Its only 4 days in to this new year and already things have started going so crazy that I’m just plan ol’ having trouble keeping up!
This past weekend Alex and I went out and did some more shopping for stuff around the house. We also went antiquing and found a couple of items that we’ve earmarked for future possibilities. Then we also managed to get rid of a bunch of stuff that we no longer needed.
It’s very much out with the old and in with the new sort of mentality around our household right now. Well, ok it’s more like out with the old and in with the old (but new to us) type mentality, but we try. Still, in all of this my absolute #1 favorite thing we got rid of…
Were these BLUE blinds.
Who on earth thought up blue window blinds? I mean, they are annoying enough as is, why on earth did you decide to make them blue? (or pink, green, or pretty much any other color with the exception of white and cream) In their place Alex hung up new curtains.
Personally, I think our bedroom now looks like “home.” I know, such a strange concept when its our furniture and décor and clutter (please ignore my clutter) that has been in the room for eleven months now, but the curtains just make me walk in and go “Home!”
In fact, in every dorm room, apartment, and now our house that I’ve lived in the first thing I want to do is hang curtains. That takes it from just being a dwelling to being our home. What about you? What is that makes your house go from just a cookie cutter house or apartment or dorm room to your “home” no matter how long you are living there?
