**Home And Random Ramblings**

Hi everyone, I hope your all enjoying your week!
I'm slowly getting my house in order and it's starting to finally feel more like home. There are still a few things that I need, like a desk for me and my computer, right now it's on the floor and I'm breaking my back bending over while typing! I definitely need to paint the living room and my boys room too, this place  needs some warming up around here! 
I've also been thinking about what to giveaway for my 1 year blog anniversary, any suggestions? I completely at a loss!
Also, in the next few days, look for my interview with Laurie Anna, from Laurie Anna's Vintage Home. He decorating skills are amazing!!
Here are some more photos from around the house, enjoy!

An area in my living room.

Some of my vintage frozen Charlotte dolls. I use to think these were kind of creepy but they've started to grow on me!

A spot in my bedroom.

Just know that I'm trying my best to get around and visit you all, please forgive me if I have been a bad blogger, but know how much I appreciate you taking the time to visit me, and when you leave me wonderful comments, it truly makes my day!
If you have any suggestions on how I can make my blog better please let me know, I need all the help I can get!
I've also decided to join up with Cindy at  My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. Make sure and check out the other wonderful participants at Cindy's place!!
Have a great night!


  1. Oh this just looks so fabulous and chippy! I love it!

  2. Melinda ~ It looks lovely, just like I knew it would! We've lived in this home for 5 years now and at first I thought I needed to decorate it the way the house was designed... that was not a fit for us and so over time I have tried to make it more US. That meant instead of listening to the house I had to really infuse our personalities, I think it looks like you have already done that, I can just see YOU in these photos, beautiful! Theresa xoxo
