Antique Finds & House Progress

I wanted to show off our antique finds from last weekend.

Clint's's a Pepsi bank that sorts the coins in slots in the back, pretty neat

Love this sweet little silver lamp!

Couldn't pass up this bird picture!

I'm finally posting pictures of our living room after it has been painted. I have been waiting until I found curtains. I knew exactly what I wanted but it has taken me forever to find them. Actually, it has taken me forever to find a DEAL. You know I never ever buy without a sale. I found these jewels at Pier 1 for $8 bucks a panel...that was 4 for the price of 1 (regular priced)! It was even cheaper than buying fabric by the yard. It was like finding a treasure, it's the small things in life people!


After--We are still searching for a rug and some other accents.

Entry way--Notice the door is a different color than the walls? That was the original wall color...still thinking on what I want to do with it.

Den before

Still working on the den, but this is how it is so far.

I have already posted pictures of the bathroom since we painted (above), but Clint recently framed the mirror. It looks so much better.

I still plan on painting the cabinet.

A blog update

I do apologize to those of you who read my blog (if there are any of you still out there). I have been neglecting it just a bit lately. It's true what everyone says about being a home owner: It can be a blessing and a curse since there seems to always be something that needs to be done. However, we are looking at it as a blessing and trying not to let the projects consume our days. (Although, Clint seems to be better at this than I am.)

This weekend we made the decision to forgo painting since Clint is still fighting off a cold. Instead, we took it easy. We finally got around to walking around Kingsport's downtown area. We love the fact that it is lined with antique stores. And nothing makes for a better day in my mind than browsing around antique stores all day. That's exactly what we did and then of course went for some frozen yogurt, yummy! And both of us found some treasures, even better!

Weekend with the Girls

I spent this past weekend with my old roomies, Bridget and Sarah, for Sarah's bachelorette weekend. There was a lot of food, shopping and fun! How I miss my girls! Can't wait to see them again for Sarah's reception.

Getting ready to do some shopping
