I have a new love. I can't help it. It's this place called Pinterest. It's a place where you can keep all of your inspiration in one place! Like a style board, but online! Mine is not as organized as it should be. It has lots of things on just a few boards. There are so many wonderful ideas out there and I need to keep up with all of them! Love that I can do that in one place!

We may be moving soon. Yeah, I  know, I've been saying that for 2 years........or longer! Honestly, I do love my house so much and I could live there for the rest of my life. But....I can't WAIT to find another house! We will probably move into something and do a little renovating. I've never done that before! We've always built from the ground up. We have built 4 houses.....this house for almost 6 years! We've never lived in one house for more than 2 before.......oh, it's going to be a tough one to pack!

I've been using Pinterest to "gather" my ideas into one place. Some are way too elaborate to use in my home, but I can figure out ways to use them, hopefully! I love these barstools. How fun to use truck springs.......I just have to find some! Do you think they will shrink a lot when an adult sits on them? I don't really care.....I think they rock! I have this on my board, "for the home". It's from ApartmentTherapy.....a super cool, full of awesomeness website! Notice the wood on that island....I need to go to Southern Accents and start my own little (big) corner for all the wood I need from the Gym!

I doubt I will use this in the new house....but, oh my, how much fun??? I can't even imagine using those stairs...ever! I don't know where the credit for this idea is. It doesn't have a website listed. If you know where this came from, I would love to give credit!

I'm super excited about this.........
I just got off the phone with one of my sweet friends, Lynn Elkins. She just called and is going to do a house portrait for me! I saw one she had placed on Facebook and asked about it. She called this morning and gave me all the details! She's going to come by next week and take a photo. This is the example she placed on facebook. If you are interested, let me know and I can get you her information!! She's super talented!! I can't wait!
