THAT is THE bed I am looking for that will make my new single-lady bach pad absolutely fabulous. I'm stealing this.

You have NO idea. I was just talking about sconces too....I can't even put in print what crimes this bed makes me want to commit.

happy birthday fiona! hope you love the nutcracker--we would always take my daughter and her friends for "tea" after seeing it (would have been CRAZY ants in the pants if the girls would consume all the teacakes and sweets beforehand!)

The floors are amazing, but that bed OMG! It's spectacular!

Happy Birthday Fiona. Hope the show is magical!

Jenny, If you haven't made them yet... warning... they're super hard to cut. Just cut a few layers at a time... then cut the next few layers. And don't go for perfect rounded edges, you'll never get them, but once they're opened you won't be able to tell. And be careful fan-ing them opened-- my tissue paper tried to tear every second of the party! But they'll be hanging high and you won't be able to tell at all! Happy Birthday to Fiona... I hope you share party pics!!

What a beautiful place. I love grey on a wall. I have my bathroom painted grey.

I want to have sex on that bed RIGHT NOW. If you're free.

mb said...

Well, Happy Birthday Fiona. The Nutcracker is wonderful. What a great memory for you and your mom. Enjoy every beautiful second.

I really like the backround painting of the scene you showed from the nutcracker Jenny. I love love love the color palette. I want to paint paintings like that. Just saying. I dream about painting paintings like that.

Oh the rental. Man o man. I never came across a rental like that. It seems like the renter and the landlord were a match made in heaven. Win win.

having that many clean white towels in my bathroom is how I'll know I'm in heaven!

Sarah Klassen said...

Ohhhhh myyyyy...just stunning! Goodness me -- love this place :)

AppleTree said...

the tree on the table is so perfect. I am picturing my kids holding hands, swaying in a circle, singing carols around it, whoville style.

and I want those exact floors. how do i get those? is it super expensive reclaimed wood? will they give me splinters? will the dirt get stuck in the cracks in between? enlighten me, someone.

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

the kitchen reads a little cold to me, but I'm otherwise foaming at the mouth over all that glorious grayness!

What was Fiona's fave part of the Nutcracker??? Clara? Land of the Sweets? Snow fairies?
For me, it's always a tie between the dancers representing "Tea" and The Russian!

Giovanna said...

LOVE those gray walls...and that bed is fabulous.

I bet that bitch has some incredible sex on her bed.

Hi Fiona,

Love you blog, but as a true southern girl, you should watch your language. It makes you seem less feminine and not classy. This should be your goal for the new year!

I'm just saying....it's awkward when you try too hard to be "cool". OK?

my favorite and my best said...

oh anon!!! fiona is my daughter you silly goose!! i am JENNY...JEEEENNNNYYYYY!!!!!
and i am not classy. but sometimes i am KLASSY! and i have a penis so i am clearly not feminine either. and i will tell you what i tell everyone else who has a problem with my language. this is MY blog and i will say fuck if i need to as it simply is the best word out there for driving a point right the fuck home, if you know what i mean. and i think it might be awkward for you to read the word fuck. but it is never awkward for me to be cool. bc i am the coolest mother fucker on the planet.
"just sayin".
xxooo
JEEEENNNNYYYY! not fiona.

i agree the rental apartment is well done, but you know all of those fucking throw rugs are just covering parts of the shitty carpet where previous tenants have let their dogs and cats poop and pee. i know this because that's what i used to do when i lived in a rattrap apartment, and that's what i find when lowbrow fucktards move out of my units. that said, thanks for the laughs over the last few days; i needed them. you are indeed a bad ass motherfucker. thanks, and happy holidays.

Love the blog answers to this post! LOL!!

I love dark grey with white. And I like the use of many rugs-it looks great, but in my house my cat would l have a wonderful time scrunching them all up.
