Tour Guide Barbie is "IN"...

I promised you all a long time ago that I would take you on a tour of the other rooms (all two of them) in our condo.
So, here are a few shots of the first room: My bedroom.
Which I cleaned just for you, by the way.

Our headboard is (was) an ugly metal piece that I slipcovered in a wheat colored linen because I couldn't stand looking at it anymore. I like how it turned out...
 Especially since it took about 5 minutes to make and cost about twenty bucks.

The ruffle throw is from Macy's.

The white quilt was an ebay find and I got this one for--get this--one measly dollar!
Seriously, the find of the decade.
Even if it did cost me $25 in shipping to get it here.
So worth it.
(I'm kinda falling in love with white quilts...I'll show you a project made out of them soon).

The black and cream ticking bedskirt is from favorite store on Maui (one of these days I'll take you on a tour'll's so great!)

And I love this ruffle pillow from Pier One.
It's sweet, soft, and creamy...

All of a sudden I'm hungry.

And just look at all these lovely ladies in their wool bathing suits.
(I think I feel an itch coming on...)

This is a view looking into our bathroom from our bedroom.
Which...has no door.
 So I hung a curtain.
(Look on the left).

My garbage can with the burlap liner with an old brooch (featured in a previous post) resides in my bedroom as well.

Hands down, favorite candle.
Japanese Quince.
Whatever that is.

This little number is actually a kitchen island that I turned into my studio table so that I could have a little space to create stuff. 
Pretty stuff.

And in a corner resides a basket where I store the fabrics that I hope to turn into said pretty stuff someday.

A ribbon jar (crammed with ribbon) sits on top of my kitchen island-turned-studio-table.

A petite little slipcovered chair. 
Seriously petite.

Oh yes, and finally, 
my favorite part...
bikes hanging from the ceiling in the middle of my bedroom.

Did I mention that I have no garage?

Subtlety is not his strong suit.

Gee...I wonder what Stockton wants...

Our (I mean, the boys) first bodyboarding/surfing competition.

The "dudes" waiting for the comp to begin.
Aren't they cute handsome?

Waxing the surfboard.
Very important if you want to stay on.

Ozzi getting some advice from his veteran surfing friend, Mack.

Ozzi getting "shacked".

Monkey see.
Monkey do.

My sweet friend, Jenn, with Michael, another friend, in the background.

Owwwwwieeeeee...a rash...
 Why rashguards were invented.

Ozzi made it through to the semi-finals and ended with a fourth place finish.
Way to go guys.
