Time for our Family Christmas Vacation!


How AWESOME is that clock?? It say's they got it from a Junk Shop. Can you imagine? That is NOT Junk!! (at least to me anyway :) ) I guess it's true what they say, "One mans junk is another mans treasure."

Anyway, It's time to take off to California, Bright and Early! Till next time.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas!!

I love this room

I love everything, from the hanging light fixtures, to the huge comfy looking sectional, to the great storage for toys. Just looks inviting and lived in. Love it!

The Mudroom and Holiday Decor

The Mudroom is finally finished. Woo. Hoo!!  Just in time for the snow. I am still working on accessorizing the top shelf. But I do love the hooks. The little ones we ended up buying cheap ones at Home Depot and sprayed them black. Since I just couldn't find that one black hook in a somewhat decent price range. But I do love my DIY ones. :)

Still in LOVE with this window that lets all the natural light in. (don't mind the blue tape. we are painted Jim's office right now on the other side.) We painted the walls Heavy Goose by MS. I couldn't be more happy with this turn out. It is a lovely shade of Gray!


It's finally starting to look a lot like Christmas at our house. I love this time of year that we celebrate Christ's Birth.  Here are a few decorations. :)

This is my new Side Table I picked up at Cost Plus. I love it. It is a perfect spot for the large nothing wall in the kitchen.

Next Project:
We have already started working on Jim's Home Office. Jim designed it and it is looking amazing. Pics will be coming soon! So be excited!

Mudroom Progress and a Sneak Peak!

Here is the BEFORE of the office. The brown door leads out to our garage and around the corner, are steps that lead to the kitchen. We actually have 2 stair ways to go up or down. (It's awesome) So we thought it was a perfect spot for a Mudroom!

First step. Dry wall and a Door. (It was Jim's idea to put in the window above the door so we don't loose all that natural light from our big window. Best Idea Ever)

Step 2. Staining the Concrete BLACK. Which I love but as you can see probably shouldn't of been the next step. ;) Oh well you live and learn, Right?!

Step 3. Building


I am in LOVE with my NEW MUDROOM. Jim (My, Oh So Talented Hubby) did such an amazing job. He is for Hire by the way. ;)

AND I also love the way my new Anthropologie hooks look with the stripes. Perfect match don't ya think?
BUT, We are not quite finished yet we have a LOT more painting and we still need to find the PERFECT Black Hook for the rest of it. I will be needing 10 hooks. So perfect I mean, price as well. :)It really is harder than you think, or maybe I'm just picky. Regardless it's on the to do list.
