. I have to admit, the space rocks. I think the last thing I need to complete the look is a seat cushion. Also because my butt hurts after sitting in this rickety old chair for 5 minutes.


I found the chair at this junky basement furniture shop in Brighton where all the castaway crap goes to die. I walked in and saw it immediately. I shelled out a mere $10 for the painted piece, so I didn't feel as guilty when I had to take it away from its 3 other lookalikes.


I absolutely treasure my hand-painted lighthouse lamp that I bought from a tag sale for $1. As I plan my move to Vermont I have to decide whether I want to carry this beachy theme to my new apartment in Winooski. There isn't a nearby beach to draw inspiration from, and I am considering transforming the space to take on more of a chic rustic farmhouse look. This decision will come once I lug all my junk up there this Saturday and I see how it looks in my new place!
