Orla Kiely Pillows


I have had my eye on the Orla Kiely Target Collection since word was given they would sell her items. I currently have 1 large letter box and the green pitcher, which will serve as a vase in the office. I absolutly love the pears and the colors but sadly, they don’t match my kitchen, however, they do match our office plans.

We are going to place our tan IKEA futon in the office to serve as part guest room. I had no use for the table cloth in her collection but love the print so I turned it into pillows, I was inspired to do so by Surya from Wee Gallery. They will go on the futon and I will still get my Orla in the office.


The Starting of my Blog

photo2I would have loved to start this blog 6 months ago when we bought our house back in October of 2008. The process was so quick that we had a house in one month.  I guess we were so excited to start working on the house and getting it done before our wedding that we didn’t even think twice about blogging the process. 

We only listed a couple of houses on our notepad that we were interested in and ended up with the first one we looked at. We got a 79 year old cute little 1,000 sq. ft house. It was built in the 1930s and is in great foundation condition. The house really has some vintage character, which is my dream! We got the house for such a great deal there is no way we could pass it up, sure it needed some work, but not too much we can’t handle. This transforming house stuff really makes you learn things you never thought you could do.
