leaving on a jet plane

heading out tonight for a much-needed break in the U.S. may be scarce around here until I'm back in Saudi in August. Happy summer everyone!

10 days and counting

Brad left a few days ago on vacation, and I'll be heading back to the U.S. in ten days for my leave (our timing didn't mesh up for a variety of work related reasons). I had in mind that I would use this time alone oh so productively in the house. I would organize, unpack boxes, rearrange closets, sort through clothes for donation- the list goes on and on. In the six days Brad has been gone, I've accomplished nothing on that list. Now I have only 10 days left to get things rolling.

Time to get motivated!

The Chair I Just Can't Live Without Despite Its Lack of Style


If you want to read the whole post, it is over at Apartment Therapy DC. I was delighted to learn (a) that lots of other people love their papasan chairs, and (b) that lots of other people have a piece that they love despite its lack of style. I was surpised that people had opinions on both the bookcases and the rug. The bookcases are Drexel Heritage and not my style, but they came with the house. The rug is a handmade Mahi Tabriz that I bought years ago in Kuwait; it is one of my favorite pieces and I was shocked by the number of people who thought it was the problem piece in the room! Just goes to show, everyone has a different style and different design aesthetic...
