Sitting Area

This room had me baffled. Even before we made an offer, I was brainstorming ideas of what we could do with this room.
It is suppose to be a "Formal Living Room", but alas we have one set of furniture, and I was not about to stick it in the front entry. I always wanted to have a pseudo library and I have been looking for an excuse to make a wall full of crates. This was my chance! We were still living in Utah and getting ready for the move to Florida, but I was to eager to wait! I started buying slats of wood and cutting them to dimension and bundling them in "sets". So I would have a lot of the work done before we even got there... (Stay tuned) Same thing with the few furniture pieces that are now in the entry. I started looking on Utah craigslist for two chairs. I got lucky and found these two little guys. They were perfect for what I needed and with a little love and care they would be just what I needed. They fit perfectly with a round table that I have had for a little while, and has been apart of several different rooms. I repainted the round table to a slate blue, which was originally black.
Just before the move I was in Idaho visiting Collette. We decided to get away and go check out some thrift stores. It was then that I came across the missing piece! I by chance found and old vintage typewriter, in working condition! Collette twisted my arm and for $15.00, this 20lb piece of loveliness was moving cross-country with us!

Laundry Room Makeover

I am so bad about posting, I get started on a project and I don't stop till it is finished. Then I immediately start another. Never giving myself a time to write a post. Since our move (yes we moved to Florida), I have been busy as ever. I have so many ideas swimming around in my head for our new home. Just s last week I lost my phone and so many pictures that I had taken for me "before/after" photos. So I chose to work on the laundry room this week, I had not even started it, so I could take a before picture. I love before/after photos.

This is way over due, but I feel this is something that would be considered a " better late than never topic".
I am a proud Aunt of a beautiful niece. Lydia Grace, joined our family on Feb. 10th. I was lucky enough to be able to be only are few minutes away from all the excitement.
Megan and Rob were actually giving Andrew and I a little time without the children. We had just finished dinner and were considering going to a movie. I sent a quick text to see if they would be ok if we were gone for a little longer, of course they were more than fine to give us more time. Within 2 minutes we got a call, "change of plans". Little Lydia was going to be born, and soon! We rushed home, and they rushed to the hospital. Little Lydia Grace, was born later that night. I love that they were so close, I was able to go down and see Lydia when she was just a few hours old. ( I actually was pulled over at 1 a.m. for speeding I was so excited to be there. Luckily I was only given a warning.)
Over the last weeks it has been so fun to see and hear all about our new Lydie Bug. I love hearing all about how she is changing and growing, and LOVE the happiness she brings to Megan and Rob. No one is more deserving than them. They are such great parents already. I love my Little Miss Lydia.
