Okay, so last week I posted the pic I bought at our neighborhood yard sale. The plan, paint over the original canvas (pray it wasn’t priceless) and update the frame. I really had no clue how long something like this might take. Honestly, I kind of thought it might take me a while. Saturday morning… Read More Paint me a picture!
A week or so ago I decided I wanted curtains for the master bedroom. I’ve known for a while I wanted curtains in our room but I’ve just been kind of at a loss as to what color I should do. Our walls are painted a soft grey and our bedding is a teal-y green… Read More A Tale of Two Curtains
The other day I was at Carolina pottery when I stumbled across this adorable vase. It was pink, had flowers, and well, it was cheap! I was surprised when I saw the price tag read $7.99. Score! For that price I knew I couldn’t not get it. As I looked closer I noticed one of… Read More Hello my pretty!
of a new bed. Hehe! For a while now I’ve wanted new bedroom furniture but after paying for carpet I don’t think buying a full set is in the cards.

Only it’s not. Over the weekend Matt and I FINALLY painted our bedroom! WOOO HOOO! This was the last “room” that needed to be painted before new carpet.

There is nothing sweeter then a baby sleeping in your arms making little baby coos. Saturday the in-laws drove up to… Read More Let there be light!
I think so, now. Matt and I have invited his parents and another couple to our house for Thanksgiving this year. After the couple accepted I went into freak out mode because I only had 4 matching placemats. I made Matt run to Crate and Barrel during lunch a few weeks ago in search of… Read More Dinner for 6?
My new obsession with Pinterest has fueled my desire to decorate the house. For the past few days I’ve been trying to decide how to decorate the table for Thanksgiving. We will be hosting Matt’s parents and maybe another couple. This means I want to do something great for our Thanksgiving table. I ran to… Read More Thanksgiving table
For some weird reason, lately I am really digging owls. Hence the new blog header. 🙂 Today I was browsing Etsy and I found some cute owl prints. They are printed on old dictionary paper. I think I’m in love. I have no idea where I would put them but they are just so cute.… Read More I like owls
Today at lunch I went to one of my fave lunch time spots, yep Carolina Pottery. I actually only set out to buy my big vase, you may remember this post, and to get an NC State blanket for the new car. I decided I had put off my new vase long enough and Matt… Read More I’ve been shopping
