i can't even believe it, but we have pictures on the wall,
curtains on the windows,
books on the shelves...
this may sound silly to some of you, but my last five homes or so haven't had all of these things. before we moved here i decided i wanted to make this house a home.
i wanted curtains on the windows, dang it!!!
and two weeks after moving in, we have these things. i couldn't be more grateful to my fabulous mama for all of the help she's given us the past two weeks. thank you doesn't even begin to cover it.
the upstairs is more or less done as well. :) i will photograph and share that portion of the house later this week, as well as our office/scrap room (which is downstairs, but NOT done at this point!).
look at what i saw this morning before jimmy left for work. how sweet is this? nothing better than a daddy that is HOME. we are so grateful to see him each morning and to see his smiling face walk in the door at night. so grateful.
that bottom photo is my favorite. HA!
okay. on to the house photos! sorry if you are tired of seeing house stuff, but i'm just really excited that we got this done!
i won't be sharing a photo of the dining room, b/c we unpacked my china/milkglass/cake pedestals yesterday and the table looks like an estate sale. heee! i'll share that later, along with the scrap room.

so there you have it! i want to note that all of this is mostly things i've found over the years at flea markets, supplemented with affordable pieces from target, home goods, and even walmart.
i love pottery barn, restoration hardware, etc...but it's not feasible for us to have a home completely furnished from those stores. as much as i'd LOVE that!! so i try to mimic the look of these stores using items that are more affordable.
this afternoon i hope to get the milk glass, etc. into the red china cabinet.
i can't believe i'm 35 weeks pregnant this week. where does the time GO???
i hope you are all having a beautiful, blessed monday. i'll be back soon!!
