Early Spring Mantel




I didn't plan on a "Spring" mantel.  I just shopped the house and made a couple of simple crafts, and when I looked at the photos - I saw Spring.

And the Wall Came Down...


The wall comes down! 
 Hallelujah!



One of the big projects we wanted to do in our home which we've been in for about 3 years is to take down the wall between the dining room and family room.

Christmas Home Tour 2014

Welcome back!  It feels like I've been gone forever and I have really missed you all! 


We took down the wall between the tv room and the dining room.  I will be doing something with the wood in the future, but Thanksgiving came too fast, and then it was the Christmas season.  All our projects have been put on hold until after the holidays.  So in the middle of all our unfinished projects - welcome to our Christmas Home Tour!

White and Wood Family Room


I have made some subtle changes to the family room.  It is now a completely neutral room.  I just love the white and wood combination.

Megan's Rustic Wood Headboard

It has been about 6 months since I last posted here at the Long Awaited Home.  Life just got in the way, my old laptop died, and I just didn't feel like figuring out my new laptop.  We have had lots of changes in our family.  The first big change is our daughter Megan joined the US Air Force.  I will post more about that later, but this post is about the headboard that she and her dad made together before she left.  It is just a quick post to get my blogging feet wet again.  One of the reasons I have some time to blog again (and figure out this silly Chromebook) is that I was hit by a car almost 2 weeks ago and I have some serious injuries.  I'm recovering, and have felt much better the last 2 or 3 days, but more on that later too.

Megan has a loft above our two car garage in what was once an old barn.  She loves to decorate, and has her own ideas and style.  She wanted to make a rustic headboard for the little nook where her bed resides.
