Guess what I did two weekends ago? (Yes, this post is a bit late, but I've been busy at work and I'm catching up on blogging.)
1. Spent four hours at the local farmers market...without my phone... and with a boy. (Yep.) Fresh cherries and raspberries, and strawberry and mango salsa accompanied us home. (The cherries and raspberries didn't make it far though.) Have you ever tried strawberry salsa? De-lish.
2. The boy and I went back to my house and we put together my new Ikea bookshelf. (Read: HE put together my new Ikea bookshelf. I watched and handed him the tools.) I finally have a bookshelf...and she's beautiful. She fits perfectly in my room. I had a hard time deciding between the black and creamy white - but I ended up going for the creamy white. My room is a light taupe color and I have a ton of black pictures frames to hang up, so I wanted to keep things light. (Pictures to come.)
With all the books on my shelf, I wanted to spice things up a little... I found this idea on Pinterest:
See those two bookends? They're bricks...covered in fabric or paper, I can't tell. Isn't that great? The fabric here isn't my favorite, but I love the idea. I think I'd like to try this and see what kind of spice it adds to my room.
