digging my new digs

when i left canada, i decided i wanted to bring only the stuff that would fit in my little wee car. the rest i got rid of, or pawned off onto unsuspecting friends. the result was that when i got here, i had to buy pretty much everything i needed to have a decent room. i spent under $500 (the bed i’m borrowing. thanks, angie!) at Ikea, Target and some thrift stores and this is what i got!
