I'm back from Washington. I had planned on posting a few times while I was there, but my internet access was patchy and I was just too darn busy hanging out with the family....and making trips to Pottery Barn, Ikea, local antique stores and some fun festivals. I love the area for decorating. It's not that hard to find cool items at affordable prices, unlike what I've found here in Alaska.
That said, it is lovely to be home. While we had great weather in Washington during the visit, the pace of life is much busier. I am enjoying the snow and quiet here. Life is calm and slower than in the lower 48.
I have so much to share regarding the trip, but I don't have a lot of time right now. I got our new pellet stove installed yesterday; just in time for our -15 degree low we're having tonight.
Sorry for the ugly, "unstyled" photo...
Tomorrow, my couch is supposed to be picked up. Yes, we're selling the lovely curved sofa that I am in love with. It's gorgeous and stylish, but it is not fitting into our lifestyle or space. So I decided to bite the bullet and sell this beauty. I'm hoping that even with the money loss I'm taking on it, I can replace it with a decent set from one of the local stores. We need more room in the house and that's the primary reason.
I'll be back in the next couple of days with thoughts on my trip and new "find" photos. I had so much fun shopping!!
