I love to make a house a home. And I'm getting a new project! Never mind that I didn't finish this current one.
I've been reluctant to write the words, "we're moving" because there were so many unknowns. It's official. We are moving back to the Brownsfield. Yes, we did sell the house but in a lease purchase, the buyers can opt out and they did. Let's just say we found the house a lot different than we left it. But I don't want to even talk about it today. Ranting can come later.
Step into my sunroom, the room that was "almost" decorated. It was last on the list at The Borrowed House. Now it will never be completed. The decor is a mix of vintage and modern pieces so I'm posting to my friend Nita's new linky party, Mod Mix Monday.
Good thing I kept my boots by the door. Actually, I've moved them from the front door to the back. I guess that's symbolic too.
The boots even provided the color inspiration for the room.
I recently hit a winning streak with giveaways. Every prize worked out perfectly in this space. But it'll be fun to make them work in new spaces too.
A Cozy Cup of Tea sponsered a giveaway on Burlap and Blue and I won! Kristina makes incredible pillows.
Hard decision but I settled on the silhouette. Don't you love the ticking?
Couldn't resist these darling number tags so I bought them to be included in my package.
Yay me! I won another giveaway from Timeless N Chic over on Type A. This cute blue shelf...
and this spring candle holder made by Courtney. Isn't it so clever?
I'm enjoying putting little treasures on the rustic shelf.
Stacy from Stacy's Shabby Shoppe sent this vintage ballerina cupcake topper in yet another giveaway. She couldn't have known how much I'd love it. Red headed! My heart, my daughter.
In addition to the Scrabble "home" letters, Tracey from Raggy Girl Vintage sent the sweetest wrapped friendship package with all these other goodies below. Love how the ballerina theme serendipitously happened.
I've already told each of them, but thanks again girls! I'm blessed!
In looking back...
I've learned a lot this past year. I fought so hard against being in my current place in the beginning. Seems almost foolish now.
You can only move when the door opens.
Although things have not been easy, good things have happened too. My family has grown in love and understanding. We've made new friends and experienced new things, even were featured in the news and newspaper (our brief moment of stardom.)
I found some great places, like antique stores and flea markets, of course.
This $15 chair cleaned up really well. The matching dreamy sofa will need reupholstering, but it was only $55!
Our family motto-
