my thoughts::making a house a home

i truely believe no matter where you live you should make it the best place on earth for your family. that has been my motto since our first place we lived in. we managed apartments, we lived in a tiny little hole of an apartment, we had nothing, that by far was a great place to start...as time has gone on i have been able to collect special pieces of furniture through "trash" collecting from college students who left things behind by the dumpster and made it my own, and through going to second hand stores, so i may not have pottery barn everything ( i love thier style!)...but it's lovely just the same in my eyes. i feel like you can take anything and make it just that much better with a little love and paint. that is what i hope to start on this weekend, i feel like i've put off my painting projects for too long, negelected my home, neglected my "nesting"...so wish me luck i hope to get some things done, organizing, painting, and hanging with the kids...

If this is your house I am totally in love with it! I have a bunch of vintage hankies and really like the wall of hankies. :) blessings, marlene

WHOA, lady! I'm so impressed!! We started in total dives of apartments, too and have scavenged, fixed, made or refinished about 80% of what's in our house! However...you totally put me to shame! Your stuff is fabulous!

Well, regardless of whether its your house or not...I have no doubt that you'd be able to successfully copy any of those ideas...so please post more tutorials as you get it all figured out for the rest of us!:)

Even though these photos are not of your house, you have awesome taste! I will be back to check out your blog when I have more time to stay awhile. I wanted to thank you for visiting my nest a couple of weeks ago...I'm still learning how to check comments, etc. on my blog! I didn't mean to be rude. Please forgive me!
