Who's your spokesman???

Many times i wonder what people's homes are saying about themselves...and many times the answers are so different. Many times i wonder what does my home say about me.. and in my head the answer would be like *oh, they went after the "no money" theme. they totally stole my idea* :P
We never spent hundreds of $$ on anything beside the main furniture pieces . But I've never invested too much in anything decor wise.. yet i try to work with different things i find, reinvent some others that i already own and mix them with new textures ,some layers and a crisp color scheme that i go after when it comes to our home decor.
Yet, one day i was thinking what's the thing from our home that describes me the best right now at this point. And after minutes and minutes of debating, i came to the conclusion that it's the paint brush and the white paint that describes me best.



Ever since we moved in this new home, i had this compulsive need to paint everything white: wood, plastic, metal, anything for that matter. My husband got a wee bit scared that i may paint him during sleep one night.. made a commitment not to, tough, and this is what brought him to sleep again:P

Now what's the thing in your home that represents you best. It can be a decorative object, it can be a flower pot, it can be a furniture piece, or it can be a game console.. anything for that matter! Just speak it out! And let us all know who's your spokesman:)

My favorite thing in my house right now it my little one's room. I am changing it out of the baby stage. She is going to be 2 in Oct. It is still a mess and I will post about it some time this summer. That is when I hope I am finished.

There is a certain look when you go with an all white room that is clean and airy. I love it...but alas, I have 3 young boys...'nuff said.

My baskets full of different yarns... I think they are beautiful as decorations & just handy for me to grab a skein & keep knitting...

I'm going to have a little think about what best represents me/my home and get back to you on it! Wanted to say *thanks* for stopping by my place!

OK I am a color girl out the ying-yang. We have a large room that's the kitchen, dining room and very small den area. 2 yrs ago my oldest son put up Christmas lights, colored of course, around the top of the walls at the ceiling in the whole room. I leave them up year round and when I need a pick-me-up during the year, I turn them on! I know, bizarre!!

Thanks for visiting my blog!! ♥

I would have to say that right now it is my new living room furniture, it was something totally out of my comfort zone and after having the same decor for way too may years I am excited to break out my paint brush (hopefully) this weekend and complete the look. I will be sure to post some before and afters.
