I love our little home. I wish I could describe it, but I don’t know what I would say? I can tell you that Trevor and I are pretty simple, in that we don’t feel like we need a lot of things to be happy. Most of the decor in our home has some sort of special meaning or connection to us. They’re things that make us smile.

Living room, with a piano for playing. When I moved away from home for the first time, I used to rent a piano for my apartment. I finally was able to purchase one from a piano shop that was going out of business. I used to play Mozart, but now it’s mostly the theme song from the Pirates of the Carribbean. 😉



A friend who is an artist and knows me well, created this painting as a gift for me. This painting is bright and cheerful and happy, but doesn’t let anyone take advantage of their kindness and happiness.


J gave this framed Beatles quote to me, and I love it so much. It was also the last song they played at my wedding. It’s sitting in front of The Hungry Caterpillar~because of Little T and my love for children’s literature.


Above our old t.v., we keep cards from friends and family.


The kitty card holders were a gift from my Mom. One for each cat that lived in our house.


And on the other side of the living room, are the dishes for entertaining. Next to them are Big T’s wedding vows in a frame.


This poor succulent had started to wilt, but is doing much better now. We love succulents and have a garden of them. You can’t see it in this picture, but on the other side of the wall is another plant that my teacher/friend, Der, gave to me when my Grandmother passed away.  I can’t tell you how comforting that plant is, and I think of my Grandma from Oklahoma every time I walk by it. 20130715-103744.jpg

That’s the living room. Next home tour, I’ll show you my gnome collection. It is amazinggggg. 😉
