Around My Home {Bathroom, Living Room, This & That}

August 14, 2014

Hi friends!!
I'm back from a much needed vacation with the family!!
We spent almost a week in the great outdoors of Lake George, NY!
As most of you know I'm a country girl at heart and I love being in the mist of the woods among the trees and lakes.... It was a wonderful time, but now it's time to get back to our normal routines, back to work and almost time for our little girl to start 1st grade!!
Today I'm sharing a peak around our house. I've been busy with my day job and being a mommy so a lot of the summer projects I have on my "to do" list I haven't even begun to tackle, but I have made some much needed updates to our bathroom and living room as well as an amazing Craig's List find for the dining room.... Let's take a peak!!
 












 

One thing I have learned and took me a long time to understand is that decorating a home evolves over time and one thing you may have fallen in love with six months ago your not loving so much today.... For instance, the must have corner cabinet I purchased from Craig's List has now been replaced with the exact pine cabinet I have longed for.... Rather than just waiting for what I really wanted I made an impulse purchase because at that moment I didn't want to wait and I figured I would never find what I had my heart set on.... So out went the corner cabinet (thank the Lord for Craig's List) and in with what I truly had my heart set on, of which I scored a deal on because the seller was moving and it had to go!!
I hope you liked this little tour around my home!
I will be back tomorrow with another favorite home to share with you!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

  10. Lisa, I love the great rustic touches in your bathroom, the horse towel ring is perfect! I've learned the same from CL, too, sometimes the steals are so tempting I jump on them too quickly! Is the armoire what you found for the dining room? And, your coffee print...my sentiments exactly. :)

It should be coming soon, just waiting on my rug and window treatments!! And I'm with ya, not sure what I would do without my morning coffee!!! Have a great Labor Day and thanks again for stopping by!!

    1. Hi Linda! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Craig's List can be very tricky when it comes to impulse purchases! I always worry that it will be the only thing I find and that it will disappear in a day or two! But I've learned (the hard way) that the perfect piece will come along, it just takes time and patience!! Thanks again for your kind words!! Have a fabulous weekend!!
