GIVEAWAY TIME {and a house update}!

Hello Old Friends!  

It has been over a month since I've been in this space.  I'm sorry.  But...SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED.  It seems like I should have plenty of time, but this was an easy thing to put off.  

Where have I been?

Moving in to OUR NEW HOUSE!  After over three months of living with my parents (sans internet), house hunting, and growing frustration, we finally found a house!  It is in a different area than we expected, but it put us closer to the metro area than we ever expected and it is working out great so far.  We got a lot of things on our "must have" list such as a beautiful kitchen, a shop, an extra bedroom, a master suite, and more.  

I've always taken a lot of pride in where I live and love to put my own touch on each place.  Now, we finally have our OWN house and I can really decorate and design the way I like to.  I will post a couple of teasers but FIRST I have to tell you about the AMAZING decals I ordered on Etsy.  

I came across a few great deals and ended up purchasing from Stephen Edward Graphics. I was surprised when they showed up promptly at my door, with extremely detailed instructions, and even a little freebie.  After sharing the picture of my first project, I knew these updates would be a HIT! 

This is our front door, which was made even more beautiful with this fantastic decal.  AND YOU CAN WIN ONE!!  I am teaming up with Stephen Edward Graphics to give one of YOU a FREE "HELLO" decal!!  Make sure to enter and share!!

This decal took me less than five minutes to "install" and looks totally fab on our front door.  People think I hand painted it, that's how great the decals are!  It is fairly large and matches our siding very well.  I absolutely love the way it looks!

A few days later, I got to refurbishing our mailbox.  I'm pretty sure the neighbors think I'm insane because I spent a day working on our mailbox.  Of all things...  But, let me tell you, it looks incredible.  Not only am I thrilled that we have our own mailbox, but it looks fabulous!
