Oh my goodness, I am so, so, so happy it is Friday! I need to have five minutes to relax. I swear that after these last few days I am making a vow, to save more trees. We have 4 boxes of mail from the last 21/2 months, and in addition to the normal bills, and personal correspondence we had two boxes of catalogs and magazines. So on my list for next week is to get our name on the "do not mail list" for catalogs. I should have taken a photo because the stack of catalogs is at least a foot high, as for magazines I counted 40( I think I have a sickness) but at least I do not have enough to cover my walls like the image below.
What are your plans for the weekend? I am picking out paint chips for a guest room and a bathroom. The bathroom just had granite installed and the guest room is something that I have had on my mind for awhile. I am using lots of plaid, leather and hunting scenes. I had the pillows, the bed cover and the dust ruffle and curtains made while I was in Milwaukee and am now ready to move forward. And today I purchased the most beautiful Jacobean cabinet. Things are coming together!
The house still looks like a wreck, I am hoping to be unpacked, have the laundry finished, the 10 boxes which I had shipped here unpacked( I did manage to shop at a few antique stores while in Milwaukee), and all of the mail opened and answered. Aside from that I am going to do a little baking to relax!
I made these cupcakes last week before I left Milwaukee, they are fabulous, if I do say so myself. If you like chocolate than you will love these cupcakes, the Chocolate Butter cream frosting is my favorite new recipe. All of the information is on my other blog, Once Upon a Chocolate Life.
Enjoy the weekend! I cannot wait to hear what you are up to!
