Our Bedroom

It’s been so long since I’ve posted any photos of our house, so I figured today I would share our bedroom. I love looking back at old house photos. We changed up our closet doors recently to some wood ones. I ended up staining them much too lightly, so I finally bought some new stain to try again. Luckily I’m not too worried about going over light stain with dark. We actually have a new bed from the last time I posted photos too. We used to have an Ikea platform bed, but then maybe about a year ago we bought a tall bed that I sometimes feel like I need a step stool to get into. I love it though, the mattress is a memory foam and I don’t think I could ever sleep on anything else now. A bit of the artwork has been moved around. And last time we went through and cleaned out clothing for donating for decided we did not need the white dresser that was in here (which I then gave to my sister). So hello from our bedroom! I figured it’s been some time since I posted my photo online and I recently got a haircut that feels perfect and lighter for the beautiful weather we have been having!

Easter Decorations

Just wanted to share my Easter decorations today. I love the graphics on the vintage cottage cheese cups, and it makes me wish we could still buy festive cottage cheese with cute containers to be re-used. I very recently found the tiny bunny tin and Gurley chic candles at the same thrift shop, the candles were 10¢ each and the tin 25¢. Such a steal! The candles still have their original tags on the bottom and were originally 15¢ each. Another thing I found this year was the bunny shaped candy box in the far left next to the roses. It was at an antique shop so I figured it would probably cost more then I wanted to spend. Turns out it was $1 and the whole booth was 20% off.

A look back at December

December seemed to really fly by this year, and since I did not blog at all during December I thought I’d share a few photos from the month. We made tons of snowflakes and strung them across the dining room with fishing line. There were gingerbread houses, and my son has really gotten into baking this past year so he made tons of cookies and packaged them up for his Christmas gifts. There was some stitching, and a few handmade gifts. I always have grand plans to make so many things, but I usually end up running out of time. We had a low key New Years Eve, stayed home and watched old & new family movies which is what we have done the past few years. My favorite kind of tradition.
