Beginnings~

2010 is a big year for change around these parts.
Hello, my dear readers!! I'm finally back. I bet you all thought I fell off the face of the earth. Not quite. I just haven't had the internet since December 19. And although it's nice to be unplugged for a little while, 2 1/2 weeks is too long. I have missed my friends in blogland!!


A little house update. Many of you asked, but I might just be a little superstitious and I was afraid to jinx anything, so I didn't answer. Until now. Yes, we sold our little house. The sale was final December 30. I will miss my little house. But I am so excited for new decorating adventures!


I also had a lot of people ask where we were going. We moved to Utah (my home state) and are currently renting a house. It's a circa 1970's ranch that has been beautifully updated - and that's a good thing. Because since it is a rental, we aren't able to alter anything. I actually like the fact that I have constraints to work with because it makes me think creatively, and hopefully I'll be able to share ways to make a space your own without making permanent changes.


So welcome 2010! Glad to meet ya!


And hello to my new rented nest...glad to meet you too! Can't wait to make you my own!! (Don't worry....lots of photos to come!)


Have a great day~

Oh, how exciting. I can't wait to see your new nest & right now a rental is sounding really good to me - when something breaks you can just pick up the phone.;)

Congrats on the sale of the house and the new adventure. I am also renting and enjoying the constraints EXCEPT our house isn't beautifully updated. I am doing a little write-up this week on my blog about rental re-do tips!
Have fun decorating the new house! Can't wait to see what you do with it!

I have read your blog for a long time but never posted a comment. I love the things you do and am so excited to see your creativity with your rented home. I also live in a rented home and am always itching to paint walls, put up bead board or knock out a wall somewhere. I am excited to be inspired by you. Thank you.
