more green dreams

this lime moroccan leather pouf from serena and lily would also go great, but it’s WAY over our price range

Ottoman desire

Sometimes I find myself wishing I could make my own furniture or at the very least, sew. I know exactly what I want for our living room: a low, square, blue tufted ottoman that’s large enough to accommodate the area. I think we need to bring the blue together more in the living room, it’s soft so I don’t need to worry about A hitting his head on it, and what we have now is too small so only two people can put their feet up at a time and they have to be cozy.
The thing is I don’t even know where to look for something like that (it just occurred to me, that’s something Jonathan Adler would have) and even if I did, I probably couldn’t afford it. My goal is to one day become a DIY master and thereby avoid such dilemmas.

Sidenote: just put Aiden down for his morning nap and so far he’s been talking and singing to himself, despite his droopy eyes and numerous yawns when I actually put him in his crib- this always happens. He also learned two new words this morning: “messin” for medicine (he’s getting over a cold and intense teething) and I kid you not, “Fiona”-all three syllables. This is due to the little Shrek figurines that come with Cheerios and Aiden likes to have on his high chair tray while he eats. Sometimes he feeds them.

Poof we have a Pouf!

Okay, now that we have the color done, I want to replace the nursing stool I’ve been using as a footrest in front of the glider in A’s room with this pouf. It’s brighter in real life and A will love playing with it! It’s from CB2 and not really what we’re looking to spend, but maybe we can cut back somewhere else. I have been making coffee at home more often than going to Starbucks and I’m sure that adds up….
