Day 200 – Lady In The Streets, Freak In The…Well, You Know.

So last week sometime, I saw a pic in my Flickr contacts with a girl on a really awesome looking bed. Naturally I ran to Plurk asking where the pretty bed was from and one of my buddies pointed me over to LAQ Decor. I hadn’t been over there since their houses were first released, so I wasn’t aware that they were making furniture. I have to admit, I wasn’t exactly into the houses back then, so I kind of just wrote off the store. But man, the furniture?? AMAZING. Seriously seriously pretty stuff.

I didn’t buy the bed after seeing it on marketplace because another bed landed in my lap and, quite frankly, I have a LOT of beds already. I’m a sucker for furniture, what can I say?

Earlier today I was browsing marketplace and came across a toilet from LAQ Decor. Well, I may have a lot of beds, but I don’t have a lot of bathroom stuff. I’m not really happy unless I can see home stuff in front of me, so when Aldwyn got online tonight, we went off to check the store out.

While we were there, I fell in love with a coffee table that was part of a sofa set. It was just so cute and JUST what I wanted AND it was only 2 land impact!! The problem was that they didn’t sell the coffee table by itself! Now I understand that the big money is in people buying the whole set of stuff, but I just really really wanted the one piece.

Aldwyn is pretty used to my indecisiveness [and my spontaneous decorating] so he sat around with me while I played with the poses on the floor model of the sofa, and played with the colors on the bed. But then I guess he was tired of sitting because he bought me both the sofa set and the bed [which also came with nightstands & lamps!] to 1, make me happy, and 2, get me out of the store. Of course, we WERE having a good laugh over a guy that was there who claimed to be an “advanced builder” and also a collector of fine furniture [gonna guess he also has many leather-bound books, and his apartment smells of rich mahogany] who was walking around with a flexi ponytail and guns strapped to his thighs, so maybe he just wanted to make me happy. And happy I was as we came back home so I could put out my new pretties.

The coffee table is actually just a smidge smaller in our living room than I thought it would be. I’m a terrible judge of size and think most things are bigger than they actually are. [*snickers* Shut up.] But, it’s mod so I was able to make it bigger. Then, even though I was just working on the bedroom the other day, I picked up our bed and nightstands and put out the new ones. The bedroom is definitely not finished yet, but I really like how it’s coming along so far.

The house is definitely coming together, slowly but surely. Eventually I’ve got to get back outside and work on the landscaping, but one thing at a time. For now, it’s time to get into our gorgeous new bed and go to sleep!
