just a peek

Yesterday was one of those blah kinda days.  I've been wanting an orchid for a while but I'm pretty confident I'll manage to kill it.  Yesterday I decided I didn't care and it was time to spring for one anyway.
I'm so glad I did.  It's so pretty and is making me happy when I walk in the room.  I made a little vignette with my blue bird and this lovely book.  If you look close you'll see it's entitled "Birds and Flowers" and the orange makes it all pop!  Yeah, it will probably be dead in a month but hey sometimes it's worth a little splurge to brighten your day!

Wait, what is that?

The new rug came!  It's a keeper.  Even Olive approves.

I'll be back with more photos of the room overall.  It is a nice change.  More color and pattern but it layers nicely with our color palate and I think the second time's the charm for us.

  2. Can't wait to see the overall, but from what I can see it looks lovely in there! I'm interested to see how the orchid goes! You'll be like the movie Adaptation in no time! I understand about the hard rugs we had a jute rug for awhile that looked nice but it was horrible for child playtime!

  3. Looks great!! A much bigger impact than the first one.

  4. I love that rug - Olive has great taste! I would kill that orchid in a heartbeat!

  5. Your rug looks so great in there! And oh my gosh, your dog is adorable!
