Apartment Therapy & Goody Blog


As you know I’ve been a little bored with my apartment recently. I’ve made a few changes, progress is coming slowly. Anyway, I’ve been featured in Apartment Therapy as one of the contestants for the Fall Color Contest!!!  I couldn’t be more pleased, since yesterday (the last day to enter) I kept getting error messages when I was trying to upload and submit my entry.

My entry is in the regional best 40 bracket. Contest voting will be on the 20th and if I get enough votes, I can move on to the final 20. I probably won’t make it into the top 20, because I’m up against some serious competition, but I’m excited to be blurbed about in ATSF.

**Update! I also just found out that Penelope was featured in the Goody Blog’s “Cute Kid Thursday”. I submitted info and picture last week, didn’t think it would happen so soon, but hey, Penelope is just adorable.

      I want to vote for your cute apartment! Is it open to voting? I got on the website but the “post your submission” button didn’t work.

      Ohhh by the way, you can have the pineapple in your house if you don’t live in a temperate climate. It should face a South window so that it can get direct sunlight. As long as the temperate doesn’t get to freezing, you can keep it outside.

      Congrats on both! Love your mix of throw pillows on the couch, especially what I think is a fashionable Boppy.

      Thank you! It is a boppy. . . a friend gave it to me when she moved, but it had a horrendous velvet cover on it, so I refashioned a new one. I honestly don’t know why a manufacturer would cover a boppy in velvet, because it’s going to get covered in baby puke. Crusty velvet is just wrong.

    4. Hi Melissa,

      I’m wondering if you do/would sell prints of the art from your BFA final show. I posted my question to AT also. You mention on the blog that the printing is expensive–I’m sorry, as a non-artist, I don’t have any idea how much that costs. Would you sell one?
