  Our family is just finishing up our second year of renting a quaint 1400sf cottage that's about a hundred years old, and while we have loved the location, it's taught me quite a bit about decorating smaller spaces and how to make a rental house feel like home.

  Yay for spring--we had convertible weather at least twice this past week (60s and 70s) and our fruit trees are blooming!  Of course, that got me in the mood for spring, and I finally pulled the trigger on two updates in our dining room.

Last week, I helped a friend with an estate sale she was running in our local area.  What an eye-opener, by the way!  I've been to plenty of estate sales in the past, but really had no idea how much work goes into sorting, cleaning, staging, and pricing items. All that being, said, I still had a … [Read more...]

If you visited my home tour a few weeks ago (see it here), then you saw a few shots of my kitchen.  It's definitely compact, which makes it hard to photograph, but it's been nicely updated with new cabinets and granite countertops.
