It’s halfway through January now and I’ve turned my attention to what I’d like to accomplish in my home this year.  I’m not a resolution type person or one to make out a huge list.  This year instead of putting too much pressure on myself (as I’ve always done in the past) I’m “freshening up” just one room at a time. I like the term “freshen up” instead of makeover, as it implies much less work! hehe  The best part is I’m going to use as much as I possibly can of what I already have!  I’m a flea market, yard sale, thrift store lovin’ girl!

This is set to be a lot of fun for me and I’d love you to join in or follow along!  I’ve started in my bedroom and will be posting some SCARY before pics tomorrow!  If you’d like to read about more home goals, The Nester is having a Home Goal Link Party.  There is so much inspiration there it should be illegal I tell ya!  Click the wise owl below and he will take you to the party!


I’m in my mid 40’s, mom to one grown daughter, Katelyn, and a grandson, Dawson. He is the light of my life!! I am with the man of my dreams and he spoils me, as well as helping along with the furniture when I need help moving things in and out. My other hobbies include photography, scrap booking, reading and of course, decorating my home! My days find me in the office, painting furniture, decorating my home and when I’m lucky, shopping!
I hope you’ll follow along with me on this journey called home.
