Saying goodbye to our first home



Hey there! It has been a whirlwind these last few weeks. We have been cleaning out, moving furniture, and prepping our house to sell. All the hard work and stress has paid off for us. Just after 16 days on the market our house sold!! We couldn't be more excited that our first little home we built can now be appreciated by another sweet couple. 




Now that we prepare to build our dream home, we are looking forward to the next chapter in our lives. We cannot wait to begin building.




In the last month we have also bought a lot in a great neighborhood to raise our future family, designed an amazing open floor plan, and found an (inspiration house) exterior that we want our house to look like.





I'm mostly looking forward to choosing all the materials and putting those special touches throughout the house. Of course, my main concern will be design and decorating decisions. 





I pray I don't get too stressed out during the building process, the planning part was fairly easy, for the most part. Construction should begin in September and take 6-8 months to finish. I'll keep you posted on the process. 






Now the FUN part begins. . . packing and moving everything out that we've accumulated over five years. 

Thank you for stopping by.

I hope you have a great week!

American Picker's Store (Antique Archaeology)

Over a month ago we went to Nashville for a weekend trip and while we were there we stopped in the American Picker's store (Antique Archaeology). The line looked a lot worse than it really was- we waited maybe 15 minutes at the most. It was so cool to see things actually picked by Mike and Frank from the TV show and then seeing it being sold in their store.  


This old distressed cabinet had to be my most favorite piece in their store! 


Just look at the layers of chippy paint. . . and those drawers.


The repurposed lamps and lighting completely had my creative wheels spinning. I loved how they turned porcelain lights, old funnels, and metal buckets into wall sconces, lamps, and pendant lights.










Unfortunately, we didn't buy any merchandise, except t-shirts. :) Everything was so pricey, but the experience and inspiration was worth going. If you're ever in Nashville you should definitely check it out.

Thanks for stopping by.
