Settling In

Last weekend I shared pictures of our finished house with you. Here are a few more pictures of the rooms with furniture. It's still very much a work-in-progress, but we're really pleased with the progress we've made so far. We're looking forward to adding more furniture and decor items over the years. There are some empty rooms now, but we know that slowly it will all come together, and it will feel more and more like home!

Our favorite and most-used room. Somehow, even with 2 extra bedrooms, a den, and a study, wee find ourselves hanging in the family room. 

I've used this wall in the breakfast nook to showcase vintage recipes. The frames are called Kingston from Pier One. 

Some of are favorite recipes from our grandmothers and great grandmothers. Others I found on Etsy as a filler until I can fill the wall with genuine, family recipes. 

Moving from our apartment to the house has been such a relief in so many ways, but my biggest and brightest happiness has come from cooking in my new kitchen. There is so much more room, and I do not think I can go back to cooking on an electric stove! We are so happy to have the extra room to make delicious meals in. 

We'll be hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year. We're hoping to complete our dining room before then, but for now we're letting it come together slowly. 

Again, I used Kingston frames from the Pier One clearance section to fill up this wall in the dining room. This display is to show off some of our favorite wedding pictures. 

Brandon's study is another work-in-progress that we hope to complete in the next few months. 

This our "den"or second living room.

We've yet to host an overnight guest, but we'll be ready for them when we do! 

One more extra bedroom that we're trying really hard to not fill with junk. 

I love our bedroom and the immediate feeling of relaxation I get when I walk through the door. 

The curtains are Kalah Blue Ikat by Duralee. I lined them with blackout lining fabric which makes them perfect for blocking out all that early morning sun on the weekends. 

Finally, here is our little square of concrete in the backyard. It's just big enough for the furniture we already had. 

Thanks for stopping by! (:
