lookin' better.

I thought I would post a few random house pictures. We are still no where near being finished, but we're slowly getting there. We've spent more time on the yard than we have inside the house. Our house is built on a big field, so getting rid of the giant weeds has been quite a task. On top of that, I know nothing about gardening, but I've been trying to make our flower bed look a little better.


The front of the house. My parents brought us some plants from their house: ground cover, monkey grass and a few lilies (which are originally from my grandmother's cool is that?). I'll post pics when those start to grow in a little.

Our entry way. I love our huge front porch. One of the many items on our "wish list" is some nice furniture to fill the space and maybe some spiral topiaries for in front of the windows (which still need window coverings, by the way). I also want to replace that light fixture with an over-sized hanging lantern from PB.

The guest bedroom. I'm usually not a fan of such bright colors, but I loved these Vera Wang pillows from Khol's.

Master Bedroom. I'm still waiting on the Laura Paisley bedding from Crate and Barrel. But, this will do for now.

Love the ceiling detail.

Here is the other side of our room. We've yet to hang a mirror over the dresser. And, holy wall space...I don't know what to put on vast emptiness that is our walls. But, like I's a start.

Looks good, you have great taste. It takes a little while for EVERYTHING to come together, but it will in time.
