So, I’m loving my new job. Part time work is great. The laundry is piled up, of course. Once we are in our new home with full time access to our W&D (we share days with Micah and Taryn now) I will be able to do a little each day. Why is it that I always jump straight to laundry. Blah.
We are enjoying this semi-crazy season of life though. Each time we go in our new house, another lightbulb goes on in Hensley’s 2-year-old brain. She knows she definitely doesn’t want to sleep in her room in its current state, but we’ve discussed that it will be clean and cozy and she will sleep on her bed, not the floor.
Tegegne makes sure to find a nail somewhere and pull it out with a hammer on each visit. We got to know the neighbors better at a block party this weekend, and he loved playing in the fire hydrant with his new waterproof cast. (Our neighbor is a fire chief which made that legal, as well as blocking off our semi-busy street.)
Like I’ve said before, Tom Kundig is designer that inspires me. I love his steel elements, and layering of materials. Another thing I like from him is black and white contrast. We will try to do black lights and black raw steel against our white walls. Speaking of lightbulbs going on…I have found the ideal pendant…and we’ll take 3 of them to go over our dining table…I’m SO excited. For one, the lights I look at for work are gorgeous, but cost a nearly third of our total budget. Secondly, this one has the industrial look we’re going for and thirdly, it’s RUBBER! It comes all smushed in the box like the gray one below! It’s 11.75″ x 13″ diameter. On sale for $160 at DWR. Check out Muuto’s website and other awesome products.
