And here are the hardwood floors I am going to order (it appears browner on-screen than it really is...really it's charcoal with a very little bit of brown in there)
AND ALSO, my girls came over this weekend (my first weekend NOT doing a wedding, so I actually got to socialize!) to see the house, and look what they bought me as a housewarming gift - this gorgeous piece of art! It will work perfectly with my new palette :) This is not a painting by the way...this is a paper cut out if you can belive it. The level of detail in it is insane. I took a close up to show you better how intricate the cutting is! Thanks girlies, you're the best :)
this is all just a paper cut out...can you believe the intricacy?
