In My Little Home




Charlie sits at his perch watching closely for any moving thing and dreaming of freedom. It's not that he doesn't love being our little boy, it's just that he can't help his Jack Russell instinct. On a good day Charlie will get out of the yard at least once. Digging through concrete, eating through wire, or pulling down our 14' + hedge branch by branch. Once freedom is his he spends his time getting to know his neighbors. We have almost lived in our house a year and I wouldn't be surprised if everyone in a 6 block radius knows Charlie by name. 





Fireplace Mantel has changed again. This time a bit more simple. A dear friend of mine gave me 7 white miniature pumpkins. It was a very special gift- he said they were for luck!
Also this beautiful heart came to me from Elizabeth from creative breathing. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful friends from blog land.  Elizabeth has been a dear friend through my ups and downs of the last few weeks. I feel truly honored to have one of her lovely pieces of 
he-art. Thank You Elizabeth!




Found this really cute lamp the other day. The fabric seems so familiar to me... could it have been my curtain material in my first bedroom. I'm going to have to ask mom about this one.
I love this little corner of my house. Right of the front door, it holds all my fondest memories of our wedding day. Sadly I can't show the whole little cupboard because Miller ate the rest of it! Very Bad Dog! 


I moved my studio again! This time I moved my computer and all my toys and craft supplies down to the basement. I grew up in a basement so in a lot of ways it feels so homey to me. I love all the space- endless it seems :)



Found this little dress at Goodwill the other day. 
It makes me smile... and when times get tuff and I start to get depressed I look up at that little dress and remind myself of what is to come!

Your house is very sweet... I love the front door and the fireplace! And then all of your decorating! I think you will make a great mommy some day too. Maybe you should do freelance window-dressing or work for photographers setting up photo shoots! You have a natural ability to design a space! You reminded me of my own childhood-- we were always playing in our basement too! Rollerskating in the winter, painting, putting on plays... my dad even put up a swing one year!
