Christmas 2012



Christmas 2013

A large project for me this year was
slip covering our couch and love seat.
A lot of work, but SO worth it!

Christmas 2014

The exciting part of 2014 Christmas decorations
wasn't even noticeable through pictures!
I found lights that actually 'twinkle'...
not flash but twinkle!

Come check it out

New Curtains

I think that this multi-
purpose, 'everybody uses
for everything' room,

is definitely a lot closer to being 
need to plan something for that
big ugly back door!!

Its taken me a long time to
find material that works with the couch
and love seat, and will also
 work when  I slip cover them...

The reason slip covering is needed,
 I just don't have the heart to move him off.

The wall color looks way off
in the picture below.

It does however, have
lots of neutral tones,
with layers or texture.
Cosy for winter.

This fabric was found at Fabricland,
they were having a huge 50% off sale,
so they ended up being under $100!!!
Super Sale that weekend.  
my mom has lent me her serger, wow 
 so much fun!  Finishing these curtains 
was super easy.

Of course, I had to add a
 little sparkle!

This is when we first
moved in...
not very relaxing,

 I felt like we were getting there..
very slowly.

After a lot of painting, rearranging, sewing,
and saving, this room is finally 
what I had in visioned
 as our family space.

Just in time to start decorating

I will show more of the
 living room once I start pulling 
out our Christmas stuff...
its not too early is it?

Its come to my attention that our 
master bedroom really
doesn't look like a "master"
bedroom...sorry husband.

Actually I would just like to say that everyone
of these teddies came from him..<3
I love them!
Pictures are of our three daughters as babies, LOVE
them too! :)

I kinda-sorta 'manned' this room up...
took out some of the ruffles, removed some 
flowers, its perfect, with fall in the air.

I am still searchingfor material for curtains..not sure
if I would like to go white and airy or a warmer 
neutral pattern.

I think that is a fair compromise ... his 
hat on the dresser.  :/
