Completely Normal

We re-arranged our master bedroom 2 weeks ago. Total time in our house: 6 months. I also replaced the curtains that I made. That's normal, right?

My mother-in-law gave me 8 old flour sacks, this is what I did with one of them.

What do you guys put your laundry in: yucky, run-of-the-mill, plastic baskets? Any better ideas out there?

That chandelier is Bryce's Father's Day gift. Not actually the crystal chandelier, I bought it for $5 last year at an estate sale. Having a light in our room was the gift, and he didn't have to do any of the electrical himself, which he abhors.

Have a great weekend.

This post took me 5.7 minutes to put together, two children, ahem, are in their room 'sorting out their feelings'.



  1. Well everyone's normal is different. My normal is to still live in a pretty much undecorated house over 2 1/2 years after I moved in...

  2. looks great! love the chair! Where is the mess? My room never looks like that. :)

  3. In a week and a half I'll finally be in my own home again. Pretty exciting. Will my decorating skills match yours? Hardly. But I am going to paint a dresser this week in preparation for the move. I hope the color I chose isn't terribly disappointing in person.


You're a valued reader, thanks for your comments, they help keep me sane....
