Be still.


I have been holding on to this promise!
I need to frame this in a place where I can see it every day!

Do you decorate for the 4th?

I typically don't decorate for holidays besides Christmas {do you?} 
but I found these cute little patriotic blocks on Etsy
They are something that I could see myself putting out for 
Memorial Day, the 4th, or Labor Day!
I think they'd be great in a clear glass vase on the mantle 
or a big red bowl in the dining room!



Now I just have to convince my husband that 
they are something that we need in our life!

These blocks are from the vintage housewares shop "fishlegs" on Etsy

Social Space Makeover Contest

Social Space Makeover Contest - Making It Lovely

My husband and I just purchased our very first home! 
We are closing next Friday, the 17th. 
The house has lots of potential and I can't wait to get in there,
paint all of the walls and make it our home!
The previous owner used the house as a business so the entire house is covered in berber carpet {good for high traffic areas} which gives it a cold + corporate feel. We would like to pull up the carpet and re-do the hardwoods or lay some laminate. The living room also has some "office shelving" that I would like to tear down. The fireplace needs some serious lovin' and the light fixtures need to be replaced! 
We have furniture that we love, just need help arranging it! We have a huge sectional that I am not sure will fit in the new living space!
I have been wracking my brain over colors for the rooms....I would LOVE inspiration + help!
