More to do.. Plus a LOT of Nami

It has been quite a while, but yes, a designer's home is never done.... Actually that's not true. There's like 2 things left to do, and then I'm never touching a thing! 

The last blog I wrote, The Very Most Recent Up to Date State of Everything, showed the house almost complete. I needed to go to the US to pick up a few things (4 more suitcases full of light fixtures rugs, bedding, etc) and oh, also, by the way, Get Married! (!!!!!!) 

Exchanging rings and vows on the family farm, September 3, 2017
While the whole trip was about last minute wedding planning, cleaning out the farm, decorating the farm, gathering friends and family, and celebrating... I did manage to sneak in some time to get things for our house too, of course! We picked up 5 rugs to bring back. Actually, you can barely see it in the photo, but our kitchen rug was also used on the altar of our wedding too! It's pink and gray and white and tie-dye effect. Here it is at home now! 

You can kind of see it in the shot I took of Buster cooling off on the cement. It lives under the island in the kitchen. In that picture you can also see the brass handles I brought back to put on all of our cabinetry and island. We got this perfect blue rug as well!

CB2 rug. Beautiful dog.

Oh yes! And in other news- Nami lives with us again finally!!!!! Do you mind a tangent? Most of my photos are of her now, so...

Diggin' holes wherever she pleases.

She's basically got the doggy dream life. Whew, that was a lot! Can we come back from that? Should I just end here? Is there room for anything more?! I had all these other house fixes to mention.... 

Next time!
