Thanks for your comments yesterday. Just to clarify…I’m good with my random style. I think I try for “clean & classy” because I appreciate how others pull it off in their homes so well. I am a big supporter of the idea that a home should reflect the ones that live there. Not everyone likes to decorate. Not everyone likes pictures hot glued to their walls. Not everyone likes PotteryBarn (well maybe that one isn’t true to some extent!). Anyway, thanks for your comments….you guys are so encouraging! In the picture below (top right corner) you can see a bit of all that ‘junk’ I nailed to the wall last week. I need to spray paint some frames and then I’ll share more pictures of it.
For those of you that live in areas that feet of snow is normal….well around here this much snow means kids can’t walk to bus stops (they don’t have proper attire for the cold), every 1/10th mile a car is stuck in snow, all the grocery stores shelves are empty and guys with big trucks want to show off their 4 wheel drive on the roads. I’ve actually enjoyed the break from routine, but I’m ready to get back in our groove soon.
Just to note, the markers on the windows are Crayola Window Markers. The boys have really enjoyed them. Our wonderful neighbor cleared our driveway. Aren’t great neighbors the best. I remember asking my mom’s next door neighbor for sugar a few years ago and the teenage son was baffled by the idea that I asked to borrow sugar. He had never heard of neighbors doing that…made me sad. I have great neighbors…who kindly give me an egg or sugar when I’m making cookies and realize I don’t have all I need…..and clear our long driveway with a smile, asking nothing in return.
