I have just recently finished decorating our new little abode. It's pretty small (or "quaint" rather?), but works for just myself, my hubby and our two mutts. Wanna take a look?
The best thing about our house is everything we own tells a little story. From random shells across the sea, to furniture picked up off the side of the road.
This strange (yet lovely) print was given to me by my best friend whose husband (Dan Grillet), is a photographer. Isn't it odd/awesome?
I just love my Ikea magnetic knife rack. $14.99 soo well spent.
I love mixing old items with new. These green vintage vases were actually found thrown out on the side of the road by my thrifty husband!
You gotta love the terrible 80's family photos.
For some reason, the rest of my family didn't get the 'Look as if you are about to get eaten' memo. Or maybe I'm just a tad bit over the top? Ok. Dramatic (if you must).
Here's one of my new prints ( with my beloved West Elm print..look how nice they play). Check back regularly for a giveaway!
A close up of one of the vintage green vase (a.k.a the out-of-the-trash find). It cleaned up so nicely!
Ahh..relaxing bedroom. It's hard to go in this room if you aren't really ready for bed. It's very calming. We picked a cool, natural palette of rich colors of navy, chocolates, whites and a touch of green for fun :)
This is the now infamous crazy clown print
pawned off given to us by my sweet mother-in-law. Josh's father picked him up at a thrift store one day and brought him home, much to her demise. This poor little guy sat upstairs in the floor (faced to the wall) for years due to the fact that my mother-in-law thought he was creepiest thing she had ever seen!
Needless to say, he ended up at our house and is fitting in pretty well around here. I love Mr. Creepy Clown and he's happy that he has a home now.
And last but not least, our most favorite spot..our awesome porch!
P.S. Emma couldn't stand it and had to make her photo debut. She smiles so pretty don't ya think?
I hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse into our humble little abode!
