Look What I Got!

The first time I saw it, I fell in love with the print. I decided to follow the blog, Bright, Bold, & Beautiful I loved the print that much. Then I found out the print was called Sex and the City, and it became a little obsession for me. Lastly, I got to know the lady behind the blog, Laura Trevey, the artist behind this watercolor, and it became a must have right now.

As I have mentioned previously to you, My John recently took our smallest bedroom and turned it in to a huge closet for me. A dressing room, with custom built shoe, handbag, and accessories shelving. Before he was a Captain, his title was Master Carpenter, and I'm a lucky girl. It's not quite done yet, but when it is, I will do a little looksie for you here at the swing.

It came time to paint the closet. I coordinated the paint, around this picture. A soft butter not quite yellow, but along the lines. The recesses are being painted the exact color blue of the dress above. Yes, I loved it that much.

to go to Laura's Etsy shop, I'm not even going to tell you what all is there, go and see. Here's a hint, I love the blue shoe!

When I received the print in the mail it was even more spectacular as I could almost feel the ruffles of the red dress brushing against me. I am in search of the perfect sapphire frame.
Laura also enclosed a hand written note, that I will cherish from my time here in the blog world.

Happy Weekend,
The Bumpkin

Will the Captain travel to MN? I would LOVE a new spare room/closet myself. I'll cover mileage and will furnish Totinos pizzas and Miller Light while he's here. Please ask if he's interested.

Oh wow, you are so lucky! I'm so excited for your roomy closet. =) I would love to have one someday. I would have mine painted in fuschia pink with a little dresser too. =)

You are so lucky! Oh, wow, I would LOVE to have a custom-built dressing room! My husband is a coffee roaster, and that is nice, but still, a dressing room!

Lovely blog you've got here, I'm definitely following!

Dying---love that print. I am going to have to peek at her shop...but I am scared it could be dangerous...but it is my birthday...oh yeah, I keep using that excuse. I am so jealous of a dressing room and big closet....maybe I need to send a kid off to military school or move out of California.
