Here’s an update on where we’re at with our backyard makeover. Come see what we’ve gotten done over the last 14 months.
It’s porch-sitting season, so I thought I’d take you guys on a tour of our front porch today. This is how our porch looks now, but that’s not how it’s always looked. Let me show you how it’s evolved over the years.
After several weeks of rain, the sun finally decided to make an appearance. Determined to make the most of it, I grabbed my camera and snapped pictures of another part of our house. Come see my oldest daughter’s room.
Next stop on the home tour: our upstairs bathroom. It’s a beautiful, functional space now, but it wasn’t always that way, and getting it to this point took far more work than we ever bargained for. Come take a look.
Today, I want to show you my stockpile. It’s hands down the hardest-working square footage in our house, and a big part of how we save money. It includes plenty of food, like you’d expect, but it also includes some things that will probably surprise you. Come take a look.
Yesterday my 12-year-old daughter conned me into helping her clean her room. I was offered breakfast in bed, plus a batch of peanut butter brownies upon completion. Smart kid. Five and a half l-o-n-g hours later her room was finally back on track and I had my brownies.
Since kid rooms never stay clean for long, I figured this would be a good time to give you guys a tour of her room. Come take a peek.
Someone was vacuuming upstairs while I was working this morning. I didn’t give it much thought, until I took a break and discovered that the upstairs hallway had been cleaned. Miracles do happen! This has been a clutter hot-spot lately, so I figured I’d better grab my camera and give you guys a tour while it’s nice and neat. Up for a quick peek at our staircase and upstairs hallway? Follow me.
Phew! It’s shaping up to be a busy summer. Today I helped cleaned out my husband’s uncle’s basement, but before I headed over to do that, I snapped some pictures of our master bedroom to share with you guys. Ready for the next edition of our home tour? Let’s do it!
I’ve gotten lots of compliments on my holiday wreath, and you know where I got it? A curb pile. Yep, it was someone else’s cast off. Pretty lucky find, since it fits in perfectly with the red, brown and gold color scheme that I chose this year.
If you love vintage and curb finds as much as I do, you’re going to love the rest of my Christmas decorations. Come take a quick tour of my house.
Three weeks ago, I decided to get serious about doing a home tour for you guys, and then it rained FOR. THREE. WEEKS. STRAIGHT. The sun finally decided to show itself this morning, so I quickly grabbed my camera and got to work. Interested in a tour of my living room? Follow me.
I’ve worked out of the same 100-square foot home office for the past 12 years, and while my location hasn’t changed, life sure has. Instead of running one website out of that office (thebalance.com), I now run two websites and an Etsy shop out of that space, and I share it with my husband. He quit his job two and half years ago to come work with me.
That’s a lot to cram into one tiny room, and it’s made organization a challenge.
But we make it work.
