A Sneak Peak

My house is in shambles, total disarray. Every day we try and get something more done. This has been just like an actual move. There are a few things that we have put together and stuff that I am loving. Here is a sneak peak of a few of my favorites

This is a tile that my coworker made. She gave it to me as a Christmas present and it's the first thing you see when you walk in the door.
This isn't a very good picture but it shows the stand the tile is sitting on.
Here is a picture that I blew up to 12 x 18 of one of my favorite castles in Germany. I also have another picture of castle ruins that should be here by Saturday and a picture of a very old door that was across the courtyard from Reese's house in Germany. I'm going to hang them all together and will post a pic of them when they are all up.

This wall is an idea I got from another blog I visit. It's large magnetic boards from Ikea for photos. When the wall is complete we will have six boards up and I bought a huge sign to go over them that says "Home is Where Your Story Begins"

This is a collage that's going up in our bedroom. I'm in love with it. I think it turned out amazing!

Here is a sign that hangs above our bed.

Our bed...I love it!

There ya go. A few of my new favorite things. Once the house is actually finished, I'll take better photos.

  1. I love the tile! Did she just paint the words on there or stencil them? That is a great idea!

  2. Hey Heather! Thanks so much for stopping by our blog (PJs Til Noon) sorry I'm too lazy to switch my ID right now...You and Reese were our total inspirtation to start a thanks! We felt like our hero had stopped by. Fabulous!

    And love the Ikea boards w/ the phrase..can't wait to see that!

  3. Ok, this may begin to feel like a love fest, or stalking, but I'm going ahead with it.
    I, also, love the wall words and the whole idea of the display.
    Pam beat me to the thanks, but a lotta gratitude is better than a little. So...thanks for all the great comments.

  4. I'm feeling the love on this blog! You guys are awesome.

    Mel - I just went and asked her and she said they are stickers. Can you believe that? It really is awesome. She says she will show me how to make them sometime. I wonder if you could find instructions online.


  5. I love them all and the sign over your bed is AWESOME!!!

    Too bad it wasn't a bright blue sky behind the castle, huh?! THAT would be amazing... though, in my memory it was a sunny day. Maybe just partly sunny? Anyway, very cool.
