Flea market find!

Flea market find!

Matt and I knew that when we bought a new house there were various items that would need to be upgraded.  Our bedroom furniture is on that list.  We are currently in possession of my childhood furniture set.  However, this set did not come with bedside tables so a few years ago I bought some cheap side tables from Walmart.  We couldn’t have anything too large in our old room at the townhouse.  These fit nicely even though they were…

Patience paid off!

Patience paid off!

For the past year I’ve been drooling over this one specific dining room table that I kept seeing on Pinterest.  Of course, none of the links listed where the actual table was from.  I searched high and low and one day I finally found a blog that stated where the table was from, Restoration Hardware.  I immediately went to their website and found the table I’d been lusting over was the Salvaged Wood Trestle Dining Table.  And then I found…

A tale of two doors

A tale of two doors

Right after Matt and I moved into the new house we had a really bad storm come through and our front door leaked.  You can read about that here.  That was 3 months ago.  Since then I’ve been waiting for my new front door.  While we weren’t happy that the front door leaked, it gave me the opportunity to actually get the front door I wanted.  When we bought the house, I had dreams of removing the grids from the…

Craft room update

Craft room update

Hello, almost vacation! Matt and I are planning a little trip to the beach for a few days.  I feel like I am in desperate need of a vacation.  Our last “real” vacation was two years ago to Jamaica. So, let’s see, what have I been up to.  Well, I am still working on my craft room.  I think it’s going to be a work in progress for a while.  It’s been so freaking hot lately that I haven’t wanted…

The making of a craft room

The making of a craft room

When we picked our new house I knew I was going to make one of the bedrooms into a craft room.  Matt was getting an office and I wanted a craft room.  We had the space so I decided to use the bedroom next to the the master.  It’s the only bedroom not connected to a bathroom and I wasn’t keen on having a bedroom right next to our bedroom/bathroom so this was the perfect space. For months I searched…

It was a doozy!

It was a doozy!

Thursday afternoon I was standing on the screen porch watching the neighbors film House Hunters, when a loud clap of thunder boomed.  Made me jump.  It had started to sprinkle and that probably kept me and a few other neighbors from being a bit more obvious with our stalking. 😉 I finally went inside and the rain started to pick up.  Then the lightning started.  Matt called me to come upstairs to the “viewing room” to see the show.  I…

Kelly Golf – Round 1

Kelly Golf – Round 1

One of the main reasons Matt and I chose the neighborhood we did was because it was a golf course community.  Matt plays golf a good bit and we knew he would play even more if we lived on a golf course.  The only condition was that he had to get me a set of clubs.  I refused to live on a golf course and not have clubs.  For Christmas Matt gave me a set of golf clubs and some golf…

Flea Market Finds

Flea Market Finds

Yesterday Matt played golf, so while he was out, mom and I went shopping.  First we went to a nursery I pass each day on my way to work.  It has a very nice facility so I figured it might be kind of pricey, which is was.  It was still fun to go look around and see what might be good for the yard though.  Then we headed to the Flea Market.  Mom’s been asking to go for a while…

Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

Wow, I didn’t realize it has been quite so long since my last post.  We have been in the new house for almost a month and so far so good!  We are just waiting on the new sofa to come and then I have to persuade Matt to buy a dining room table.  My craft desk is on the way and then I can start working on that room (which I’m really excited about)! Yesterday Matt was sitting on the…

Snow and more snow!

Snow and more snow!

In the past 2 weeks we’ve had like 3-4 days of snow!?!?  This is absolutely crazy for NC.  Normally we’ll get a day of snow here or there but these past few weeks it’s been a lot!  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good snow day but this is starting to get ridiculous.  The city basically shuts down because we aren’t equipped to deal with snow.  Not to mention people already drive like idiots so adding snow is a…
