In The Beginning...

As I mentioned in my last post...I got married! And I moved!

We left our tiny apartment and found a great two bedroom house to call home. We now live in a town with tons of history, so I'm enjoying mixing my love of all things vintage with the old adobe mission style of the area.

Over the next months, I will take you through all of our upcoming home projects. Being a newly married couple, we each have a few pieces we love, in addition to a number of hand-me-down items. On a tight budget, we are determined to makeover our space, one project at a time!

Let's start with pictures of our blank slate...

Great blank slate but needs some work! Next time, I'll show you the status after moving in our belongings. After that, we'll get working on some projects!

Stay tuned! :)

Fresh Start!

Hi all.

Well, it's been over a year since I posted, and a lot has happened since then! First of all, I got married! That pretty much consumed my life for 5 months. We were married on June 5th. As if that weren't enough, we moved shortly after! We left the cookie-cutter town we lived in and headed south about 20 minutes. We now live in one of the oldest cities in California and are loving being surrounded by all of the character and culture!

We are renting a great two bedroom house (which is such an upgrade from my husband's tiny one bedroom apartment we started out in). Now that wedding craziness is over, I want to pick up design, once again, and get this blog rolling...once again. :)

So, next time I'll post a tour of our new home as it was when we moved in. Over the next months, I will take you along as we settle in, decorate, redecorate, tweak, and do fun projects!

For now, below are a few of our engagement and wedding pictures, taken by the talented Mike Radford.
