I have been making a house a home….
I just moved into my new home and amidst water leaking, sparks flying from electrical outlets, washing my dishes in the bathtub, and cleaning my house while wearing a headlamp because my power has gone out I am making this house my home. I think there was a mild amount of revolt from the house and it had to spew its guts before it settled and accepted me-it still has some mild freak outs and, just today, I moped up water that had escaped from some unknown place. Little by little I think we are beginning to understand each other and little by little I think this place is all right.
In the past couple of years I have developed a solid love for home decor. I have always had a bit of a fascination and my favorite aisle in every store is the house wares. I love wandering and looking at blenders and coffee makers and all sorts of shinny stuff that I don’t really need but oh, I want. This love then shifted to the blogospher. I can search and explore peoples house, like a voyeur, and I begun to realize my dorm room style crap everywhere house, inspired by my mother, wasn’t anywhere near as fab as the stuff on the internet. So I slowly, very slowly, learned little by little how to keep a home. Then I got uprooted and had to pack everything for the next two years in two bags and live in a small room where rugs are tacked to the wall and used as decoration.
But now, all that is changed and I have my very own place.
I perhaps give to much thought to my dream home but I don’t really want to talk too much about this home here, lets explore things that are cuter.
one of my all time favorite homes is owned by Amy Sedaris
I also love this home of trish grantham
She has a beautiful antique globe in her house. After thinking long and hard of what I want to collect; I thought about snow globes, cute little animals, vintage sewing patterns, sailboats, beanie babies, plates with presidents faces on them…then I realized the world is where it’s at.
This is Sharilyn Wright she is so cute and her blog lovely design is well, lovely.
So, I think I have to end this before I get too excited with a song that is so fitting…
