with the continuing TERRIBLE news of our economy...i thought i would keep things on a lighter, happier note and take a little time to celebrate home. i finally got some pictures of the house uploaded to share with you guys! I've had so much fun finding homes for all of our things. And because of how BIG this place is compared to our last house...i've been on the hunt for some new furniture too. Look at my CUTE old white shelves that I found at a thrift shop! $12.50. not kidding! They were $25.00 but they were having a 1/2 off sale. ummm yeah...i'll take it!

the piece hanging above the white shelves is a vintage window (this one is from my grandparent's house!) with some favorite fabric displayed behind it. and take a peek at my funky drapes!! love 'em! haven't got around to properly hemming the bottoms yet...but that is way down on the priorities list;) anyways...we have such a pretty view of our little back yard in this room.

Flowers and Halloween heads in an old sap bucket...

look at our little pot belly fireplace! we haven't figured out how to make it work yet...but it sure is cute:)

Another awesome find at the thrift shop is this way old medicine cabinet. $15.00. really! visit those thrift shops you guys!!!

it has some weird paint on the glass that I have to scrape off...but LOOK AT THE INSIDE!!! all the different level shelves!! imagine all the cute things you could display here!!

i received the MOST happy package in the mail
from a super sweet friend!!

thank you oodles
and oodles and oodles
(have you all shopped at Catherine's
Red Shoes website?? it is a FEAST for
the eyes!!!!)
I adore these treats sooo much and will
especially treasure my house pillow
forever and ever:):)
and ever.

look how cute my new house looks next to my Red Shoes tooth pillow!!
they are very at home with each other on my newly sprayed little
wicker chairs:):):)

in my spare time (hahahahahaha) i made this new painting for our living room. it is sort of an expression of the things I guys...
I used LOTS of crinkled up book pages and paper and layers of paint...

that's me with the paintbrush...
look out world;)

on to the master bathroom...
this is my VERY special birthday
vintage dresser! could you CROAK at
the perfectly chipped up paint and ancient
metal knobs and pulls!!!? and look at the legs!
eeek. love it!
thanks chris for driving all the way back to that
shop and picking this up for me:):):)

I love being able to fit a piece of furniture in
our bathroom! You may think that you
don't have room...but look again!!! We took
down a towel rack to free up this wall.
(we added a hook for towels on a different wall)

some more of my favorite things:)

and I'll leave you with my shipping partner:)
Henry helped me load this TALL stack
of boxes into the car:)
thanks little Hen!!!

have a beautiful weekend you guys!!!

Bonjour Jenn! I think you are the first person who dares talk about the economy ... Scarry ... But we must keep our head up and go for it no matter what ! I L-O-V-E your new house! It is so cheerful and bright and fun and colorful! I A-D-O-R-E the painting you did of yourself and your family! Your Etsy update had all kinds of wonderful Halloween stuff in there but I was too late to snatch one of your witches ... Too bad! Have a great weekend! LuLu
