Hi! Here goes my first post. I’m stumbling through WordPress but I’m going to give it my best shot.
I’m just your ordinary housewife in the ordinary Midwest. I am not a designer by trade, but I sure love pretty houses. I love color, but I’m scared of it. I don’t trust my own judgment. Turquoise, blues and greens are my favorite colors, so you’ll see them dominate. I don’t have a decorating style. I guess you could say that I have a ‘what I like looking at’ style.
We just bought this house last year. The previous owner left everything builder grade – so dreary. But I loved the layout, and knew it had a lot of potential. I’ve been moving from room to room trying to put a little of my character in each of them so it would feel like our home. But I still have a long way to go to get it where I want it.
I’ve had no time for fall decorating. I’ll be lucky to get these rooms where I want them to be. I’m hoping that by blogging, I’ll stick to the task. After a few projects I sort of drift away and get side tracked. I think that by knowing I have to prepare a post, I’ll stick to it. Hopefully!
I just bought this table/tray. I thought that a demilune table would be a good fit for the end of the love seat. But while out browsing the stores, I saw this cutie and fell in love. I think because it’s so unique. I don’t know if it goes with the living room, but I like it.
I also enjoy gardening, crafts, organizing… all that chick stuff. So I’ll be blogging about those, too. Come join me on my journey.
