Spring Bedding Came Early, Coffee + Tea Bar, and Blue Felt

I've been busy re-arranging and making some changes in my bedroom, but to tide you over until the full reveal I thought I'd share a few of those changes with you this morning.  As you can see above, the beige and black damask is gone.  Normally this colorful quilt doesn't make an appearance until March or April (it's my springtime/summertime bedding)... but I have warmer weather, sundresses, and singing birds on the mind so it returned early.  Maybe spring will, too!  As soon as I threw the colorful quilt and pillows on the bed, I couldn't help but dance a happy jig.  Color, pattern, and flowers will do that to a girl. ;)

This next update might just be the best thing I've ever done in my room.  While rummaging my closet, I came across my tiny (and barely used) coffee pot that I'd stored away when I found out my roommate already had one.  I decided I needed a coffee/tea bar in the corner of my room.  (Because going all the way down to the kitchen is just too much.  And I like the convenience.)  I keep a filtering pitcher of water quite fresh and a tray of Earl Gray, Irish Breakfast, and Seattle's Best coffee well stocked.  This little corner is one of life's luxuries right now.

Lastly, I have a call for help.  Besides the fact that this may or may not be the creepiest photo I've ever taken of myself... I have a @#$%-ton of blue felt.  What's a girl to do?  Tell me.  What should I make out of this stuff?

That's all for now, folks!  My room is 90% in order right now (a rarity) so I'm going to try to snap full-tour pics this weekend.  Have a lovely Saturday and Sunday!  xoxo.

I kind of thought that was a snuggie. haha I have one, and it's the same exact royal blue color. :) and I love your wall art!

I saw this on Pinterest and immediately thought of your blue felt!

You could sew a three quarter sleeve jacket with it for when the weather reaches that in-between temperature, and line it with something satiny, in a complimenting print (I'm thinking a light blue and green on ivory ditsy floral).


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
