Couple More Rooms

 So... I just have to let go of the fact that things aren't going to be completely "finished" around here for a while, and I'll just post rooms as they are, and when I put finishing touches on them, I can post 'em again! =)

Here's our bedroom (I just got new bedding and I love it!)

 This bedroom is soo much brighter than our other one was!

 The decorative pillows are probably my favorite part =)

The dining room...

Still no window treatments of any sort.   Who knows if and when that will happen... =)

 I love all the windows and bright light in here and the wood floors are so pretty!

Philip just put this shelf up for me last night and I think it might be my favorite thing in the whole house!  It's like a "mantle" in my dining room (and you know how much I like mantels). =)
My favorite part is how easily I can change things around when I want to, instead of being committed to a few nails in the wall.
Yes, I bought the glass bottled drinks for us to drink, but then when I got them home and saw how pretty the colors were... they just had to go on the shelf (and I bought more for us to drink) =)

 Things have already been switched around two or three times =)

This is my idea for a "guest book".   They are painted tongue depressors: 1) because we have TONS of them, and 2) because well, we Do have a doctor in the house, so it goes with the theme.
Guests just choose a color, and write their names, the date and something about their visit.  Once I have a bunch, I'll probably make something out of them.

See, I already changed it.    I added some roses from our bush =)

Just as long as the tongue depressors don't get too depressing... oh boy. Cool idea!! It will be interesting to see what you put on that shelf!!!

I LOVE your pictures :) I think it was a good idea to put your pictures up now... I wanted to wait until everything was perfect, but I finally posted them. And now I'm so glad I did, because it's been 4 months, and things still aren't perfect! At least then I had the excuse of only just having moved in... :)

I LOVE your new bedding set. The colours are great!
I think the dining room is one of my favourite parts of your house...
I love the new shelf too. It's so bright and cheerful, and I know you'll have lots of fun changing it up!
I'm excited to see what you'll come up with with your guest tongue depressors. How fun!

I love that shelf! I was just looking online trying to find a shelf similar to that for my boy's room. Where did you find it?

Kendra, the shelf is the Ribba picture ledge from IKEA. =)
