WAY too many pictures for anyone's good:)

I have a LOT of pictures to share today.....let's start out with some amazing finds from sally ann!
Don't you love these??

I think they are PERFECT!! And the bonus is, they are actually good books, like tennyson, shakespeare I may even read them, and not JUST use them for decor!! ha ha...I have some pretty awesome ideas on what to do with them...

Funny story about those books....little A told me that they were "ugly"...I tried explaining to him that they were in fact just old, and that sometimes old things were really nice, and I liked them, even though they were old. This was his response: "You like it even though it's old? hmmm....kind of like grandpa right? He's really old, and he's still nice...we like him. But he's pretty much the only old thing I like" HA HA!! His grandpa is young too, which makes it even funnier:)

This grandpa also is an avid painter and has been helping us out a lot in that area. Up next.....these are our house "before's" we have been painting it all week long!

I guess those weren't quite the before' you can see some mudding and sanding had already been the "in-between's" I guess. 

And here are the after's so far....warning: no decor yet, so they do look a little dull...and I have a horrible camera, the colors are awesome in real life!

Sorry that the lighting is SO horrible...I guess you'll just have to come over and see it! ha ha...I plan on having it all up and decorated in the next couple of weeks, so I can plan a HUGE halloween shin-dig at our new and improved house:) Wait for more pics on all of the awesome decor that I'm putting up soon!


  1. Looks great! I think you need new window treatments though, those blinds look a little sad with all the new snazziness!

  2. Wouldn't that be nice...I wish, ha ha...maybe'd be sweet to get those thicker more durable ones...or the ones that go right inside your window.
