The dollar was doing good, Victoria's Secrets had a sale, and I'm well stocked up with my favourite line of body wash, lotion, and sprays.And I need it for all the slaving away I've been doing getting the computer/storage/other tv room redone. I just realized as I looked at this picture, not much of the stuff used to re-decorate the room is new. The frames from Ikea are. Everything else is handed down, Grandpa's chair, coffee and end table (retro). The yellow chair if from my Sunday school at the Japanese United Church I attended as a child. The school desk was mine from when I lived at home. Half the things on the wall are from thrift stores. The real cost was the paint. It's grey. I can't tell. It's such a weird colour. But it goes with everything. I'm starting to love it.
