Movin On Up to the Closet

First, how great is this window at the shop?! #BIA I didn't buy anything from the window... yet, but trust that I have my eye on several of those Santas. I have been so crazy busy trying to get caught up on everything and I'm not there yet. Since I haven't mentioned it, and it's better late than never, fat quarters are half off on Spoonflower until 10 PM EST tonight. I just made my new 2016 tea towels available for sale. Hot dog!

Things have changed since these photos were taken because our new space is already going well! I wish I would have done a before and after because the room used to be neon red and lime green. Without stuff it in, the red was blinding not to mention really hard to cover! I think we got most of it pretty well covered and I really love the butterprint turquoise with the jadeite green accent wall. I brought a BP bowl into Menards and asked them to match the color and the guy was really rude and said, "I guess we'll see what it does..." Um, okay, sorry that I asked you to make a color that isn't on a swatch. We walked around the store while it was mixing and when we came back my bowl was just setting on the counter unattended! Normally I like Menards over Home Depot because the people are generally nicer, but not this time.

We never would have been able to put out Christmas like this if we were still in our lone shelf situtation!

I love that we can have a dedicated area for the more manly things we pick up!

That shelf is how it all started. We got SO. MUCH. STUFF. out of the apartment!!! Condensing crap is still on my to-do list. The studio is almost walkable!

We've had all these awesome things setting in a pile leaning next to the shelf and nobody really ever dug through it. I'm so happy to finally get them all the attention they deserve! Every time I see that crewel I think to myself it needs to come back home with me, but I have nowhere to hang it right now... I'm okay if no one buys it.

We found this awesome lamp and shade at Goodwill several months ago and never had space to put it our old booth. We have so much space now! There's enough room to put even more stuff in it if we want and I finally got rid of all the bins of Pyrex! As someone who admittedly hoards Pyrex and struggles with where to put it all at home, I looked at the bins and bins of it that we brought in and claimed too much Pyrex! Just wait until I move into a house... UGH! The thought is horrifying, but it also can't come soon enough. 

Over our week off there were a lot of great finds that I'll share soon! I'm in the midst of catching up on thank you notes for the wedding and orders while trying to get all the Halloween picked up and packed away and simultaneously putting out Christmas because I can't deal with the mess of unpacking and repacking everyday decor two weeks later. I've started my Holiday Hutch and have a couple other shelves set up. The goal is to get the tree and outside solar lights up by the weekend. We have to work the Stroll at the shop on Saturday afternoon, too, so I expect I'll be busy busy busy through the holidays! Don't worry though because I'm a huge procrastinator so this is a perfect excuse to put down whatever I'm doing!
