I am so happy to say that our new home is all done and we've moved in! It is such a great feeling, and even though there were times when I questioned my sanity in moving twice, now that it's over I can honestly say I am so glad we did it this way. I love our new house, since I have been living here … [Read more...]

    I have already showed some pictures of our mini stair makeover but I thought I'd circle back and talk a little bit more about the process of removing the carpet runner on our stairs. Not only was this fairly  simple to do but the stairs look so much better now. I can't get … [Read more...]

It was $95 at my favorite thrift shop here in Southern Pines, and as soon as I saw it I knew I would have to find a place for it! Of course, when you bring one piece in, … [Read more...]

  I am squeezing in just a few more images with some fall decor so I can show off our gallery wall and the new console table in our hallway.

First off, I have seen this idea and can't remember where so I don't want to pass this off as exclusively my idea. Thanks to Pinterest there really aren't original ideas anymore, right?
