Around the House

Cameras + Books = two of my favorite things.
An old camera case, given to us by B's grandmother.
Remember this DIY project from forever ago? 
We decided to hang the fabric pieces over our new/old bed. We'll probably re-do the bedframe, but for now, we like how beat up it is.
A little self portrait action.
A little dog portrait action.
Our new home is slowly begin to feel like our space. There are so many things we'd like to do and my wish list for the space feels never ending, but until we've found gainful employment, we're going to make do with what we have. Being forced to not buy anything new (this includes flea market and vintage finds) reminds me that what we already have is enough. Sometimes it takes a fresh perspective or a fresh coat of paint to see an item in a new way. Other times it take a healthy dose of gratitude and a spoonful of humility to make you realize that everything you need is already in front of you.

I just love this post. I feel the same way sometimes - like the list of things I want to do, add, buy, change, etc. is never ending. Thanks for the reminder that I really do have all that I need - bookshelves and books to fill them being some of my most precious possessions. From the looks of things, we have a lot of the same books on our shelves, too :)

Thanks again, Christina, for the reminder to feel grateful for our lives of plenty.

From what I can see your home looks so lovely. We're hoping to buy our first home within the next 6 months and all I can think about is how to decorate our little space! Cannot wait!

it's looking great so far. We have to wait until November to buy furniture (we only had one love seat and two bar chairs at our little apt) but I'm having so much fun playing house in the meantime. Your decor looks great, Christina.
