- flor store -

the new flor store on the westside is great! i just happened to walk by it today and decided to pop in. little did i know it was their opening day, which was totally random. the inside of the store looked awesome and they had tile samples spilling out onto the sidewalk!

they are right next to the west egg cafe, which is amazing!

- airport car rentals -

the new car rental facility at the atlanta airport is a really cool building! it’s probably been open for a while now, but i just went there for the first time recently. there is a lot of reflective glass and greenspace and the top floor offers access to the atl skytrain, which goes to the airport and convention center.

- nursery transformation: week nine -

we accomplished several things on our list this weekend… we finally made the roman shade for the nursery window as well as a cushioned seat cover for the built in bench. both were made from this cute fabric we purchased a while ago from whipstitch, an amazing fabric store here in town. we’ve included some step by step photos below. both projects turned out great!

we also received a rocking chair as a gift from gub’s mom this week, which resulted in re-arranging everything in the room once again. and we hung up a few pieces of artwork. slowly but surely, it’s coming together…

- nursery transformation: week eight -

we finished installing our shelves and started filling them with the treasures we have collected and received as gifts. our friend kristen hosted an amazing baby shower for us this past weekend at her shop treehouse kid & craft in athens. she has the most beautiful things in her store and our friends and family showered us with lots of wonderful goodies for the baby!

we are playing around with placement of things in this tiny room and we’ve moved the crib so that it sits on a diagonal, coming out from the corner… can’t decide if we like it this way yet or not. we still have a rocking chair on the way that needs to fit in here as well.

next on the to do list:
select and purchase a rug
make a cover for the seat cushion
make the roman shade for the window
make a mobile for over the crib

- record store day fun -

i had a blast at record store day 2011! i went to decatur cd, which worked out perfectly. they had all of the records i was looking for and lacked the long lines i would have dealt with at criminal records, where i went last year. there were live bands, free beer, community q bbq, king of pops, contests and a ton of cool vinyl to be had.

i heart record store day!

i ended up grabbing architecture in helsikiplaces like this on pink vinyl and an of montreal 12″ from polyvinyl records, as well as a new franz ferdinand covers 12″ on orange vinyl from domino records.

i have to admit i’m a little disappointed that record store day is becoming so reissue heavy though. here’s to more new releases on future record store days!

- record store day 2011 -

see you there!
