More Pics of The New House

Here is a tour of the basement:
Soon to be 4th bedroom, minus that wall that protrudes into the space.
You would never believe that someone would block a window with a wall, but they did.  We will be opening that up.
The bar/nook is being removed in order to open up the room on the other side.

Next post will be of the upstairs..

We bought a house!!!!

Guess what I have been up to?  Packing!!  Not that packing is fun but moving into a house after renting for over a year is.  I am so excited.  This house has great bones but could definitely use a face lift.

Here is a tour of the main floor:

Living Room
Dining Room 
Eat In Area of Kitchen
Family Room (and one of first projects when we move in)
Half Bath Don't you love the yellow toilet!! JK
Awesome back porch

Simple Valentine's Centerpiece

                          I love this centerpiece.  And the kids love eating it!! 

I just used a glass hurricane a white candle and some hard heart candies as filler. Oh yeah and I wrapped a cute ribbon  around the hurricane.                     
                          I am hoping this lasts till Valentine's Day!!

Sooo Simple Valentine's Picture Art

I love when things are simple.  It is so satisfying to sit down and make decor that takes only a few minutes, and still looks great.  I have been busy this week making and decorating my home for Valentine's Day.  I will be sharing what I have done next week.  

In the meantime here are some great ideas that can be made with things you probably have lying around the house already:

                                                       looks harder than it is go check it out here

        this one comes with a free download here

                    This one does seem a little time consuming, but still an easy project without a lot of supplies here

Even though this was a Christmas project it would make an adorable valentine's frame here

This is one I will be making for sure.  Check it out here

Just some left over scrapbook paper and the clear marbles that can be purchased from the Dollar Tree!!

And some heart specimen art.  So sweet!  here
