updates :)

Yikes-a-roo! My ankle hurts sooo much worse today and is not looking so hot either. Check it out:

Seriously, watch for curbs :) lol
Thank goodness I had all of these inspirational blogs to look at and read today or I would have gone insane, laying in bed all day!! An extra thank you to Vivs for chatting with me online forever today :) Chatting with Vivs=always a good time!
I also had this little sweetie pie sleeping next to me and gaurding me all day :) loooove her:

I finally got so restless that I went into cleaning mode and decorating mode :) Here are some new pictures of what I did in my living room today :)

My favorite garage sale find from this past weekend was this antique shipping crate! I love it and it now holds the television that we never watch! lol.

I finally put up my Ashley G. montage above my sweet pink rocking chair:

love her style <3
And here is what I am thinking for the mantle above my fireplace. I am not sure about it yet but I am thinking that I really like it a lot. I have collected old cameras for as long as I can remember. I have actually gotton rid of a lot of them but stumbled across these in my china cabinet (weird!). Here is the full picture and then I will show you each of them individually :) They are really sooo cool!

I also re-organized one of my shelves. Here is a quick shot of it:

and one more photo montage of my favorite photographer Les Slesnik!! Favorite!!

Yay! The living room is definitely coming along well. My ankle is officially mad at me for not resting it so I am off to elevate and ice. Thank you again to all of the amazing ladies who guest blogged here today at Run With Scissors. You ladies are amazing and so inspiring and I appreciate you all so much!!!
