globes, a shelf, and a rocking chair ...

Photobucket

as i said before, we just finished our basement.

i'm still organizing and trying to get everything in its place.

over the weekend we finally were able to get to ikea to pick up an expedit shelf to organize all of our toys. it was fun for me to finally put up all my globes i've been collecting over the past three years. i also was able to pick up a modern rocker that i've been wanting forever. [thanks caitlin!]

i quickly threw all the toys up on the shelf. so, i'm sure it will change a bit, but it's really nice to have it all in one area. now, if it would only stay organized. but, with these two kids... that's just not going to happen.

oh well, can't have it all right?

as far as other things going on, i'm in deep party planning mode for ezra's party this weekend.

i've been re-labeling just about everything.

caitlin sent me over a label from her son's party last year that i tweeked a bit to match ezra's party, so that really helped speed up the process!

i'll share more pics of the planning tomorrow!

liz stanley said...

love your play area--i realllly need to organize ours!

It's so cheerful! I love it. And I'm curious about your chair: I've been going back and forth about white molded Eames style chairs (whether of not a look a like could be okay or if it's really worth getting an authentic Herman Miller design??).

Loving all your posts this week Caroline...I'm in inspiration overload just from looking at your blog alone! Lovely, lovely, lovely.

thanks guys!

i'm glad you all like it!

megan, the wire baskets are from urban outfitters. i found them in the clearance area about six months ago, so i'm not sure if they still sell them.

the white rocker is an eames replica. it seems nice so far, but we just picked it up the other day so we'll see how it holds up.
