Decorative Changes

We’ve made some changes to our decorations this summer. Fireplace The first thing I did was redecorate the fireplace. I liked the picture that was on the mantel (and you’ll see I did move it somewhere else) but it had been there for at least 5 years and I was looking to decorate the fireplace…

Our House Over the Years

We’ve lived in our house for almost eight years. It sounds like a long time considering we’re only in our early-mid 30s but it’s gone by fast. When we first bought our house as first-time home owners in 2011, we knew we were buying a fixer-upper. The first time we unlocked the door to OUR…

My Starter Story

My husband and I recently looked at pictures we took when we were house hunting during the summer of 2011.  The first house we looked at was located on an acre of land just outside of a small city.  Three things I absolutely loved about the house: it had a huge bay window in the…

Empty Frame Wall Decor

I’ve been looking for something to hang above an antique couch for a few months.  I wanted to get something other than a picture.  Maybe a large clock or a shelf of some kind, but I couldn’t find anything I liked that was in my price range. Then, a coworker left this picture behind when…

Our Home Then and Now

We moved in to our place about three years ago and we’ve worked hard to make our house a home.  Shown below are now and then pictures.  The “before” pictures were taken a week or two after we moved in and the “after” pictures were taken today. I hope you like what we’ve done!
