Just a peek:

Remember what it looked like when we bought the house?

This is technically the breakfast nook off the kitchen (with laundry behind the closet doors).
the not pictured side of the room has 3 full length windows. I love this little room.

I originally planned to put in a small banquet and breakfast table,
but I realized we'd benefit more by giving Livy a dedicated play area.

I think I'll probably spend more time cooking since she has a special area right off the kitchen.

A matter of perspective

I'm having the hardest time arranging furniture and hanging pictures in this new house. I think when you are so used to something being a certain way, it is hard to reimagine it. Case in point: the framed pictures that were in my striped hallway. I was so bummed when we moved in and I realized that I didn't have a great spot to hang all six of them together.

It took a few weeks but I figured it out and I like it even more...

funny how that works!

Those little doors lead from the den to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
I love that I can close off the entertaining area from the bedrooms 
(especially when a little someone is sleeping).

The hall is broken up by five doors, but I finally managed to find a way to hang all the pictures.

As you walk into the hall...

... and turn left towards the master and nursery.

 I'm determined to find two more frames that are similar enough to blend with the others.
I plan to hang them on the empty side of the hallway.

Remember what it looked like before?

Starting to feel like home!

Find of the week

At Walmart! Who knew?! A friend was sporting the cutest workout tank the other day and let me in on the secret that it was from Walmart. I would have never guessed. I detest that place. But, I was curious and needed a few other "walmart items" so I ventured out the other evening.

Low and behold: 
The cutest little door mat. 

I'd bought the some lovely, woven, gray mats that I fell in love with, but unfortunately none of our doors would open over them. My mom and I found some cute ones in Savannah and I left them in her car!!! Bummer. I'll get them from her next time I see her, but I really needed something in the meantime. It had to be ultra thin (and cheap, but not too cheap looking) because, let's be real, they get trashed pretty quickly.


Oh, and those tanks are pretty cute, too.

Are you as shocked as I am?
