Welcome to our Little Newly Wed Life/Apartment..
I'm in love with it and after talking to my best childhood friends over the Christmas Break I realized that they are probably never going to get to see it in person..
& I really wanted to share it with you guys.. I know I love looking at home decorish stuff..
So really I can only assume you must [not debatable] love it too.
So welcome to our little Bingham apartment built in the 70's..
[As you will continue to see..]
This is [obviously] our entry way..
You may very well recognize these cute flower creations..
I made them while I was still living with my roommates..
[Possibly before Blake and I were even engaged..]
After moving from apartments of girls, with us to New Jersey, and back to Idaho.. my little toilet paper crafts are holding up pretty well..
Here is our Living Room/Dining Area..
[Yes you will probably receive commentary through this whole house tour you poor unfortunate souls.. you have permission to just ignore me]
I sewed that ruffle pillow in the middle of our couch..[My first and last throw pillow so far..]
& I love this picture because you can see our cute side table..I had to beg my sweet husband a little bit for this one because as far as surface area goes it could be a little more impressive.. but as far attractiveness goes..it was my favorite.
You can tell which one of us is the practical one...:)
& Here is our little dining table/area...
This is a close up of our table cloth.. BECAUSE this here is my first sewing project ever.
Woo wee and let me tell you it was a project.. But I love how it turned out.& My sweet Brother and Sister in law gave us this table before we were married and so my Mother in law helped me make this extensive creation.
[Thank goodness for in-laws huh..]And.. the chairs that I also absolutely love
[obviously I love everything or I wouldn't have picked it.. so really I apologize the need that I feel to repeat to you that I love it a thousand times..]
.. Were a wedding gift from my sweet patient parents who helped us hunt all over Idaho Falls to find some that matched with our table
[Since I had already made the table cloth so OF COURSE we could not let them buy us another table set.. haha]But they did a really great job helping us find these..
Thank you everyone for all of this.
Although this commentary is getting a little long..I also want to point out my sweet TURTLE SHELL bowl from the Zoo..
Probably one of my favorite decorations.. if that tells you anything about the weird things that I love.
Yes.. This little random shelf here.. originally I actually asked our managers if we could just saw it off.. since who really knows of it's purpose..
[I will let you guess the answer I got to that question..]
But it's actually growing on me.. it's fun to have little areas to decorate.
Here is that good ol' side table again..
& My Creative Mother made this little tile work or art... I LOVE it.
And here you enter our Living Room..
I don't know what it is about flower arranging.. but I guess ever since our wedding it seems to be something I just do..
[Maybe nothing is as stressful as making all of your wedding flowers so everything is easy now..]
But I put together that little hanging basket to match that favorite lovely wall mural of mine above the couch..
& Here is a little bit of the other side of the room..
As well as our awesome rug.. hiding our gross 70's carpet.
The husbands favorite part of the room..
I don't know if it is the TV/Apple TV/Surround Sound/Candy Dish..
I think they are all a close tie for first for him.
Which is good because it means he lets me decide all of the rest of the room.
Oh.. compromise.[& my sweet Blake who really would probably let me decorate how I wanted anyway to make me happy even if he didn't have his oh so loved TV and Star Bursts.. I married one good man.]
& That actually concludes our house tour of today..
I figured you all would probably die of boredom if I did this through the whole rest of the apartment in one post..
SO I will show you the rest of our cozy apartment through out the week.
I love you all and really wish that you all could be here with me & hope this feels a little more like you are.
Have a Wonderful Tuesday Night in Your Own Cute Homes!
