We're ba-aaack! We've spent the last few days driving and driving and setting up shop here in our favorite collge town. And while I promise not to share yet another post about all my stuff {that I have been sooo soooo happy to see again}, I just wanted to share a couple bits of the new and improved. {excuse the crap shots that are my camera phone} 1. Doesn't look like much from here, but I was pretty proud of that bookshelf when I was done unpacking our books. Actually made our mis-matched collection look somewhat organized. 2. This is less "new and improved" and more, "we'll make it work for now" ... when we made the switch to a two bedroom, we gave up our dining room and inherited a bar, minus the stools. So we sit on fluffy pillows to make up the difference. We call it classy ghetto. 3. I've always wanted to make a wall collage, but never thought I had the right stuff to pull it off. So I recycled some old frames, updated the pictures in some others, threw a little Degas painting in the mix and whallah! Aesthetic touch down. 4. It's not pretty, but it's organized and it's mine allll mine! Two bedroom apartment bonus? TWO. CLOSETS. Can I get an amen!?! 5. Again, nothing fancy. But I sure missed my vintage white jewelry box.

Dorthy got it right man, there's no place like home.
