Home is where the heart is...

Michael and I were busy just after Christmas doing some buying! We have been working on redecorating our home with new furniture. In the 6 1/2 years we have been married we have never bought a single piece of new furniture until now. I have enjoyed the process of picking out pieces of furniture that I actually want rather than what we have simply been given (which I was also grateful for)! Michael has been extremely helpful and patient. He gave his imput at times but basically left all of the decisions up to me. We by no means are done and have not even begun with painting the house but we are certainly off to a nice start. Enjoy the pics!

My parents gave me this picture... it hangs just inside the front door!

*It'll cost nothing to dream and everything not to*

Our Living Room

The view of the fireplace...this mirror almost did not make it in one piece! :)

We love this is so comfy!

My mom helped me find this piece...unique, it is.

Our Kitchen

Love this table and chairs...looked forever for the perfect table!

This is Michael's dresser from when he was a child. It works wonderful in our kitchen as a buffett...thanks mom who helped me paint it, of course!

I love the new painting and the dresser looks great in that color. Looks like things are shaping up.

Love the table and chairs!! They look really good in the nook - it is hard finding something that size that is of good quality - but you did it. I love the dresser idea, we still have not found the final piece for the dining room.... I may have to copy your idea! BTW who climbed on the ladder to hang your unique piece??
