around the house

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

Are you a Black Friday shopper or avoider?  I typically try to avoid it, but sometimes a great deal will persuade me to venture out into the crowds.  It has to be a really, really good deal, though.  Typically, we put up the Christmas tree and decorate.  I love to get in a workout too. Feels so good to move after a day of eating and being lazy.

Today, I thought I'd collect some photos to give you a glimpse of the house.  It's slowly starting to feel like home.  Space by space, room by room.  Turning a house into a home  takes a long time.  I still don't have any curtains hung.  All of my walls are still white like they were when we moved in.  (Except the kitchen which was lemon yellow and is now painted grey.)

I am sort of enjoying the process this time around.  I'm always moving things around and changing up things, so it's an ever-evolving art for me.  Here's a few snapshots of what some of the house looked like this fall.

This little space is in the entryway.  I fond the orange mirror in the Target clearance section, and the "Welcome" sign at yard sale. :)  Those square photos are Instagram prints that I stuck on with masking tape to make changing them up quick and easy.

This was a table centerpiece for awhile until I got tired of  the obstructed view across the table.  I eventually moved the vases to a shelf in the living room.

Z and I making dinner.  Notice the lovely lemon yellow?  My favorite! (sarcasm implied.)

Repainted kitchen!  Yay for grey!
