Inspirations and Plans

I love the blogging community. I am so happy I decided to create a blog, not even for the benefit of being able to share things about me and my life, but definitely because I am able to be inspired by others. I love reading cooking blogs and getting book recomendations from blogs and being able to keep up with my friend's lives! But most of all, I adore reading decorating blogs! People are so creative and inspiring and it makes me want to make my space and home inspirational too! Most, if not all, of the decorating blogs I follow are very budget-friendly. I also was reading a People Style Watch last night and was inspired by a closet organization article. I love the book-worming blogs I follow too! So many great reading suggestions and wonderful reviews! So on my list of Projects and Inspirations:

1. Closet re-vamp and organization (This unfortunately will also probably involve me cleaning out under my bed. This is due to the suggestion that you store all out of season clothing in bins under the bed. *grumble*)

2. Take down my verticle blinds like this brave soul did here at Aisle to Aloha which currently cover this entire window-wall. (I can't tell you how much I passionately abhor verticle blinds).

3. Have a room like this: (And this is just dreaming)

4. Do some fall-scaping to my patio which currently looks like a dirtier, windblown version of this:

5. Read Speak by Laurie Halse Andersen. Because some nut-head thinks it needs to be censored. You can read about that here and here,

And just to be totally cheesy... I was listening to this song today and feel like it is the last 4 years of my life. The only thing to change would be the girl would be the one working through collge/from a small town and the fight wouldn't end in a street and his car would get towed out of her apartment complex at 2 in the morning. haha So- cheesin it up and appreciating that my hubby is the best thing that's even been mine.

i very much admire that you are going to take down your vertical blinds ... but are you allowed to do that? ikea has some sweet/cheap curtains that i use to cover our verticals since i'm pretty sure we'd have crazy fines if we took them down!

Yay! Take down those blinds! Of course you're allowed to--just put them back up when you move! :) Can't wait to see the 'afters' on that one.
