I just can't help myself! The built in NOOK is ALMOST done. The mercury glass pendant is going to be wired this evening by an electrician friend...dying to see that up! So I thought I'd show you some things that MIGHT make it into the nook. The item I ordered from my photo lab won't be here till the 8th and that's what the rest will revolve around but I still thought I'd show you a couple fun things!  A week back or so I showed you this uber cool goodie!

I absolutely LOVE this miniature windmill. It works and it's just so dern cute! I've been in love with this piece forever and I'm not kidding when I tell you I almost had to PRY it out of Bob's hands 'cause he loves it too!  He cracks me up because sometimes he really has a very DIFFICULT timing selling you something he loves.  BTW, almost everything I'm going to show you is from my friend BOB at The Old Curiosity Shop. I might have Matt cut off the Pabst part of the sign but he doesn't really mind it. BUT I LOVE the saying! This old scale is just fun and the Victorian pulls on top of it are going to have a new use...but you'll have to wait and see what that is!

Photos are going to fill in most of the wall area and I had them printed off the other day. I need to redo Macy's because the color is a bit off...or maybe redo Cosmo's, not sure which color I like better.  Cosmo might be a bit too Sepia.  Anyway, not really sure which ones I'm using yet. I pulled a bunch of old frames out of the basement that I'm going to either paint flat black or Heirloom White...I can't decide! I can't WAIT TO SHOW YOU THE FINAL REVEAL!!! I'm so excited! Can you tell?

Here's some news about my back so if you don't feel like hearing about it, you can turn around now! I figured out today that I've been wearing my new back brace upside down for the past 4 months or so. How stupid is that? When I put it on this morning the correct way it is SO much more comfortable! Major Blonde moment there my friends! It was 4 weeks from my surgery yesterday, so I'm finally able to start to do a bit more. A. BIT. That really just means I'm supposed to WALK farther! ;-) Better than nothing!
