Where I'm at... (blog hop)

As I was madly catching up on over a week's worth of blog posts (sorry guys), I came across a fun link-up on A Little Something, hosted by Marine Parents.

Just like the next girl beside me, I love interior design. I seek to create a functional space that's organized, has clean lines, and is centered around colors that flow well together. I'm constantly drawing out inspiration from Pottery Barn, Ballard Design, Coastal Living, and DIY magazines.

This is my "blogspot".

The Desk

I bought this desk for Ron with the money I made off of selling my first painting! (It sold for $650- you know, before the economy decided to take a dive head first into the shallow end of the pool. Good times.) We've been wanting an executive style desk for quite some time, so when I came across this one, I jumped at the opportunity to surprise my husband.
