The Holidays

Boy, it’s really been awhile since I’ve posted! The holidays came and went and here we are approaching February! I can’t say that many exciting things have happened since Thanksgiving, but I figured I’d share a few pictures from December of our adventures:

Happy Halloween

Halloween is around the corner and I thought I’d pop in with two quick pictures of my home decorated for the holiday. The clutter is starting to drive me crazy, so I’m not sure it’ll survive a day past Halloween (I have far less “Thanksgiving” decor, which gives me a bit of relief from the clutter before I pull out my Christmas stuff). But I did have fun while it was up and I think Finn enjoyed it a bit this year.



I’ve been making changes in this front sitting room, as I sold the old piano and buffet I had in here, as I wanted to try something new for awhile. The old shoe rack that was in my bedroom is now on the left and I’m liking the wood tones with the new gray walls. It’ll probably change again in the near future but it will have till wait until the new year because I think Josh is growing tired of my redecorating. Ha!

Hope you all are having a lovely week. I’m sure I’ll pop back in soon with pictures of Finn dressed up for Halloween. Until then…

home office

I am continuing on with sharing the images I photographed of my home for the Creatively Made Home course last August. I hope I haven’t already posted these, I did a search and couldn’t find the post, so here’s hoping…

I change out what I have in this space most often, as I tire of the clutter and decide to pass on some of the vintage finds in my Etsy shop from time to time. The space has already changed a bit since these were taken, as I sold the large black base cabinets on either side of my desk and added a large armoire to the room. (I’ll have to take some new pictures to share once the clutter is tucked away again).

I love the large botanical chart I purchased on Etsy above my desk. It added a lot of color and femininity to the room, which was lacking from the space before (see old photos here).

I’ve felt the urge to de-clutter and simplify lately, so I’ve been letting go of a lot more of my “treasures”. Craig’s List has been awesome for that. I have a ton of large items that are just to costly to ship, so unfortunately there are some things I just can’t sell to anyone but locals. If you are local to me and interested, I’ve still got several things I’d love to pass on to the right home: The piano in my front room, the HUGE pink botanical print that was once in my front room, a silver Pottery Barn mirror, and an old sewing machine, to name a few. You can email me for pictures and pricing if you are interested. Everything is pick up only.

I’m off to spend some time with Finn on his last two days as a one year old…
