You know those few days before company comes over that you frantically run around stashing all the toys in the spare room cleaning your house like mad? The last two weeks around here have looked something like that. Our home is made for living. With a four year old. So if you come over most days, it will look something like what you see here today, but you might also step on an Octonaut or five, or a Barbie on your way in, or find all of the pillows in fort formation in the living room. We’re all about making memories around here and enjoying living–no fuss. Home for us is all about being surrounded by the things we love: photos, Adelie’s (my daughter) artwork, collections of mementos and little treasures that just make us smile–all on a budget. It comes with time, collecting, thrift store and yard sale hunting, and a lot of sweat, ingenuity, and patience from my husband–bless that man. So, grab a cup of coffee and come in. This is my first official home tour ever, so: WELCOME TO MY HOME!
First stop, the entry way, of course. An old printers tray I inherited from my mom holds treasures from vacations and hiking (one of our favorite summer pastimes), some precious art created by my little one, and some simple color pops for summer. Oh, and disco balls. Disco balls make me happy!
I collect sand, postcards and other treasures from vacations, hiking, whatever…so this is like our little corner of memories and one of my favorite places in our house.
