Around the House

Happy New Year peeps!
2011 was a year for change in our home.
Looking forward to 2012 with much anticipation.

After getting all the Christmas goodies put away and vacuuming up the green things that fall from the tree all over the floor and down the hall (how do they get there?), I moved a few things around. 
Doesn't it feel good to get all the stuff put away, clean and simplify again!
I know I'm not the only one here?

The PB plates paired with some Goodwill plates and white napkins (Goodwill) are some of my favorite

A glass jar filled with old vintage silverware make a great centerpiece

Vintage suitcases, old silver and books..swoon!

Vintage locker baskets painted white and numbers added with plain shower
curtain rings

Table was a thrift find and antiqued 
Funny how my cheap pieces are some of my favorite pieces

I love these french inspired chairs, a splurge when we moved into this house

Have I shown you my kitchen?
I haven't? Welcome to the kitchen!!
My favorite room in this house!

A little green and silver...

I added some bookshelves to each side of our fireplace and it added a ton of warmth to the room.

I know I have just given you picture overload here...if you are still with me, thanks for sticking around!
Hope you enjoyed seeing some pictures around my home.
I have sooo many projects waiting to be finished this year and I look forward to sharing them with you. 

Have you been cleaning, reorganizing, moving things around?
It feels great to start a New Year!!

Did you notice my header is different? Thank you to my future son in law who spent some time changing it for me. Love ya C!

Have a wonderful Monday my friends!

I joined the party at:


  1. Yes I do love the feel of having almost everything back in its place and tidy again (well except for never ending dog hair.) Your home is lovely and I especially like your kitchen with the beautiful wood and great colours. I'm now following back and look forward to seeing more of your blog, and hopefully getting to 'know' you a bit. I noticed you have been married for 20 years, we celebrate our 20th this summer. Now I'm off to see more of your posts. Wishing you all the best in 2012.

  2. I really love the clock plate! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following you back!

  3. Love your style and love your barstools. I want some new ones and looked at some like yours on line yesterday.

  4. Happy New Year , Tiff! I noticed your new header right away! Nice work! All your pics look great. And your home is beautiful.

  5. Lovely home tour!! I have some vintage suitcases that I use too!
    Stop by for a visit...gift-giveaway going on!!
