ch-ch-ch-changes {pt. 1}

As with many things I have a love/hate thing going with our house. I mean, we weren't supposed to be living here again, right? But here we are...God had different plans. And it's a good house.

There's no more living in-the-meantime, so I've undertaken some projects. A couple changes on the first floor have helped with a more settled, organized, make-it-my-own-again vibe.

The love-hate balance is tipping slightly back to the love side.

a thrifted dresser to organize hide our school stuff, subsequently skeeving my bed-bug phobic husband 
{I found it with this paint on it...perfect color, just enough shabbiness}

the $2 globe was spotted by my MIL at a garage sale - she has thrifty eyes
{can bedbugs stowaway in a globe? see the world and all, right?}

earlier this spring I made the roman shades...and curtains and a table runner ~ went a little crazy with *burlap love*

I realize our corner smacks of a swimming shrine with the ribbons and trophies {merely for participation on the team.} They were stored in the kids' rooms, but whenever we have visitors they race up to retrieve them and show them off. They'll soon be put back.

And I am now noticing that I will have to find some more significant shelving if I am to homeschool two kiddos in this house {beginning in about 4 weeks...eeeek}...another surprise plan. Really, I thought we'd be in a different house by now with a different floor plan. But it's all good.

I'll share another little change that makes me happy...soon.

Another bed bug person......your friend from HS has the same phobia.
Now it's black widow spiders......but because she found one.
I like the chest. Wish we had all the good sales that you see on all the blogs.
Miss you.
