Hello fellow de-clutterers, downsizers, and simple living mamas...
I entered our apartment in the Apartment Therapy's Smallest Coolest Apartment contest and it posted today. Come check it out and then vote, vote, vote! I need to get the vote count up to "Stellar!" I know you have to register to vote...and then confirm in your email account...so it may take a few more seconds than normal, but I would LOVE you for it. (not that I don't just love y'all already! )

Click HERE.

Tell your friends!

I got in a vote, Sara. Good luck! You're place looks so homey. The beauty of it is that it's aesthetically pleasing yet it looks like a real home, not a model.

I voted and looked at all the other entries. Yours is the most real. Some of those apartments look like no one lives in them!

I know! Very spendy. If I have the amazing luck/blessing of winning something, at least I wouldn't have to clutter my apt. with it all...because I could probably buy one thing! hee hee.

I gave you a stellar...yours is really the only place that looks like a home. The others look very staged.

Good luck!

Mine was from www.hometownevolution.com ...although I didn't really like their quality of paper. Try to find the highest quality of paper...a lot of specialty gift shops are carrying them now. Or places like Urban Outfitters, Pottery Barn Teen, and the like.

Thanks for the votes everyone!!

: I really hope you make it to the next level! You deserve it. After looking at those other places I would honestly be shocked if you didn't move on. IMHO yours was the most comfy and homey. I could really see myself living there (unlike that all white apartment : ).

Hey Sara, you promised that if we voted that you would blog more often . I'm checking your blog daily. Hope you move on to the next level of voting.

I love your use of bright colors-love it. I'm definitely not a modernist when it comes to decorating-I love flowers,pretty linens, stuff like that. Anyway take care .
