Wishful Thinking

I just got in to my apartment today here in Uptown Minneapolis and am so looking forward to getting all my things here so I can set it up. Unfortunately, my stuff is being held captive at an unknown location in Sacramento and my moving company won't return my calls. Luckily, I have the one (and only) key item in my closet - this bad boy down jacket!

To console myself while I wait to hear news of my furniture, I'm planning to do some wallpaper therapy. This little cubby here in the entry way is just crying out for some pattern. I'm thinking this or this. So hard to decide.

In the meantime, at least I have nice big window to enjoy the sunset while I wish for the phone to ring. Oh, and I have laundry in my unit. It is amazing. Not since I left home for college in 1993 have I experienced the kind of joy that not having to leave my apartment to clean my clothes can bring!

Patagonia (on sale at REI). I've been digging how warm it is keeping me!

Personally I would go for the Fairy wallpaper. So pretty. Good luck with that and your furniture!
