a tour of the hizzy

ok, ok. i've been talking about decorating my house and getting unpacked for weeks now.
well i'm happy to say that we've finally got the house put together...for the most part.
and as i've been talking about it, i've been promising pictures.
today is the day to deliver on my promise!

meet the front door.
this little suitcase table we made for chris's bedside table earlier this year.
however, this seemed to be the perfect place for it, so it has moved.
the "thomas" picture is something chris made for me for our anniversary last year.
it's a compilation of some of my favorite photos that i've taken with my photography business.

last week i got a little crafty and made this little wreath. i absolutely love it!

and here we have the living room, well one corner of it at least.

this lovely window on the mantle was one of my super fabulous finds at antique alley back in october.

it's missing one of the window panes...which i love. i filled the opening with snowflake garland that i made. i had bought some snow flakes made out of book pages and then i added a few strands of lace. it looks real cute in person...it's hard to see in the picture.

and here friends, is the white tree that i have embraced.
i super love it! so much fun!

how do you like our frame wall? 
i want to keep adding to it and i want to make it a wall of t's. so it will be an ever evolving work of art!

let's move on to the kitchen.
i may have gone overboard on refrigerator photos....but i can't help it.

i love this picture of me and my momma.
i have it by the stove so she can "help" me while i cook.
she and i always hung out in the kitchen, so it only seemed appropriate for her picture to be there too.

the dining room.
i super love this table.
i love it even more now that we bought some chairs to go with it!

and here we have the master bedroom. 
slowly but surely, it's coming together.

i'm probably most excited about the guest bedroom.
remember that $20 antique bed i got at antique alley?
well it's finally put together!

this room is all about color.
and red.
and teal.

oh, and also great deals! 
ok, so the bed frame was $20. 
the mattress and boxspring were free from a relative.
the comforter....found in the "as is" section of ikea for $14. only because it was returned without the package. no stains or tears.

i also made the teal fabric garland over the top. 

and how perfect is the red table with teal accessories?
happiness i tell you. happiness.
