Sunday At Home

I rearranged our living room the other day. Yes I, the 38 weeks pregnant woman, pushed chairs around all by myself. I know I'm not supposed to, but I couldn't not do it. We have these cool little things that go under the legs so you can push furniture on wood floors and not scratch them up. Too easy to wait the 4 hours for Forest to get home from work : )

I really like this arrangement so much. I've told Forest that like 10 times. These chairs are super comfy and didn't get enough use in the dining room, as much as I liked that little corner. It's also nice to have extra seating in the living room. And the Saarinen table I bought on Ebay is perfect between the yellow chairs.

Our house is coming along nicely. I'd like to get a new couch, but for now I'm just going to make new pillows and do with that.


I love the brightness of these flowers against the white background. That little vase is a Jonathan Adler that my sweet friend Christa gifted me after I said how much I liked it. I will find a special place for it in the house.

More photos on flickr. Hope your Monday is coming along nicely : )

You wood floors turned out gorgeous. The color is light but rich. So nice!
Did you buy your white book shelf at IKEA? It looks like something I was thinking about buying... if you did, you must tell me how you like it. :)

Also... pushing chairs at 38 weeks... you must be "nesting". I remember getting those urges and not being able to ignore them. It was more painful to sit by and do nothing.

Your house looks great!

I suspect you'll go into labor any day now. I moved furniture on a Sunday and went into labor Monday night.

Happy nesting!

Your house is amazing. Seriously. I am filing this away in the someday-I-won't-live-in-an-apartment corner of my brain.
