I was able to sit down and enjoy an almost spotless home for about 15 minutes yesterday before I heard the first, "Uh Oh" that came right after a dropped cup of milk - lucky for me my dog licked it right up... This preceded the sandy footprints, crumbs on the floor, and toys thrown about in every room. But, that's life and that's my style.
I've had several people ask how I can manage to decorate with a son who likes to climb, crawl, run, and jump on everything! I don't purchase expensive items for a reason. I have a two year old and many of my friends that visit have children the same age. That doesn't mean I don't like nice things, I just keep things simple. My decor fits with our life and our home. Small items that are clean and simple with pops of color (usually teal haha). I also really like old pieces that go with the feel of our 1923 home.
More times than not if you visit you will see dishes in the sink, toys everywhere and smudges on surfaces. But, you'll also hear a lot of laughter, little feet running and songs being sung. Occasionally you will find my home "presentable" but those times only last for about 15 minutes!
But, here is one of those 15 minute moments from yesterday morning...welcome to my Fall home tour.
Thank you for stopping by - I truly appreciate it. You took time in your day to come here and that means so much to me. Have a blessed day!
