It's called decorating.

Saturday project day.

So I have had a bad week. I haven't slept in 5 days, and that just makes life stink. But I have been having fun shopping (way too much). I keep getting little things for my house. I think I get little things (and I get excited about little things) because the big things just freak me out so much. I mean, an $800 6-foot-long couch. That's a commitment! But I can commit to little things.

On this Saturday project day, I planted a few little things. I bought a basil plant and a tomato plant from Lowe's. I planted the tomato deep, because it was leggy, and pinched back the basil, so it won't start blooming. I'm hoping they last. But then this morning I went out to the local farmer's market, and bought a tomato plant from a nicer farmer man out there. All the vendors were so friendly. But one lady tried really hard to sell me pasta and wouldn't even let me get in my "is it gluten-free" question for a while.

Also on this Saturday project day, I tried a new design element. So tell me what you think. To explain, I have the very open wall of my kitchen. It's good, I like it, but Heather was telling me about a friend who has all his pots on open shelves in the dining room. Well, (as soon as I get a dining room table) mine is too narrow. So I was thinking about this. I tried it all week with just one shelf to see how traffic flowed (yeah, one person in this house and I am traffic). I'm not sure how I feel about it. Feedback is welcome.
