hello everyone. how have you been? i know it's been a while since i've posted- and i don't really even have a good excuse! but i'm back now, and isn't that what really matters?
some of you may remember me mentioning how much i dislike our current apartment- it's sad but true. but take heart- those sad days are nearly over because we are moving! i am so excited i could actually jump for joy!
our new apartment is lovely. it's in a wonderful vintage building. it has hardwood floors, lots and lots of windows-several of them bay windows, a large bedroom and living room along with a dining room area. it even has a decent sized kitchen (something that can be hard to find in older buildings). i don't have photos right now, but as soon as i do i will post some so you can share in my excitement!
though our move is still several weeks away and it will be even longer before i'll have everything decorated- i'm already dreaming of what i want to do with each room, and how to use items i've been saving that can come out of storage. in the coming weeks i want to share my inspiration for the new place and i really want to hear what you think and would love links to anything you think i should check out!
today we'll start with the bedroom. i've already touched on my recent ideas for a more frontier-style bedroom, which i'll continue with...
we don't currently have a headboard and i would love to have one again.

our new bedroom is about three times bigger than our current postage stamp sized bedroom so we'll have room for a rug!

of course there's the always popular flokati rug. so warm and fluffy!
and i'm still on the hunt for new bedding. i'm leaning towards something wool and grey.

the front runner right now is this cozy blanket-a replica of vintage czech army blankets. i've found them locally, but white flower farmhouse has some too!
|katy elliot's macauslands blankets|
if i could splurge a bit, i would order one of these wonderful wool blankets from macauslands woollen mills in prince edward island. i heard about them through katy elliot and have been dreaming about them since.
so there's my bedroom inspiration. have any suggestions? i'd love to hear from you- comment below or send me a message!
the bestie and i are heading to portland, oregon for a little vintage girl's weekend on friday. keep an eye out for a new post next week with photos and treasures from our trip!
