We went back to Cantia yesterday. I love that place. This visit was a little different. I didn't make Jorge walk about the store just so I could stare and ogle over all the pretty things. I had a list. A good thing for him.
The walls in our house aren't painted. Not even a base coat. So, if you lean against the wall it looks like the wall attacked you with a big chunk of chalk.
I'm not sure why the owners of the house never had it painted. We are actually the first people to live in the house. Jorge mentioned to the landlord about painting. She seemed OK with the idea but it seemed like she assumed we would pay. Without a base coat even on the walls, I wouldn't even want to guess how much it would cost for all the paint needed.
We have one blank wall in the living room. There are two small pictures hanging on the wall, but it just needed something. Plus, I needed a place for me to put all my books. They were stacked here and there.
Yesterday at Cantia I bought a somewhat solution to that. I got these two shelving units to put against that wall. I really like how it looks. And, it shows off how much crap I have.
I even gave Jorge space on the TV stand for all his cars. Now he can feel part of the decor. He loves his collection. We already had the talk with the girls (mostly Emily) that those cars are off limits for little hands.
Now that I have changed the look just a bit in the living room, it is time to rearrange the bedroom! I love rearranging furniture!
Oh, and just a FYI. I found some sweet corn! Jackie suggested looking at Waldo's ( a sort of dollar store). And sure enough, they had some!
I also scored this bag of Butterfinger goodness!
