Our House: strating to decorate!

We are finally starting to decorate the house and give it some personality! Mike and I are definitely an eclectic pair, the house is starting to reflect that and I love it! 
The neon sofa and chair are from Mike's parents house and are so fun and happy, but I hope soon to swop them out for something a little more neutral. But for now, I'm loving all the color!!

Our House: getting there!

Its been a while since the last house post and a lot has happened! We officially moved into the house last Tuesday! It's crazy to think we flipped a house in less then 2 months, but we made it happen with help from both our families, we are so thankful! 

(1) our vintage chandelier rewired for over the kitchen island- which still needs its chopping block top
(2) last thing to be painted- the hallway & staircase... these yellows were NOT it!
(3) the view off the back porch in the morning 
(4) the 3rd largest Tulip tree in the state sits between my neighbors and our homes, it is a glorious
 gorgeous tree, I cant wait to see it in the spring!
(5) tuck pointing the foundation- a little fun :)

Around here: up to some things

On top of moving I have been up to a few new things! (1) helping my yogi the lovely Anne Adametz with styling for her website and re-branding! (2) working on an ultra fun project for our 2014 Holiday line (3) an Instagram shot from my walk to the post office today (4) a large wholesale ring order on the way to San Francisco.
I am going to try and get some "Our Home" photos up on the blog this week as well. We are sleeping in the new house finally! :D

around here | moving days

Happy Sunday!

 It's the calm before the moving storm.. for the next three days my hubby and I are finally moving into our house!! It's crazy to think that just over a month ago we took possession and basically redid every room in the house. Wow. 
I can't wait to be all moved in and hunker down just in time for winter. :)

our house | the bathroom

The bathroom was the last thing on the list, and of course the last thing to get allocated money for the redo (it should have been the first thing). The bathroom of my dreams is going to have to wait until we can save up to do it right, 6 months, fingers crossed!
Bur for now it gets a minor face lift:

- tub surround
- vanity (dresser I found at a yard sale for $40, reusing the old sink)
- sink faucet
- shower head
- fresh coat of paint
- sub floor & sheet lenolium :/ (we can make it work)
- lighting
- toilet 
- mirror 

Thank you to help of my handy step dad and grandpa the labor on this project is not going to break the bank either! The majority or the dirty work was split between two teams! Round one, my mom and I, round two my hubby's brother and his power tools + the home depot shopping expertise of my mother in law! :D
