Updating My Living Space

I have had the same living space design for more years than I care to admit. My biggest reason was–why change what is just fine? My living room was full of furniture that was functional, well-kept, and pleasing but something happened inside me at the beginning of this year. I don’t know if it was the fact that I now spend so much time at home because of the shift that the pandemic brought or if something inside of me is just ready for a change. Either way, it has been my mission to update the space.

I have been working on it casually since January. Starting first with a new couch, a new rearrangement of furniture and now it is morphing into older furniture pieces leaving and new ones coming in. So below are 5 new features I have been looking at while I update my living space decor.

To the Moon and Back

So I am kind of excited that we get to start this new year off with a rare occurrence . . . the Super Blue Blood Moon. It is pretty incredible that we are able to witness some of these things and that we know when they will happen.

If anyone doesn’t know what I am talking about here are some links to help acquaint you with the event that happened on January 31st. Thank you Newsweek for the quick account of the event and NASA for the live stream of the event.

While I was not able to see the event myself because of our cloud cover, I did add pictures I took of the first full moon. (You can see we have a cloud cover problem) 🙂

To honor this awesome event; here are 5 things to keep the theme of the moon alive.

  1. Decorate your space with some awesome moon inspired artwork. I love this vendor on Etsy. 
  2. I have actually seen these lamps around town and I really like them. 
  3. Aren’t these cookies so clever! Enjoy them from Cadry’s Kitchen. 
  4. I love this necklace and it’s tribute to the moon and stars by Mignon and Mignon. 
  5. Just in case you need to be reminded about how great it is to be an astronaut and attempt a landing on the moon–watch Apollo 13 again.
