Boudoir/Dressing room inspiration

Yay! I found some great dressing room inspiration pictures. We have a teeny 6' x 12' spare room that we currently use as our "junk" room. Whenever we can't find a place for something, we put it there. Or we end up storing our bikes in it. It's a really bad habit! My super sweet bf has agreed to let me use the extra room as my walk in closet ;-D (Really buttering him up right now...)

Truth be told, my clothing could be organized a lot better. Right now I have clothes in different closets all over the house because we don't have enough storage space. For example, my shoes are in the kitchen, winter shoes are in the basement, my dresses are in an armoire in the "junk" room, and my t-shirts, jeans, and sleeping stuff is in the bedroom. Yikes!

Here are some great pictures I found online.
This one looks about the size of our room, so it's probably the most realistic.

Ahh so pretty. I love Victorian style things...
This room is huge! I like the floor to ceiling shoe rack.
Oh just threw this in there for fun. I have a weakness for ceiling medallions.

I hope I can get motivated to do this! I find I'm really slow when it comes to doing anything with the house. I guess it's because I'm so used to renting and it's hard to think past painting the walls...eeep!

Super sad cat

My boyfriend Freddy found this cat on our back balcony two nights ago when it was pouring rain. Usually he gets mad at me when I try to take in strays, but she is really rough shape, so he knew it was the right thing to do. She is definitely the boniest cat I have ever seen- I can feel every single rib on her back. She has all of these weird bumps along her gums, too...uhhh it's so heartbreaking. She is declawed so I know she definitely belonged to someone. I found her with a collar, but when I checked the registration number, it was registered for a Shitzu dog, and the owner never left their name or contact information. :-(

LUCKILY, one of my friends has agreed to foster her, but I have to take her to the vet tomorrow to get the poor cat checked out. I hope that whatever she has isn't life threatening, and I really hope that I didn't risk infecting my cats by bringing her into my house (although we kept her apart from our cats).

She is sooo sweet and affectionate. Luckily she is eating a lot and drinking, so she still has the will to live. My friend Jen named her Super Sad Cat (one time Jen found an abandoned Himalayan cat that we nicknamed Sad Cat). Today Sad Cat is one of the happiest cats I know. My friend Janice adopted her and named her Princess (which she totally is!)

I hope that Super Sad Cat can be a Super Happy Cat one day!

Well...that's what I've been up to besides sewing! Just stressing out about cats....sigh.
