New Apartment Updates

Wow, how time flies! I can’t believe we’ve been in our new apartment for almost a week! I’ve been totally inconsistent with my blogging but I’ve been so busy. I’ve been taking pictures of some of my favorite parts of the new place, so here they are:

Mums are my favorite fall flowers so I had to get some to put by the front door

I really love decorating and I’m happy that Ben let me take charge apartment decor. I already have a pretty big collection of awesome things to hang on walls, including, but not limited to, my vintage sign collection:

I hung these up in the dining area, right above the table. They add a lot of color to an otherwise bland nook and I think they’ll be a great conversation piece when new people come over. I’ve had most of these for years, but I’ve never gathered them all up together before; I really like the result.

IKEA is such a great store. Ben and I went ham there on Saturday and got all new couch pillows, more shelving, wine glasses, this new duvet cover, and the cute little porcupine playing piano pillow! I really dig the alliteration of that.

We also bought this dope lampshade and clock. It was hard to take a good picture of it that also showed the clock reasonably well, but the inner coating of the shade is copper, and it shines through and looks really pretty.

The apartment is still very much a work-in-progress but it’s coming together really well and I couldn’t be more happy about it!
