Welcome!!

Hello Friends! Thanks for stopping by! Sassy is ready to greet you at the front door. This is our home we built 4 yrs. ago. We fell in love with a model home in the area and and decided to basically copy it and add a MAN's room. My husband Kevin had to have his big screen T.V. I've had so much fun decorating this house. When we moved from our old house we lived in my inlaw's basement for 7 months while our house was being built. During that time we saved as much money as we could. I worked at the interior shop and my boss was nice enough to let me buy at her cost at market! I also had things from my old house and shopped at TJ Maxx and antique malls. I hope to share ideas and get ideas from you. Please leave me a comment so I can visit you!



This is my cat CoCo. Can you see her? She blends in with the rug.


This is my son Chase. Last year we went to visit relatives in Minnesota. This is at the Mega Mall. I've never seen anything like it. It would take a month to look in all those shops! We were only there a few hours, you should have seen how fast I was looking! I would love to go back .



Thank you for visiting my blog! I will be posting more photos and ideas on a regular basis. Hope you will keep checking back. Leave me your comments, I would really like to get to know everyone ! I'm new to blogging, Thanks to Kim and Gollum for inspiring me to get started. Veiw my links and pay them a visit. They are amazing!
