This Old House

First, I noticed that some have you have come over from other blogs and I am so happy that you did. I would have to say that is probably my favorite part of blogging. I feel like I am getting to know people that otherwise I would have never met but, I guess that is the whole point. Anyway, I am happy that you stopped by and I look forward to getting to know you!

Next, the reason for my post. I am not sure what has come over me but, I have this over whelming urge to redo my entire house. I am talking the bathrooms, the window treatments (if you could call what I have window treatments), bedrooms, the WHOLE house! I have no idea where this is coming from or what on earth I am going to do about it. I would like to say that I will go room by room and start but, I doubt this happens. I am not too creative nor am I very gifted in the whole making the house cute area. Then there is the whole budget issue. I can't really go out and buy all that I would like to in order to change things up. I am hoping that if I can clean out and de-clutter maybe I will feel better and be able to settle on a few minor adjustments. We will see. Any suggestions anyone can give would be very appreciated. I know that there are lots of you out there that have a real gift in this area :)

I hope that you all have a wonderful day tomorrow. The weekend is almost here and it will be "Thankful Thursday" or "I heart Thursday". Whichever you play or whatever you call it, I hope you will take just a minute to remind yourself of all you have to be thankful for.


  1. I am awful at decorating too! I see what other people can do to their homes and it just makes me jealous. I would love it if every room in my house could look like a Pottery Barn picture, but who has the money for that.

  2. OK first Anna is NOT awful at decorating!!!! And second you need to check out these three blogs:
    This blog:
    has something she calls mistreatments and she makes most all of her window treatments.... they look amazing and they always surprise me at how little she did to make them.
    I have a few more that I have found but these are my favorites! Good Luck!

  3. Girl im feeling ya! Me and Kelly talked for an hour yesterday about how we're ready to re-do our whole house...well, besides my kitchen since I did just do that. Just take it one room at a time...and I'll be more than happy to help!

  4. You can do it! Do like you said one room at a time and bargain, clearance and goodwill shop!
