It started with curtains

It started with curtains

Before we moved into the new house, we knew we would need new bedroom furniture.  Matt didn’t want to buy anything while we were still in the townhouse, since we had no clue what our new bedroom space would look like.  We ended up getting my old bedroom set from my mom and have had that for a few years now.  It was a decent size in the townhouse but we figured it would be too small once we moved….

We have a bed!

We have a bed!

Thursday night Matt and I ran to Costco to pick up our new mattress.  We knew we wanted to have everything so Friday afternoon we could get the party started. Friday afternoon we moved our current bed to the spare room.  The plan had been to sleep in there over the weekend but more on that a little later.  Anyway we got everything cleaned up and ready for the new bed.  We bought a great bed from Overstock which I…

What the heck is it?

What the heck is it?

And while a hard taco bassinet seems like a reasonable answer, I’m not sure that’s actually what it’s for. 😉 I found this in my grandmothers house several years ago and am completely baffled as to what it is or what it’s for. My initial thought is that is is some sort of flower basket but I honestly don’t know. Anyone have any ideas? ~k

A new project

A new project

Woo hoo! Thanks to my lovely friend Sarah, I was perusing Craigslist tonight and came across a sweet little find. An antique and it’s only $10.00. I am pretty excited about this little gem. A little work, some paint and new fabric and this will be a great addition to the house. Enough teasing already. I’ll post pics after I pick it up. 🙂 ~ k

A Place to Lay My Head

A Place to Lay My Head

For weeks now I have been scouring the internet looking for an affordable bed.  I’ve found a couple here and there that I liked but the ones I really liked weren’t platform beds and getting a box springs was out of the question.    Yesterday I ran across one Matt had nixed a few months ago.  As I was rereading the comments I noticed one that said this bed was almost identical to the Colette bed.  I had just looked…

I love to bake!

I love to bake!

I know I’ve said this before but I really do! I found a recipe for crusty bread on pinterest last week. Matt and I love bread but he really loves crusty bread. We’re talking 3 ingredients, about 2 minute prep time, and 12 – 18 hours of waiting. The most time consuming part is waiting for my pan to heat up in the oven. Yesterday we ran to Costco and Matt saw a package of yeast while we were there….
