She shops....and she shops...and she shops some more.  Shopping is the theme of this week's post.  

If you are visiting from Calling It Home, Welcome!  We are over half-way through the Fall 2017 One Room Challenge.  EEEK!  If you are new to my site, I am currently working on transforming my home office into a functional but stylish space.  

After a false start, I quickly changed course and started from scratch.  I created the below mood board for the re-design and am much happier with the overall look.  

As I start to design parts of the house that are more detached from the main living space, I will not be as concerned with being so strict with the flow.  Rooms should always flow, but given that our living, dining and office are technically all back to back, I really wanted the office design to be an extension of our main living room.

If you saw my story on Instagram last weekend, we unexpectedly lost one of our pet finches (Penny) on Friday night.  I was pretty much useless all weekend although I did have a spurt of energy late on Sunday afternoon and whipped out a rolling tray table/cart (Sometimes I really impress myself :) )

Candidly, I didn't do much for my office and the One Room Challenge.  Wait, does shopping count? OK! Then I accomplished A LOT!

Seriously, what did we do before online shopping?

Ready to see my virtual shopping haul?

I loved the matte black finish and the Mid Century design of this piece.

Sadly the shopping did not end there!  Also purchased was another piece of downloadable/printable art, lamps, hardware for the doors(DIY to follow) and fabric swatches for the chairs.  

I will also have a couple of DIYs to share with you that I am currently working on for the space.  Hopefully next week I can make some more progress!

Be sure to head over to Calling It Home to check on the progress of  my fellow guest participants.  Thank you to Linda and Media Host, House Beautiful, for sponsoring this event.
