The other day I looked around my house and realized that my home finally feels settled. Sure, there are a few things I'd like to change, but I'm not constantly trying to tweak things like I used to. 🏡
I'm not sure that my home decor fits into a certain style, but it reflects ME and My Family. And that's what home should be: a reflection of the people who live there, not necessarily a certain style. 🍂
For years my home always felt a little bit off and incomplete. I needed someone to help me tie it all together. The Cozy Minimalist Course by @thenester helped me figure out why my home never quite felt settled. I learned what it takes to bring a room together. And it's not rocket science either! 🍁
My Little Bookcase has been looking so neat and tidy and pretty since we put our house on the market... but I think it's time it returned to BURSTING AT THE SEAMS! 😜I'm missing the books we put into storage! Would love you to describe your bookcase! #mylittlebookcase#shelfie#pocketofmyhome#welovebooks
I think this might be the prettiest book I own because it's so small and pink. I adore it really. I haven't read it yet but I enjoyed Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugindes so much that I have high hopes for this one also! I'll put the synopsis below! 😀
The haunting, humorous and tender story of the brief lives of the five entrancing Lisbon sisters, The Virgin Suicides, now a major film, is Jeffrey Eugenides's classic debut novel.
The shocking thing about the girls was how nearly normal they seemed when their mother let them out for the one and only date of their lives. Twenty years on, their enigmatic personalities are embalmed in the memories of the boys who worshipped them and who now recall their shared adolescence: the brassiere draped over a crucifix belonging to the promiscuous Lux; the sisters' breathtaking appearance on the night of the dance; and the sultry, sleepy street across which they watched a family disintegrate and fragile lives disappear.
I really want to change out these painted white shelves for a natural wood. Like a poplar or a light oak. Thoughts? Have you done this? What did you do?
The kitchen guy put in MDF and painted it. But it scuffs and isn't easy to wipe clean.
Han Solo, with his mate Chewbacca, too,
Return’d unto our lives one sweet December.
Their wit and cunning ever pull’d them through—
They were the rogues we did, with joy, remember.
How kind Han’s mentoring of Rey and Finn,
How tenderhearted with his Leia sweet,
How dashing with his boyish scoundrel’s grin,
How brave within the bold Resistance fleet.
And in his final hour, with his son Ben—
The errant boy turn’d to First Order knave,
The child who had become vile Kylo Ren—
Forsooth, then of himself Han Solo gave.
A tale of courage and a tale of woe,
Each page a journey—whither shalt thou go?

Oct 22nd #LyricallyBookishOctober is “That don’t impress me much” by Shania Twain-Overhyped book. I’m going with Red Queen for this one and I had to use my kindle for this one and snuck it on a #shelfie lol. So I really enjoyed the first book of this series but i did not like the second book very much at all. Book 3 was a step up but still disappointed in this series. I will read the next book because I believe it’s the conclusion only because I’ve already invested a lot of time in this series. *
Oct 22nd #BookstabestieOfFall is Trick or Treat-Trick Plot Twist. Using Red Queen for this also. Don’t wanna ruin it but for those who have read it it’s a total reminder of Hans from Frozen lol. *
Oct 23rd #BNDTPOct17 is Halloween-Psychotic character. Maven from this series—enough said. *
