FMM - Odds and Ends

I figured it was time to do a few updates on some things I've posted.  First up is the last piece of our bedroom makeover - the throw pillow sham that was backordered until April.  Worth the wait:
It's from the Del Mar Coastal collection at Pottery Barn.  I love how the slight touches of dark orange pull everything together, from the art on the wall to the throw blanket.
One more shot - I am so happy with how the room turned out!  This was such a fun makeover.

Looking goooood on that coral blanket, Henry!

In case anyone is interested in my herniated disc saga, and my seizure saga (2019 can suck it and 2020 isn't much better, sheesh), I updated the bar under my blog header with links to all of of those posts.  It took me a while to get all of the herniated disc posts in the correct date order because there were so many of them.  While I didn't reread any, just seeing the titles reminded me of how much I went through with it.  Yes, the seizure was very scary, but the pain of the herniated disc is something I'll never forget.  That said, I hope I'm done with health issues now.  Enough is enough, right?

I've been meaning to show you my little ocean-themed air plant collection for a while now, so here you go:
They are hanging in my kitchen window - the puffer fish and the rainbow octopus are from a craft gallery in Capitola, California, and the sea urchin came from a local succulent shop here in town.

Have a great weekend!  Stay safe.

    1. LOL. So far 2020 is better than 2019...but still.

      Henry looks so good on that blanket. He and Paco tussle over who gets to sleep on it sometimes. Paco always wins, that bully. ;)

  2. 2020 is a collective suck, so at least you have company in your misery this time. Ok, maybe that isn't consolation at all. Sorry...

    Love your style! I need to just do it!

    1. Collective suck is an apt description for 2020.

    1. That pillow is what started the entire bedding ensemble. Funny that it was the last thing to arrive.

  5. I love that rainbow octopus - so cute! Yeah, I sometimes reread posts from my herniated disk and then say "why reread that crap. Bad enough going through it". ugh. 2020 can suck it for right now, too LOL!

    1. For real, rereading it reminds me of how long it took to feel better.

  6. I really hope you are done with those health issues too!

    Aww Henry! Coral IS a good look for you! Has he stopped throwing up?

    The bedroom looks so nice! You have such an eye for decorating!

    Speaking of plants, do you have any fake succulents or just real ones? I need to get some fake plants for a high shelf and was gonna ask for your advice.

    1. Henry has stopped throwing up, thankfully. He seems back to his old self, which is good for being 15 years old.

      I've gotten fake succulents (for places where it's too dark to keep live ones, like my hall bathroom) from TJ Maxx and Home Goods (a TJ Maxx sister store). If you're putting them on a high shelf you won't have to be quite as picky as if they were lower. They all come in pots so that's also something to consider.

    2. Oh good! And how about Paco?

      Oh yes! We have TJ Maxx. I can go there in a few months. Thanks!
