A Little of This....

It's been awhile. I haven't had a moment to sit down to do anything remotely relaxing since the students returned and I moved into my new house. (updating my facebook status doesn't really count). I'm slowly making my life organized again. Everyday I try to do something that is productive. Sometimes that means at work and sometimes it's at home....

Things are not the completely settled and unpacked but I do have the kitchen mostly done. I got a cute curtain for the kitchen window at my favorite country store Country Junction. This seemed to be the catalyst I needed to get this room done.

I really love the material.
Please ignore the dishes drying in the sink.
Here is the kitchen table area
The other side of the kitchen
You've seen this before, but I hung the shutters I purchased near the windows. Still trying to decide on what kind of window treatment I'll use...
So that's the apartment stuff. As I finish other rooms, I'll share. I'm just happy I can once again cook at home and relax on the couch if I need to. Everything else will come in time....
Last weekend I needed a pick me up of the accessories variety so I picked up these cute shoes at Payless (sometimes Payless really does well)
And I got this cute silk scarf at the Grand and Glorious Garage Sales in town. It's so pretty in person. I can't wait to rock it.
In other news my stitches are out of my finger but it's not completely healed yet. I am still sporting a band aid and Neosporin. I'm considering it my fall look. :)
That's what's up with me. I've been so out of the blog loop lately. I have some serious catching up to do.
I hope you are all having a great week!
