calendar | triangle rings | lip butter | vase
I think this wish list is screaming Spring, no?
I never bought a planner for this year and I came across this one, so pretty and colorful… so unlike me too, but I love it and I think I can still order one; those tiny rings are super cute; I have been using the lip butter (wild rose tint), I mean it truly feels like I have butter on my lips. I have a thing for vases and I don’t think it’s an obsession but definitely a problem and this little vase will be coming my way soon.
Valentine’s Day…Some have dinner plans tonight, I will be driving kids to soccer practice and eating chocolates that the hubs got me… and that’s fine with me, I love to eat out but not on special occasions, sometimes restaurants are too crowded on this day and I love food too much to rush it, our dinner plans are for tomorrow, but it is Friday and I don’t want to cook on Fridays… so take-out night!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
The entrance and landing had a very light (and thick!) wallpaper with a small diamond pattern, this was the first section (beside the kids rooms) that I started to work on in the house and it was really hard, it was pulled from some of the edges, the corners and around the light switches had a plastic protector, these were the only sections that were in better shape, I have never seen those plastic protectors before, so they were removed.
We started using whatever the liquid and tools are usually used to remove wallpaper but it was not working and it was still very hard to remove, so I opted for plain soapy water and soaked sections of the wall and little by little the wallpaper was coming off, this was tedious but worked better.
As I was removing wallpaper I started noticing the conditions of the walls, they were sticky and there were many holes and cracks… it was gross to remove the glue and at time it looked like, and pardon the grossness mucus, lots of mucus dripping from the walls.… not pleasant. Once that was done then the “fun” part started, filling up holes and cracks with joint compound, it became my BFF, what I didn’t like was the sanding part and If I had known about having to sand everywhere I had used joint compound I would have been less picky about tiny holes… Oy!
I do love how the chrysanthemum vase looks in that little nook by the stairs.
We sanded all the stair rails, trim, stairs steps; it was an off-white before, after everything was cleaned, we painted the walls Chocolate Froth by Behr and the doors and trim is Ultra White by Glidden, updated the switch covers with white ones and the last thing we need to do is to update the light fixture…

I am leaning toward the allen + roth pendant, even though I kept looking at the globes styles for months, I think it fits the classic style of the house, although mixing styles is very tempting.
One of our beloved restaurants in Providence, we visit them as often as possible and we have the tendency to call in advance just to know if there is a special dessert on their menu that we happen to love, for those not aware the desserts are made-to-order and therefore you have to decide whether or not you want it before you order your entree and if you visit this restaurant and do not order dessert, you will making the biggest mistake ever!
