So, here is my home! It's a mini-home tour for now. I need to rephotograph some other rooms and some rooms aren't complete. But I hope you enjoy this little peek into our Home! I think I'll put a link in my sidebar to this post and I'll just keep updating it as I take new photos and as home projects are finished. I honestly don't think there's anything I love more (or find more fulfilling) than decorating our home. It's truly like a big blank canvas. Thank-you for letting me share something so special to me (and my family). This was our very first home right after Ethan and I got married, and we are still here 12 years and two sons later. It's humble, it's not perfect, it's old and has been a fixer-upper... but it's perfect to us and means so much to our little family. Thanks for taking a look!
I will try and add source links for mostly everything I purchased for the rooms (I'll try to remember everything that is!) In case anything strikes your fancy and you want to know where it's from. : )

Boys' Shared Bedroom
Edited to add: (2/2011) Here are some new photos with some new finds I added to these vignettes. I'm particularly in love with the atomic style stand we're using as a place to stack books, sitting on top of the wardrobe. Also, some detail shots of the vintage letterpress tray with the boys' toys and other finds displayed.

(our house is covered in scenes like this created by Campbell these days... he is ALL about dinosaurs, and I can't complain about that at all. : )
More photos to come, but I thought I'd share these now since they are new. Will be adding other pics you've seen and new ones soon.
Thanks for taking a look!
