purses, and shoes, and boxes- OH MY!

These lovely teal open-toed shoes and matching purse were a Christmas gift from my mom, the enabler! She also gave me a case of 20 of the Container Store's plastic shoe boxes. I of course need many more than 20 boxes to store all my shoes, but these will be a lovely start and will be used for those shoes not currently housed in their original boxes. Thanks Mom!

I'm finally back from FL where I spent a lovely week with my husband vegetating and doing some light decorating. We didn't tackle painting after all as it was unseasonably cold in Pensacola, but we did tinker with some furniture. Many many thanks to the Waterfront Rescue Mission Bargain Center which accepted donation of an old couch, loveseat, coffee table and end table that I've been lobbying to dump for years! We picked up a lovely armoire on CL that fits on the now empty bedroom wall and will handily hide the TV in that room. We also got this storage ottoman to hold throw blankets in the living room (though my husband may move it to the foot of the bed instead).

Today my mom, sis and I went to see Spamalot at the National Theater courtesy of Christmas present tickets from my husband. I highly recommend the show which had me in stitches for two straight hours; even my mom (who is no fan of Monty Python) was rolling in her seat.

This all sounds super. The storage ottoman is great -- I really like that style.

(Your mom knows you well... great shoes and bag!)

Welcome back!
