slowly.. but surely ♥

I'm coming back lol.
I am officially on spring break!!
& plan on posting everyday this coming week.

I want to thank all of you (again) for sticking around
and following my blog, as well as inspiring me ♥
You all are amazing people, with amazing passion for what
you believe in, whether that be fashion, inter-design,
drawing, cooking, etc.

This week, one of my focuses is decorating
my apartment. I have been here for a year and 
I still feel like it is just not complete..
I would like to find a headboard or possibly make one,
I would like to find a nightstand,
create a new painting to hang over my dining table,
hang up pictures and create some other pieces for my walls.

Here are a few inspiration-pictures I have found:

I love everything about this room!!
the colors, the headboard, the comforter, the pictures on the wall.. 

I love the clothesline and clips, I would like to have
something like this by my desk..

I would love to learn how to make pillows like 
this one ♥

I love the gold frames, and the half-body dress forms
to display accessories..

this shabby-chic nightstand would be perfect! 

(some images via esty, please let me know if you know any of the others)

I will be visiting Homegoods, Marshals, thrift stores,
and possibly a swap meet next weekend to hopefully
find everything I need at the best bargain prices!

Wish me luck..

Unfortunately before turning in my final
Fashion Illustrations for my illustrating class
I did not take pictures, but I will get it back next week
to share the final work.
So all the work I promised to share will just have to wait :(

Happy Monday
