Our Home Featured! {plus a few extra shots}

{getting some energy out jumping on the couch after his first day back to school} 

Woo hoo! We are honored to have our home featured on 2 blogs today. Little Gatherer said some really sweet words about Scarlet's room and they've included an interview with pictures. And Holly Marie Designs did a little interview with me a few weeks ago and Holly is also sharing a few of her favorite pics of our home. Thank you ladies for the wonderful features! When I stare at my yucky couch and think of how much I'd like to throw it in a garbage dump, features like these make me feel much, much better. At least there are lots of other great spots. 

I thought I'd add a couple of pictures here that were not included in these features. :) 
This particular shot of the living room (below) is one that I have never shared before because of the mess involved against this wall. A TV usually seems to be so ugly though doesn't it? It's a mixed up puzzle of cords, at least ours is, and there are many! My husband is a gadget guy and he loves his electronics. So we have EVERYTHING. Good for the guys, not so great for me. As you can see much of the mess is obscured with quilts and afghans, and thank goodness for those. Come winter they are a very real presence in our home - ha! They are constantly moving about as the bodies roam the halls. All this to say, I was inspired by the TV gallery walls I've been seeing a few brave souls creating and pinning (here and here). So I gave it a go with that map of Paris and a couple of vintage prints I painted over. Looking better already I think ... 
Full disclosure: I'm ready for a new house. I LOVE my house, I really do, but I get restless in the same place for such a long time. It's been 8 years you guys. Crazy! But no, we're not going to move ... I just love to dream and dream about the next place. Eventually we will move somewhere else but for now I'm just going to play with what I have. I'm a wanderer when it comes to homes (and my rooms tend to have furniture in a constant stage of motion and change as well). But just as they say Not all who wander are lost. Cheesy! And so true (serious face).
