Whistle While You Work...

the frame project continues....

and I'm SUPER excited to finally have found a pillow set up on the bed that I like.  I've been playing around with various throw pillows for months.  I think, for now, we have a winner with these shams I purchased from West Elm this weekend.
I felt bad about tossing the blue pillows from the bed so they are on the ottoman in the meantime.  Looks so much better.  I also rolled down the duvet so the bed wouldn't be as puffy looking.  Still a work in progress but I like it 10 times better than how it looked before.

Okay, back to work. Time to do some measurements on the wall!

I am officially addicted to yoga.  I've been going for about four months now and I literally do NOT like missing my weekly yoga classes.  It has become a high priority and my body actually misses it when I miss my regular classes.  I love yoga so much that I've been thinking of ways to incorporate it into my work routine and guess what, there are ways to enjoy yoga at work! So passing on some of the things I've found!

There are so many cool ways you can incorporate yoga at work as seen above here.  These websites here and here also give some examples.  Whose with me?! Who will add at least one stretch or posture at their desk with me?  (although, you may want to close your door before trying some of these!) 

Speaking of postures.  I am dreaming of the day when I have enough yoga strength to master these babies!

how cool do these look?!! my upper body strength is getting better and better with each passing week.  So, in about, hmmmm...5 years I should be able to do this!

In the meantime, let's keep it simple with some yoga at the desk!!

whose with me?,

Three images above can be found here.

Writings on the Wall...

The next bedroom project is underway--the wall gallery!  While in Charlotte for work on yesterday I made a trip to IKEA to pick up one of each size of the RIBBA frame.   The goal was to make newspaper cut outs of each size and determine what layout I want and then go to IKEA next week while in Atlanta to purchase the exact frames that I will need.  

I've become semi-obsessed with wall galleries thanks much to Pinterest and a few blogs.  

Super cute right?  Anywho, here's an iPhone sneak peak at what's going on over here:
It's coming along!

Yay for Projects,

p.s. all wall gallery pictures above can be found on my "Frame It" Pinterest album.
