Love how the colors are combined in this room.


and this!

I would love to do a similar style of tile around my fireplace. I am in love with those colors but I will probably stick to something more neutral.

Packing Up

This is what my kitchen is starting to look like:

I've started packing things up this week. It's going to be a long process, I haven't even made a dent! The goal this weekend is to seal one of the coal rooms in the basement and start bringing boxes over. 2 weeks to go!

Seaside Summer Style

I love the nautical and vintage touches in these photos. And I'm in love with that aqua blue!

Quote of the Day--Fred Brooks

"How does a project get to be a year behind schedule? One day at a time."

This sums up how I've been feeling lately. We only have 4 weeks until we have to move in and there is still a lot to do! Per our original schedule, contractors should be out by now..but the only thing finished is our tuckpointing. We still have not found a replacement for the electrician that bailed on us and each project has gone up considerably in cost. The house is an overwhelming mess right now but I just have to keep hope that everything will work out JUST FINE!

Wish me luck ;)

Saturday Shots

My mom and I went saling on Saturday and found some great stuff. I found a lounger for my patio and a light fixture for my bathroom. I purchased a few sets of vintage table linens for $1 a piece and other knick knacks I couldn't resist. Here's a sneak peek, all for $2.75! In the background you can see what my walls look like after stripping the wallpaper. Those walls will be my project for the next 2 weeks!

Here's a shot of my magnolia tree, it's starting to bloom!

And a picture of one of the flowers in my circle garden...can't think of the name...

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend as much as I did :)

Our First Home

Josh and I just purchased our first home. It's a 1925 bungalow on 1/2 an acre with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and in need of a lot of TLC. Here's a sneak peek of the before photos. Above is the front of the house.

Here is a view from the back yard. It has a huge brick patio with it's fair share of weeds.

We completed the demolition stage and filled up a dumpster in no time. This week we have HVAC, plumbers, and tuckpointers coming in to help us out. There's plenty of work to do while we are stuck outside.
