The adventures of Home Furnishing!


I bought this one:

It was the most expensive, but in the end, I decided that I am going to have a bed for a billionty years, so I should go with the one I really really liked the most. I loved the steampunky-looking headboard as well, but I kind of wanted a real full whole bed with all the bed parts, because I’ve never had one of those. When I was a kid, I had a headboard, followed by a day bed.

I also went to the Pottery Barn store again and talked to a sales rep about the bed. He told me that they used to have it on the floor and he quite liked it, and he actually answered the questions I had that were concerns. Then I was talking to my mom, and she said that she’d seen that bed when she was in the store and it was really nice. Plus, and this is part of the reason I was keen on the Pottery Barn beds, my parents have two PB beds, one in their apartment and one in their house, and they love them. So I was convinced.

I also bought a few small things for my apartment!

This chair, in the color shown:

I like sunny things and this will go great in my living room, with all the crazy colors that are there.

This table, in the color shown:

This is also for the living room, to keep by the sofa for setting things on.

And finally, this rug, in a runner size, for my hall:

I wanted to buy more, but I decided that I need to let my bank account recover before I purchase any more home furnishings.

I’m pretty excited! I’m having [info]samalander come over the weekend after next, and I’ll have at least a bed by the time she comes! I’m hoping to get my chair too because I’m having some people over while she’s here and sitting spots are a good thing to have, because otherwise people will have to be on my floor. Right now, I have between five and seven people definitely attending which may seem small to some of you but it is the most people I have had to my apartment since 2008. The rug and table can wait.

I went to a Tiki Drinks class at Amor Y Amargo last night, and that was pretty excellent! There was a LOT of booze but also excellent food and a very fun group.

[info]justatailor just texted me because she found THIS EVENT tonight. AND NOW WE ARE GOING.

CHICKENS. I GET TO SEE A LECTURE ENTITLED “IN PRAISE OF CHICKENS.” Oh my god, so awesome. I do love them. If you are in New York and free this evening, it is at 6 o’clock in Midtown and FREE. Free to learn about the chickens!

Also, I am really excited, I didn’t even know this place existed before just now. I mean, obviously I did on a certain level, because the New York Flower Show is famous, but I didn’t realize that they had a location or exhibits or anything like that, and those of you who read my blog posts frequently know that this is a topic of great interest to me. I sort of want to become a member. I’m wondering if I should get a family membership ($100) and share it with my parents. That comes with a subscription to an organic gardening magazine which I am sure they would enjoy.


I think that is all for now! There are some other things I want to tell you all about, but I will save that for another post.
