please mr. postman ...

Last week I received a couple exciting packages in the mail - some OPI nail polish, my new cell phone and those boots I was lusting over.

This coming Monday I'm expecting another delightful shipment of goodies to help us decorate our new place. I can hardly wait!

I ordered a nice little bundle from Urban Outfitters ...

1. Some new curtains for the living room. These are a necessity to help keep out the boogeyman! John didn't want curtains because he didn't want to cover up the French doors but I convinced him that I don't want to be scared for my life at night -- and especially when he goes away on business trips. Plus, we'll keep the curtains tied back during the day to let in lots of light and show as much of the French doors as possible. Hopefully when the curtains arrive, they'll work for the new place!



2. A window valance for the kitchen. We had already bought a really cute damask valance that I love but I couldn't resist buying this one as a backup for later on because it's so kitschy adorable and it was on sale for $5! Love it.


3. A funky cool lampshade. One thing I don't love about the new place is there's no overhead lamps in either of the bedrooms or the living room so lamps are important stuff! These birdies are funny. I like em!


4. A jewelry organizer. John said hammering nails into the wall to hang up my necklaces was no longer AOK. Once I saw this on UO's Web site I knew it was perfect! So cute!


5. And just for fun, a new top for me! Woo! I'm sure it will fit just right because my two fav tops ever are also by Kimchi Blue. I love that brand!


So, please Mr. Postman ...
Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postman ... Please Mister Postman, look and see ... If there's a package in your bag for me...

Yay for fun mail!

I love those boots! I need to buy some like that because I can no longer wear heels (thanks to my clumsiness and spraining my ankle twice since June).

And I love your curtains and lampshade. Adorable, can't wait to see pics!

such cute stuff, makes me want to go on a shopping spree for things to decorate my house with. Such great finds from Urban. I love the drapes they colors are really going to be perfect during the day to lighten up the room and perfect at night for keeping out the boogie man.

Talia said...

you are right, fun mail is THE BEST. That's why I love ordering things too! :)

That lampshade is to die for. As are the kitschy curtains. Your place is going to be SO funky-cute!! Be sure to take pictures and show us when all this lovely stuff is in place. :)

That lampshade is fantastic - what a fun bundle to receive!

Steph said...

Those kitchen curtains = ADORABLE! So fun. I love how I can look at all of that and picture you just going nuts over it. I'm going to invite myself over to your house. It's final.

Oh, goodness. I was absolutely everything on there. It's an issue.

:)

I've been drooling over their curtains for ages now, and was hoping to get some with my bonus this year, but apparently we're not getting much of a bonus this year due to the economy. Stupid economy, ruining my plan for expensive curtains!

You'll have to take photos when all this goodness is in your place. Love it!
