Daily Work in Progress

 
 
I've been hesitant to show pictures of our house lately because nothing is finished.
 
Every room is sort of finished. You know?
 
Really it takes time and love to get it where you want it.
 
We've been here 4 months and I guess we've made pretty amazing progress when I think about it.
 
The best thing that has been added to the family room so far is the drapes and pillows made by
 
 
I just can't sing her praises enough!
 
She reads my mind.
 
She takes this bosporus fabric which has been around forever and makes it fresh.
 
 
I would love to show you a better pic of the drapes but I'm challenged in photography skills.
 
My goal for 2013 is to get a DSLR camera and learn how to use it correctly.
 
 
There's more progress being made here today which I'm very excited about!
 
 
Cabinets are being installed in this niche and in hubby's office.
 
Things are coming together. :)

I love Sonya! I have a table runner she made me and it's gorgeous! It takes awhile to make a house a home. There are many of us who would love to start from scratch like you are. Enjoy the process. The cabinets are going to look great in that niche!

XO,
Jane

It takes time to get a house together then it's never really "done" anyway. It's looking good!

It's looking more Staceyfied! Loooove that toile, can't believe you have been hoarding that. Everything you have shown so far looks beautiful! Can't wait to see the cabinets.

It's fun to see things come together to make a house a home. I am not familiar with Sonya, but her work looks really nice. I like the colors you are using and your vignettes are so pretty.

Sonya is my favorite seamstress...she is sooo good at it.
I am enjoying my runner she made.
Everything is looking great at your new house. Just take your time and don't put anything in it unless you love it to pieces...then, the house will become YOU. :)

Your pillows and drapes are very pretty. I love the pictoral fabric.
Hey, I appreciate the process of getting things the way you want them. It all takes time. Your pictures look great. But I understand what you mean. I want a new camera too.

Kim said...

Oh how exciting!!! You lucky girl getting to start all over again in a new house. I LOVE Sonja! She is super-talented. Love your drapes and pillows!!! Have fun decorating.

What a beautiful space you have to work with! Things will come together, don't worry. And just when you think you have everything "done," you'll start REdecorating! And as far as your pictures go, I can't say enough about ShootFlyShoot. I've had a DSLR for years, but sadly I never took it out of auto mode until signed up for their Photography 101 class. I'm still learning, but it has made such a big difference!

I LOVE the Bosporous toile, it looks fantastic in there!!! I can't wait to see more of your beautiful home! And I know what you mean about sharing, just do it and then you can re-share! ;) I waited and waited and waited and realized I would never show it because it's never really "done", lol :)
