Our New Home

It has been awhile since I have posted. It is good to be back! We have moved into our new house and it feels good to be on this side and settling in. I still have some boxes to unpack, but it is feeling more like home. With lots of help from family, I have managed to get the living room, kitchen, and laundry room painted. I am hoping to get the baby's room painted before he is born. Only 1 1/2 weeks until his due date.... I am excited to meet him. I thought I might be in labor last night, so I got up at 1:45 a.m. and took a shower and got the bags ready. I guess it was one of those irrational "middle of the night" moments. Does anyone else have those? I finally went back to sleep and I am still pregnant this morning.

I took a few pics of some of the fall decorating I have done in the house. I hope you enjoy! This "fallish" weather puts me in the mood for pumpkins, baking, and decorating!

This is our living room.
This mantle is very deep, so it holds so much stuff!

The front porch.

I needed a little end table beside this chair, but did not want to buy one, so I used my grandmother's picnic basket for the bottom and I already had the red one. I love how it turned out. I put magazines etc. in the top basket. It's great storage and keeps the clutter out of site.

How fun that you got a new house. I love the opportunity to move and look at things in a new light-just hate packing and unpacking!
I love your sense of style-you rock and I would love to copy!
I love the chair that you had on the wall for a side table in your own house-oh my heck-what a fantastic idea!
