Wall Shelfs

I picked up these two shelfs for a buck each at the thrift store awhile back and had issues hanging them, so they have just been sitting around collecting dust. But after my friend came over and helped me re-arrange some things, this wall was empty and the perfext size to fit them! It is the room across from my dining room. I fixed the hanging problem by simply nailing new claw hooks in the back of them and Voila! Instant fix and now they hang much better!

My Dining Room Makeover

My friend and I went crazy the other night and re-arranged with whole house. You can see some of the before pics in earlier blog posts, but we moved the settee in the dining room which I have been wanting to do for some time now and when I saw it again and again in magazines, I finally went ahead and did it! The room in the first picture isn't quite done and I will get more pics in better light (these were taken at night). But the window is where the settee used to be! That room feels so much bigger now! I just love the way it turned out!

New at Dedeetsyshop

Some new items in my etsy shop! If you want, you can check them out at I've got some great gifts for the holidays! :)

Happy Thursday

I LOVE the simple, rustic/industrial look to these rooms! I had a friends come over last night and transformed my dining room and family room! Now I am in full on cleaning mode this morning. I am having a group of friends over tonight and then going to the midnight showing of New Moon! Sooo excited! Yes- I am one of them, not one of the screaming, fainting, giggling girls. But, I did love the series and Twilight, so I am super excited to see New Moon!

Sleeping Beauties

These bedrooms are just dreamy (if you're saying, geesh, that first picture is not a bedroom, I can explain! I just thought the cabinet in there would look great in a bedroom holding pretty sweaters, or extra linens!) I could imagine either of these rooms in my house, they are so lovely! I just am in love with the bed in the first bedroom and that chandelier! Love it! And look at the delicate painting on the last pictures bed frame! Adorable! I just bought a new duvet cover for my bed! I am liking it but feels like other changes need to be made now! Do you ever do one little fixer upper and then it snowballs into other changes?! Oh, my poor husband! He sure puts up with alot from me!

Here are some more of my favorites! I have had a lot of kitchens on my mind lately because I really want to paint our kitchen cabinets white! I have been talking about it for some time now and I just can't seem to find the time to get it done! And the next couple weeks aren't looking good either. I really wanted to have them done by the holidays but that doesn't look like it is going to happen! :( I love the card holders in the second to last picture. I bought some hooks and wire today and I am going to try and rig something up like that for my little guys artwork! Well I am off to the sewing machine again! My Etsy shop orders are taking up a ton of my time lately- but I am NOT complaining!! :)
Have a wonderful rest of the sunday!

More Rooms I LOVE!

I love all of these rooms. And I guess it shows my love of all different styles. I love shabby chic, industrial, cottage, rustic, eclectic...the list goes on and on! All of these rooms have that coziness I like, without being overly cluttered and clausterphobic! (sp)? Aren't those bird cages from the bed just the best?! And that cabinet in the bathroom? Perfect for holding towels and such! I love how the ottoman is fraying and so imperfect- just how I like it! And in that bedroom- look at all those mismatched shutters! How neat is that!? I also love that chair in that room too! The last picture is just lovely! The white painted floors, the white hutch, the little skirts on the chairs- too cute! What is your favorite decorating style? I don't know if I could choose! Mine changes on a monthly basis! :)

Have a wonderful weekend! Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving?

Fall Decor

Wow! With Halloween already past us and Thanksgiving right around the corner, I found some pics that are not spooky and just right for the transition of Halloween and Thanksgiving. How much longer after Halloween do you leave up your decorations? Do you decorate alot for Thanksgiving and how? I have always been a little stumped on how to really decorate for Thanksgiving. I usually just try to incorporate more orange and other warm colors. I still leave pumpkins up too. I think these picture are perfect examples of how to keep some fall decor around through Thanksgiving, even though you may be itching to decorate to Christmas!
