The New and The Old, Still Purple

So the New Year is finally here ... and I happily have kicked the Old Year to the curb (seems to be a trend over the last couple of years, doesn't it?) Although, despite my best attempts to think that something dramatic changed at 00:01 a couple of days ago, I don't really think it did.

BUT.... My New Year's Eve soirée went off quite well. I have a TON of food left though. What's with you people? Don't you ever eat?

So I am back to my current obsession of picking paint chips and trying to nail down a color scheme for the master suite. I found the most fantastic bedding, but they do not make it for the dinky bed I was forced to buy when I moved into that match box I used to live in. I am tempted to buy it "for the future" while it is on sale for nearly half price but the rational me has thought better than to spend currently tight finances like that. But look at how comfy it looks!!


And the idea of suede finish paint in the bedroom just sounds divine ... but then that brings us back to the problem of high ceilings and faux finishes. Dammit!

For what you spend on "extra" paint to reach those gloriously high ceilings, you NEED to get your beautiful bedding at a discount.

But seriously, cute stuff doesn't last long in the stores, let alone if it's on a discount. A surviving-2006 treat, if you will.

Yep, I'm an enabler. ;)

Thanks for the GREAT night on New Year's! Loved every minute of it!

It's why I went with an all log interior on the cabin.... nothing to paint.

On a completely unrelated note, I'll be at the LAX airport in February and I'll be thinking of you! (Since the Malibu visit was the only time I've been in LAX)
