A PEAK AT OUR NEW HOME

1// new bedding and our bird 2// our living room shelving and my favorite deer 
3// $3 yard sale chair/favorite corner 4// working on a project for our bedroom walls
 5// our new (really old) kitchen hutch 6// vintage food ads on our kitchen walls
  7// spice jar project 8// hearts and aprons 
9// tapes and trims 10// freshly painted chalkboard drawers 
11// pocket knives in my workroom 12// workroom shelf

Things are finally finding their place, and it's starting to feel a little like home in here. While it's taken longer than I'd like to admit to put things away and get settled, we've really been enjoying taking it easy and taking our time to set everything up. Douglas's schedule is going to get insane soon enough, so we need to relax while we can. I'm working on doing a little more rearranging and decorating. And I can't wait to share full room pictures soon. For now a few detail shots will have to do.

Working on little projects here and there has helped keep me sane. I've always wanted matching spice jars, so I was really excited to finish these. It's been one of my favorite projects here yet. I've also wanted to display vintage food ads in our kitchen since we got married. I've been collecting them for years, and I love finally having them up. And I can definitely say that my new obsession is our floating wall shelves. I've spent so much time rearranging them already (while I had several other more pressing tasks to attend to).

I'm happy to finally be posting again...and I'm hoping to get back into my schedule next week when Douglas starts work. I have lots of share about our life here so far and things that are happening. Happy weekend!

  8. um. I may have to copy your spice jar idea. I hate having so many different sized & shaped spice jars in my cupboard, what a mess. it drives me INSANE. also, futura is my favorite font, so I'm swooning over that aspect, too. I've been neglecting the blogging world lately, sadly. I've missed you & your posts! :) haha

  11. Two words to describe your home: exquisite and organized! =) I think the white walls also add to your home’s brightness. I just love it! Well, isn’t it true that a home reflects the personality of its owner?

  13. Your house can serve as an inspiration to others in itself that you really don’t need for you to provide your house with lavish designs and items. For as long as you know how to keep it clean and well-organized, you’ll be able to have a beautiful house.
