Progress is the best motivator...

I know I've been neglecting the blog, but I have piles of grad school application thingys, a new job (a research assistantship involving a VERY cool project related to the 1968 Chicago Democratic National Convention and artists) and some super exciting apartment developments...can you blame a girl for getting distracted?

To be more to the point,

I finally put my curtains and mirror up and assembled/painted my coffee table (uh, thanks, Dad!). Ecstatic is one word to describe the way I'm feeling right now...the curtains are even more Josef Frank-like than I had hoped and the table, which until a few days ago existed only in my imagination, is even better than I ... you guessed it, had hoped!

The photo looks a little faded on Blogger, the colors are more vibrant than this. Click here for more pictures and explanations from me.

I adore those curtains--where are they from!?

IKEA, believe it or not -- $60 and they are even lined!!
Yes, I am smug about this...I am very happy with my new curtains and was very impressed by the rather un-IKEA quality.

Fantastic curtains and table!!! Not what I'd consider "my style", but I love them, and they look perfect in the room. What a delight for you (I love it when things a person plans turn out well, and even better than they had hoped!)

I really really like the yellow of that table...

(you deserve to be feeling smug!)

May I link you on my Cure blog? I'm at http://serenityathome.blogspot.com I "dropped in" after being at Mella's.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, laure, beth and curing! I'd like this part of my apartment even if no one else did, but it's nice to know that's not the case...it's so great when you produce a space that works, that feels warm and personal. That is what I'm going for. This is my first apartment, so I'm a total newbie at this - which makes the whole process even more exciting.

Beth, feel free to link me! I have been so bad about linking other people. I'm going to get together a whole list of new links owed, and you will be sure to be on it ;)
