Home Body

I mentioned earlier that I've been diverting lots of creativity to decorating my new home. Since the place is still pretty messy, I just took a few shots of corners of the apartment that are worthy of your eyeballs.

07-23 Guess Room fireplace
This is the fireplace of the Guess Room. It's kind of like a guest room except it's filled with all my clothes, crafts, and sewing gear and has no extra bed. The mannequin torso was a gift from a friend who used to work at the Gap.

07-23 Guess Room cacti
This was a hand-me-down table that I spray-painted silver during my silver phase many years ago.

07-23 Bedroom Fireplace
This is the bedroom fireplace. The skull on the mantle is named Hank A. Taff and used to decorate the dashboard of my car.

07-23 Bedroom Lamp
I made this lamp out of another Gap torso given me by a friend. It was the easiest project ever.

Thank you thank you, guys! I felt a little silly putting pictures of my place up but your comments make me so happy.

It's awesome to find ladies who appreciate a good mannequin torso!
