Decorating the Temporary Place

T for Temporary

I know I won't be in this apartment for more than a year and that it is useless to decorate it
and even money wasting.
All of that is true, but I can't just be here sitting around,
waiting for the time that I can pack my trinkets and head to back Virginia. 
So I  have adopted this new idea of using this opportunity to create beautiful spaces. 

If I was to buy a new house and decorate it.  I would go out there and buy all the things
I need to do the job. I would pick what I wanted, because it would be sort of a  "need"
to go shopping and find things to fit good at my new home.

I'm not in a new house and I'm fully aware that I will only be here for a couple of  months.
And as much as I would like to go out there and spend the money that I don't have I will not do it.
I will work with what I have and I'll get stuff from yard sales and thrift stores.

So far I've been having fun with this idea.
And I'm very happy with what I have been able to come up with.
I never thought I was ever going to find something to match with the bed cover and shams that a friend gave me. I thing they go together perfectly!

  4. Temporary is a state of mind. I like that you are making it "home" for the time you are there.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog.
    Looking forward to more from you.

  5. Love those shams! Together with the picture frames it's all just perfect.
    Temporary is just a transition time and transitions are so important.
