A Little Recap of 2013!

I haven't spent much time on my computer this past week but that's because I've been busy working away on another room in our house. First, I got all of our Christmas decorations put away (except for the paperwhites and a couple of wreaths) and then I got to work priming and painting the trim in our other extra bedroom and started on the walls. I am hoping to finish up the walls today and then I can start decorating. I am really excited about the bedding from Ballard Design that is going in that room! And I am on the hunt for a couple of things to add in there but hopefully will have lots of pictures to share soon. And then I am starting on our master bedroom. And our new light fixture for our entryway arrived late yesterday afternoon so I am hoping to get it out of the box and maybe even hung this afternoon. So, it may be a few more days but I should have lots to share with you soon! In the meantime I thought it would do a little obligatory year end wrap up for 2013. I chose a few of my favorite posts/projects from this past year:


First up, last January we had Jamie's Baby Shower -You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here:

  5. I am always amazed at how much you accomplish. I fell in love with your brown nursery and decided to try to do something similar. I did get a good paint color and actually got the room painted. It all went downhill from there. I accidentally ordered an Ecru chenille spread instead of white. When I moved my white bookcases into the room, they had actually had a wash of some kind applied and they just look dingy. I searched for months for a chest of drawers, found one for an excellent price, painted it white...painted and painted and painted. Geez, I just don't have the expertise!
