My Love Language

My love language is Acts of Service...






If you've never heard about the 5 love languages you can learn more about them here.


I read this book probably 10 years ago and learned so much, not only about myself, but also about the relationships around me.
I strongly recommend it if you haven't read it...








Anyway, this post isn't about promoting the book it's about sharing the news.


The news that...
I'm about to burst with excitement.


Why?

Pretty in Pink Dresser


Every once in a while I come across a piece of furniture that I love.  A piece that only lasts a couple of days in my garage because I'm so excited to get my hands on it.

This is one of those pieces.  I just love all of the lines and details this little dresser has.  She was in really bad shape though and it wasn't easy transforming her.

10 Things You May Not Know About Me

I consider myself an open book so these aren't earth shattering but I thought it would be fun to share!





















1.    I almost NEVER pay full price for anything!  I am a HUGE bargain shopper.  I LOVE Craigslist and most of the furniture in my home was purchased second hand or was given to me. 




Well, that isn't TRUE about every piece of furniture in my home....
I had a garage sale and sold a sectional and some other furniture and paid cash for the couches in my family room a few years ago.  I did pay full price for them and bought them brand new but I shopped around for months before purchasing them.

Farmhouse Buffet

I love getting my hands on buffets.  They can be used for so many things.  You can use it to place your TV on, you can us it for its intended purpose which is in the dining room or you can use it in almost any room in your house.

There was nothing cosmetically wrong with this buffet except for the fact that it was dated and tired.
It sat in my garage for quite a while.  I just couldn't find the inspiration needed for it.

The Evolution of the Fireplace

It's raining here in my neck of the woods and it's supposed to continue to do so for a while.  It gives me the decorating blues!  I need some sunshine!!  So what are we going to do? Head to SoCal!!













The boys are already in Arizona for baseball where it's in the 80's!!  Dreamy!


On Monday I shared on the blog how the space between my kitchen and family room has changed in the last few years.  If you missed it, you can read all about it here.


I've really enjoyed looking back at the ways the different spaces in my home have evolved in the last four years.  There is still so much work to do but sometimes it's good to take a step back and look at the progress we've made so far.  Today we're going to look at the evolution of my fireplace in the family room.

Rome wasn't built in a day

If I were to give you my best design advice it would be, Rome wasn't built in a day!
So many people think that their house has to be perfect right now!  It doesn't!  It takes time not only to figure out your style but to implement it also. 









I love a home that has a story to tell.  The living room has Nana's hutch where all of the blankets are stored.  The kitchen is filled with all of the beautiful white ironstone that you've collected over time.  The guest bedroom has your favorite quilt draped over the bed that your best friend made you....
