“A good home must be made, not bought”


I am no where near a designer. I would NEVER claim to be. I took a interior decorating class one time, and didn’t enjoy it. What I do enjoy is making my house warm and cozy. Putting touches that only I can do.  So I thought, I would show you some of my favorite things about my house. Little things that make me smile and make me realize, this is my home.

I adore my bathroom. I think that bathrooms are suppose to be a sanctuary?? But I went with fun instead.  We got this shower curtain at Target. My Momma bought me the hooks to go with it. I love it. It always puts a smile on my face. I accented with polka dots and blue, orange and green. I would show you the rest of the my bathroom…but remember, I worked 32 hours this week and 40 last week?? :)


My amazing living room. For the record, our house is sinking on one side. It’s not our house, so as long as we are safe, I will deal, but in the mean time, all my pictures look constantly crooked! My Daddy ( a carpenter) comes over and straightens them all for me and then does it again before he leaves. I’m glad I’m not OCD about that kind of stuff, otherwise i would go crazy. My Momma bought that mirror at Michaels. I love it!

This is above our couch. That saying i got a craft mall. The picture on the left is our wedding. I should find that and post it! We look cute and young, and it was only 2 years ago. The one on the right is one of our all time favorite pictures. I really love all the pieces that make this wall.


I got this frame on clearance for 60% off. Same with the elephants. Some how, everything just fit together and it was meant to be. Even the crab, cause we like to peench.


My heart rock collection.


There is only one picture of my bedroom. There is nothing fancy in there. We plan on doing an asian theme. But probably not til we move into a house. For now, this where I get ready. I got the mirror at Goodwill and gave my old mirror to Olivia. Those are pictures of my Daddy. They mean the world to me.


I love my kitchen. I spend a lot of time in there. I should of just took a picture of the whole thing, but this was more fun. These watermelons my Momma made. She always had them in her kitchen and I always loved them. She brought them to me when I moved into my own house. I love them so much. They are just a touch of Momma that I need. 



This wall is the backside of the kitchen. I found most of these things at St. Vincent's . Except the star and the bunny on the left, those are Momma touches too. (Thanks Mom!)


Um.. I have crap everywhere.

My apron collection.


This is my craft and scrapbooking space. I hung those shelves all by myself! I wouldn’t trust them in an earthquake.. but whatever! I finally have it organizes enough that I know where everything is. It’s a good feeling. On the left wall there is a bulletin board. It makes me feel like a teenager because I have all different kinds of things on there. Even my own letter from high school. This room is also the laundry room which has shelves full of party/cake decorating/big things.



There is my little tour of my house. I love every single room.

…except Olivia’s. It never stays clean. And she pulls EVERYTHING out of everywhere. Lord, help me!
