Moving Images

I know, I know. People are visual for creatures. You need pictures. But I've grown so comfortable being anonymous here that it feels weird to suddenly start posting pictures of my real life. Not that I'm holding back. In fact, I reveal more about myself here than I probably should. But pictures of me, my boyfriend, our home...that seems just a little, well, creepy.

But what the hell. Here are a few pics of my recently blogged about bathroom. I know it doesn't look like much. The space is just too small to allow for a good angle. But trust me, it's yummy.

And the final image is a little "moving tableau" I stumbled upon our first day trying to sort out our mashed-together mess of boxes. I thought it sort of summed up our merging of households: cats, wine paraphernalia and packing tape. I probably should have thrown in my knitting needles or a tennis racket to balance it out with more me stuff, but then it wouldn't have been a truly organic tableau now, would it?

Enjoy, and thank and/or blame Mimi for me posting the pictures. I just can't say no to her!

The chocolate brown and ice blue bathroom with feminine shower curtain and butterfly paintings -- all OK'd by Wine Guy.

Moving tableau - cat cookie jar, wine glasses, bottles,
and other drinking paraphernalia - accented by packing tape.

The bathroom looks great :)

Congratulations on your move.

Post a picture of the cats :) I'd like to see how they get along!

bathroom looks really nice, but i would be wary of leaving the bathmat on the floor like that. the feuding cats might find it really tempting.

if you want to truly de-genderize a room, my decorating tip is to go for plainer rather than fancier.

i can't believe you hate shopping at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond, which most people love shopping at, even if they hate shopping at other places!!

I love the blue and brown. We did it in our bathroom, it is huge and was a very sterile white. We painted the walls a tropical blue than moved ahead with the blue/brown. It looks so much better. I wish I hated shopping at Target, I would have a lot more $$ in my pocket right now.
