My precious new nephew, Clark, on his birthday. He is now nearly two months old and is probably the sweetest, easiest baby I could imagine. Almost enough to make me consider having a child at some point. Almost.
Cody and I went through our house about a month ago, counting pieces of furniture that we actually picked out and bought ourselves. In the entire house - three bedrooms, living room, breakfast room, dining room, study, and media room - there are two pieces; a little stone coffee table that actually belongs outside, and our bed.
So these shelves are from Pottery Barn, a place that, upon entering, makes us feel as if we are hemorrhaging money, and therefore is not our normal shopping haunt. However, my parents gave us (last Christmas!) a $250 gift certificate to PB, and since there is not ONE substantial furniture choice at Pottery Barn for $250, we were stuck either buying two vases and some small decorative item off the sale table, or waiting it out. And our patience paid off, because about a month ago we found out that Pottery Barn had put their superbly beautiful, hand-carved, deep set crown-molding shelves on sale. A set of three! So now our new shelves that we bought ourselves (with money that was given to us, so what) fill up the huge empty blank on the living room wall that we had no idea what to do with.
