It seems it's been a million years since I've been in blogland. Work is really quite busy and I'm still in the process of slowly, slowly getting my house in order. Figuring out the basic things like where the hell to put the furniture has been harder than I thought, especially since I'd been thinking for months about the the knickknacks I would put on shelves rather than, say, the fact that I need way more extension chords.
But! To give my room the cozy country feel I've been looking for, I snapped up these incredible tins for just $20 at the Brooklyn Flea. And they actually each contain sugar, flour, coffee (pre-ground) and tea (in bags because I have too many kinds of loose leaf tea).
