Yesterday my daughter and I stopped at two estate sales. I found a new necklace for my girl. She lives on my studio table. And I found these two beautiful pairs of earrings. I just love them!
Our estate sale stops were worth it!
I think I may try to make a trip to a couple of thrift stores today and look for more vintage jewelry.

My husband built three very tall bookshelves that I am painting creamy white. They will be side by side along one wall. And after they are in place my husband is going to nail trim on the fronts where they meet to cover the edges, and crown molding along the top - so when they are done it will look like a built-in wall of bookshelves. Between our school books, and all the other books we have had in this room, they will be pretty full. (We love books at our house - all three kids have bookshelves in their rooms that are full or overflowing; Greg and I have two bookshelves in our room; there are bookshelves in our den upstairs, and our family room downstairs.) So here they are in their current condition.
These pictures are a wall that is in progress. This window has some vintage jewelry and other things hanging on it - it will eventually have more pretties on it - and it may change periodically as I find new things that I want to hang. This will kind of be my bulletin board.
My sister gave me this wonderful candle holder for my birthday this year. It is one of my favorite things I have! It looks so pretty hanging by this old window.
I made these two little bulletin boards. And I made the thumb tacks by gluing old jewelry onto thumb tacks. Eventually there will be four hanging in a row - one with pictures of me and my husband, and one for each of my kids - all decorated similar to these two - and I will add a photo or two on each one. I am pretty happy with them so far. After I get all four up and photos on them I will post more pictures.
This is the corner of my desk. I like the look of this corner - the rustic quality of the girl, and the silver and bling next to her. This is the look and feel that I want this whole room to have.I will add more pictures as I get more done in this room. For now, thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

For the last couple of weeks I have been reading some of the most amazing blogs. Women who have created beautiful homes, and now are creating beautiful blogs to show us their homes. I created this blog about a year and a half ago. But I did not know anything about it, never figured out how to post a picture, I posted a few times, it was very boring. I gave up. But the beautiful blogs I have been visiting lately have inspired me to try again. And I actually figured out how to upload this picture of my basement family room all by myself -- I am so proud! I usually have to get my kids to help me with a new computer thing.
I want to get a different template for my blog, but at the moment all I know how to do is choose a pre-set template. I will have to investigate this very soon. If I am going to make this blog as beautiful and inspiring as the blogs I have been reading, I have a LOT of learning to do. So come back soon and see if I have figured out anything else! And have a great day!
