This past weekend was the two year anniversary of when Nate and I moved into our first, very own house.
Sadly, this means that in two years, I have not painted one wall nor hung up one picture. Well, unless you count Christmas cards. Do hanging up Christmas cards count?
No? Sigh, I didn’t think so either.
In my defense however (wow, I say that a lot on this blog), it took us awhile to save up for furniture and curtains so we’re just now really at the wall-decorating stage. That and it takes me forever to make up my mind and decide what I want.
Sooooo, this is THE year of color and wall decor!
Which is why this past weekend, my sister and I took a trip to a nearby Christmas Tree Shop and Homegoods store. You know, for inspiration and ideas.
And to take pictures of our winter boots in mirrors.
It was for inspiration purposes only, of course.
It’s amazing how inspired I felt, just walking through the rows filled with colorful gadgets and gizmos. Inspired and motivated.
I totally take this home decorating seriously!
The funny thing is that I left the Christmas Tree Shop without mirrors, or vases, or pretty frames for my wall. I left with peanut butter, as did my sister.
And I left the HomeGoods store with yet another cookbook, as apposed to paintings, or pitchers, or table runners.
Priorities, people. It’s all about priorities.
But, yeah, I suppose it is time to add some color… All these white walls are making me just a little crazy.
Do you know what you want, right from the beginning? Or does it take a ton of planning and browsing before you find the perfect items for your home decor?
