Master Bedroom nook

This is a little nook just outside of the master bedroom. I'm thinking about wallpapering it in a grass cloth. It wouldn't take much paper and would add just the right amount of texture. What do you think?

Home at Last

We finally moved in August 17! Little did I know that it would take 6 weeks to get my internet connected. Talk about torture!! Our farmhouse is on 10 acres about 40 minutes from a major metro area. Who knew it would take this long? Apparently we needed 2 permits from our lovely county and one of the groups we needed a permit from only meets once a month. Once embarq had the permits in hand they had to dig 900ft. to our house. I wanted to kiss the service man when he showed up to finish Friday! I had 284 e-mails and 300 posts waiting to be poured over in my google reader account.

We are slowly getting settled. I absolutely love everything about our house and property. I still have a lot of decorating to do. If anyone has any suggestions on where to get great ready made drapes cheap let me know. I also need counter stools. Unfortunately I can't afford $300-$400 per stool. So I'm searching antique stores and flea markets. I'd love to find something that resembles the tavern bar stool by Darryl Carter.

I'ts good to be back and to finally be home.
