Our Bedroom!

Hi, sorry for the absence! School and work takes up too much of my time.  I knew I wanted my next post to be some photos of our house and bedroom, but that meant I had to clean them first, har har!  So!  Today I'd like to share with you some photos of our room! And some of our house! :)

First, our kitchen! Our dining table and my latest painting of a women with a too long neck.  I left it there to dry, and haven't moved it yet... I should do that soon...  Anyway, The piece of art on the far left is a score from the thrift store.  It's made entirely of butterfly wings!  A little morbid, but very cool for only $8.50!  The awesome station-style clock is from Target.

Sink, stove, and countertop! A little bit messy because of roommates.  (We have four of them!)

Our bedroom! This is the view from the doorway.  (Not pictured: to the left is our 42" LED TV, to the right is our closet & bookshelf!)  Our room is very small, as are all the bedrooms in this house, but at least we have a private bathroom!  I can't remember the exact square footage of our room, but I think it's about 150 sq. ft?

Our very messy bookshelf.  One day I'll go through and organize it... but that's a project that will have to wait until midterms are over!

My shelf! I collect Lalaloopsy toys - Suzette is my only big doll.  I have a bunch of little ones I'll take photos of sometime!  (Behind her you can also see my favorite manga of all time!)

Olin's shelf.

My necklaces.

My little space next to my bed! Postcards and pretty things go up here. Also a photo of me and some co-workers from Target.

Detail of our paper lanterns and lights!

That's all I have for today... I'll take more photos of the rest of our house, our porch, and our garden soon!



  1. You have a lovely room! <3

    1. Ahh, thank you! <3 I wish it was a little bit bigger, but I'm kind of having fun working with such a small space!

  2. I love your home! It seems so cozy and the colors are great.

    1. Thank you!! :) I hope to take more photos to show off our (equally small) living room, basement, and porch soon! The kitchen is my second favorite room though - so nice to just sit and drink tea in!

  3. I'd like to see garden pictures! :)

  4. OH MY GOODNESS!! SO pretty! I wish my bedroom looked HALF as nice! But it is VERY blah - I had some storage thingies that were hanging out in the hall and making it all narrow-like and I hated it because it looked more cluttered when people came over... Eventually I started cleaning them out and ended up putting them (there were two) on either side of the bed for keeping books and meds and as a bedside table for Marco and I! :D I felt SO PROUD of thinking of it and it makes our bedroom look 50% more cozy, which is crazy... But it's still butt-ugly-boring... Still, nice to have. :D And GREAT for all my books that pile up by my bedside. I really hope to do something nicer in our new bedroom in a year (when Eva and us are moving to the brand new FULLY DETACHED house she bought FOR LESS THAN OUR SEMI-DETACHED HOUSE... Heh... Any style/decorating advice? I REALLY like your space!

    AND OH MY GOSH, YOU GOT SUZETTE!!!! I AM SOOOO (SEWWWWWWWW) HAPPY FOR YOU! I HAD NO IDEA!! I was so sad that you missed her and I was shopping around online to see what the best price you could get for her would be! I'm glad you found her! Did you get her online or in the store!? :D (PARAKISS!! XD I miss reading ParaKiss when it was new to me... T3T I wish I could go read it now, but I JUST LEFT MY HOUSE AND I'M ON THE TRAIN AGAIN! *0*;;;; WAAAHHH~!)

    I love your station clock! My mum has one in her basement (because it's awesome down there :-=) and I want oneee~! Was it hard to install? :O

    You have the prettiest lanterns; I like how you draped a dark colour behind them - it really helps hide the wires, which is my pet peeve with lanterns. SO PRETTY but UGLY wires. T_T; I have some lanterns that I would LOVE to do that with, but they have WHITE cords! ;0; What should I do?! I like your lanterns better, though - they have more than one colour! Mine are all one colour. ;3; And your glass ones (or plastic?) are gorgggggeous. I've never seen ones like that for sale!

    I hope you'll post more photos; these are so beautiful... It feels like a different world in there!
