It's been a while....

So I haven't posted forever it seems.  I am still trying to get pictures to load properly with my posts.   Anyhow, I am so ready for some warm weather it's not even funny;)  I have so many projects to do that require being outside.  My hope is to get some major projects done that I have had on my to-do list for a while.  Until then, here are some things on my "want" list:

This Nest pillow is from Pottery Barn.  I am still trying to figure out a way to make it because it is perfect for my living room but I have a hard time paying the price.  I love the definition it gives and I have been incorperating the whole bird theme into the living room and dining room.  The next picture is also from Pottery Barn.  (OK OK I am crazy for pillows and PB, its a bad combination for me)  These would look perfect in my Family Room because of the black and cream gingham pillow and curtains I have.  I love the numbers and I am not quite sure why...

Next, I need rugs!  the problem is, rugs are not cheap!  However, surprisingly enough, I found some from Ballard designs that are actually resonable.  I think the light colored one would look best in the Living room and I like the simple pattern to it.  Also, these rugs are indoor/outdoor which is what makes them more affordable and since I am putting one in the front entry, living room, and dining room, I feel like they will work better than a wool.
So, that's all for now cause the list goes on and on!

More rate my space....

So I have been busy getting my rooms done and taking pictures of them to throw on RMS.  As I go I will start sharing some of the great deals I have come across on my shopping adventures as well as any crafts I have done.  I first wanted to share my AWESOME deal I got on the headboard in my daughter's room.  I have been looking for something that I could paint or change somehow  from goodwill and then on Sunday, 30 min. before they opened I happened to see it from the road!  I quickly pulled in and caught someone working there to ask how much it was... $8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you believe that?!?!?!  And I didn't even have to break open a new can of Spray-paint!!!!! (you will soon learn that I look at spray-paint the same way most men look at Duct Tape:)  Anyhow, I was super excited to say the least!

FINALLY on Rate my Space!

So I have wanted to put my rooms on Rate My Space for over 2 years but just when I started to love my house and was ready to take pictures of every room, we remodeled my grandma's house and moved into it!  I wish now I would have taken pictures because it shows how much my own personality has changed and how  my likes have changed.... As a result, I am going to start posting pictures of my house occasionally whenever I change something or am able to buy new  stuff:)  Comments are always welcome, I like constructive critisism!  We have only lived here for 10 months so I have a long way to got to fill every room the way I would like.

Here is my daughter's bedroom I recently completed after switching her crib for a big girl bed.  Thanks for looking and check out my rate my space to rate me please! (MemeAmour)

What am I doing??

OK, so I have considered starting a blog for a while but my concern is that I am not interesting:) My husband has always wanted me to find a hobby that does not cost money (i.e. shopping) so I thought maybe blogging could be my hobby even if no one ever reads any of this! And why not blog about shopping and decorating (which decor is what I shop for). I don't know, we will see!
