~ a thoughtful friend & rearranging furniture ~

you know those days when you go to the door
to check the mail
and you realize...

getting a package in the mail is lovely!

getting a package in the mail is heaven.

and when it is something as beautiful as this...

well... it makes me feel super loved.

Thank you, Carolyn.

I love it.
don't you love how it looks like that bow is coming off the back of my head.... Dorkgirl!

Okay! Onto moving around furniture.

Who doesn't love moving around furniture?

My friend actually said something funny the other day and that was when her son sees that she's been watching HGTV, he just knows he'll probably have to help her move furniture around.

I thought that was super funny and I can totally relate!

Don't you just love HGTV?

Anyhow, this is what my living room looked like

don't you love the Daphnie pose.

and this is after:

so. the room totally seems more open and I love that!

and this room is totally a work in progress...
I still need to figure out a paint color for this room and paint it
the old stove pipe needs to be removed and patched, as well as the wall.
and the list goes on and on.

I think it is crucial to be happy where your at in the process when you can't  afford to renovate your whole house the way you would like to
& signing up for those free HGTV homes just isn't working. =)

So here we are - we have lived in this house for about 5 years. We've got the weird stove pipe hanging out from the ceiling, hideous crown molding and a weird cream colored wall with dingy denim couches and don't forget the Disney Channel 24/7 and little boys who like to tear the pillows off couches and leave the sippy cups dripping on everything in sight. (complaining? whining? me? no. :)

but I'll tell ya - this room totally makes me smile every time I walk into it.

and that's what is important!

Do you like to rearrange your furniture?

Growing up my mom rearranged furniture probably once a month - her excuse? To vacuum under it! I love to rearrange. We don't do it very often in our living room because there aren't many options for the way the room is laid out, but we do rearrange the kids room and our family room often!

I LOVE the new look of your room!

First of all: yes! it completely opens up the space and I love it!
Second: I move the furniture around, all. the. time. It's become a bit of a joke, really. I'll be cleaning the house and then think "hey that vase would look great in this room..." And then the chore I was working on is abandoned and the house is torn apart and then put back together. Love it.
