the beginning... and a few projects

I'm  excited to share a bit of my life with you all! I'm not at all sure how to start this blog, so I'll start with my winter mantel. 

Big sister and I took down the pumpkins and had fun arranging this, though I'm not sure if the branches are quite right. The picture is an old fabric print that I found while rummaging in my mother's scrap basket. So much fun, never know what I'll find!

Just look at this little table! I found it on craigslist yesterday, it really wanted to come home with me. I'm thinking a coat of paint is what it needs. It's hard to tell in the picture but it has a lot of water rings on the top.
