Pillows!

Side Note: I’ve took the plunge and started learning all about our SLR camera…..by reading the manual.  Also, I’ve started taking the pictures in the camera’s manual mode.  These pictures are no way perfect, but I’m having a blast learning more about photography!!  If there are any references/websites you suggest for beginners, PLEASE let me know!

On to the updates...


What a difference some new pillows can make!  A BIG thanks to my mom for completing these beautiful pillows for me!  First up, our formal living room….our as we call it, our “piano room!”







This is the EXACT piano I used to learn how to play when I was a little girl!  My grandma was so very nice and offered it to Derek and I ….all the way from South Dakota!




Of course the Little Man had to get in every shot of mine!  He was doing his “model” look of peering off into the distance =)




Brown and white zebra stripe for the family room….can’t show a full picture because of a project currently happening in there….
 



Oh, and to throw another little house update in here, look what I picked up over the weekend…our first holiday decoration!!





Ok, Ok…you want to know about the project happening in the family room……I’ll give you a sneak peak….


More to come later….
