My friend Courtney did this awesome post about my ‘closet’. Not only was I super honored that she deemed me worthy of blogging about but I love the pictures that she took and her whole presentation of it! Go look at the post and her whole blog while you are at it. She is an awesomely talented lady, she is passionate about life and super creative and fun. Thanks Courtney!
I don’t have the best pictures but these give you an idea of the differences. The room wasn’t horrible it was just in need of some TLC. We patched and painted a lot, pulled up carpet, sanded, stained and polyeurathaned the floor. Then we filled it with a variety of items from thifting, flea markets, travels, gifts etc.
We were living in our little house, we were working at our jobs, we had been married a mere four months and on a whim I suggested we look at this house that was for sale. I had driven past it for many years and always thought it a nice house. Less than a month later it was ours and the real work began. We hadn’t looked at other houses but this one was meant for us in so many ways and we have worked quite hard to make it our home. There are times we wish for the carefree days of being renters but we also love to see the changes that have come about because of our work and ideas.
Fall in our first little house was so lovely because there were so many plants and trees around the house. The smells and sounds of a cool autumn were splendid. So when you feel happy you gather your friends around and have a dinner party and that is what we did. My dear husband made a tenderloin along with amazing sides all preceded by equally amazing appetizers. It was a perfect breezy evening so we set up everything on the back porch and hung up candles. I got to use a lot of the new dishes that we had been given as wedding gifts!
